Hi Paul. What club were you using? I would have used a wedge (2:1 ratio) because there is a steep gradient to the hole and the pin appears to be at the back of the green. The ball at the end of your shot is not clear. Regards, JOHN J.
That is a 56 degree SW. When coming out of long rough the ball might roll farther. In this case I might give it a little extra to make sure I get it out. This give me the extra roll.

Paul, I had this shot the other day. Severe uphill lie and a sand bunker between the ball and the green. I tried to play it as a regular pitch shot and ended up in the bunker. Took a double bogey. How do you suggest playing that shot?

This would be the tip that would help you with that shot. It can be frustrating, but just have to understand a few changes in setup and how to hit the shot. We posted this tip about 2 weeks ago;

What if it was a severe downhill pitch?

You would want to be using a more lofted wedge, lean with the slope and know that the shot will be coming off of the clubface very low and hot. A shot like that, you might want to be looking at landing it in the fringe short of the green to allow for the extra run that the ball will have. Check out this tip:

Due to it being uphill, we have to put some of our body weight on the back leg to adjust for the slope. What ends up happening for me is I end up hitting the ground and “drop-kicking” the shot (especially in thicker rough). Frustrating!
How do I prevent this?
Thanks for everything you do.

You can do 2 things: play the golf ball slightly back in your stance and use your hips/lower body more aggressive when hitting your shot. Try these 2 things out the next time you come across this shot.
