How to Attack a Downhill Lie Golf Shot

In golf there’s no denying that a downhill lie can be tricky. As the ground slopes away from you, it’s easy to catch the ball thin and “top it.”

But the good news is that with a few small adjustments to your setup you can position yourself to make a great golf shot, even from a difficult downhill lie.

This week on the The Golf Podcast we dive into some of our favorite tips for making better contact from the dreaded downhill lie.
