The most important thing about measuring lie angle for each particular golfer is how the club is interacting with the ground at impact. The angle of the club when you address the ball is not necessarily important.
There are only two scenarios that occur when your lie angle is not adjusted properly for your swing.
- The club is too upright, and the toe is not making contact with the ground at impact.
- The club is too flat, and the heel is not making contact with the ground at impact.
