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.
