Golf Tips from Justin Leonard: How to Get Your Ball Off the Edge of the Rough
In this short video, professional golfer Justin Leonard shares his insights on how to get your ball off the edge of the rough. Join Justin as he shares his tips and tricks for successfully navigating this difficult shot.
"It's a bit of an unlucky break that the ball didn't roll into the rough, which would have been a little more predictable. Instead, it rolled right up against the edge of it.
Therefore, I'm going to belly this wedge. I want to use the leading edge of this club like it's my putter. This is going to require a little more of a descending blow because I want to try and take the grass out from behind the ball.
So, I'm going to take my putting grip, putting setup and just hit slightly down on it to get it rolling through this Bermuda Fringe and up onto the green."
