By Roland Stafford

Photo showing the top of the swing The key to the back swing is to turn your center (front part of your torso) behind the ball without changing your head position and without losing your balance on the right leg.

Four Sidehill Lie Effects The four sidehill lies effect the flight of the ball the same way the ball would roll on the ground, so if you are on a sidehill lie above the ball if you were to roll a ball in that direction it would roll off to the right and that is what your ball flight will do
Playing From Rough And Trees Hitting from a bad lie in rough and trees offers the possibility of a tough saving shot or a safety play, your main goal should be to get out of trouble in one shot
Getting Out Of The Trees When near the green but stuck around trees look around in every direction and pick the shot that is going to give you the best shot of getting out in one stroke, the path directly to the pin is not always the best choice
