Good video, and there's no denying that dynamic loft and good contact are the biggest determiners of spin. It's amazing how much TrackMan and other launch monitors have been used to break through some of the myths out there. What's frustrating is how many of those myths are still casually thrown out by golf commentators.http://blog.trackmangolf.com/golf-mythbuster-hitting-more-down-will-generate-more-spin/
Looks to be an older video, but still relevant.
Well, spin loft, but otherwise I agree. There are more factors to hitting the shot you want than any one number.So from this video, I will agree that higher dynamic loft equals more spin...but so does more club head speed and impact location on the face. Also, spin impacts roll out, but so does launch angle, descent angle, and ball speed.
It's a short video, it proves its point, but I don't feel like it plays into the bigger picture of how to hit shots.
