Question

There are two shots with which I’m struggling to get my swing bottom 4 inches in front of the ball: the uphill and downhill shots into the green. Should I be adjusting ball position for each?

Excellent question, Brian. The key to mastering uneven lies is to make sure your address position matches the lie. I explain in this video:

  1. Thanks so much for another Great Tip!
    I started this game 2.5yrs ago @ 60
    So I’m trying to train at it like when I was a
    Professional cyclist🚴
    This is totally different didn’t realize
    How difficult the game is!!
    But with all the videos such as yours😎 it has made it Fun learning!
    Look forward to your Tips!
    Ps have been working on the forward bottom position my impact
    And compression of ball has really
    Improved my distance and consistency!!
    Thanks so much

  2. I also struggle getting the swing bottom to go 4 inches in front of the ball on just a regular lie. What should be my swing thoughts? I am a female player with a high handicap.

  3. Thank you for this video. May I ask how to keep the ball from pulling left when ball is above feet. The opposite would be how to keep ball from pushing right when ball is below feet. Our course has a few of sideways hills and usually an obstacle between these hills and the green.

  4. Part of the requestors question was regarding ball position.
    You said “same position”.
    But – in your demo it looked like for downhill the ball pos was maybe normal – just inside of fwd foot.
    But on the uphill it looked back of mid betw feet.
    Also in your demo the width between your feet seemed very wide on the downhill but more normal on the uphill.
    Seem like small points – but maybe necessary to get the proper hip / shoulder position.
    Pls explain.
