Does SureFit hosel mechanically change face angle (open/close)?

  1. Hello folks, just had a quick question and thought this might be a good place to ask:

    The type of miss I always struggle with is a power slice off of my driver and the GC monitors tell me that the main culprit is an open clubface at impact (48 degrees open). Other swing variables such as club path, attack angle, strike locations are all within normal range and pretty consistent. I'm seeing these slices that fly 40+ yards off to my right probably 80% of the time. Needless to say, I had to pull my driver out of my bag and am looking for a bit of hard help with closing my clubface at impact in my next one.

    I understand that SureFit works by changing the loft/lie angle, but can it also mechanically close the face angle like the way TM's sleeves are advertised?

    Thank you.

    Yes but the difference in settings is only 2 degrees total. If swing path on the monitor says you are coming in square but you are 48 degrees open, sounds like you may be gripping the club way too weak and so when you swing down properly, the face is way open. I would get a pro to take a look. You need more than a hosel adjustment and even more than adjusting the weight to a draw bias (if you have a TS3) to get the kind of correction. Hope you get it sorted out and back to hitting them down the middle.
  3. Thank you for the reply Dale, what I meant to say was 4 to 8 degrees, not 48 degrees (typo).

    I usually have an in-to-out (2 to 4 degrees) swing path so add to that the 8 degrees of open clubface at impact, and you kind of get the picture.

    Seeing as how the only swing variable that needs immediate fixing is the face angle at impact, I thought the easiest solution would be to just get a driver with an already closed clubface or capable of mechanically closing it with an adjustable hosel.

  4. 48* is way open. I hope you meant 4.8* - even that will cook up a decent slice. If you have a hard time squaring it up, check you grip, weight transfer (full follow through to your left side after impact) club path is really important, if you are out to in with even a slightly open face you will increase you slice quite a bit.
