Quick Answer: Does Upright Lie Promote A Draw?

The upright lie also promotes a left tilting spin axis, which leads to what’s generally described as draw spin.

An upright lie angle basically gives you a head start, but depending on the severity of the slice conditions the golfer generates, it certainly won’t guarantee a draw.

Are my golf clubs too upright?

If your club is too upright at impact, then your shots will travel to the left of your target. Conversely, if your club is too flat, then your shots will be heading right. For every degree that your lie angle is either too upright or flat, the ball will initially travel 4 yards off your intended target line.

Does higher loft promote a draw?

Yes, loft affects bias somewhat. If you loft up you will increase the draw. If you loft down you will decrease the draw. In other words if I set my 10.5 driver to +1 or 11.5 then I slightly close the face and increase draw bias.

What does an upright lie do to ball flight?

It also means that you are likely not swinging very efficiently and thus costing yourself some swing speed and distance. An upright lie angle means that the angle between the shaft and the ground is larger than it should be, making the club shaft more upright compared to the ground.

Does 1 degree flat mean?

A golf club’s lie angle measures the angle formed by the shaft and the clubhead’s sole. If the lie angles of your clubs are 1 degree greater than the manufacturer’s standard, your clubs are 1 degree flat. If your lie angles are lower by 1 degree, the clubs are 1 degree upright.

Do shorter golfers need shorter clubs?

Shorter golfers are often better served with shorter clubs, while the lie angle (how the club sits on the ground) may also need tweaking. If your clubs are too long and/or upright, you’ll be forced to adjust away from a swing that’s natural for you.

How can I tell my swing speed?

Divide your average drive distance by 2.3. This will give you your average club head speed in miles per hour. For instance, if your average drive distance is 202 yards, your average club head speed is 202 divided by 2.3, or approximately 87.8 mph.
