A critical misconception in golf is how the ball reacts to landing on elevated shots. 15Know this: when hitting to a lower-elevation green, the ball will not roll out much, but when the green is high in elevation, the ball will most likely land and run. This is kind of backward thinking, but remember, when the ball approaches a lower-elevation green the ball travels on its full arc, generating more force and creating a larger crater at impact. An elevated landing area stops the ball from completing its full arc and stifles its descent, making the ball release and roll out when it lands.
