The rescue club gets its name for precisely this reason. Where mid-irons fail to achieve a consistent strike and regular distance from tricky lies in the rough, rescue clubs come to the fore with their forgiving shape and clubface, making them the best choice.
But you still need to apply to right technique. Otherwise you could find yourself in more trouble than you started with, leaving you wishing you’d reached for the short iron instead. TG Elite Teaching Pro Gareth Johnston shows you how to pull off the rescue club shot from the rough every time.
