2 degree flat irons

7 posts in this topic

Ive used my callaway x14's since i was a noobie, they are 2 degrees flat because i was only 15 when i bought them

Now im somewhat 'normal' height, do i stick with what i know or go standard?

Ive got a choice of some flat Taylor Mades or standard ones. Or stick with the Callaways.

Go hit some standard lie irons and see if they are giving you the contact and ball flight that you are looking for. If you decide that you like a standard lie, save yourself some jing and have the X-14 adjusted. You are a 8.0....so Im thinking that you should easily know if the heel or toe is digging. I never likes putting tape on the sole of the club and swinging off of a board or a mat. I always took my clubs to the course or a turf driving range to see how they reacted while striking down through the ball and turf.

Actually, the toe should be raised at address slightly if the lie angle is correct, assuming your set up is proper.

you should head to a golf store and hit the brand you want on a lie board. Between manufacturers, "Standard lie" could be different. For my callaways, i was 1 degree flat, but on my mizunos, i'm standard.

Lie boards lie. Players will almost always tend to adjust grip and stance to the club so that it fits thier eye before swinging. The best way to check a lie is to go play or hit balls on a turf range.

    • I still question the worth of this rule.....I am retired, my playing partners are not, so I do play a lot of solo rounds.  But what does posting or not posting matter? I play with my friends, go home and post my score online, they are not looking over my shoulder, does it count? I play at my home course with one other player I only know casually, we both keep our own scorecards, really could care less what the other person scores, does it count? I play away at a course, I am paired up with 3 strangers, I play my round, never see them again, then post my score, does it count? Nobody's called me yet to say these scores do or don't count, or ask who witnessed them.  The concept behind the rule is supposedly to achieve more honest scores for handicaps, right?  I can see no way it has ANY affect, other than penalizing the solo golfer and questioning his integrity. I want to have an honest handicap that best reflects my abilities both good and bad, posting rounds I play with others would only be about 20% to 25% of my scores.  With greater than 75%  not being counted, it can only skew the results, not better reflect reality.

    • In the St. Louis area, private Bogey Hills CC opens itself to non-member preview days on a few Mondays each summer. You have to make a reservation, and the deal is: Before 2 PM: $49.50 + lunch. After 2 PM: $32.50 (no lunch) Bogey mainly promotes this through Walters Golf Management, which runs the club. The area's Big 4 clubs all have waiting lists, but some of the mid-level clubs have trimmed or eliminated initiation fees. Dynamic pricing now extends well beyond individual golf rounds. It seems private country clubs often have calculated an "ideal" number of members, so that the facilities are maximized without being crowded. The private country clubs often have tennis and swimming along with golf - and additional family activities - whereas the semi-private golf clubs normally just do golf.
    • I never believe handicaps. I thought at first that people lie to get more strokes, but it is just the opposite. When I see a 8 handicap, who( for example, drives the ball 220 from the regular tees), I highly question it.  I think, "could this guy break 90 from the championship tees at Oakland Hills?   The answer for anyone who claims to be a 8-15 is usually no. 
    • Its super frustrating!! Theres all these simulators and the whole try before you buy but I cant hit a ball in a simulator to save my life. It makes me nuts!!!! How is one supposed to demo clubs when they can't hit it in the sim!?
