This is your trajectory control you know a lot of times people hit fairway woods and they come out very flat low like you can see here on number 12 we have a gulley that we need to carry. So if we don't have the proper height it's going to be very difficult for us to play effectively with our fairway wood. So if you look at the back of the fairway wood there's obviously a number and in a particular loft so you want to make sure that the loft correlates with what you need this is a particular 15 degree lofted 3 wood which was going to give me a little bit more height.

Sometimes there are 3 woods that are 12 degrees it come out a bit flatter sometimes or 3 woods that have more like 17 degrees so you need to experiment with your loft remember when you have the wrong loft the ball can come out either too low and not go anywhere or too high and not go anywhere. So you need to maximize the loft by experimenting with the lower loft 3 woods the middle lofted 3 woods and the higher lofted 3 woods in order for you to control trajectory and remember there's a trajectory that's best for each one of you. Mine happens to be 15 with this R.B.Z. so I want to make sure that I always have a rocket ball 3 wood that's 15 degrees and I do that I'm always going to have the optimal trajectory for me to control my golf ball.
