Here’s how to successfully execute a pitch with an uphill lie!
I like uphill slopes because I can be more aggressive and go for the pin. The upslope creates loft, sending the ball high and landing it soft. So be aggressive with your landing spot, and select a spot closer to the hole to stick it!
Angle your shoulders parallel to the hill so that most of your weight is on the downhill leg. This is key to avoid digging into the hill. Play the ball toward the middle of your stance and take a slightly wider stance for stability.
Keep your hands moving up the slope. The tendency is to try and scoop the ball up. No need. You not only have the loft of the club, you also have the up slope of the hill. This ball should shoot up high and land soft, so be aggressive with your landing spot.
Swing up the slope with smooth acceleration through impact to a full finish.
