I recently started using a new set of irons and they are set at a stock lie angle. After a fitting I was told I should be at a 1.5 degree upright angle. I had been using a 2.5 degree flat lie prior. Well I have been changing my stance to accommodate an more upright one but it is uncomfortable and I am hitting a lot of fat shots, which I believe now maybe due to returning to my lower stance on the return swing.
I had been using the 2.5 flats for about 3-4 years and the stance I had was comfortable and plenty of distance however a flatter swing. I didn't notice any consistent misses and was a pretty solid ball striker last year. Is it worth messing with? I am a little frustrated with the way it is going and do not get enough practice in to help get adjusted to the angle. The upright stance feels awkward and somewhat unbalanced. I expected that it would and these changes take time. I used the lie board to hit the the clubs with and as long as I stay upright I am fine with the sole impact. I think I still dip to my original stance too often.
Fitters any opinions? Like I said I hit good distance with the 2.5 angle, seemed accurate but very high ball flight though. What would benefit me to go to this more upright stance? Lower trajectory?
