Proper Lie Angle
Did you know that the lie angle of the club could cause shots to go off line? A club that is too flat can cause the toe of the club dig into the ground causing the shot to go right. A club that is too upright will cause the heel of the club to dig into the ground causing the shot to go left. There are several ways to check this; however the best way is to have your clubs checked by a professional. Then, using a loft lie machine bend them to the proper lie angle. By bending them, we will get the center of the club to hit the ground, which will produce a square divot that is the same depth from heel to toe. Lie angle is measured in degrees in relationship to the ground. There is no right or wrong lie angle, only the one that fits your swing.
