It all depends on the depth of the rough, I have a 'ROUGHOMETER' in my head, on a scale from 1-5, 1 is almost no rough, ball sitting up and 5 is when the ball is burried. I choose my shot accordingly. My grip gets tighter as I go up the 'ROUGHOMETER' as well. One of the important things to remember is to take the club back more steeply on the backswing to ensure you come down on top of the ball more, for heavier rough. One thing I've found is that my club tends to open in the rough, I've always been told that the rough makes your club close, but I don't find this, anyone else found this as well.
