Most players try to avoid the thick rough, not Harris English.
The deep pot bunkers at the British Open can sometimes make in impossible to advance the ball forward. Harris English found out the hard way when his ball landed close enough to the bunker wall that his only option was to chip out into the thick fescue rough.
You know things are going bad when that is your best option. English went on to triple bogey the hole.
