Optimum Driver Loft Angle

Ever wondered why you sometimes hit your 3-wood as far as you hit your driver? It is similar to using a garden hose turned up 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 golf driver. With a slower swing speed (less distance), you need a higher lofted driver which raises the trajectory to regain some of that distance.

If Your NORMAL Average Drive Distance Is Your Driver Loft Should Be
180 - 195 yards 14°
195 - 210 yards 13°
210 - 225 yards 12°
