I'm in the tropics at 5000 feet, amazing weather. We have thick matted Kituku fairways with unusually thick grass roots down there, in some places the grass is about an inch long. For long shots it is fine, no run but the altitude compensates. But when pitching the grass/roots can grab the club and the ball laughs at me as it sits there!
My local pros like L grind, I am using M grind. (When I use the vokey wedge selector tool I am recommended S and M grind, which seems to me to be correct for the ground but the tool does not consider the grass)
When pitching we are supposed to use the bounce. But but but but ....the grass grabs my club.
I am shallow in attack. Do I need to
1) pick the ball clean
2) sharpen the leading edge, so its a knife
3) other ......
Yes I know the right answer is to scarify the fairways but the owners are not doing this, they have been told!!!!!
