Play Your Best
How To Beat Uneven Lies
The trick to hitting from any slope is making it play like a flat lie. To do that, focus on three areas. First, fit the bottom of the club to the slope so that all four edges—front, back, heel and toe—are touching the ground. Second, set up so it feels as if the club is the same length as on a normal shot—with the handle in line with your left thigh. Third, swing with the slope, not into it. Also, take a practice swing to see where the club hits the ground, then play the ball just behind that spot. Swing at 75 percent to make sure you hit it solid.
