Does Golf Club Lie Angle Affect Direction?

Yes, Lie Angle Affects Direction

Everything about the golf swing eventually comes down to one question.  Did my golf ball go where I wanted it to?  Let’s talk about how much affect lie angle has on the direction of your golf ball.

What is Golf Club Lie Angle?

You have heard over and over again how important it is to have your clubs fitted to your swing.  But you are probably thinking “How much difference can it really make?”.  The answer could be a significant amount depending on how far out of line your clubs are with your swing.

First, we need to make sure we have a good understanding of what lie angle is.  The lie angle is the angle between the sole of the club and shaft.  If the toe is down at impact, the lie angle would be considered flat.  A toe up condition would be considered upright.  An ideal lie angle would have the sole of the club parallel with the ground at impact.

Now that we understand what the lie angle is, let’s talk about the effects of having clubs with the wrong lie angle.  Continue reading Does Golf Club Lie Angle Affect Direction?

Love Stress and Wasting Time? Sell Your Clubs on eBay or Craigslist!

Save Time and Stress with Golf Club Brokers

I know what you’re thinking.

You have a set of clubs or maybe a driver that you need to sell but you’re not sure which route to take. You’ve considered posting it on eBay or Craigslist… though you know there’s always the risk of unreliable buyers or other bumps down those roads. Then, you had the idea of selling it to a friend, but your friends never seem to want what you have when you have it. And finally, you’ve reluctantly thought about pawning it outright to a company that buys and sells golf clubs.

A company like Golf Club Brokers.

But let’s be honest. When it comes right down to it, you’re going to make less money selling your clubs to Golf Club Brokers than you would if you listed it yourself.

Let me explain exactly what I mean.

I’ve been selling on eBay for nearly two decades and if there’s one thing I know, it’s that eBay can be a complete pain in the neck.

I don’t need that stress and neither do you. Continue reading Love Stress and Wasting Time? Sell Your Clubs on eBay or Craigslist!

Counterfeit Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport 2 Putter

Counterfeit Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport 2 Putter

We recently had someone try to sell us a counterfeit Scotty Cameron putter and we decided to post some pictures to help everyone out.  This particular model came out in 2008 and is the Studio Select Newport 2.

While counterfeit clubs are getting better in quality, it is still pretty easy to spot the counterfeit when comparing side by side with an authentic club.

The problem is that most of the time you will not have an authentic club to compare it to.  If it is a newer model club that is still available in stores, you should take it to an authorized retailer so you can compare them side by side.  If your putter is a different model, search around Google to see if you can find pictures of a counterfeit like yours.

However, if you are unable to find one exactly like yours, the pictures and details below should help you get an idea of some of the common differences between an authentic Scotty Cameron and a counterfeit.
