BAD LIES DON’T MEAN BAD HOLES

Hitting your driver into thick rough doesn’t neccessarily mean a bad hole – just as long as your next step is the right one.

Hitting your driver into thick rough doesn’t neccessarily mean a bad hole – if your next step is the right one.
Resist the urge to take a mighty swipe at the ball with a long iron in the hope you’ll reach the green. Chances are the ball will dribble a few yards into some even worse rough.
The smart thing to do is to either drop out and take the penalty shot if you feel your ball is unplayable, or use a lofted iron to get the ball up and out of the rough and into a good position on the fairway from where you will have a good chance of getting it near the hole with your next shot.
That would give you the chance of a par if you can nail your putt, or at worst, a bogey with a two-putt green.
