Specialty Shots » Up & Down Slopes

An uphill lie tends to be more favored over a downhill lie. With an uphill lie, you’ll need to select more club because the hill is adding loft.

Remember: More loft means less distance. So select the appropriate landing spot. In fact, the slope itself adds loft, so club selection is key!

ALIGN YOUR SHOULDERS PARALLEL TO THE HILL. This is key to avoid digging into the hill. Play the ball toward the upper middle of your stance.

SWING UP THE SLOPE with smooth acceleration through impact to a full finish. Swinging to a full finish will prevent deceleration.



Keep in mind: If the grass is thick or your ball is sitting down, select a more lofted club.
