Tight Lie

What does Tight Lie mean in Golf?

A golf ball that’s right on the ground is a ‘Tight Lie’

In the world of golf, ‘Tight Lie’ describes a situation where the golf ball is close to the ground. It’s when the ball is on a hard surface and there’s hardly any grass underneath it. This creates very little space between the ball and the ground.

A tight lie can mess up a golfer’s swing as the ball is unusually close to the ground. This changes the way they have to hit the ball and can make the game more challenging. Tight lies are more common when golf courses are played during the winter season.

Another term for a tight lie is a “bare lie”. So, next time you hear someone use the term ‘tight lie’ or ‘bare lie’ in golf, remember, it’s all about where the ball is placed!
