Re: What does the 9.5, 10,5, and 12.5 etc mean?

I'm not ashamed to play a 10.5 degree driver now.
Most folks getting in the game who lust for a driver also do better (usually) with the higher lofts. I've seen some even go with 13 degrees and game them well.
It's all about confidence and what you believe
you will hit the best, too.
