Understanding Lie Angle

Understanding Lie Angle

Have you ever wondered why sometimes the ball veers off to the left or right despite making a seemingly perfect swing? Well, the lie angle might be the culprit! 

The lie angle refers to the angle between the club's sole and the shaft, affecting how the clubhead interacts with the ground at impact. A proper lie angle ensures that the clubface rests square to the ground, allowing for accurate shots.

An incorrect lie angle, on the other hand, can lead to inconsistent shots and hinder your progress on the course.

Here are a few tips to consider when it comes to lie angle adjustments:

1. Club Fitting: Getting a professional club fitting is highly recommended. An expert can assess your swing dynamics, body posture, and other factors to determine the ideal lie angle for your clubs. This personalized approach will undoubtedly enhance your performance.

2. Visual Clues: Pay attention to divots after hitting shots. If the divot tends to point to the left (for right-handed golfers), it may indicate that your club is too upright. Conversely, if the divot points to the right, your club might be too flat. These visual cues can give you insights into potential lie angle adjustments.

3. Use a Training Aid:  One tool we recommend is the True Shot Golf Magnetic Lie Angle Tool.  With its magnetic base, it securely attaches to your club, allowing you to measure and adjust the lie angle with absolute confidence

4. Work with a Pro: Consider consulting a golf professional who can evaluate your swing and help identify any potential issues related to lie angle. They can provide specific drills or exercises to help you make necessary adjustments.
