How to knock it closer when you face an uphill approach shot.
At every course you will face an approach where the green is raised above you. These shots rank as some of the most intimidating, partly because you can’t see the green and partly because you know upslopes sap distance. This is why the way to gain confidence and success with these shots is to have a clear picture of your target, and to use a stronger club than the yardage might suggest to help you get all the way back to the flag. Follow these five pointers and you’ll make the galling sight of the ball trickling back down towards you off the front of the green a thing of the past.
