What is "Lie Angle" and how does it affect ball flight?
- The lie angle of the golf club can have a significant impact on ball flight direction.
- Club length can have a significant effect on the lie of a golf club.
Clubs that are too short cause lie angles that are too flat (heel in the air), the toe of the club will impact the ground first and have a tendency to push the ball to the right.
Clubs that are to long cause lie angles that are too upright (toe in the air), the ball flight will tend to be to the left especially with the more lofted irons.
Although it is possible to hit the ball straight with improper lie clubs, it just means that the golfer has compensated for this by adjusting his swing, aim and/or posture to the clubs lie and as a result their consistency suffers.
