Not every lie on the golf course is perfectly flat and golfers need to know how to adjust to all kinds of situations to help encourage a confident swing.

As Titleist Staff Professional Michael Breed tells us in this latest edition of 18 Shots Presented by Titleist, it's important to adjust your alignment, stance and grip to compensate for an uneven lie.

In this tip, Michael focuses on how to approach a shot when faced with a lie above your feet. A few of his keys... grip down and aim right of the target to ensure solid contact and better control.

The FedEx Cup Playoffs head west this week to Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colorado for the BMW Championship. The classic William S. Flynn design stretches out to over 7,300 yards, but with the course at an elevation of 5,380 feet, players will have to focus more on control than distance. 

"There are certain courses that probably lend themselves to hitting it high and far. I'm not so sure this is one of them," said defending champion and Titleist Brand Ambassador Zach Johnson. 

"I love the way the golf course lays out, I like what it demands. It's fair, it's right out in front of you."

When asked about the setup in the Mile High City, Pro V1x loyalist Hunter Mahan echoed Zach's sentiments and stressed the importance of finding fairways.

"At this altitude it's really not a very long golf course. The rough is thick. The rough is pretty heavy on the fairways and off the greens...So, you have to be very careful where you leave your tee shots"

“I think that this is going to be one of those tournaments where there's going to be a lot of really good rounds and going into Sunday, even the back nine, you never know what could happen.”

With such an exacting test of golf this week, players will have to be on point with every shot if they hope to take home the trophy and put themselves in the drivers seat for the Tour Championship.
