    That all depends on how you swing at the ball and where your hands are at impact. If your hands are behind the ball you will sky everything and put a nice dummy mark on your driver.

    taking into consideration a few other factors are lined up right, that statement has some merit to it.

    I know how you feel brother. If I tee the ball up high I hit the moon because my hands are way behind the ball at impact which adds loft.

    I tee the ball up pretty high but when I do it to high or as high as it can I get way to much loft.

    Not when you start launching it 3-wood + loft! More loft also means more back spin which means less distance. The highest I tee it is 3/4 of the ball above the top line. Usually its around half or less. That said I do hit a high ball and have a few sh!t head marks on my driver.



    And flamtrap, its not good to go around making generalizations. After a few false ones you start to get a bad rep.

    its funny how i read the quote "more loft = more distance " out of david leadbetters 100% golf book.

    who do you think you are? Butch Harmon? image/ok.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    This made me laugh.



    I challenge you to take a lob wedge, drill it so it is the same weight as a driver head and install a driver length and weight shaft in it.



    I will bet any **** thing you want that your driver will go further. If you are going to say thats because the COR in your wedge isn't nearly as high as that in your driver, then I have another example, what will go further in x direction, a bullet fired directly in x direction on a perfectly horizontal plane or a bullet fired straight up? Infact lets make the gun a 30-06 just for the **** of it. Or how about this, why do the longest hitters in the world (Zuback etc.) use drivers which very little loft if more loft means more distance? Its not for accuracy because if anything less loft decreases backspin which allows sidespin to have a greater effect on the balls flight path (usually a curve).



    I agree that more loft equals more distance but only to a certain degree.



    That said, I don't agree with alot of what David Leadbetter preaches, I'm more of a Butch harmon type swinger (ie Adam Scott, and old Tiger). One drill I do use that Leadbetter uses is used to keep the arms and body working together.





    Anyways, if you need more examples, let me know. I would be more than happy to explain any more insanely simple concepts that you cannot grasp also. Need help with some math, well thats my specialty.

    the saying more loft=more distance, has limits. it you hit your driver as hight as a 5 wood or p wedge your in troble. every thing that teachers and pros say is good (most the time) within reson. just like if you want to loose weight and you eat 4 salads for dinner and think is better than a slice of pizza your insane

    i've always found that a good rule of thumb is to have your trajectory somewhere around the tree line give or take, now how you get there is up to you.

    Actually, the driver, out of any club in the bag should go the highest from the ground. image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='(cool)' />

    I have to disagree, I think the 3-wood should have a higher apex and launch angle than your driver.

    15 (get my permit in 10 days), and why should age be the determining factor?

    man if i tee it up high i sky it. I tried this and mashed by 975j it had so many marks. and anyway on the titleist videos vijay says tee it lower to hit your driver more accurate.

    my dad told me that when he was getting fit from callaway that they told him that all clubs should have the same apex but some will just get hight faster

    I tend to agree. I hit my driver about the same height as my sand wedge but the wedge only goes 120 vs. the driver which can co up to 2.5 times that length. I get the wedge up faster but the driver goes just as high.

    since i have started teeing it up higher i have had a much more penertrating ball flight. i have 3 quarters of the ball above the club face so with other drivers it wont seem high cos mine is a 350cc model

    ya watson crushes the ball no doubt, and when we say more loft were not talking about a lob wedge buddy, were talking from 8*-10.5*, like hogue said, its alldepends if everything is in order, and we can all admit to hitting rockets to the moon...

    When Leadbetter says that more loft=more distance and to tee the ball up higher, with a few exceptions to good players, in general he is talking to the hacker crowd that tees the ball up very, very low and tries to hit their driver the same way they hit their PW.
