Just want to confirm it quick. I hit all my irons/wedges today with a ball and they all consistently were on the heel side. I measured it about 3/4" from center for all of them. So I'm looking at adjusting them 3 degrees flatter right? Thanks

the ball flight and its starting direction are more important. Sole tape marks could be before or after impact and dont always match up to flight so go with that

Off center hits are not necessarily a lie angle thing. Check your club length and the distance to the ball in the address position. There is a chance that the shaft is too long or that you're standing to close to the ball.
If the balls starting direction is straight, you shouldn't alter the lie angle. To find the right lie angle you need to observe the ball flight and its starting direction. If there is anything to concern about, you need tape on the sole of the club head to find the proper lie angle.

Many years ago the last time I went through a fitting for irons the lie angle was evaluated with tape on the sole of the club and length of the club was evaluated by impact location on the face. I'm sure there are other ways of doing it but that is (was?) a fairly standard approach.

I would agree with the others, however, using your "calculations," 1* per 1/4" is high. I've always gone more by 1* per 1/2".

It's a process. Take your time. Start with 2* and see what kind of results your get and tweak from there.

Check for length first. Wrong lie angle would mean the ball is starting offline.
