Severe Slope

Golf TipMay 19, 2015 Posted by Matt

If you have an approach shot to a green that has a severe slope that will move your ball left or right so much that it might go off the green, you need to go against the slope.  Try to aim your ball so that it hits into or runs up the slope, instead of landing in a way that will cause the ball to pick up speed with the hill.  Good players might draw or fade a ball into the slope, so the ball hits and stops before rolling down the hill gently.  Just getting your ball to land on the green may not be good enough for holes that have nasty slopes on them.
