clubhead lie that is....
Quick background - 51 yrs old, played since I was 13, always could hit the ball pretty well, HC always within a 3-putt of 10, either side. Last few years been struggling to stay consistent, switching clubs - basically thrashing. Decided to get properly fit and advised on new irons, and I live in austin, TX, so there's a big Golfsmith nearby. Hit a bunch of irons over the last few days, on the monitor and outside, and to my suprise, most successful have been the Rocketbladez and Rocketballz - nothing between them. Today, while whacking more balls on the monitor, the assistant pulled out a lie board and had me take a few cuts. Since my misses were generally pushes about 10yd right, or draw/hooks 10-20yds left, and my good shots were draws to the line, he thought I was probably hitting heel first, and needed flatter clubs. I've always suspected that, as the toe of my club is off the ground at address. Not the case at all - I was hitting toe first consistently, with all the balls toward the toe of the club - the marks said I need 2degrees upright. He pulled a 2degree upright club, I hit on the board again, bingo - hitting the center of the clubface, sole marks right in the middle also.
Question is, what about too-flat clubs would suggest I'd have relatively frequent misses left, and a general l to r ball flight?
Now I'm also considering just having my current clubs bent rather than getting a whole new set. The Rocketballz/bladez were very impressive btw - whatever my previous thoughts were on the name or GI clubs in general. Up around 185yds+ with a 7i, great solid feel, and for me pretty accurate. This was with the stock graphite S. I also tried Amp Cell, X-Hot, JPX825, Cleveland 588TT and MT, Altitide, and some others. My days of vanity forged are most likely over!
