When you play golf, you almost never have a completely flat lie on the golf course like you do at the practice range. It may be difficult to recreate those sidehill, downhill and uphill lies on the practice range, but you can do it at the gym or at home.
Simply taking practice swings with your stance at different levels can help prepare you for how it will feel on the golf course. Use a step or bench to simulate the uneven slope. This will not only help your swing technique but help you develop strength and balance as well.
Uphill and Downhill Lie Drill with Foot Lift
- Simulate an uphill lie by placing your front foot on a step or bench.
- Lean your weight slightly towards your back foot and hold a club or hand weight as if you were going to hit a shot.
- Swing to the top and stop to make sure that your weight is loaded into your back leg.
- Feel the weight on the inside of the back foot and keep the back knee slightly flexed.
- Lift your front foot to balance on your back leg, hold for a moment, then set foot down again.
- Return to start position.
- Rehearse your backswing for 8 to 10 repetitions.
- Repeat on the downhill lie.
