flat lie golf clubs term 1

    The lie of a golf club is a measurement of the angle between the shaft and the bottom of the clubhead. The term “flat” describes a club with a more horizontal lie than standard. For example, standard lie for a driver is 56°, so any driver with a lie angle of 55° or less is considered flat.

    A clubfitter may build clubs with flat lie angles for certain golfers depending on their stature and swing. Thomas Golf (www.thomasgolf.com) offers free clubfitting on its website.
