Ball Below the Feet
You are setting up to the ball and discovered that the ball is below your feet.
The key to accomplishing this shot is to allow your arms to swing faster to help compensate for the slow movement of your legs.
Move your hands towards the butt of the club to help compensate for this lie. Bend a little more at the knees than usual. Avoid tilting your body towards the ball by placing more weight on your heels. Swing along the slope with a faster arm speed through impact and continue to accelerate well into your follow through. Although this shot will feel a bit odd, it is important that you maintain your setup position throughout the swing.
