Pro Tip of the Week: Think Gravity when Approaching Uneven Lies

By Wayne | Videos: Pro Tip of the Week

Most golfers have a hard time remembering what adjustments to make when they are out on the course and the ball is sitting on a hill. There are uphill lies, downhill lies, side hill lies with the ball below your feet, and side hill lies with the ball above your feet. One way to make sure you think about the things that will help you hit these shots is to consider what gravity is doing to your ability to make a normal pivot (body motion).

Thanks, Wayne. This will come in handy in the springtime as I usually play a very hilly course. Is that last sentence right?

“The clubface will get to the ball slightly open so aim a bit to the right.”
