Revealing the lie
The key to accuracy is flawed?
We suspect that you all realise that the lie angle on your irons is of paramount importance to your ability to hit solid and accurate approach shots.
You may even have read the research that reveals that for every 1° your lie angle is too flat or upright, you’ll be 10 feet wide of the target with a perfectly hit #5 iron. So you’d appreciate why we’re alarmed by some research we did ourselves. The standard lie angle for different brands is different!
That’s right, the first three models we checked (all game improvement models) from three different brands, all had different standard lie angles! That means you might be standard with one model and 1° upright with another.
Every purchase needs a fitting
No one should buy golf equipment (any golf club) without a fitting. As this research shows, even for the most important component of an iron; the part that controls accuracy; it’s critical to get fitted for your swing AND the model being selected. Make it easier to hit better golf shots.
