If the arrow is up, you're on an upslope and a neutral shot would be shorter. If arrow is down, you're on a downslope and you could hit it longer or skull it in real life, laugh. Left and right arrow determines whether you should aim the opposite way to compensate for the slope.

Thanks John..."Left and right arrow determines whether you should aim the opposite way to compensate for the slope... if the horiontal arrow is to the outter edge of the circle...does that mean you compensate MORE ..in adjusting your aim to left or right... couls you provide a diagram about what you mean

The vertical arrowhead ,if present, indicates that the ball is on a slope and the direction of the arrow tells you if it is an up-slope or down-slope.

The horizontal arrowhead, if present, indicates that the ball is on a sideways slope and the direction of the arrow tells you whether it slopes to the left or right.

Example 1 - On the tee There are no arrowheads as the tee is flat.

The blue and green sections of the lie indicator vary according to the severity of the slopes.

Example 2 - On the fairway. The arrows tell you that the ground slopes to the right and downhill. In this case, the slope to the right is quite severe.

Example 3 - In the rough. The arrows tell you that the ground slopes slightly to the left and severely downhill.

The arrowheads, when present, are always in the same place, either to the left, right, up, or down. The severity of the slope is indicated by the angle and relative size of the blue and green backgrounds.
