#### Question: How To Determin The Loft On A Golf Iron?

The loft, is the angle between the face plane and the vertical plane the shaft is in, when the club is in the normal address position and the grooves are horizontal. Once you set up the club as described, **use a protractor to measure the angle between the face plane** (at 90 degrees to the grooves) and the vertical.

## How do you know the degree of a golf club?

Look at the golf club on the flat surface from both the front angle and the side angle. This will give you the best indication as to how the club is sitting. Depending on the type of lie-and-loft gauge you purchased, there may be lines letting you know that the club is in the right position and ready for measurement.

## What loft should a 7 iron be?

A traditional 7 iron loft is 35 degrees, however some higher handicap irons in recent years have been pushing that loft lower and lower. For example the Wilson Staff D7 7 iron is 28 degrees and Callaway’s Epic Forged and Rogue X irons were 27 degrees.

## How do I know what loft my wedge is?

Know your pitching wedge loft. If it’s 45 degrees or less, add three more wedges that are spaced apart by no more than 4-5 degrees each. So generally think about putting in a gap wedge that’s 48 or 50 degrees, a sand wedge that’s between 54 and 56 degrees, and a lob wedge that’s between 58 and 60 degrees.

## How much does 1 degree of loft affect distance?

The distance difference between clubs is created equally by the increments in club length and loft angle. The calculations here are based on 1/2″ club length difference = 5 yards distance difference and every 4° loft angle difference = 5 yards distance difference.

## What golf iron is 26 degrees?

4 iron = 26 (180-210 yards) 5 iron = 28 degrees (160 to 190 yards) 6 iron = 31 degrees (140 to 180 yards) 7 iron = 34 degrees (130 to 170 yards)

## What is a 32 degree golf club?

The loft and lie of a golf club are often misunderstood measurements. The 3-iron typically has 20 degrees of loft, the 5-iron has 25 degrees, the 7-iron has 32 degrees, the 9-iron has 41 degrees, and so on down through the wedges. The lob wedge will have the most loft at 60 degrees.

## Which golf club has the most loft?

An ultra lob wedge is used to hit a shot with higher and shorter trajectory than a standard lob wedge. This club is labeled “UL” and has a loft of about 64° and has the highest loft of any golf club.

## What loft is a 9 wood?

9 wood clubs typically have a loft close to 26 degrees while 3 or 4 hybrids typically have a loft of more like 28 degrees.

## What loft do pros use on Irons?

Professional golfers tend to play with a driver that has about 9.5 degrees of loft. Of course, there are some golfers who find 10.5 or 8.5 to be more effective, but you will generally see most players end up in the 9 to 9.5 range.

## How far does Tiger Woods hit a 7 iron?

Tiger Woods is a legend of golf but on average, how long does he hit a 7 iron? Tiger hits his 7 irons approximately 172 yards. This is an average figure and there will times when Tiger hits the ball closer to 200 yards.

## How do you measure a driver’s loft?

Today, to find the real or “effective loft” of any driver I always measure it from the hosel centerline to the face in the square position and at ½ the vertical face height. Of course as stated earlier, you need a precision golf club gauge to do it accurately.

## How far should I hit a 60 degree wedge?

How Far Should You Hit A 60 Degree Wedge? On average, golfers hit their 60-degree wedge 74 yards, but the range can vary between 60 and 100 yards. Longer hitters who take a full swing will typically be close to the 100-yard range but most golfers only take a 1/2 or 3/4 swing with their 60 degrees.

## Do you need a 60 degree wedge?

For the average golfer, having both a 56-degree sand wedge and a 60-degree lob wedge is completely unnecessary. A 56 or 58-degree wedge should be a lot more versatile for most and is the highest wedge loft that should be in most bags. My sand wedge was used for longer shots and in the sand.
