    Hi Paul,
    My club has a lot of undulations so this downhill lie tip is timely. Can you clarify that we hit this shot like a fade, ie, with the ball back in the stance, the club face is square to target line but we align body left and swing left. Or do we just fully aligned left for both clubface and body? Tx. DT

      If you align left you swing left. If you get on a severe slope I would probably aim the face a little left too just in case. I’d hate to blow it way right. At least if you aim too much left and it is fading back on target you are getting closer to the pin not farther way.
