Learn a new shot

Today's Golfer (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Iron shots from down­hill lies needn’t fill you with dread.

By now, I’m sure you know that a slight down­ward at­tack is a key el­e­ment of a crisp iron strike. But achiev­ing that be­comes a lot harder when your ball holds up on a downs­lope. As your lead foot drops be­low your trail foot, your at­tack an­gle must be­come ac­cord­ingly steeper if you are to achieve that vi­tal, com­press­ing con­tact. It can be an awk­ward shot, es­pe­cially with a wedge in your hands and a green perched up above you. But fol­low this process and you will find your­self able to make clean, solid con­tact… and hit that green.
