TIP: ELIMINATE ALL CHUNKS
Hitting it fat out of the rough is a product of the backswing. If you make your normal swing, keeping the club low to the ground going back, you’ll come down too shallow and catch the grass behind the ball. To avoid this, make a steeper takeaway, hinging your wrists quicker from the start (left). This sets up a sharp descent back to the ball for clean contact. Open the face slightly at address, aim left, and hold your wrists firm through impact. You’ll catch it flush and hit a little fade. —Butch Harmon, Golf Digest Teaching Professional
