Launch Angle is the angle the ball takes off at relative to the ground.

Launch angle is highly correlated to dynamic loft.

Launch angle will always be a little less than dynamic loft, but will have a similar value.


Along with ball speed, launch angle is a primary component to determining the height and distance of a shot.

Every golfer should be fitted to achieve the optimal balance of launch angle and spin rate based on their club speed and ball speed

centre of gravity movement immediately after leaving the club face
