Most average swing speed golfers (88-90 mph) don’t use enough loft in their drivers due to seeing the pros using 9-10 degrees effective loft.
I typically recommend 10.5-13.0 deg loft for the avg.
club head speed for maximum distance, particularly carry.
This even applies for golfers up to 100 mph.
What driver loft do most pros use?
Golfers with club-head speeds below 85 mph should use a loft angle between 14 and 20 degrees. For speeds of 130 mph and above, try a loft between 4 and 7 degrees. Compare the feel of drivers within the loft range that fits your club head speed at the practice facility at your local golf equipment store or pro shop.
What degree driver hits the farthest?
Golfers with a slower swing speed need a higher-lofted driver in order to launch the ball into the air for more distance. Experienced golfers typically use a loft of about 9.5, while a high handicapper usually will get the best results with a loft of 12 degrees or more.
What is the average loft on a driver?
Drivers are typically lofted between 8 and 11 degrees, so drivers with lofts of 9.5 and 10.5 degrees are common. The higher-lofted driver is typically a better choice for an amateur player. Consider your swing speed. The lower your swing speed, the more you’ll benefit from a club with greater loft.
Does higher loft driver help my slice?
Driver loft to reduce a slice
Many golfers may argue that a 12-degree driver will loose them too much distance. However 2.5 degrees more loft (compared to a 9.5-degree Driver) will only ever result in the golf ball launching 2.5 degrees higher.
