Pitching Off Slopes Around the Green: Uphill Sidehill Lie

One of the hardest things about golf is that we play on uneven surfaces thus no shot is ever the same.  In fact, the severity of the slope can have dramatic effects on the shots you hit and can cause you to miss the ball in directions you didnt think were possible.  In this video series I will show you the four different lies you will find when you play and how to adjust for them so you can find the ball closer to the pin next time around.

This lie shouldn’t intimidate you if you understand that the more loft you use the more the ball will move to the left.  So, if you must use loft then aim right and play the small hook, if you have room, I would suggest taking less loft and aiming down the line a touch more.
