|Meaning||A golf ball laying directly on the ground|
A tight lie is a term used in golf to describe the placement of a ball close to the ground. The placement consists of the ball on a hard surface with very little grass to create space between the ball and the ground.
A tight lie can be disruptive to a golfer's swing because the ball is closer to the ground than usual. Tight lies occur more often on courses during the winter season. A tight lie may also be referred to as a "bare lie."
"His tee shot resulted in a tight lie just short of the green."
