The drivers in the Titleist Speed Project family feature a whole manner of adjustability, including Titleist's first dalliance with the world of adjustable weights.
There are four drivers in the line up - TS1, TS2, TS3, and TS4 - and they all feature Titleist's Sure-Fit hosel system which allows you to adjust the loft and lie angle to achieve your desired launch, spin and flight conditions.
This article takes you through the process and various settings available to you through the Sure-Fit hosel.
Before you start
Before you start tinkering with your driver, let's mention some things you won't be adjusting - the swing weight in the sole. It can be loosened easily and replaced by different weights but is used for swing weighting during the custom fitting process. The weight in your driver was put here by the Titleist engineers, and you should trust their opinion.
So what can you adjust?
When you buy your Titleist TS driver, it will come with a simple adjustment wrench which will allow you to remove the head to add or reduce loft and give the driver a draw or fade bias.
Let's start with the basics and look at the opening and locking mechanisms of the screws. To open or loosen any screw in your driver, place the wrench into the top of the screw and turn anti-clockwise and to tighten a screw you turn it clockwise. When tightened sufficiently, there will be an audible 'CLICK' to let you know the sleeve is safely locked in place and to avoid over-tightening.
When the shaft screw is fully open, the head can be easily removed from the shaft revealing the two cogs which allow for the adjustment. The top ring has letters, and the bottom ring has numbers - all of which correspond to settings on the Titleist SureFit chart.
There are 16 different settings which can raise loft up to 1.5-degrees or lower it by 0.75-degrees, while also making the lie up to 1.5-degrees more upright or 0.75-degrees flatter. When the driver leaves the factory, it's set to the standard loft and lie - position A1.
How does it work - working examples
Titleist Sure-Fit chart: Right-handed
Let's say you're happy with the standard loft, but want to make the club draw the ball the most. From the chart, you can see you need to find position A2.
If you wanted to hit the ball as high as possible and add as much draw as possible, you'd need to move it to position A3.
If you wanted to shape the ball the other way (with a fade bias) is find setting B1.
For max loft and max fade, it's B4, and less loft with a fade is C1.
In either instance, swivel the rings and reattach to the head with the dot lined up with your desired setting.
As you can see, once you have the SureFit chart and what you want to see from your ball flight, it's simple to achieve.
What about Lefties?
If you're lefthanded there the chart is slightly different, so we've put the video below together - and the specific left-handed settings map is below. You can read the full guide here.
Do you have a TS3?
If you own a Titleist TS3 driver, that one is slightly different from these as it also has an adjustable weight cartridge in the head, so we have a separate video below and a full guide explaining how to adjust that here.
When can you adjust your driver?
It is very important to remember that you can adjust your driver on the range or at any time before or after your round, just not during it!
