Recommended Driver Lofts
Recommended Driver Loft
Many golfers select the wrong driver loft for their ability and strength. Below are average distances for different driver lofts. The yardage shaded in yellow would show the correct driver loft for type of player listed in the left column. For example, if you swing 90 mph, notice that when using a 12° loft driver, you will actually hit the ball 16 yards further than you would if you hit a 9.5° driver loft (245 yards vs. 229 yards).
Have you ever wondered why you sometimes hit your 3-wood or even your 5-wood as far or even further than you hit your driver? Now you know why.
If you are a beginner or an occasional golfer, select the highest loft available.
