How to adjust the lie angle on hybrid golf clubs
The club should be on its sole if you have the correct lie angle. (Golf Legs image by Vanessa van Rensburg from Fotolia.com)

According to GolfSpyder, the lie angle is the angle between the bottom of the club and the shaft. Having the correct lie angle when using a hybrid club is very important because the hybrid club is designed to rescue the golfer from situations that are difficult on the course. By not playing this club with a good lie angle you are limiting the ability of the club to rescue you from a poor shot or lie.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Approach your golf ball with a hybrid golf club. Place the club head on the ground behind the ball. Check to see what the lie angle is. If the lie angle is correct, the sole of the hybrid golf club should be laying flush against the ground. If the sole of the club is not flush on the ground then you may want to rework your grip on the club or your stance in an effort to get the sole of the club flush.

  2. 2

    Lower the toe of the hybrid club to make sure it is flush on the ground with the sole if you see that you are too upright. An upright lie angle means that you are standing too far away from the ball and that during the swing the heel of the club will hit the ground before the rest of the club. The result will be a pulling or hooking golf shot. Slowly move towards the ball three inches at a time until you get to a distance where you are comfortable and the lie angle is correct on the hybrid club.

  3. 3

    Lower the heel of the hybrid club down to ensure that it is flush on the ground with the sole if you notice that you are too flat. If you have a flat lie angle with a hybrid club then you are most likely standing too close to the ball. A flat lie angle will result in a push or a slice because the toe of your club sill come through first and hit the ground before the rest of the club. Back away from the ball three inches at a time until you reach a distance where the lie angle is correct.

Tips and warnings

  • Your clubs can be adjusted to ensure proper lie angle if more conventional adjustments do not work.
  • A poor lie angle will cause your shots to be wildly inaccurate.
