Golf Tip – Uphill Lie

Hitting a shot from an uphill lie can be tricky.  You have to worry about staying on balance and hitting the ball straight.  To hit a ball from an uphill lie, match your shoulders to the slope of the hill and open your stance.  Play the ball in the middle of your stance.  The open stance will leave plenty of room for your hips to clear and remain level throughout the swing.  To maintain control, take a three-quarter swing and sweep the ball off the lie.  The ball will move a little left so aim slightly right of your target.
