upright lie

The lie of a golf club is a measurement of the angle between the club shaft and the bottom of the clubhead. The term “upright” describes a club with a more vertical lie than standard. For example, standard lie for a driver is 56°, so any driver with a lie angle of 57° or more is considered upright.

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