Video Golf Tip | Elevation Changes Affect Aim

Here we are, the beautiful number seven at Pebble Beach. You know the architect’s job title is protector of par. What a great architect on this golf hole. Here is one of the things that happens. Because we play the game from the side of the golf ball, it is a side on game, when we take our address position we tend to look to the left on downhill shots. On uphill shots we tend to look to the right. Here is what happens when you play, you tend to miss those shots in those areas. Here is a technique that can help you overcome that. After you take your posture and address position to your target your last look is going to be in this case to the right of your target, then back to the ball, then make your swing. This is no unlike on the putting green when you have a breaking putt your last look should be at the high point of the break and not necessarily at the target. I know this technique will help you manage yourself on the golf course the next time you are confronted with an uphill or downhill shot. I know it will save you some shots. Give it a try.

Cure For Heel Shots: Posture Maintain a constant posture throughout the entire swing so that your body does not move towards the ball during the swing and cause the heel of the club to make contact with the ball
Putting Source of Power Choose one source of power and apply it throughout the entire swing
Lee Trevino's Consistent Swing Although an unconventional swing, emulating Lee Trevino's swing by focusing on his right side and the way he came down and straight through the shot, tracking the target line, is a great idea
