How Smash Factor relates to distance
Hitting long shots requires a high energy transfer from golfer to club to ball, and Smash Factor is a measure of this energy transfer.
Smash Factor (SF) is your ball speed divided by your clubhead speed and tells you how much energy is being transferred from the club to the ball at impact. For maximum distance on your Driver shots you’re looking to get a SF as close to 1.5 as possible. On Iron and Wedge shots SF will be a bit lower.
It’s our mission to make sure you’re swinging the club as well as possible. While the right equipment fitted for you is seriously important, it won’t count as much as when you’re swinging to your full potential. Come speak to us about your game.
