How To Adjust The Settings Of Your Driver

In this day and age with the technology available to us, we should never be afraid to tinker with our equipment so long as you know what you’re doing. When it comes to the driver, we have the keys to a pretty high-tech piece of equipment, so it’s important to understand what you’re doing and why you’re doing it.

When it comes to driver weights on the sole of the club, use these to counteract a miss you struggle with. If you tend to hit a slice or a fade, move that weight over to the draw bias to offset that miss.

Similarly, on the shaft, you can adjust the settings to further counteract those ball flight misses, but you can also adjust the loft on your driver. Moving the settings around on the shaft, you can change the loft of the club up to 2° one way or the other to prepare for conditions you may face that day on the course.

As always, be mindful of what you’re doing and feel free to consult with your PGA pro about adjusting driver settings. There are some instances that you club could be fit for you, but in others, adjustments that you can make on your own could provide a level of adjustability to your game that you never knew you could have.
