Paula Creamer, the 2010 U.S Women's Open Champion, offers a lesson on how ot approach one of golf's most difficult shots, the downward lie. With the ball resting on a downhill slope and your right foot higher than your left (as a right handed player.) Make sure your shoulders are parallel with the lie and you stance is narrowed. With the ball a little further back of your stance, you follow through with your upper body. If you follow these simple tips, the downward lie will no longer phase you.
