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.
How do you determine the correct height for golf clubs?
Height Recommendations for Irons
- Six feet, six inches and taller-add two inches to the standard length of the club.
- Six feet, five inches-add one and a half inches to the standard length of the club.
- Six feet, three inches to six feet, five inches-add one inch to the standard length of the club.
What is the standard loft of a 7 iron?
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 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.
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 is loft and lie measured?
Measuring the club’s lie off the center of the club’s sole in a specification gauge is impossible to do accurately and it is almost impossible to repeat the measurement. Loft and lie angles are accurately measured from the club’s face attitude (horizontal score lines) to the shaft plane.
How long should golf clubs be for 6 2?
For example, for a golfer that stands 6’2” and has a wrist-to-floor of 39”, the recommendation for proper club length would be 1/2” longer than standard length.
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.
How far should a 34 degree 7 iron go?
7 iron = 34 degrees ( 130 to 170 yards )
How far does Tiger Woods hit a 7 iron?
