Posture/Lie Angle

Recommended Posts

I am quite tall for a golfer, roughly 6’ 2” and my clubs are .75” over standard length, standard lie. However, I notice when I’m in posture, the toe of my club is up off the ground and in order for it to lie flat, I have to stand almost perfectly upright. Is there a posture change that would help or just flatten the lie angle out? Or maybe it’s the shape of the head? I have Taylormade SIM Max OS.

The good news is when your swing is in motion the shaft bends down and your hands are probably above where they were at address. Thus creating to proper lie when you hit the ball. 

The only way to really tell if your lie angle is correct is to hit balls with some impact tape and off a lie board. Then you watch your ball flight. 
 

What your lie looks like at address is meaningless.

Walter: Tell me Bobby, why do you play this game?
Bobby: I play because I love it.
Walter: Well I play for the money. I have to win. That is why every time we face each other I will always beat you.

The only way to really tell if your lie angle is correct is to hit balls with some impact tape and off a lie board felt pen marker on the ball (vertical line) and check to see if the line is vertical on the clubface. Then you watch your ball flight.

There, I fixed that for you.

I wouldn't use that setup to make any determination about lie angles as the ball is higher than it normally would be.   Since the ball is higher, the toe will be higher giving you the impression that the lie angle is too upright.

I didn’t even realize that. I’ve hit on the mat a lot and never really realized it’s above my feet

I'd shorten the club first. Just because you're 6'2" doesn't mean you need longer clubs especially with long arms.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
