Proper Loft Angle
The loft of the club is simply how many degrees the face angle is in relationship to the ground. A driver will have approximately 7 to 14 degrees of loft while a wedge will have 50 to 60 degrees of loft. Loft is important because it will allow you to control the distance of your shots. You must be careful when adjusting the loft of a club because it can create a dig or bounce sole that can ruin the characteristics of your clubs design. If you plan to change the loft of a club, consult a professional.
