Playing those downhill lies

When you are facing a shot to be played off a downhill lie, there are one or two things you should remember.

When you are facing a shot to be played off a downhill lie, there are one or two things you should remember.

Use a more lofted club for one thing.

Also put most of your weight on your front foot, but aline the ball with your back foot.

Open your stance slightly, and follow the angle of the slope, both with your back swing and your down swing.

Finally, remember that hitting the ball in this way will tend to make it fade, so make sure you aim a little left of the target.
