Generally speaking, lofts are at their lowest in drivers and fairway woods and gradually increase throughout the irons and finally for the wedges.
Being close to completely flat at 0 degree, the putter has the lowest loft of any club while the loft of a lob wedge will hover above 60 degrees and will usually be the club with the highest loft in a golf bag.
The loft has a direct impact on the height of the ball’s flight path. Indeed, a club with more loft will send a ball higher than a club with less loft, again generally speaking.
As such, depending on the shot at hand, a golfer can decide on the club to pick in accordance to how high the shot needs to travel, on top of the distance it needs to travel.
