There are a number of techniques that will prevent the grass from interfering with the putterface during the stroke when your ball is on the fringe, resting against the collar of the first cut of rough. I prefer the "pop-putt" technique: Hit sharply down on the ball with the face of the putter, which causes the ball to pop a little way into the air before rolling toward the hole.
