    The chart showing the results illustrates why you are hooking the ball when the lie angle is correct. Your angle of approach into the ball is too far from the inside rather than straight through the ball toward impact. No wonder you hook it when using an iron with the proper lie angle. As Scratchscorer says, you are masquerading (hiding) your real swing flaw. Fix your swing path. Then you will be able to use the correct lie angle.
    You also ignore a problem that is created when using the wrong lie angle. When the lie angle of the club is too flat (toe down) for a player’s swing only the toe is on the ground. The heel is off the ground making solid contact less likely. Even the sole at the middle of the face is off the ground at impact. Conversely, if the the lie of the iron is too upright, only the heel of the club is on the ground. Both of those fitting errors made solid contact less likely.

    You don’t have to watch the video. I’ll give you my +2 index and 20+ years fitting experience answer right here. There’s 2 ways to fit lie angle. 1- use a lie board and watch( if you have average swing knowledge) the swings the person makes from shot to shot and get the mark centered on quality swings. 2 make the lie angle wrong on purpose to fix a flawed swing and flawed ball shape. I’ll give you a wild guess which is correct. You need a flat at impact iron position to insure clean turf interaction. You can use an adjustable hosel on a wood to fix flight path due to minimal to no turf interaction. Your welcome, no charge.

    You guys need a script writer and prep it before you start filming these segments.
    You already know what you want to say, but you jump into it by filming without having the correct things to say, so your explanations make you sound like you have no idea what you’re talking about, you sound like amateurs.
    And you don’t have to do this stuff LIVE, you can re-record properly all the segments and get the data you want on the screen and the explanatory words correct. You should also have done various shots, including a straight one, and a sliced one and compared all of those things, you should also have done it with long clubs and short clubs, etc.
    Lets get it right, if you really want to set the record straight for everybody, for posterity. Remember, this stuff remains on the web forever.
    Fricking amateurs sheesh

    Here is the ideal method (dynamic lie angle) to confirm golf club interaction
    with the turf.

    This is feeding the problem instead of the solution imho. Giving someone upright lie angles because they’re slicing masquerades the issue. Golf club interaction with the turf is much more fun when the lie angle fits correctly. Also easier to identify what you are doing with the face during the impact portion of the swing.

Why golf is so confusing

Published

on

This one is very important. One one side, the Tour pro says I do this subconsciously, then in the same breath he says I need to rotate the knee and push off the right and drop in the slot, etc…THIS IS WHY GOLF IS SO CONFUSING TO LEARN!

You cannot be two places at once — period. So, you either follow a trail of thinking like a breadcrumb trail through the ball to your target or you deliver through a task without thought, just intent. Wisdom in Golf has this structure for you in spades; it will show you the way from task and or analogy of what you already do well, then plug this into the golf swing and then apply to golf shots and keep you on task and prevent you from falling off the rails from fear of doing something wrong. In our book, you are incapable of doing wrong!
