Golf Tip – Uphill Pitch Shot

September 10, 2015 Posted by Matt

uphill pitch shotPlay the uphill pitch shot by matching the stroke to the slope.  Play the ball in the middle of your stance.  Set your shoulders and hips so that they tilt at the same amount as the slope that you are hitting from.  Hold this position throughout the shot so you do not dip or stand up.  Use a square stance and swing the club back low to the ground, and then sweep the ball off the grass at the angle of the slope up the hill.  Do not slam the club into the hill or try to take a divot.  The ball will fly higher than normal, so take a less-lofted club than you would normally use.
