We always practice shots on a flat stance, so when we’re faced with an unusual lie, don’t fight the terrain to counteract it; embrace the difference.

When the ball is above your feet, choke down on the club slightly so that your club matches the ground, put the ball further back in your stance than you typically would to keep the clubface a little bit more open than normal, which will help you to start the shot on the intended line and not overhook it.
