Best Driver Loft Angle

Have you ever wondered why you sometimes hit your 3-wood as far or farther than your your driver?

1. Loft Angle: The #3 Wood has 15° - 16° which will get the ball airborne much easier

Using the correct loft on a driver is similar to using a garden hose. A person turns up the hose to full power to try to get the longest distance of water spray. If you suddenly turned down the water pressure, you would see a loss of distance in the spray. In order to regain some of that distance, you raise the angle of the nozzle!

Same thing is true with a driver. With a slower swing speed (less distance), you need a higher lofted driver to get the ball airborne.

If Your NORMAL Average Drive Distance is 0 - 140 yards, your Driver Loft Should Be 16.5°
If Your NORMAL Average Drive Distance is 140 - 160 yards, your Driver Loft Should Be 15.5°
If Your NORMAL Average Drive Distance is 160 - 180 yards, your Driver Loft Should Be 15°
If Your NORMAL Average Drive Distance is 180 - 195 yards, your Driver Loft Should Be 14°
If Your NORMAL Average Drive Distance is 195 - 210 yards, your Driver Loft Should Be 13°
If Your NORMAL Average Drive Distance is 210 - 225 yards, your Driver Loft Should Be 12°
