Video Golf Tip | Taking The Draw Out Of Ball Above Feet Lies
By Tim Cusick

I have a situation here where the ball is above my feet. This type of lie tends to produce a right to left curve on the golf ball. Depending on the severity of the slope will depend on the severity of the curve. Now sometimes I want that curve depending on what the situation is. If I do I am going to choke down on the club to accommodate for the slope, I am going to stand taller with my upper body and sit a little more with my lower body and I am going to let the club swing more in a circle to match the slope. This is going to curve the golf ball from right to left. if I want to take that curve out I am going to do two things. Number one I am going to put the ball back farther in my stance which is going to ensure that the clubface is open, or in the process of squaring up as I get to the golf ball. The second thing that I am going to do is make sure that I turn my lower body through more to hold the face open as well. So if you would like to hit straighter shots off of uneven lies with the ball above your feet, put the ball back in your stance, move your lower body through the shot, that will straighten out a shot off a ball above your feet.

How To Align Your Stance Straight Many slicers hit the ball to the right simply because they are lined up to the right, when they go to hit the ball their mind knows the target is to the left and then subconsciously changes the swing to outside in so that the club travels towards the target causing a slice
