Golf Club Loft and Lie Adjustment
Make an appointment today to have your
loft and lies checked.
"Lie angle, the measurement between the hosel and the ground, strongly influences a shot's direction. The correct lie angle rewards the player with a straight shot from a square hit. If the lie angle is too upright, the heel will dig too deeply and the ball will start left of your target. If the lie angle is too flat, the toe will dig in, causing the ball to start right of your target.
"Although each club has a specific loft, it is affected by clubhead speed, swing path, and the angle of approach. As a rule of thumb, more loft is better than too little because extra loft creates additional backspin, which, in turn, reduces sidespin. (This is more important to woods than irons because you usually have a wider choice of wood lofts.) Too little loft may promote hanging back on the right side or a reverse weight shift in an effort to get the ball airborne."
