Recovery Zone - Shot from the collar

Published:

Your approach shot into the green on a par four takes a big bounce, bounds through the green and rests up against the collar of rough that divides the rough and the fringe.

It’s an especially common scenario in the summer when the greens are firm so you need to make sure you’re prepared and know how to overcome this awkward situation.

TG Elite Teaching Pro Rob Watts demonstrates the best way to play this shot in this invaluable golf video tip. After practicing it for a while, you’ll be able to knock it close from lies up against the collar every time.
