It’s like shooting a gun into the ground.
All right so what you’re looking at on the screen here is called the optimizer. Basically it’s taking how fast you swing and the fact that you’re hitting a 3-wood and tells us like what would be perfect. If you look at it you’ll notice that the launch angle is ten and a half and what’s recommended for perfect would be fourteen. So the thing that influences is launch the most is loft. Alright, so that’s a little bit of why I gave you a sixteen and a half degree 3-wood and why Garrick said he’s launching the ball and hitting it kind of on the low side but even though we gave you that higher lofted 3-wood it’s still low launched so if we know that the equipment is meant to hit it high but it doesn’t so we know that it must be the guy holding it. The reason why your ball moves lower overall is because of where this attack angle is. To reach this 179 number, it’s recommended that it be a lot shallower. So what you’ll see if you look at the screen, it’s only six yards apart whoop dee doo. But you’ll see that it takes a much different height to get there. Right now it’s actually not all that important for your 3-wood because you’re not ever probably thinking about landing the 3-wood softly you just want it to go as far as it can. But if we look back into your history on these three woods, you’ll se it’ll say 8.2, 7. Like it’s pretty far down. If you hit down on something it’s gonna go lower than if you don’t. The ball just never seems to get the chance to use up all this ball speed. It’s getting hit pretty hard. It’s like shooting a gun into the ground. It doesn’t change the way that we fit you we still give you the 3-wood with that much loft. It’s just that the ball is launching low not because of the club but how the club is approaching the ball.
