James joined us out on the golf course and walked through a few keys that will help take the stress out of this situation.
Try James’ keys the next time you’re faced with an uphill bunker shot:
- Walk onto the green surface to pick out a landing spot
- Consider multiple clubs - for an uphill lie, use a lower lofted wedge
- Stand tall, align your spine 90° to the earth’s center
- Narrow stance, slightly open
- Swing the club and hands slightly left through impact to lower the shot trajectory
