How To Play Shots from Hilly Lies: Part 1


One of the huge disparities between golfers on the course is how they play shots from hilly lies. In my new four-part video series, I aim to show everyone that these situations are really not as hard as many people make them out to be. These videos will clear up many misconceptions out there.

So many don’t know that you can draw the ball even when it’s below your feet and fade the ball even when it’s above your feet without issue; I use Flightscope to show you as well. So you can take dead aim at your target without concern of hitting off-line shots when set up properly. It’s really amazing how accurately you can perform when you are in balance and delivering into the flight you intended for the shot. When you are not in balance or set up improperly, you guarantee a short circuit that will prevent you from staying with your shot. That’s what will cause your off-center hits and and off-target shots.

In the first video in the series, I show you how to play a shot when the ball is below your feet. Many of you dislike this shot for now, but you will learn to love it very soon!
