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 I know the degree of my wedge?

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.

## What degrees are my irons?

In the longer irons a three-iron usually comes in at around 20 degrees, a four-iron at roughly 25 degrees and a five-iron at 29 degrees of loft. A six-iron is typically 31 degrees, a seven iron is usually around 34 degree and then the eight and nine-irons often come with 37 and 41 degrees of loft respectively.

## How do you determine loft and lie?

Think of the shaft of the the golf club and the ground underneath it forming an angle where the heel of the club is touching the ground. This is your lie angle. You can adjust this up or down depending on your needs based on your swing.

## How do you determine the loft and lie of an iron?

How to test your lie angles

- Place a sole tape or black electrical tape on the sole of your club.
- Hit a ball solidly off of a lie board.
- Measure how far the center of the sole impact impression is from the center of the scoring lines.
- Have your lie angles bent 1 degree for every from the centerline.

## What is the loft of a 5 iron?

A standard 5 iron loft is 27 degrees.

## 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.

## What is a 26 degree golf club?

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)

## 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 lofts are wedges?

After your 9-iron comes a choice of wedges, which can range in lofts from 45-64°, and normally you’ll find these lofts displayed on the heads. Traditionally, pitching wedges are lofted from 45-50°, gap wedges from 50-54°, sand wedges from 54-58°, and lob wedges from 58-64°.

## What loft is approach wedge?

Gap wedge – The gap wedge, often referred to as the approach wedge, or the A wedge, has a loft of 51° to 53 degrees.

## What loft is a 1 iron?

The 1 iron, or driving iron, is the lowest lofted and longest iron ( 14 or 16 degrees of loft ), although Wilson did make a 0 iron for John Daly.

## 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.

## How do you loft an iron?

Try these two ways to add loft:

- Set your clubface so it’s pointing slightly right of your target at address.

- Keep your body turning through the shot.
- Swing your hands high to the finish (right).
