  1. Good Day Club Fitters and those knowledgeable on this subject. Question. My driver is 8.5 degrees and set to neutral. If my attack angle is 4 degrees up, then shouldn't my launch angle be close to 12.5 degrees? My swing speed has decreased from 111 mph 14 years ago, (I blame my age and lack of fitness) to 102 mph. So I'm researching driver lofts. I want my launch angle to be between 12 -14 degrees to get the optimum carry and roll distance for my swing speed. (Yes I know shafts play into this as well, so I will comb this sight to see member reviews on shafts). I recently switched to the Byron Nelson 1 plane swing (as taught by Tom Saguto) to shallow out my driver to achieve a better attack angle. Yeah I know (just go get fitted) but I still want to do my research before dropping all that cash. Thanks in advance for your time.
  2. I am looking for need advice to see if my thought process regarding having different angle of attack for individual irons or groups of irons. Regarding my 19* Utility Iron, 5 iron and 6 iron I currently focus on more of a sweeping motion as in hitting a fairway wood. Hit the ball first with little to no divot. From 7 iron on thru my wedges I currently focus on a negative attack angle hitting the ball first and leaving the divot after. I am way off with this? Pros? Cons? I look forward to your advice. Thank you
  3. Hi! I've read many places that average attack angle for drives by PGA Tours is down on the ball (about -1 degree I believe). Then why do most (if not all) instructors teach us ordinary golfers to hit up on the ball with the driver? Just curious...
