Try these two ways to add loft:
- Set your clubface so it’s pointing slightly right of your target at address.
- Picture your hands above the ball’s position, not pushed forward, at impact.
- Keep your body turning through the shot.
- Swing your hands high to the finish (right).

How do I get more loft with my irons?
To create additional loft, have the feeling that your wrists are re-hinging faster on the follow-through side, creating an “L” between your right forearm and shaft halfway through. This encourages the right hand to unhinge a little sooner through impact, and not remain so bent back, adding more loft to the face.
What gives a golf ball loft?
The loft of the club corresponds to the angle made by the clubface and the ground. As such, depending on the shot at hand, a golfer can decide on the club to pick in accordance to how high the shot needs to travel, on top of the distance it needs to travel.
Why can’t I get height on my golf shots?
In order to get height on your golf shot, you need to understand the physics of the golf swing. For example, when hitting with a mid-level iron such as a 6 or 7 iron, know that if you swing down on the ball it will fly high. If you want to hit high with your driver you need to tee it up sufficiently high.
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 degree of loft is a 3 iron?
3 Iron Loft The loft of a 3 iron tends to be around 21 degrees, equal to a seven wood or 4 hybrid. They are more common than 2 irons but many golfers still prefer to use a hybrid as they are easier to hit.
Why are iron lofts getting stronger?
A stronger(lower) loft in newer irons will produce a higher ball flight than the weaker (higher) loft in older clubs. The intent is to make it easier to launch the ball higher and in the process easier to hit. Also, keep in mind modern clubs also have more forgiveness built into them.
Can you adjust loft on Irons?
You can easily bend the lofts and lies to be progressively consistent from one club to the next with zero tolerance. You can also bend the angles to a consistent specification precisely fit for any golfer.
Why do my golf shots stay low?
Low shots are the result of a faulty impact position (the position of the clubface as it strikes the ball) that de-lofts the clubface. Impact is the moment of truth in golf. Ben Hogan said, “The ultimate judge of your swing is the flight of the ball,” and impact determines ball flight.
Does higher loft mean less distance?
In general, the slower the swing or club speed, the higher the loft of the driver to optimize both carry and roll. Most drivers come in degrees of loft from 8.5 to 16. Now, if you could increase the loft to 12.4 degrees, your total distance would increase to 293 yards, an improvement of 15 yards.
Does lie angle affect loft?
If you have the proper lie angle, the center of the sole will rest squarely on the ground when you put the club down behind the ball. Then the lie angle is the space created between the shaft and the ground on the heel side of the club head. Lie angle also increases as the loft increases.
How does loft affect golf?
The loft of your club is determined by the angle of the face in correlation to the center of the shaft. Loft affects trajectory and spin rate so it determines the distance the ball will travel. More loft typically generates a higher trajectory and more spin while lower loft causes the ball to fly lower and spin less.
