The Circle & Its Degrees

The ‘Full Circle’ has 360 degrees. Therefore, in one hour (60 minutes) the ‘Minute Hand’ travels through a ‘Full Circle or 360 Degrees’. (12 o’clock to 6 o’clock to 12 o’clock … 180 x 2 = 360)

If we divide 360 Degrees by 60 Minutes, we get 6 Degrees per Minute. (6 x 60 = 360)

If we expand this ‘Degree-ness’ to include our ‘Clubheads’, our ‘Putter’ will usually have between 2 and 6 degrees of ‘Loft’ … the angle of the Clubface to Mother Earth. The typical Driver has between 8 and 12 degrees. The typical III Wood has 15 degrees. The typical V Wood has 20 degrees. The Typical VII Wood has 25 degrees. (see 5 degree splits) The #SW usually has 56 degrees, the #PW usually has 48 degrees, the #9 Iron – 44 degrees, the #8 Iron – 40 degrees, the #7 Iron – 36 degrees, the #6 Iron – 32 degrees, the #5 Iron – 28 degrees, the #4 Iron – 24 degrees, the #3 Iron – 20 degrees etc. (see 4 degree splits)

Let us further expand this off-line ‘Degree-ness’ to include ‘Clubhead Path’ (Left & Right). (see ‘Inside-Out, Square and Outside-In’. ‘Clubhead Plane’ will soon mean more to you as well. (see ‘The Physics Of Rotation’ and ‘The Geometry Of The Circle’)

The ‘Angle Of Attack’ (AOA) deals with the Up & Down behaviour of the ‘Clubhead Travel’ as compared to the flat and level ‘Mother Earth’. We shall find out even more about the behaviour of our ‘Golf Tools’. All Golf Clubheads ‘Ascend’ in the Back & Up Swing and ‘Descend’ in the Down & Out Swing.

The very small ‘Putter Down Swing Descent’ might achieve about 2 degrees ‘Negative AOA’, while the ‘#SW’ might accomplish up to about 8 degrees ‘Negative AOA depending on our ‘Performance Pre-Selection’ and ‘Set-Up’.

Remember, we must always strive to ‘Set-Up For Success’!
