How adjustable drivers actually work. Everyone should be required to watch this to be allowed to post on this site. Thanks Tom Wishon

Really? People cant see if a 460 driver face is square? What do they do with a wedge?

Forget the wedges, numerous studies have shown that most average golfers can't really see if their putter is square and pointed in the right direction.
Were not talking putting though. I find it hard to believe they are any better off just trusting the clubs lie for squareness. Theyve still got to aim it. Maybe im missing something.

We are talking about the ability of the player to point the club face in a particular direction and know what direction it's really pointing.

But the key isn't really where it's pointing at set-up.   It only matters where it's pointing at impact and the two are rarely the same.  The only thing that's important is how consistent they are at where it might point at setup.   And there is very little to indicate one method is any more or less consistent then any other.

As always, thanks, Tom. I hadn't watched this because I was playing a non-adjustable driver when you created it. Now that I picked an adjustable model up, I'm glad I gave it a view.

when I adjust the loft angle the lettering on the club moves.  I then Have the club regripped with lettering centered to a square club face.  dosen't this resolve the square face issue?   On regular shots don'rt we square the face to the target line anyway?
