Clubface Roll - Affect of Loft

This is a PREVIEW of a PREMIUM video. To watch the entire video, click here.

Description

There are numerous things that affect the overall distance you will hit your drives and one of the biggest factors is not your golf swing, it's your equipment. Today's modern high performance drivers are far more advanced then drivers of just 10 years ago, but some old "technology" remains the same. In this video, I am discussing the effect of the "roll" designed into the clubface and how it can dramatically help or hurt your driving distance.


Video Practice Points
  • Learn about the characteristics of the driver face so you can take them into account and hit longer drives
  • The driver has bulge from heel to toe, developed to improve huge hooks & slices when hitting near the heel or toe
  • The face also has roll, a curve on the vertical axis that changes the loft of the club by several degrees depending on where it is hit
  • Each additional degree of loft adds about 300 rpm of spin to the ball, which affects distance
  • Use a loft/lie gauge to learn more about your club, and a dry erase marker to show where the ball is striking the club face
