How much is the changed by adding 1/2" to an iron?

The lie angle is the angle between the clubhead and the shaft.  The length of the shaft doesn't have any bearing on this angle, so if you have a 64* lie on your 37" long 6-iron, when you lengthen that 6-iron to 38.5", it still has a 64* lie.

True. But adjacent irons typically vary 1/2" in length and 1* in lie angle.

So, in a way, you could say that extending a club by 1/2" and not adjusting the lie angle flatter, the club will effectively play 1* flatter.

Not much, at half a degree lie change, even with a wedge, your looking at less than half a yard miss left or right

Sorry - I should of course have said the longer club will play effectively more upright.

The effective lie angle gets one degree more upright for every half inch of added length, and one degree flatter for every half inch taken off.

Same thing happens when you grip down on a club. If you normally grip down one inch it's like having a club  two degrees flatter.

• You never know about other people and their issues until you step into their shoes.     It was very brave of him to share this.   This will help others that may be suffering from the same or similar issue.
• Absolutely not.   It's your feel, it has to be right for you.
• It is Full Swing.   It has other sports besides golf.   I was there today and watch some kids throw dodge balls at zombies.   First impression.   The distances aren't real accurate.   I've never hit a 4H 200 yards but today that was normal.   There were some shots that seemed right for distances but maybe they had the "boost" set up to help everyone's ego.   I believe I did see that option when we set up the game today.   Whatever, I enjoyed myself (played very well) during this cold nasty drizzle.
• Anxiety is what I experience on the first tee, but not like Bubba.  Bless his heart... I hope he is able to deal with it.
• Bubba Watson on dealing with anxiety: ‘I thought I was going to die’ On many sleepless nights, Bubba Watson thought he was going to die. Alone in the darkness with only his thoughts to keep him company as he dealt with crippling anxiety that kept him up at night, Wa… So… Yeah. Anxiety is a real thing.
