How do you hit a side hill lie?

Side Hill Lies

When hitting a shot where the ball is above your feet, remeber that it will automatically shape your ball flight to the left. The angle of the hill will close your clubface at impact, in turn, causing you to pull or in some cases hook your golf shot. With this type of shot, you will always want to choke down on the shaft of the club and aim five to ten feet right of the target. When you make a normal swing and good contact with the ball, your shot will resemble a slight draw. If the ball is below your feet, the shot will do the exact opposite. At impact, unless you are aiming five to ten feet left of the target, the ball will sail right on you, resembling a slight fade
