|I see even fairly accomplished golfers struggle to make solid contact from the rough, especially the thick stuff. It shouldn’t be that difficult, though. I mean, even from the juicy stuff that we play out of in tournaments such as the US Open it is possible to make a decent strike and generate good distance.
