The Downhill Lie
By this term we do not mean the presence of any ‘Sidehill Lie’ condition. The ball is not above or below your feet!
Our ‘Set-Up is really important. A key element is to ‘Match Our Shoulder Axis to the Ground Slope’. This enable our ‘Clubhead Path and Shaft Plane’ to be compatible and functional.
Remember that this ‘Downhill Lie’ tends to launch the ball on a ‘Flatter Trajectory’. It will not get very high. You might thus select a slightly more lofted club. You might also alter your ‘Ball Location’ to accommodate your needs. A little more forward will deliver slightly more ‘Loft At Separation’.
