It’s all very well practising from a perfect lie every time, however golf courses are not flat, so being able to play shots from a variety of lies will greatly improve your scores and confidence.

Samantha Head offers a few tips on how to play from uphill lies:

When the ball is above your feet you’re forced to swing flatter and around your body. This results in the shot flying left of target with a tendency to hook the ball.

Grip down the club to counteract the fact the ball is closer to your body. By doing this you will also need to take one more club. Try moving the ball back in your stance, as you’ll reach the ball sooner when it is above your feet.


This handy tool on the club shows which direction the ball will start to travel and this is exaggerated by the slope - ball above your feet, it will fly left and below your feet, it will fly right.
