Should I use lie angle tape when swinging my golf clubs?
Hitting the ground with the toe of the sole means you’re hitting with an open face, leading to a fade or a slice, meaning the ball will sail well right of the intended target. When you’re trying out equipment, then, it’s good to use lie angle tape to figure out how you’re swinging with a particular club.
What is a good lie angle on a golf club?
Lie angles almost always range from the mid-50 degrees (in drivers) to the mid-60 degrees (in short irons). In irons, the range is typically from 59 or 60 degrees to around 64 degrees. (Lie angles on putters reach into the 70s.) Lie angle is an important factor in clubfitting (making sure one’s golf clubs properly fit one’s body and swing).
Is your golf club off by a degree?
Golf is a game of angles. A golf club that is off by a couple of degrees for your swing type may not sound like that big of a deal. However, that small difference in degrees can be the difference between a well-struck iron shot and a slice or hook.
