Tips from The Tour - Hunter Mahan Balances a Sidehill Lie
Posted: April 16, 2014
Uneven lies are commonplace on the golf course and you’ll come across your fair share in any given round – even if you’re splitting the fairways. And having the right approach and technique for these shots is essential to finding more greens in regulation.
So we enlisted Pro V1x loyalist Hunter Mahan to share some advice on what to do when you're facing a sidehill lie with the ball several inches above your feet. As Hunter told us, the biggest key to hitting this shot is good balance.
"You don't want to fall off the slope; the slope is pushing you back towards your heels. You want to make sure you get to your finish and really get your weight on the balls of your feet or even the toes."
Watch the video above to see what else Hunter has to say and turn this shot into a green-light special.
