Category: Difficult Lie
Getting a draw, hook, or duffing the ball when it is lying above your feet because this makes the ball actually closer to your club than it would be if you were on a flat surface. The heel of the club touches the ground first and closes the face of the club.
The tall grass is wrapped around your ball or is sitting in the rough.
You need to pick the ball up cleanly off of the surface of the hardpan.
Standing up as you swing because your sense of balance tries to keep you from falling down the slope or swinging too flat and hitting the ground before you make contact with the ball.
Unable to determine how to play your ball when in the fringe.
Difficulty deciding how to play based on the specific conditions of each shot.
Doglegs forcing you to play safety shots.
Trees, bushes, or other obstacles that can prevent you from addressing the ball. This is great if you would rather get the ball out and a little further away than you would if you had to take an unplayable lie.
You need to bounce the ball to the green when a bushes or trees are obstructing the lob shot or if a bump and run would leave the ball in the long rough. The Texas Turn Down can land the ball short of the green with enough over spin to bounce forward and run close to the pin.
You are worried about getting a strong downhill roll.
