What GolfWRXers are saying about having a low trajectory

Published

In our forums, our members have been discussing having a low trajectory and whether it is a problem. WRXer ‘MarkTheSark’ is currently playing “Wilson’s C200 irons with a stiff flex from Ping ISI with a regular flex” and adds that “The balls though, do stop remarkably well surprisingly with these clubs. Obviously, the wind hurts/helps you – and getting over trees can be an issue….”

‘MarkTheSark’ wants to know if there are any other downsides to having a low trajectory, and our members have been sharing their point of view in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • SkiSchoolPro: “For irons, I think the main issues with low ball flight is less stopping power and long irons that don’t carry far enough. If these are not issues for you, there are actually advantages to low ball flight in some conditions.”
  • MtlJeff: “Low ball flight is not great with long irons if you have to fly hazards and hold greens. But that’s been it for me mostly…. I have a low ball flight. With 6 iron and up I don’t find any issues. I don’t see how you could hit a 6 iron or 7 iron too low considering how much those irons spin. Even a lower ball flight should hold greens.”
  • Myherobobhope: “I played moonballs for years… killed me in the wind, and wasn’t ideal… but didn’t have the budget to get new irons (I still don’t, but I didn’t then either)… You can work on path to hit them higher or just play the game you brought. If they are stopping on greens, it sounds like you have enough spin on them… Wind becomes less of a factor, but you’ll have to bend it around trees instead of over them. Hopefully, that isn’t an issue all that often. No shame in playing the clubs you have and making them work… hopefully, it will make you a better golfer when you CAN get the clubs you want, as you will learn how to play the shots you can hit instead of trying to hit shots you can’t hit (like over trees).”
  • trilerian: “When I got fitted for my irons a few years back, different shafts definitely made a difference in ball apex. With stiff flex shafts, I was apexing 70-75’. With regular shafts, my apex was about 100’. With KBS Tour V regular, apex was at 90’. Those are what we settled on. Swing speed with a 7i is 83-85 mph and spin right around 6200. All this said I like a higher ball flight. When you hear the spin of the golf ball followed by a towering flight, you know it was a good shot well before it landed.”
