1 GO­ING THE DIS­TANCE

Today's Golfer (UK) - - PLAY BETTER -

Of course, up­slopes add dis­tance. And given the clas­sic am­a­teur er­ror is to come up short, get­ting the ball all the way to the pin is the big­gest task you face with this shot. The gen­eral rule here is to es­ti­mate how many yards you are be­low the green and add that to your yardage. But in se­lect­ing your club, re­mem­ber most up­hill shots have banks at the back that will re­turn your ball back to the green. This of­ten makes tak­ing two ex­tra clubs than nor­mal – say a 6-iron in­stead of an 8-iron – a good pol­icy.
