Iron Lie Angle?

He’d go slightly flat of where these are to get the line perfectly vertical. They’re a touch too upright now. Not sure why bending upright would even be considered here…unless I’m missing something. 

What I was told once, go a tad flat or leave them standard as I was hitting it ever so slightly towards the heel side.

Can you elaborate, as i know very little about this- In my head, the mark pointed toward the heel would be remedied by bending the lie more upright (bringing the toe up slightly), no?

Sorry, you’re right. My bad. The line is frankly so close to being vertical that it really probably is what you’re doing closing the face independent of the lie angle.

Guessing the mark canted toward the heel might mean a closed face?

 

No hard data to support the relationship - not aware of anyone looking into it at a high level of detail.  But I would think it would have to be a pretty severe face-to-path error to effect the mark.    For the most part, the mark comes from the compression of the ball against the face, not really any kind of 'rolling' up of the ball along the face so don't expect face-to-path to normally have much effect

Jumping back in on this as I was taking a look at the new ping i230s.   The 6 iron (black color code) has a lie angle of 61.3* where as my Mp54 6 iron has a lie of 61* (confirmed on loft/lie machine).

 

would it be safe to assume that going with the .3* more upright lie angle would be a good fit and there is no need to deviate +/- an entire degree of lie with a different color code?

I get flat to fight off the hook, but does it help correct a heel strike pattern?  I ask bc those are the exact misses i have (made worse by a s300 shaft that's too soft)...
