Dynamic Loft Decoded | Golf Swing Basics


Anyone aware of the Trackman system or swing instructors who utilize the system probably have heard the phrase “Dynamic Loft” – though many may have trouble understanding what element this term describes in their golf swing.

Dynamic loft, defined by the Trackman system as “The vertical clubface orientation at the center-point of contact between the club face and the golf ball at the time of maximum compression”

It can be easily understood by players to describe the level of loft on their clubface during impact, being measured in relation to the horizon.

Many golfers refer to this measurement as delivered loft, which they find to be a better description for this golf swing element.

George Gankas golf lessons aim to elevate the existing abilities that are naturally found in a golfer, while working to diminish any flawed motion present in their swing.

Practitioners of the GG Swing Method, comprised of George Gankas golf drills and videos, continue to credit this system with delivering quick and measurable improvements to their game.

Gankas understands the huge role dynamic loft plays in maintaining the correct level of active loft, as well as delivering the desired amount of distance to any shot taken on the course or at the driving range.

Dynamic loft, delivered during the point of impact with the golf ball, has a great deal of influence over the angle of the ball in flight.

Too much or too little dynamic loft in your golf swing can cause the ball to travel lower or higher than intended, so experimenting and practicing your shots while being mindful of your level of loft continues to be one of the most important things that a golfer can do to improve their success on the course.

Our level of dynamic loft serves as one of the key performance indicators as to how deep our ball will travel down course but also has a role in our short game performance as well.

Your putting stroke also has the capacity to influence the loft found on the face of your putter, which has a huge affect on how the ball will roll towards the hole.

Players may find it difficult to control the trajectory of their shots, as the amount of power being delivered into the ball and the spin rate become a dilemma of balance and composition for many golfers.

Still, many players who are able to tackle their lingering issues with loft as being a turning point in the process of becoming a well rounded golfer, expediting the learning process tremendously.

The majority of these golfers disregard the manufacturer assigned dynamic loft level found on golf clubs and instead make such determinations through their swing training, understanding that the dynamic motion created during all golf swings will likely nullify such measurements at impact.

Once golfers come to the realization that each club they carry must have a uniquely developed swing sequence, the sooner they’ll realize that mastering their dynamic loft will advance such pursuits in their training and development as a player.

Gankas reminds players, as with most elements of golf, there cannot be a one size fits all solution for developing the ideal dynamic loft for each of your clubs.

Each players will deliver loft to their golf clubs differently, so one cannot simply replicate a swing drill in order to establish the perfect amount of dynamic loft in each of their swings.

Establishing the correct active loft in your swing, while delivering the perfect amount of dynamic loft at impact will give players more control over the distances achieved during each of their shots.
