Miscellaneous - Uneven Ground
When faced with an uphill or downhill
lie, it is common for amateur golfers to either hit
the ball fat or thin. The mishit is most often caused
by an error in the setup position.
Making sure that your shoulders are parallel
to the ground on which you are hitting from and
not parallel to the horizon is of the utmost
importance. By setting up in this position you are in
fact mimicking a flat surface with respect to the body
to ground relationship. This allow the lowest portion
of the swinging club to be achieved at the ball rather
than before or after, and thus reduce the chance of
hitting the ball fat or thin.
