Ball above stance
When a ball rests above your feet, you are forced to swing flater, more around your body, causing your ball to fly to the left of the target usually with a
right to left spin. When it is above your feet, the tendency is to pull or to hook the ball, and to stop this there are several modifications you can make.
All good swings depend on balance, so the first thing is to
neutralize the tendency to be pulled down the hill. Flex your knees into the hill and bring your weight forward toward the balls of your feet and leave it there as you swing.
Take one more club and choke down so that you can stand closer to the ball. Move the ball back in your stance because you will reach the
bottom of your swing arc sooner when the ball is above your feet. The shoulders and the clubface are aiming to the right of the target. Your
swing takes now an in-to-out path that stops the tendency for the ball to start left.
