If you often find yourself in tricky positions such as this, Richard Bland of the European Tour has the top tips to help you regain control in this tight position and save you shots.

Struggling with putting pace? We’ve got just the solution.

The principles of playing a shot on a downslope (or indeed a downhill lie) are to ensure that your bodyweight is distributed with the slope.

A right-handed player will therefore have more weight distributed on their left leg (and for left-handed players their right leg).

Are you a slave to your golf setup?

Making sure that you have your club head moving to the contour of the slope will ensure that you are able to play almost perfectly of this difficult position.

By playing with the slope you will gain more control over the ball and it will allow you to get into those important green positions much more often.
