If, like me, your ball occasionally ventures off the fairway into the semi-rough (in my case this is a frequent occurrence), you’ll find this short video relevant.  We’ve all hit shots out of the grass which haven’t gone as far as we expected, and our playing partners have shouted encouraging comments, but have you looked closely at your lie?  Not just noticed whether the ball is sitting up or not, but actually examined which way the grass is lying?  It matters!

In this short video Maureen Madill points out what to look for – it may save you a shot or two!
