Out of the rough
Step 4

Keep the hands firm so the clubface remains square to the ball through the shot and is not tugged off line by the grass.

In long grass or heather, you need to use all your body weight not just your arms to free the ball.

Emphasising the weight shift onto your front foot and the turn of your hips to help generate even more power.

Feel yourself continue to turn after the ball has gone.
