Hitting From A Downhill Lie

The downhill lie is probably the most difficult sloping lie for amateur golfers.

Of all the shots from uneven lies, the downhill shot may be the most challenging because there’s a tendency to hit the ball thin or fat.

This stems from the fact that your feet and the ball are on different levels on the ground.

The club is also de-lofted and that will create a lower trajectory.
