I have a fitting booked in a couple of weeks but was always of the mindset that the "it's the Indian not the arrow". That said, I have significantly better striking with my wedges and driver than my irons. I also recently played my old Speedblades, and while I didn't get the feedback I like, my consistent misses of either toe hits or thinning shots wasn't really happening. Does anyone have a sense of what may be causing this, and if it might just be a club issue? Do I want to watch out for my lie angle, or perhaps something else?

 

Relatedly, if anyone has a clue as to what the cause of this common miss might be I'm all ears . . .

We would need to see video of your swing to say anything for sure, otherwise it is just speculation.

Again a quick video of your swing should show why its happening is it could be a number of different reasons.

Lie angle could be something too like your initially mentioned. I bent mine a little more upright and it did help with moving the strike location inward. I would still check your swing like others have suggested.
