    How to Know Whether to Use a 10.5 or 9.5 Loft

    A golf club’s loft refers to the club face’s angle relative to the club’s shaft, according to PGA pro Mark Blakemore. The least-lofted golf club, other than a putter, is the driver. Drivers are typically lofted between 8 and 11 degrees, so drivers with lofts of 9.5 and 10.5 degrees are common. The higher-lofted driver is typically a better choice for an amateur player.
