Response to Curious
if the ball is sitting against a hard surface it causes friction against the bottom of the ball as it is impacted with the club face. This would momentarily keep the ball from spinning and then as it leaves contact with the ground the spin would be therefore more then it would be without the contact to a hard surface.
An interesting test might be to hit a ball off of two sided carpet tape from a board, and measure the spin. Of course a normal board vs. a ball that is teed up would be interesting.
In my mind I am quite certain that I get more spin from a tight lie then I do from a ball that is teed up. I do not know why that is though.
I will run some tests first chance I get.
