Selecting the Best Driver Loft

Many golfers select the wrong driver loft for their ability and strength. They believe that a low lofted driver will hit longer drives which is absolutely untrue! The best loft angle for a driver is determined by swing speed and ability. Male golfers swing an "average" speed of 87 mph using a driver, however many golfers who score 100 or higher swing between 65 - 80 mph.

Swing a 10.5° Driver at 50 mph, total distance is 87 yards. If 14° Driver is used, total distance would be 96 yards.

Swing a 10.5° Driver at 60 mph, total distance is 127 yards. If 14° Driver is used, total distance would be 137 yards.

Swing a 10.5° Driver at 70 mph, total distance is 164 yards. If 14° Driver is used, total distance would be 176 yards.

Swing a 10.5° Driver at 80 mph, total distance is 206 yards. If 14° Driver is used, total distance would be 216 yards.

Swing a 9.5° Driver at 90 mph, total distance is 229 yards. If 12° Driver is used, total distance would be 245 yards.
