Most amateurs spend a big chunk of their practice time on dead-flat practice-range tees. They seldom practice from long greenside rough sand bunkers side-slopes or uphill and downhill lies. And I understand that. Why practice from difficult lies when you can’t even hit good shots from good lies?
To begin grip down very slightly on a low-loft club (in the photo I’m using a 6-iron). This effectively raises the bottom of your swing arc. Center the ball in your stance with your hands just in front of it at address.
Let’s say you have 10 minutes to warm up before teeing off. How do you spend your time? Most players would sprint to the range to hit a few rushed drives. But I’ve found that the best way to quickly sharpen your focus for 18 holes is to head to the putting green for one of my favorite games: Drawback.
