70 Yards from Semi Rough to a Tight Pin – Adam Scott

You tugged your tee shot just a bit left, into the first cut of rough.

Approximately 70 yards to the pin.  A tight pin.

Who better to show us how to hit this one than Adam Scott, courtesy of Titleist Golf’s Script Notes.

Scott executes the 68-yard shot from the semi-rough with height and spin, and stops his Pro V1 near the back, left pin.

“I know the ball’s going to do its job, it’s just up to me to do mine,” Scott affirms.

Adam Scott:  We’ve got about seventy yards to the hole from the left semi-rough. We’ve got a shot just coming in over the left side of the green and that’s why we don’t have the whole green to work with. The ball is sitting okay. It’s not the best lie but it’s not the worst either. The idea here is to play some kind of shot with high end spin. It has to be hit with aggression, just like every other shot. Assertive aggression. The golf ball has to have the versatility as well. It’s got to be able to hit the high soft one that comes down dead. It’s got to hit a low checker. Here in this case, it’s got to hit the high soft one with spin out of the rough. I know the golf ball is going to do its job, so it’s just up to me to do my job.
