The Perfect Chill By Georgene Mortimer, Island Winery
Our Southern Passion is sangria, so it is great on its own or as the base for your favorite sangria recipe.
Are you that guy or gal who likes to put ice cubes in your wine? Are you tired of your winesavvy friends rolling their eyes at you for adulterating a fine Chardonnay? What’s wrong with a cube or two in your Chablis, after all? Whether you’re the one committing this faux pas or you want to rehabilitate somebody who does, it’s time we all familiarize ourselves with the ground rules when it comes to giving your wine the perfect chill.
fruit juice and those ice cubes for a great treat. If you’re feeling particularly festive, add some fruit-flavored vodka or a liqueur alcohol to give it that extra kick. There is nothing wrong with the classic wine spritzer either. Just add equal parts wine, Sprite, or club soda over ice for an easy cocktail. This is a simple, do-it-yourself drink, if you’re at a party where wine is being served because most hosts will (or should) also have soft drinks available. A word of caution, though: If you’re going to a party where your host is serving a higherend wine, don’t insult his or her hospitality by using a rare vintage as a mixer.
The Perfect Temperature Every wine has an ideal temperature for serving. White wines should be served at about 45 degrees Fahrenheit and red wines should be served at a few degrees below room temperature.
Hot Weather Suggestions At Island Winery, our Harvest White sweet muscadine wine and our Riesling are delicious when served frosty cold.
Adding ice to wine, while quickly reducing the temperature, will dilute the wine and give it a watery flavor. Also, your hands are a balmy 98 degrees – about the temperature of a warm bath – and that’s why wine glasses have their distinct shape, so you can grasp the stem without heating up the wine in the glass.
Chardonnay, especially oak-aged ones such as ours, should always be served warmer, at the recommended temperature of 45 to even 50 degrees. Our Southern Passion is sangria, so it is great on its own or as the base for your favorite sangria recipe. For a really special twist, try adding our cranberry wine to any cocktail that calls for cranberry juice. It also makes a fabulous cranberry martini!
If you’re in a hurry to get your wine chilled, you can always buy it chilled from most liquor stores or just pop it in the freezer for a few minutes. Refreshment on a Hot Day Sometimes an icy beverage is the best way to go, especially if you’re by the pool or just trying to take the edge off a hot day. Do yourself a favor and mix up a Sangria! Get a bottle of fruit wine – or really any wine of your choice – add some Sprite, your favorite 18 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2011

Dining with Kids Pack some portable snacks, a few small toys and accept crayons, if offered.
Adults want a delicious, relaxing meal and kids just want to have fun. With hundreds of restaurants catering to every taste and budget, nearly all of the Island’s eateries offer children’s menus, as well as some form of family-friendly entertainment. Make vacation mealtimes memorable for the food and ambiance – rather than monumental meltdowns – with some helpful tips for dining with kids.
Plan Ahead A little planning goes a long way, if you have your heart set on dining at a specific restaurant. Decide where you want to eat long before it’s time to leave and call ahead to see if reservations are accepted. To avoid crowds and long lines, check to see if any special events are taking place in the area that evening. Remember, many restaurants offer similar lunch and dinner menus, so you can always enjoy a mouthwatering midday meal at a great price.
Arrive Early After spending hours on the beach, in the water or biking around the Island, it’s time for dinner. If you head out early – before everyone is REALLY tired and cranky – you’ll find Early Bird specials, Happy Hour deals and, often, live music or other family fun. Don’t worry, you can always move on to your next stop after having a bite to eat and a refreshing beverage. 28 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2011
Sit Outside Escape the frigid air-conditioning and white table cloths inside and settle down at an outside table for a relaxed evening of people watching, catching up with friends and family and, often, live entertainment. Many Island eateries offer the opportunity to dine al fresco overlooking spectacular waterfront vistas, unique Lowcountry landscapes and, if you’re really lucky, a playground. An added bonus of eating outdoors: You won’t have to worry about spills and birds are attracted to the fallen crumbs, so you’ll also have a free animal show.
Provide Distractions What might seem like a reasonable wait for an adult can be an unbearable eternity for a hungry child. Pack some portable snacks, a few small toys and accept crayons, if offered. If there is a wait, spend some time outside exploring the immediate area looking for lizards, alligators, birds, dolphins and other Lowcountry critters – unless there is an aquarium or lobster tank inside. Please keep in mind, small toys make excellent projectiles and crayons will melt if left in a hot car.
Order Take-Out When all else fails, it’s time to place an order to go. Call your favorite restaurant and enjoy a meal at a local park, the beach, a playground, in your hotel room or on the deck at your rental home or villa. Relax, you’re on vacation! hiltonhead.com

The Pursuit Of Happiness By Carey North, Palmetto Sands Realty
... let’s not forget one of the unalienable rights discussed in the Declaration of Independence: The pursuit of happiness!
As we celebrate Independence Day this month, let’s not forget one of the unalienable rights discussed in the Declaration of Independence: The pursuit of happiness! For many of you, that pursuit may include owning property on the Island one day. After all, the relaxing – yet active – atmosphere is certainly conducive to a happy lifestyle. Whether you are looking for a primary residence, second home or investment property, our market is primed for buyers to succeed! WHY HILTON HEAD ISLAND? Well, for one thing, just take a look around you. Our 12 miles of sandy beaches, moderate climate, abundant wildlife and in-keeping-withnature architecture truly make Hilton Head Island a special place. The active lifestyle here includes everything from walking on the beach, biking, water sports, fishing, boating, tennis and golf. In addition, as other areas just get more and more commercialized, Hilton Head Island will always retain some of its natural charm, due to regulations put in place years ago. MARKET UPDATE Year-to-date, our market is showing increased sales over the year prior, although sales prices and overall inventory have decreased slightly. As of this magazine going to print, we are seeing interest rates below 5%. There are also two new loan products that are proving popular for buyers. 36 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2011
Fannie Mae HOMEPATH properties allow for putting little money down, no mandatory appraisal, plus incentives, such as up to 3.5% buyer assistance. For properties requiring repairs, HOMEPATH has a renovation loan option, as well. The Palmetto Heroes Loan Program is targeted at law enforcement officers, teachers, firefighters, veterans, nurses and EMS personnel that reside in South Carolina. It offers low interest home loans to current first time buyers, as well as a down payment assistance program of up to $5,000. WHY NOW? Low prices combined with a drop in interest rates and a decreasing inventory means now is a perfect time to buy. If retirement to the Island is still a distant dream, second home ownership provides an opportunity to enjoy your home now, while renting it out during your absence to offset expenses. You can always find a reason to put off making a decision. But, if you have fallen in love with the Island as I have and want to create more lasting memories here, then don’t hesitate because there may never be a better time to buy. Contact Carey North at Palmetto Sands Realty to help you find the property which best matches your needs. (843) 384-6402 or careynorth.com. hiltonhead.com

Aries Things should be looking up for you in all areas as the month begins. Now would be a good time to make special requests and to present novel ideas to people who have turned a deaf ear to your projects in the past. In the romantic portion of your life, this may prove to be one of the most exciting and thrilling periods you have witnessed in some time. Taurus You may run up against some difficult problems as the month begins, but by using patience and a good deal of intestinal fortitude, you can achieve goals you had not even thought of in the past. Office routine may tend to get you down in the early part of the month, but the load should lighten in the near future. Give a child or elder a helping hand.
Gemini If you feel that someone has wronged you or been unfair in some romantic or business deal, do not suffer in silence, but air your grievances, as long as you do so personally and to the offending party. A party or other social gathering now could do much to raise your spirits. Be careful of possessions in a crowded place. You may expect an important letter. Cancer Do not let the poor attitudes of others cause you to become involved in office intrigue or other forms of backbiting. Make sure you give sufficient effort for your pay and do not give those in authority reason to doubt your loyalty. Your love life could become richer if you would display more kindness in dealing with subordinates. Avoid unnecessary socializing. Leo Efforts on your part to aid your
Libra A new love could enter your life in a rather novel manner and your own reaction could surprise you. A good chance at promotion or pay increase could be spoiled, if you let your normal bent for sarcasm come to the fore. Increase your abilities and your pay potential by taking a night course or some other form of formal education. Avoid travel by water, if possible.
Scorpio The green-eyed monster, normally one of your biggest foes, could prove to be right for a change. It will be up to you to do some self-examination to find out why a heart may be straying. Whatever you do, avoid unbridled confrontations and making accusations. This will only drive you into a corner. Patience and forgiveness will work much better than harsh words. Sagittarius Someone very close to you could be planning a big surprise for you that could prove shocking. The final result will not prove unpleasant, however, so spend your time planning ways in which you can repay your benefactor. Office gossip can be squelched by actions much more than by words. Health problems should be seen to promptly.
Capricorn You could be hard pressed at this point to give up ideals for immediate gains, but the best advice to follow would be that of the straight and narrow. A possible promotion in your career area could be forthcoming, but it might require more effort than you are willing to put forth. Make sure that a letter to a superior is worded so as not to cause unpleasantness.
Aquarius A social occasion could be
community or to participate in charitable work could backfire, if it seems to others that you are only doing it for the glory. You would be better off to drop out altogether if this is your reason for action. Concentrate on career or work plans and make sure you complete any previously postponed projects. Romance could blossom, if you will let it.
a good time to bring up an important business matter, but don’t make it seem too obvious. Romantic attachment to an old flame could cause problems with a present mate or love interest. Remember that there was something which made the flame an old one and don’t be too anxious to renew a situation which could prove dangerous.
Virgo Your love life could take an unex-
Pisces Your powers of persuasion and
pected turn, as a former friend becomes more than that in an unusual situation. Don’t dismiss such ideas out of hand. You might find that you like it. Career improvement is a definite possibility, if you don’t overdo it with unrealistic pay demands. Investment in a home or other major purchase would be wise, if caution is used. 62 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2011
your ability to make others see pie in the sky could backfire on you if you use them for unwholesome ends. The best advice here is to honor past commitments and don’t try to talk your way out of a tight situation. Health problems may not be as bad as imagined, but should not be ignored. Gain the confidence of one higher up. hiltonhead.com

ISLAND BEACHES PUBLIC BEACH ACCESS: All of the beach is public, from the ocean to the high water mark. Access to the beach, however, is often private. The Town of Hilton Head Island provides nine beach accesses: Alder Lane Beach Access, off South Forest Beach Drive; Coligny Beach Park, off Coligny Circle; Driessen Beach Park, at the end of Bradley Beach Road; Chaplin Community Park, off Wm. Hilton Pkwy.; Fish Haul Park & Mitchelville Beach Park, at the end of Beach City Road; Burkes Beach Access, at the end of Burkes Beach Road; Folly Field Beach Park and Islanders Beach Park, both off Folly Field Road.
PARKING & FACILITIES: There are 23 metered spaces at Alder Lane; 54 metered spaces at Folly Field and 13 metered spaces at Burkes Beach Road. The parking fee is a QUARTER for each 15 minutes.
Additionally, there are 207 spaces at Driessen Beach Park for long-term parking. The fee is a QUARTER for each 30 minutes during the week. Parking spaces at Islanders Beach Park are ALWAYS reserved for annual beach passes. Parking at Driessen Beach Park for annual beach passes is reserved from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Parking is FREE at Fish Haul Park, Mitchelville Beach Park and Coligny Beach Park. Handicap parking is available at no fee at all beach parks. Restrooms, changing areas, sand showers and vending machines are available at the beach parks.
DESIGNATED SWIMMING AREAS: Official swimming areas have been designated for the Alder Lane, Coligny, Driessen, Folly Field and Islanders Beach
Parks. The boundaries will be clearly marked on the beach and in the water. During the beach season, lifeguards are stationed in each of the designated swimming areas for assistance and beach information. Please ask a lifeguard before entering the water if the yellow caution flag is flying.
BEACH MARKER SIGNS: Hilton Head’s beaches are marked with signs to let emergency responders know where anyone who needs help is on the beach. They are also useful to help you find your place if you are lost on the beach. It is helpful for everyone in your group to know the marker where you are staying, so that you can return on your own or tell beach patrol personnel, so they can get you back to the right place. The markers sit near the dune line.
WATER SAFETY TIPS: – Don’t enter the water if you can’t swim. – Swim near a lifeguard. United States Lifessaving Association statistics show that substantially more drownings occur in areas where there are no lifeguards. – Ask the lifeguard about any dangers in the water or on the beach, especially if he or she is flying a yellow caution flag. – Be aware of direction and strength of longshore currents. 70 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2011
These currents can take you up and down the beach quickly and cause you or your kids to get lost. – Don’t let your kids swim unsupervised, even in guarded areas. – Don’t swim alone. Use the buddy system so that someone always knows where you are so they can get help if needed. – Don’t overestimate your swimming ability. Stay in chest deep or less water to insure you don’t
get stuck in water over your head. Don’t rely on flotation devices. Swim parallel to shore if you want to swim long distances. Don’t swim against the current. Swim across the current to escape the pull. Always swim sober. Don’t dive into unknown water or shallow breaking waves. Always go feet first. This will help you avoid spinal injuries. hiltonhead.com
BEACH SAFETY TIPS: – Apply plenty of sunscreen and reapply it throughout the day. Remember trouble spots, such as the ears, feet, and nose. Even cloudy days allow the sun’s harmful rays to cause sunburn. – Wear sunglasses. The sun’s rays can cause serious eye damage. – Drink plenty of water. The hot summer days can dehydrate you very quickly. – Be aware of the rules and regulations of the beach. Signs are posted near most beach accesses.
– Don’t leave your kids unsupervised, even in guarded areas. They may wander and become lost. – Find the nearest lifeguard if you or someone in your group becomes lost. – Report any hazardous beach conditions to the nearest lifeguard. – Know the name of the beach or hotel/condo and the beach marker number where you are staying, so the lifeguard can better assist if you are lost.
– There are often jellyfish and stingrays, as well as other sea life in the water, which may sting or cut a person. Other problems may occur on the beach or in the water which may require first aid. In any situation where first aid is needed, find a lifeguard or seek further medical attention. – Report any hazardous water conditions to the nearest lifeguard. – Call or wave for help if you are in trouble.
BEACH PROHIBITIONS: The following are prohibited on all beaches: – Possession or consumption of alcohol – Glass (bottles, containers, etc.) – Littering – Indecent exposure or nudity – Disorderly conduct – Disturbing the peace – Unauthorized vehicles – Fires and fireworks – Shark fishing
– Horse riding or driving – Removal, harming, or harassment of any live beach fauna (sea turtles, sand dollars, etc.) – Removal, alteration, or damage to dunes, sea oats, or other dune flora – Operation, launching, or landing of unauthorized motorized watercraft – Unauthorized commercial activity

RECREATIONAL PATHWAYS GUIDE The Town of Hilton Head Island provides over 50 miles of public pathways and nature trails for the enjoyment of pedestrians and cyclists. At low tide, the Island’s 12 miles of beaches are ideal for biking. Public beaches are indicated on the Island Events’ Island Map. Our map also shows the existing public pathways. Many kiosks are located along the pathways with an Island-wide map on one side, and a localized map of the area on the other.
RULES FOR THE ROAD Please obey all traffic signals and pathway markings. Stop signs must be obeyed for safety. Bicycles are vehicles and must obey SC traffic laws. Travel the pathways at speeds that allow for the safety of pedestrians and other users. Never ride within the roadway against traffic. State law requires bicycles to drive like all other vehicles. Please do not ride on roads where a pathway is available. Please ride single file and keep a safe distance from other bicyclists. WATCH OUT FOR MOTORISTS! Motorists must yield to pedestrians and bicyclists within marked crossings, but they may not see you. Please yield to pedestrians. When resting or stopped, please move off the pathway. Most sections of the pathways are not illuminated. If you must bike at night, please wear light-colored clothing or carry a flashlight. Bicycles must have a red rear reflector and a headlight when biking at night. When approaching slower pathway users from behind, please sound your warning device, or call out, “Passing on your left.” Always pass on the left. Bicyclists should always wear a helmet, especially children 12 and under. Make eye contact and use hand signals. Assume other bicyclists and motorists don’t see you. Hand signals tell motorists and other path users what you intend to do and will ensure everyone’s safe enjoyment of the pathways. Be courteous, alert and predictable. 86 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2011

In the summer, dozens of female loggerhead sea turtles drag themselves onto local beaches, crawl above the high tide line and dig a nest. After laying more than a 100 eggs, these 300-pound reptiles make their way slowly back to the ocean. Following a 60-day incubation period, the hatchlings wait for nightfall and then race towards the water, using the moon and stars as a guide. Extremely sensitive to light and movement, the females will turn hiltonhead.com
around without nesting if disturbed while on the beach. On the other hand, baby turtles are attracted to light and will head towards the source rather than the ocean. To protect this threatened species, both Hilton Head Island and Beaufort County have “Lights Out For Turtles” ordinances. From May 1 through October 31, no light stronger than 60 watts may be visible on the beach from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. It is a federal offense to harass sea turtles or disturb their nests. For more information on Hilton Head Island’s Sea Turtle Protection Project, contact the Coastal Discovery Museum at (843) 689-6767 or visit coastaldiscovery.org. JULY 2011 ISLAND EVENTS 109

A saltmarsh is said to produce nearly 10 times the bio-mass (read: Food) of the most fertile agricultural soils. It is for this reason that the diversity of animal life in the saltmarsh is so great. At any given time – high tide or low tide, dusk or dawn, mid-tide or midday – you can observe Lowcountry wildlife searching for food. Perhaps the most spectacular display of feeding is provided by the dolphin. Atlantic bottlenose dolphin are always in search of food. Measuring around 9 feet in length, and weighing 300 to 400 pounds, it is said that one mature dolphin consumes about 50 pounds of fish a day. It’s hard to imagine 50 pounds of fish. Think in terms of quarter-pound hamburgers… about 200 of them! Most often, dolphin feed communally. Several distinctive feeding behaviors can be observed in our area. One method is referred to as tail slapping. Done to group and stun the quarry, dolphin will slap their tails on the surface of the water and complete the maneuver with a sweeping flourish to direct the now stunned fish in the direction of eager mouths. Another method is referred to as circle or bubble feeding. A pod of dolphin will swim in a circular formation several feet below the surface of the water while blowing air from their blow-holes. Capturing the bait fish within the circle, individual dolphin will swim through the bait with open mouths. Unique to our area – actually a 100-mile stretch of Atlantic coastline from Charleston to Jacksonville – is the behavior called strand 112 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2011
feeding. It is only here, in the Lowcountry, where dolphin strand feed. No other place in the world! A behavior passed from generation to generation of resident dolphin (the ones that stay here year-round), the pod will isolate a school of fish between their bodies and the muddy or sandy shoreline. With a glorious burst of energy, the dolphin force the fish, then their own bodies up onto the shore… water splashing… fish flailing… opportunist herons and gulls flocking in… then, while laying on their right sides, the dolphin enjoy their buffet. Shortly thereafter, the stranded dolphin will shimmy, tail first, back into the creek. Or, they will squirm around on the mud and return to the water head-first. Sometimes they strand numerous times before moving on. I have seen a group strand eight times in a row. Federally protected, it is unlawful to feed or attract dolphin to your boat or kayak. Respectfully observe these wonderful animals from a safe distance. Allow them to remain wild by not interacting with them. Their natural antics will charm and amaze you. Get Outside!

Bioluminescent Dinoflagellates By Master Naturalist Kathleen McMenamin, H2O Sports
Photosynthesis is also a key part in the illumination process of the Dinoflagellate...
Have you seen the ocean glow at night? Have you possibly been on a boat and seen the wake glow as you pass through? These little creatures that light up the night are improperly identified as Phosphorescents, but they are really Bioluminescent Dinoflagellates, a type of marine plankton. Plankton are free-floating ocean drifters, which can be plants, animals or bacteria. The Dinoflagellates use sunlight in the same way that land plants photosynthesize, in order to produce food for themselves. Photosynthesis is also a key part in the illumination process of the Dinoflagellate and the term “bioluminescence” means the creation of light by a living organism. As the waters in our South Carolina summer become warmer, these Dinoflagellates reproduce and increase in number. This plankton is a very valuable food source for oceanic filter feeders and even other types of plankton. Small fish, aquatic larvae and small crustaceans need these Dinoflagellates to survive. Through the food chain, they are important in nourishing all of the fish, shellfish and mammals in our oceans. Not only are Dinoflagellates important for our food chain and pretty to look at, they also play a very important role in creating oxygen for our Earth. Since they are plants that photosynthesize, they take water and carbon dioxide to create food for themselves. As a byproduct of their food creation, they release oxygen into the air and into the water. The Bioluminescent Dinoflagellates use their glow as a form of protection. They can feel vibrations in the water as predators come near them. As a response, they light up in order to attract larger secondary predators towards the primary creature coming 114 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2011
to eat them. The illumination can draw attention to larger predators from a great distance in the water, thus scaring the primary predator away from the Dinoflagellates. Although we as humans are not predators to the Dinoflagellates, we disturb the water around them, which makes them illuminate. Another common place to see the Dinoflagellates is in the crashing waves at night. As the little plankton are washed ashore, they are definitely being disturbed, which creates the glowing surf. Their glow is strongest after several hours of darkness. As the sun is setting, you will still be able to see them but they will not be as bright. As the night wears into the early morning, their glow also becomes more dim. They are able to recharge once the sun rises and the new day begins. The light emitted by a Dinoflagellate can last for 0.1 to 0.5 seconds. There are many different types of bioluminescent creatures in the ocean. Some examples on our Atlantic coast are bioluminescent comb jellyfish, angler fish and certain types of shrimp. The light emitted by these creatures is created by a chemical reaction. This reaction is energy being released by the organism. Every living cell creates some form of bioluminescence, however, most of these illuminations cannot be seen by the naked eye. Ever hear of a person’s aura? These illuminations can be in many different colors; sea creatures’ bioluminescence is generally within the spectrum of greens, blues and reds. Focusing on the wildlife and habitats of the South Carolina Lowcountry, the H2O Nature Center features live reptile and amphibian exhibits, hands-on displays and more. Apparel, gifts, books and bicycle/fishing gear rentals are also available.

Fishing Heats Up Courtesy of Blue Water Tackleshop
The mighty Tarpon will make his appearance in July...
July is often referred to as the “dog days of summer,” but a better name might be “fish days of summer.” Hot weather is the rule throughout the South and Hilton Head Island is no exception. But with heat comes warmer water and the fishing heats up, as well. The inshore waters close to Hilton Head Island are especially abundant with Redfish, Jack Crevalle, large and small sharks and more. The mighty Tarpon will make his appearance in July, arriving when the water temperature is in the eighties. The nearshore rips, reefs and live bottoms are teaming with Spanish and King Mackerel and Bluefish. Offshore, it's a great time to find dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Sailfish, Wahoo and perhaps a Marlin. Elaborate fishing rigs are not required to catch many of the fish in our area. Trolling 116 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2011
spoons on a lead or planer is one the most productive methods to make the catch. The mornings are usually calm with a cooling “sea breeze” kicking up in the afternoons. And when the fishing is this hot, who minds a little extra heat? The experts at Blue Water Tackleshop in South Beach Marina have a full charter fleet with experienced captains who know where the fish are. South Beach Marina is the closest marina to the ocean, which means more fishing & less traveling! (843) 671-3060 or bluewaterhhi.com. hiltonhead.com

Downhill Lies By I.J. Schecter with Doug Weaver
Stand at one end of a swimming pool with the balls of your feet past the edge...
Photography by Rob Tipton/Boomkin Productions
Hitting a golf ball straight is difficult enough from a flat lie. When you and the ball are suddenly on different levels, it becomes even harder. Facing an uphill lie, downhill lie or sidehill lie is daunting, but like many situations in golf, it can be handled well with an appraisal of the physical situation and proper compensation for it. When golfers are faced with a downhill lie, they find the ball below the plane of their feet. Because the toe of your club is going to be lower than the heel, the sidespin you impart to the ball will push it in the opposite direction, causing a fade instead of a hook. Therefore, you must align yourself not right of the target, but left of it. On a downhill lie, your weight falls forward toward your toes. Keeping this in mind, take your practice swings with the goal of centering your balance again through your thighs and over the arches of your feet. A good way to remember this is to focus your weight under your shoestrings. Just as when facing an uphill lie, take some extra club in this situation. In fact, on a downhill lie it is even more important to compensate for likely lost distance, since reaching down for the ball when swinging is more difficult than reaching up toward it. When the ball is above your feet, your swing plane naturally becomes flatter, making your golf stroke more like a baseball swing, which 118 ISLAND EVENTS JULY 2011
is why most golfers fare better with uphill lies than downhill lies. Downhill lies result in more shanks and pop-ups than uphill lies because your body instinctively wants to straighten up, and the more it does so, the more lower-body strength is inadvertently removed from the swing. No matter what the situation, it is always more effective to take more club and swing within yourself than to take less club and increase the chances of swinging out of control. To help develop the right feel for a downhill-lie swing, try the following drill: Stand at one end of a swimming pool with the balls of your feet past the edge. Swing your 5iron and try to skim the water. With your weight correctly distributed, you’ll be able to swing from this position without consequence. If you lean too far forward, however, you’ll learn your lesson in a hurry.
