It’s frequently asked question time here at Profectus Golf and I’m trying to hit the ball as low as I can. You’ll see on the screen behind me, I’ve got TrackMan running. I had a launch angle of 17.8 and a dynamic loft of 24. Dynamic loft? What is that? That means how much loft was on this club at the moment of impact. This club, as its built, has around 40 degrees of loft. But you’ll see at impact, I had 24.8. That’s how much I was leaning the shaft forward and hitting down on it and so on. What I get asked all the time is “Why does my ball go too high or go too low?” It’s really all of the answer is about how much loft there is at impact. If I add loft at impact, like I will on this ball, you’ll see the launch angle go up and the dynamic loft go up. All right, so now we’ll see the launch angle go to like 25 or so and the dynamic loft around 30 or so. So this is the same Club but I’m hitting it different launch angles. So you can either change the club to hit it lower or change the way you swing to hit it lower. But if you’re wondering why your ball goes too high or too low. It’s the loft. Whether it’s the way the club’s built or the way you’re swinging, the loft tells the whole tale of why the ball launches the way it does.
