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!

Hi Paul, do you feel like your picking your club up on a downhill shot ?
December 16, 2015
Not at all. Here are some tips I did on these shots:

Hi Paul. On these shots, do you still aim the clubface towards the target?
No. You would be playing for the ball to fade from the lie.

Hi, Paul. by the way, why do we put the ball more on the right side?
April 23, 2017
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.

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.

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.

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

This is one of the shots I have the most problem with (and my home course is very uneven).
My confusion; you keep your front leg almost straight and bend the rear leg, surely this levels your shoulders rather than aligning them with the slope?
Would appreciate your comments on this.
By the way enjoying your instruction, been on your method for a few weeks, lots of range time, and starting to get positive results, thanks.

You do this to at least keep your balance. If you had both legs flexed you would fall down the slope. So the amount of flex would vary with the amount of slope. That slope I was on way pretty severe.
Glad you are doing well. Keep at it and it will pay off big time.
