    I had seen the ball above and below your feet videos, but I don’t think I have ever seen the uphill and downhill videos; very helpful!
    Thanks Paul.

    Hi Paul, do you feel like your picking your club up on a downhill shot ?

    Hi Paul. On these shots, do you still aim the clubface towards the target?

    Hi, Paul. by the way, why do we put the ball more on the right side?

      If you played it forward you would fall over forward. You have the weight back on these shots so you need the ball back a little.

  5. Hi Paul,

    How wide open should the club face be?

      The face isn’t really open on this shot. It will push/fade because the ball is so far back in the arc. If you ball is not fading off of these lies then there may be a grip or other issue. Just give it a try and take note of where the ball is going. Let me know if you still have issues.

  6. Paul,
    Should you grip down on the club a bit to prevent from hitting too much behind the ball and making little or no contact with the ball. I would think the club would go into the ground if you used your normal grip. Perhaps the setup would cure that? Appreciate your comments.

    • George,

      You can if you feel you have to in that situation. I determine this once I am set up to it.
