One key fitting parameter to matching
a driver to your swing is the amount of
backspin you’ll produce. Getting it right can
help you outdistance the big boys. Too much
or too little spin can leave you with a much
longer second shot. Switching lofts within a
model is a quick way to affect your outcome.
