In this episode of Swing Clinic, Director of Instruction at StoneWater Golf Club, Bob Bourne, shows golfer Elise Lobb how to adjust her swing based on two different slope lies.
First Step: Understand Where the Bottom of Your Swing Is
Start by squaring yourself off and make sure the ball is in the center of your stance. Take a practice swing to figure out where the bottom of your swing is on a particular lie. Then you can adjust your stance accordingly for the actual shot.
