Got this game fairly recently and was wondering if it affects the shot when the ball is clearly above/below the golfer's feet, or when the ball is lying on an obvious upslope/downslope.

I haven't noticed it making much of a difference and have been pretty much ignoring sidehill lies thus far with good results.

The announcer even warned me of it once, and he was certainly right.

^ is correct... but the omission of uphill/downhill is bothersome.

Are there plans to update the physics system to incorporate up/downhill lies?

Yes, that is being looked at.  Don't have a time frame just yet though.

if john mentions it you can be sure it will affect the shot, if he doesn't, then well its pot luck i'm afraid...needs sorting out!

I agree,side hill lies affect the trajectory of the ball quite significantly whilst up/down lies just affect the distance.

Up/down has ZERO effect on the ball flight in TheGolfClub.

Something that needs to be addressed
