In golf what is the difference between a 10.5 degree and 9 degree driver?
There is a 9 degree driver on sale and I typically have used a 10 or 10.5 degree. I know the angle is different, but what are the benefits of both? I am a novice, this is my second year playing and I shoot about 100-110. I am an erratic driver and I am wondering which driver degree would be best. I can generally shoot straight but not all that far. When I do tee off far it generally breaks hard right. I am right handed. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
Well since I see only one answer here that is even remotely correct. To answer your actual question. 1. The choice of a driver should be totally dependent on how well you hit a particular driver. No other consideration is relevant at all! Try several out on a launch monitor....Only buy the one you hit best. For the Slice problem...See a teaching pro and get a lesson or two.....its cheap and you will be amazed at the difference in club performance once your swing is good.
the 9 degree one will fly lower of course. but as you decrease the angle on your clubs it gets hard to control the straightness of the drive. so if youre prone to slicing the lower degree driver will make it worse.
i am by no means a pro but i shoot in the 80s generally. when i was first starting to pay the game I teed off with a 3 wood only and almost never used my driver because I sliced alot. I read this tip in a book by harvey penick. I think it was called harvey penicks little red book of golf or something. very good book that was more about the mental aspects of the game. I highly reccomend it. gl.
I use a 9 and have for the last 2 years. I shoot about 80-85. I have seen a slight increase in my distance but the thing that helped my swing was the shaft flexibility. I use a stiff shaft now. This might help correct your problems. I swing very hard and it took the left to right out of my ball.
it`s not the driver it`s your swing, your inconsistent. try concentrating on improving your grip
A 10.5 will hit the ball higher and it will give the ball more back spin, which keeps the ball straight. A 9 degree driver will hit the ball lower and it will run more, but it puts more side spin on the ball. You should probably stick with the 10.5.
Start by slowing down your swing until the basic fundamentals are in place.
Go to the driving range, start to hit balls soft and straight, then pick up the speed . You sound as if you may be overswinging, thereby forcing your weight through the ball and you also may be "breaking" your wrists, this is possibly what is causing you to "push" the ball to the right on your follow through.
Remember to let the club do the work,have fun !!
