I have always heard that too upright causes a draw/hook and too flat causes a fade/cut/slice.

From

Performance Center ->
Lie Angle: A lie angle that is too upright can result in shots that are pulled, or go to the left for right-handed people. A lie angle that is too flat may result in shots that are pushed, or go to the right for right-handed people. Having clubs that are at the proper lie can ensure that your shot pattern and shot shapes are as consistent as possible.

The guys above got it right. If a club is too upright the heel of the club will grab and cause the face to close and the ball to go left. Too flat of a lie makes for toe heavy turf contact and the face opens sending the ball right. The higher the loft of the club, the more exagerated the effect. Don't ask me why. I'm not sure, it just does.
