How To Play The Ball Above Your Feet
How to play the ball above your feet – see our golfing master give the lowdown on playing those tricky side slope shots when the ball lies higher than your feet. This will help you hit the green not the ground in your gold game.
Place your club behind the ball, aiming 5-10 metres right of the target, and take your normal set-up, feet shoulder width apart and your weight on the balls of your feet.
Make sure your grip is low enough on the club to allow you to lean forwards without hitting too far behind the ball.
If your grip is too high, your body position will be too upright, leading to a flat swing that pulls the ball even more to the left.
