Video Golf Tip | Uphill Lies for Juniors

If kids are going to play golf, just like anybody else it is no different, they need to know how to hit every shot in the book. This is why I like to get the kids out on the golf course. Because when they do that I can set up different scenarios for them and show them what to do. In this case here as you can see, I have a ball that is on a very severe upslope. So what I am going to ask this kid to do, or I am going to show you how to do this, the first thing you do whenever you have a severe slope, the first thing you do is line your shoulders with the slope. Most people want to do what, they want to keep their shoulders even and they end up sticking the club in the ground. We don’t want that to happen. The first thing I need to do is align my shoulders with the slope. That is going to put the ball a little bit towards the front of my stance. I can take a little bit less lofted club, why, because there is already loft on the club because of the slope, and now all I am going to do is swing up the slope with my swing. You can hear very solid contact and you can watch that ball go. But once again, the kids need to know how to hit all the shots and the best place for me to show it to them is actually out on the golf course.

Drawing The Ball Draws are straight shots that fall to the left, which are different from hooks that curves to the left
Hitting Your Driver Tension is the cause for most driver and long iron problems, players tense their muscles in the set up and sap all their ability to create power during the swing
Basic Chip Shot Use a firm wristed stroke, ball back in your stance, weight forward and minimum amount of air
