Often considered the most treacherous golf shot, the downhill lie is difficult to master. Stoneybrook head golf professional and general manager Todd Pyle has a quick tip on how to do better at them.
He also shows the way to attack shots from uphill lies.
“If you do not make the adjustment to your spine angle, so you’re swinging with the slope, now it becomes more turf and more (disruption) to the actual contact with the golf ball,” Pyle said. “So by simply making the adjustment at setup, that gives you the opportunity to then hit a solid shot versus hitting a shot where you get too much or too little grass caught between the clubface and the golf ball.”
