Golf Putting on a hill is challenging even for seasoned pros. Uphill putts are pretty straight forward; all you have to do is put some “heat” on the ball and you will sink it. Downhill putts are a bit more difficult; holding back on the power is key here. However, a lateral putt across a hill is the trickiest putt that a golfer will ever have to deal with. The best advice when golf putting in this situation is to aim for above the cup. This allows gravity to be your ally as the golf ball begins to break.
