Playing well in uneven ground

If playing golf is hitting the ball into the hole in flatten ground and with no obstacle then I don’t think the sport can get to this popularity. Not only you have to hit your balls into a far far away hole but you have to also avoid obstacles like sand, water, bush etc. But that is not the end of it, when you think about all the down and up hillsides then you may want to give up on the sport.

Imagine when you are hitting your ball and it goes right into the foot of a hill and you have to make your ball to climb the hillside and go up to the hole which is by chance at the top of the hill. You may think only magic can do this but after reading this article you will know how to do this without having to borrow the magic from a genie’s lantern. By using some simple tips and techniques with a lot of practise, you should have no difficulties in making your balls to climb up or down a hill and go right into the targeted hole you want.

Uphill

Going up the hill is a trick that no golf player want to get when they are heading with their game. It is like you are climbing the stairs to a pagoda. It depends on how slope the stairs are that you have to put much or just little of your strength. It is the same for when you hit a ball up the hill. If it is very steep you have to calculate with your eyes or using the supporting devices the distance and then use as much strength as you need to hit the ball so it can go up and precisely hit the hole but not to roll downward.

Downhill

For hitting the ball down a hill, it is opposite to when you hit it up the hill because now besides all other factors that may affect the hit, there is also one more natural factor which is the gravity. Because of the gravity, the ball seems to fly faster and stronger than it normally works. You have to pay careful attention on your hands and arms strength and make sure you do not make it too much of what it needs. The best way in hitting the ball down a hill is not to hit it too high in the sky. If you can hit it and make it fly close to the ground then this can increase the chance for you to hit the hole precisely than the other cases.

uneven ground

No matter where you are hitting your ball, down or up the hill sides, there is one important thing you have to always bear in mind. The secret is to keep the parallel balance between your two shoulders and the ground you are standing on. Remember that it is the balance between your shoulders and the ground where you are standing no matter if it is a hillside or not. Do not make the parallel balance between your two shoulders with the flatten ground as standard. By doing this, you will create an intangible flatten ground for yourself and your ball and this makes sure you hit the ball correctly.
