Flat or upright?

I noticed that my D913D2 driver is scuffed toward the heel. Should I change the setting from A1 to B2 more upright?

Thanks,

Pete

Just the opposite. If the heel is scraping then the club is set too upright for your swing. You can either set the club to a flatter lie or cut it shorter.

Pete,

With your club scuffing on the heel you would want to turn the club more flat.  If the loft of the club is to the desired trajectory you would want to turn the club from A-1 to B-1.

Adjusting the club to B-1 will bring the toe down slightly, to allow the whole surface of the club to contact the ground at one time. Producing a more consistent ball flight.

Thanks,

Justin,
 
If I cut the shaft down a ½ inch, what weight would I need to install to replace the red dot (9 gm) that’s in the head now?
 
Thanks,

Pete,

Before cutting the shaft down, I would try and play with choking down on the club. Changing the length and weights should be a last ditch effort if you can't make things work with how the club currently is.  Without really seeing your swing and seeing what causes the heel to hit first, it would be hard to recommend everything.  So I would say to choke down on the club, if that doesn't work try and find a Titleist Fitter locally to help you out.

Thanks

I was doing the same thing on my irons(712MB). My Titleist rep changed them to 2 degrees flat and the problem was fixed immediately. I hope this helps...

If you cut your club 1/2" without changing anything else, you will lose 3 swingweight points.  A Winn Excel RF grip gains only 2 swingweight points vs a Lamkin Crossline or Golf Pride Tour Velvet (42g vs 52). 

I have an upright swing with a moderate amount of knee flex.  Titleist AP1 with standard lie angle and -1/2" is a good fit for me but have to use an Excel RF grip to maintain swingweight.  I play my driver at 44.5", my 3 wood at 42" and 7 wood at 41" so they have Dri Tac Lite oversize.
