Club Length And Lie

10 posts in this topic

How much of a difference does club length and lie angle make, I've just had my first ever fitting session done and order some custom fits but I have to wait 7-10 days for the clubs to come. I am rather excited to see how much of a difference 0.5" and 2 degrees lie will make compared to playing with standard.

Does anyone have any experience going from standard to slightly longer and see much improvement on ball striking??

I went from standard to +1" and 4 degrees upright. I noticed a huge difference. My ball striking immediately got better, and my shots were noticeably straighter.

Nice, I am really interested in seeing the difference. I am also going from some heavy budget clubs to some decent Mizuno one's hoping I can feel a big difference.

I went -1 (instead of cutting shaft, I am gripping down by 1 inch) per my custom fitting result.   With a few practice sessions, I am hitting more accurately without loss of distance.

I also went two degrees flat on lie angle.   For wedges and short irons, I am not pulling my shot as much before the change.   For mid to longer irons, there is not much difference.

Remember lie angle depends a lot on your posture.

I used to need 1.5 degrees up, but my posture has recently changed, I bend my knees a little more than before (better control), and now I can play  clubs with standard lie angles.

If your posture changes as you improve your golf swing, you may need to change the lie angles on your clubs.

Yeah I guess its best to just get check ever year to make sure you are using correct setup

I finally got irons fitted for my height, 6'5", have only ever used standard clubs. Only just recently started to be interested in golf after about a ten year gap. I was never consistent in striking them. Went to the range with the new irons, had to get used to the new length +1" 3*up, but most all my shots were straight, or a little left to right motion... best decision ever.

I agree, I am 6'1" and my Mizuno's are +1/2 inch longer and 2* upright and I am much more in control of my shots.

However, I use a standard driver and 3W shaft length as I tend to hit "down" on the ball a bit with these clubs. I can't control the lighter/longer shafts that TM and others are marketing.

Yes.  I am 6'-2" or so, and went from standard length/lie to clubs that were +1.25" and 3* upright.  To be perfectly honest, to me the difference (specifically from the length and lie adjustments) is minimal.  I can still play just fine with my old clubs.
