Revealing the lie
It does impact accuracy
Test after test conducted by golf magazines, club fitters, and even those trying to “bust” myths, substantiates the fact that you’ll hit more accurate approach shots if your lie angle is a perfect match to your golf swing.
Irons toe down
Strike the ball with the toe slightly down and
your ball will go right of the target (right-handers).
Iron heel down
Strike the ball with heel down and your ball
will travel left of the target (right-handers).
The mechanics of this are obvious really. Make contact with the turf with the toe of the club and the club face will open. Make contact with the heel and the face closes. It’s how imperceptible it feels to most of us, and how large the impact is, that surprises everyone.
Are your clubs telling a lie?
Do you think you’ve hit a solid shot but missed on one side? Is it your setup; your swing path and face angle; or your lie angle? You’d be blown away to discover how many golfers play with a lie angle that makes the game harder. Make it easier to hit better golf shots.

An improvement changing your game
If you want to go from experiencing an average golf game to a better golf game, where you take more frustration-free walks down fairways and then step with an excited bounce towards a green full of opportunity after a sweet approach shot:
Then often a small change, from steering the golf ball to releasing
the clubhead through the golf ball, results in:

What would cause you to smile more often on the golf course? What would give you cause for celebration?
If “greater consistency” of ball striking will help deliver a smile or celebration,
