STILL The Facts About Adjustable Hosel Drivers
And Your Golf Game! Loyal readers may remember my post of two weeks ago – where I talked about the dramatic influence a closed face angle driver had on a golfer’s driving performance. This caused me to remember that I did some previous posts about Adjustable Hosel Drivers – and the things golfers need to know to help them play their best.
I was surprised to find that my first Adjustable Hosel Driver post was in 2013 – wow, 4 years ago! And in 2014, I did a Tom Wishon podcast interview about this topic. The two links provided below were from these two previous posts…
I will not summarize everything again from these two links – but a few highlights are worthy of noting, and remembering!
- For almost all adjustable hosel driver designs (Tailor-made R1 being the exception) it is not possible to independently set the loft and face angle to values to help you optimize distance AND shot dispersion.
- You can create different driver lofts with different adjustable hosel settings – IF you square the face at address – which means that you lose the potential value of face angle as a fitting variable when you do this.
- Finally, many of the hosel settings for adjustable hosel drivers result – when you allow the club to sit on the ground at address – in face angles that are open and often very open to target at address. If your typical shot pattern is a slice, push, or push-slice – this is opposite of what you need to help you hit straighter shots. And the vast majority of golfers slice, push, or push-slice their drivers.
If you are truly looking to find ways to optimize your driving performance – and who isn’t! – please take the time to read and digest this report and podcast interview. And remember – Longer AND Straighter is EVEN BETTER!
