Today’s golf tips is about hilly lies. I must confess, this is one of my weakest areas as far as trying to decide what to do. I usually figure it out as I watch the flight of the golf ball and I decide I should not have done it that way.
Whether the lie is side hill, downhill or uphill, I just don’t know exactly what to do. I am pretty sure that if the ball is above your fee with a side hill lie that I will probably pull it to my left.

Next is a video from www.shawnclementgolf.com Shawn Clement, Director of the Richmond Hill Golf Learning Centre in Toronto, and Top 25 CPGA Teacher as rated by Score Golf Magazine, shows you how to perfect your shots on uphill, downhill and sidehill lies.
I like Shawn, he is very good about location, swing, exercise and more. He has over 260 videos on YouTube. This is part 2.
Of course what would a video lesson be without http://www.shawnclementgolf.com Shawn Clement, Director of the Richmond Hill Golf Learning Centre, one of the Canadian PGA Top Teachers and Most Popular Teacher-Instructor on You Tube shows you how using the slopes helps refine the golf swing and prevent the dreaded Over the Top and bad weightshift.
