The shot Tong Chai played here ended up back in the water.

When playing this shot make sure you:

  • Set up, taking a much wider stance to anchor yourself into the hill. Tilt your shoulders so they are aligned with the slope and keep the club face open as you would do normally.
  • Keep your legs very still – there should be little or no leg movement for the duration of the swing.
  • As you strike through the ball, allow the club to ‘chase’ up the slope – we want to avoid the club digging into the bank and allow the club’s travelling up the slope to give the golf ball its height.
  • You’ll need to hit the shot with more power to land the ball close to the flag – the height on this shot means you’ll get very little roll.
