When golfers are faced with lies in deep rough, there’s a bit of a guessing game that goes on as it pertains to how the club will interact with the grass. The physics of the situation tells us that the leading edge and hosel will be grabbed by the grass, closing the face, so why not play for that probability? Set up to the ball with a more open clubface, swing easily and let the difficult lie do the work of squaring the club for you.
