This stance will rive you balance and prevent the tendency to tail backward toward the right foot a« you swing. Strive for that feeling of even balance by the above knee adjustment. And if opportunity offers for a few 'practice swings from thi* uneven stance, take them. With an uphill lie and the foot adjustments »s described there is a tendency to hook. If you find this is your tendency, It is best to aim a bit to the right of the intended line to compensate. Until you are accustomed to swinging -from a stance that has this bend In the left knee, vou'll do better if you're a bit conservative and take the back- swing more slowly than usual and start the club down slowly to be sure that you preserve balance.
