Justin HI was fitted for a Titleist 910 D3. I was playing a Burner Superfast 2.0. I started having a tough time controlling the ball which eventually turned into hitting a high, ballooning fade. Based on my fitting, I was good to go with a Titleist D3 with an 60 RIP shaft. I have it dialed down to a the 'D2' setting to help reel in the fade and lower ball flight. However, I have had this club for a couple of months and my results have really gotten worse. I hit either a giant slice or hard pull left. I'm totally lost at this point. I was consistenly shooting in the high seventies, but now I cannot keep it in the fairway and my scoring stinks. Any advice out there? Is this the wrong club for me? (I'm sure it's not just the club, it's more me, but it cannot be this hard hit a driver) Any suggestions are very much appreciated.
For Ryan C - what would setting to A2 do? It would close the clubface and also make the lie angle slightly more upright than his Burner. Mathematically should equalize the clubs. I used to hit a power fade with a 983K driver. I hit it dead straight with an HT Draw Burner with the same length shaft.
Justin - are you tall or average height? I'm assuming you had a bit of an upright swing with the TM.
I'm 6'1" with WTF of 35.5.
My driver length has always been between 44.5-45" With a G2 and 983K neutral driver, I hit a power fade. I have a Burner HT Draw and hit it dead straight. I know if I get over anxious with the driver I end up with a high fade that ends up at the right edge of the fairway. In 2007 I used a X Speed and a 975D that I hit pretty straight but tended to hit high; I also had a fairly flat swing so I usually pulled it on basd shots. I went to a more upright stance in 2008 and was more consistent but my straight shots were a bit high and I had a power fade with a lower trajectory that got a good 25 yards more.
I also went away from a rotational swing because it gave me back problems.
