Lie angle is the vertical orientation of the clubhead. It affects the direction the clubface is pointing, and thus how the ball leaves the clubface. If the lie angle is too upright, the clubface will point to the left of the clubhead's leading edge. If the lie angle is too flat, the clubface will point to the right of the leading edge.
There are two important factors to consider when considering the lie angle of an iron. First, lie angle should be fitted dynamically, meaning that the club fitter should examine the lie angle when the club is impacting the ball. How the clubhead sits at address has no bearing on performance. Second, lie is fitted after shaft length has been selected because length affects dynamic lie angle – every 1/2" of length added makes the iron play 1 degree more upright; the reverse is true for reduced length.
A term used to describe a lie angle in which the toe of any metal wood, iron or putter is higher than standard, or higher than preferred at impact. If the lie angle is too upright, the clubface will point to the left of the leading edge.

Choose a shaft length that allows the player to produce the maximum amount of speed without sacrificing control. Height and a wrist-to-floor measurement (in inches) can be used to determine cusom lengths. Club length can be altered up to one inch longer or shorter.
Shaft length plays an important role in club's head speed, path, attack angle and the player's ability to make solid contact. As shaft length increases, clubhead speed also increases. There is a point when the weight of a longer shaft, combined with the awkwardness of controlling the extra length, will result in diminishing clubhead speed. As shaft length increases, it is common for players to deliver the club more from the outside and on a shallower angle of attack. It also becomes more difficult to make solid contact.
The shaft length is based on the golfer's height, arm length and posture, as well as consistent clubhead delivery. Most of the time, a golfer who is tall, or has short arms, or both, will make better contact with an over-length club. The same would be true for a shorter golfer using an under-length club. Sometimes a golfer's height and arm length will negate each other and a standard length is the best option. As length is increased, so is the weight. Increasing the length also changes shaft flex. For every 1" added, the shaft becomes one flex softer; likewise, a shorter shaft plays stiffer. Shaft length also affects lie angle.
NOTE: Women's clubs are traditionally 1" shorter than men's. To determine the correct length for a woman, simply add one inch to the length suggested in the chart. For example, if the chart suggests shortening a man's club by one inch, a woman's club (already one inch shorter) might not need any length adjustment.
We recommend a grip that is comfortable in both size and texture. Grip size and texture will affect how the club feels to a player. Most players with large hands prefer oversize grips and the opposite is true for players with small hands. The texture and material of a grip is purely personal preference with no performance implications. Some grips however do perform better than others in inclement weather. Our research indicates that grip size must be extremely thin or thick before it affects a player's ability to rotate the clubface.
Grips can be purchased and sent to you so you can install yourself or we can install the purchased grips here for clubs in our inventory or clubs that are being sent to Callaway Golf Pre-Owned. We can also add extra tape wraps under the grip to build up the size of the grip. See All Available Grips
