MY DAUGHTER IS IN A GROWTH SPURT AND IN NOW NEED FOR HER CLUBS THAT ARE 4 DEGREES FLAT AND SHE HAS NEW MAVRIK IRONS THAT CANNOT BE BENT THAT FAR – ANY IDEAS?

Can’t emphasize enough and in agreement with Rlafoone that you should have her hit a lie board with the new length clubs. Better yet, have a professional club fitter do it. It’s not always as simple as changing the lie based on the length change of 1/2″ increase in length equaling 1 degree change in lie. Sometimes that equation works, but changes in length, and the change in weight that accompanies that change, can change the delivery through impact. Get the correct length, then do a dynamic lie fit test with a lie board. Only way to precisely fit lie angle.

I would assume you have increased the length of her shafts for such an extreme change (1/2″ increase in length =1 degree increase in lie angle). That’s quite a growth spurt!

Ensure you actually need to adjust lie that much. Verify by hitting off a lie board, or hitting balls with a sharpie line on the golf ball perpendicular to the scoring lines. Verify before bending!

OR

If the clubs were 2 degrees flat to begin with, you may actually be bending to 2 degree upright
