Iron Lie Angle


I got new 718 irons, which have been fantastic. I want to give my old irons to my son, but they are standard lie, and he plays 1 degree upright.

My question is would a 1 deg lie angle difference matter, would that small amount be noticeable?

Thanks in advance for any responses.

    Have him try them and see, if there is an issue then have them bent 1* up.

    A one degree lie angle accounts for 5-7 yards in dispersion of shots. I recommend you get him fitted and adjust the clubs accordingly. I played with my fathers hand me downs for years before getting fitted. He was more flat lie and I was upright, balls used to fade off target. I check my lie setups every 3 months to keep them accurate. Just checked them and they were .5 to 1 degree off since June.

    I wonder how often the pros have theirs checked?

    Barry has given you some great advice. Have him hit them using Trackman if it is available at the club you play. Always good to double check.

    I had my set of 695 CB's adjusted from +2 degrees back down to standard ( 0 degrees of adjustment ), and it made a HUGE difference. I would get unexplainable shanks and literally could not strike a ball that was even 2" below my feet ( got to the point that I'd be taking a wholly inappropriate club and using quarter swings, or laying up out of a downhill lie before I could get them adjusted ).

    Once I got them adjusted, I was back to normal form. I'm not a single digit golfer but I DO have a consistent swing, so I knew something was up. Obviously, 1 degree will have a slightly smaller effect, but principle applies.

    Thanks for all the replies. I am going to take him to a fitter with the irons and have them adjusted accordingly.
