upright club for draw?

Is it true that a more upright club gives you a better chance to draw the ball.  I am 5-9 with standard lie on my 710 CB's but heard that a more upright club is easier to draw the ball.  I tend to fade most shots and always felt I should get a flatter lie angle due to my shorter height.  Any info out there

Not IMO...for me it's the swing path.  Although my AP2's are 2 degrees upright I can still fade if necessary...

Very true

That's the More Draw setting on the adjustable metals.  Increase lie angle, increase draw - ...when all else is equal with grip, setup, distance from ball, etc.

of course! look at an exemple of the 913d drivers, the lie can change to promote a draw or a fade, when the club is upright, the face angle tends to be a little more left. But the big difference would be your impact angle, just like offset clubs, upright clubs works out just like them but the effect is not as big since the lie can affect only 1 or 2 degrees of the club face. changing lies would be something to learn back because you were used to an upright club

If the club is too upright the heel will dig in first causing you to pull your shots. I would work on technique to draw the ball.

You should hit off a lie board and have your clubs bent where you need them.

Joe, as another 5'9" golfer, I have had my clubs 2 degrees upright for years.  I did not make this decision to make it easier to draw the ball, but to get a better strike on the ball.  My tendency was to dig the toe into the turf first and the upright lie has helped reduce that.  My sense is that the change in the lie did not affect the shape of the shot, but improved the contact.  I have always been a draw player especially with my irons, but can fade a bit when absolutely necessary, even with the upright lie.

I'm 6 ft and set up at 1 up .   At address it looks to far up but, at impact with hands forward it flattens perfectly...Your swing path, ball position  and club face angle should determine your ball flight...

The correct thing to do is have your lie angle adjusted so the scuff marks are centered on the sole when using the lie board.

Hitting a draw or fade is a function of swing path and clubface at impact.    If you're swinging leftward (for righties) with the clubface open at impact (still square to the target) you get a fade.  If you swing rightward (with the clubface closed at impact) you get a draw.

An upright club will cause the toe of the club to point up slightly.  This causes a pull or hook.

Also another thing is that if you flex your knees more with a flat club (causing a flat swing plane) you pull the shot.
