Downhill Hybrid Shot
You have a downhill lie and need to hit a long distance onto an uphill green.
Use a hybrid because it is easier to hit on a downhill shot than a three iron. This will help you get the distance and loft necessary to land the ball on the elevated green.
Get in line with the slope and place a little more weight on your forward or downhill foot. Set the ball a little further back in your stance than normal. Take a couple of extra practice swings to get a better feel for swinging with the slope. Do not try to lift the ball up or you will fall back behind the ball or hit on top of it. As long as you swing with the slope, you will get the loft you need.
