Titleist TSi4 Driver Adjustment Guide + (CHART)

Is the Titleist TSi4 driver adjustable?

Yes, the Titleist TSi4 driver is adjustable. The driver supports two types of adjustments, namely, the SureFit hosel adjustment and the weight adjustment.

The SureFit hosel adjustment promotes a fade or draw through loft and lie angle changes. The weight adjustment sets a fade or draw without making a change to the default shaft settings by changing the weight in the sole.

 

How do I adjust SureFit hosel on my Titleist TSi4 driver?

The SureFit hosel in the Titleist TSi4 driver encompasses a ring and a sleeve that are used for the adjustment. The sleeve is located above the ring. The ring has four numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 marked on it while the sleeve has the letters A, B, C and D on it.

The ring and sleeve work in unison to offer sixteen different combinations of loft and lie angles including the standard setting.

In the standard setting, the A1 position represents the stated loft and lie angle of the driver for right-handed drivers. For left-handed drivers, the D4 position indicates the stated lie angle and loft. Both drivers support increasing the loft and lie angle by 0.75°or 1.5° as well as decreasing them by 0.75°.

The following steps guide you on how to do the ring and sleeve adjustment on the SureFit hosel in your right-handed Titleist TSi4 driver using the wrench that came along with it.

  1. Insert the Titleist wrench into the screw positioned behind the clubhead.
  2. Turn the wrench towards your right or in the anticlockwise direction to loosen the screw as much as possible.
  3. Take off or release the clubhead from above the shaft.
  4. Chose any of the 15 setting combinations based on what works best for you.
  5. Reseat the clubhead over the club shaft above the ring and sleeve setup.
  6. Align the white dot mark on the clubhead with the setting chosen in Step 4.
  7. Lock the clubhead in place by turning the wrench again to your left or in the clockwise direction.
  8. End the turning action as soon as you hear an audible click sound. You may damage your driver if you continue to turn after this point.

 

List of TSi4 Driver Settings

  • A2:  Retains the stated loft but increase the standard loft angle by 1.5°, making it more upright.
  • A3: Increases both the stated loft and the standard loft angle by 1.5°, making the lie angle more upright.
  • A4: Increases the stated loft by 1.5°but retain the standard loft angle by 1.5°.
  • B1: Makes no change to the stated loft but lower the standard lie angle by 0.75°, making it flatter.
  • B2: Does not change the stated loft but raises the standard lie angle by 0.75°, making it slightly more upright.
  • B3: Raises the stated loft by 1.5° and increase the standard lie angle by 0.75°, resulting in it being a little upright.
  • B4: Increases the stated loft by 1.5° but reduce the standard lie angle by 0.75°, making it a little flatter.
  • C1: Lowers both the stated loft and the standard lie angle by 0.75°, resulting in a flat lie.
  • C2: Reduces the stated loft by 0.75° but increment the standard lie angle by 0.75°, producing an upright lie.
  • C3: Increases both the stated loft and the standard lie angle by 0.75°, causing a slightly flat lie.
  • C4: Raises the stated loft by 0.75° but decrease the standard loft angle by 0.75°, resulting in a little flatter lie.
  • D1: Decreases the stated loft by 0.75° but cause no change to the standard lie angle.
  • D2: Lowers the stated loft by 0.75° but result in the standard lie angle being increased by 1.5°, causing it to be more upright.
  • D3: Increases the stated loft by 0.75° but raise the standard loft angle by 1.5°, making it more upright.
  • D4: Raises the stated loft by 0.75°but have no impact on the lie angle.

 

Golfers tend to record more spin and high launch when the stated loft is increased. However, this setting makes them have to compromise on their distance. The draw is maximum when the driver is set to the A3 position with both the loft and lie angle at their maximum values.

On the other hand, decreasing the loft allows them to gain extra distance but the ball spin is less and the launch is lower. This results in a fade with the maximum fade being achieved in the C1 position with the loft as well as lie angle at their minimum values.

When the lie angle is increased to more than the standard value, the TSi4 driver becomes more upright.

Players prefer this setting to avoid repeated slices in the game. The clubface gets directed to the left side of the target with the upright setting. The swings are also often less consistent and less powerful.

On the flip side, setting the driver upright promotes hooks as the heel tends to get positioned at a lower level than the toe. The toe fails to make contact with the ground at the time of impact.

When the lie angle is lesser than the standard value, the TSi4 driver tends to become flat.  The shots get directed to the right. The heel will not make any contact with the ground during impact.

For any upright or flat lie angle setting, the ball will initially travel off the target line by a few yards.

The above settings are slightly different for a left-handed driver that has D4 as the default settings. The different setting options for this driver are explained in the table below.

The Titlist TSi4 right-handed driver comes in three stated loft options of 8°, 9° and 10°. The left-handed version is available with just one loft option of 9°. Both drivers feature the same standard lie angle of 58.5°. The two drivers support 16 loft and lie angle combinations including their default settings.

It’s worth keeping in mind that the standard setting is different for both drivers. This setting is A1 for the right-handed driver whereas it is D4 for the left-handed counterpart. The change for both the drivers is with respect to the loft.

Titleist TSi4 driver weight settings adjustment

The Titleist TS4 driver features a head weight adjustability mechanism that allows you to change the weights in increments of two grams ranging from as low as -4g to as high as +4g. In other words, you have weight options extending from 8g to 16g. Most of the weights are available in neutral, Draw and Fade versions.

The weight has a marking on it specifying its type. For instance, a circle marking indicates that the weight is of neutral type with the weight equally balanced at both ends. The + and – markings on the Draw and Fade weights indicate their heavy and light ends respectively.

You can use the same wrench that you used for shaft adjustment to help you with sliding the weight in and out for adjustment. The steps given below tell you how to go about the weight adjustment process.

  1. Put the wrench inside the small screw on the cylinder housing over the sole of the driver. The existing screw weight is located below this housing.
  2. Rotate the wrench properly so that you can get the screw loose.
  3. Slide the existing weight out of the driver.
  4. Insert the new weight of your choice in place of the old weight taking care to ensure that you place the heavy and light sides properly.
  • The heavy or + side towards the toe of the TSi4 driver makes it more inclined for playing a fade.
  • The heavy or + side towards the heel makes the TSi4 better suited for playing a draw.
  1. Put the wrench once again inside the same screw and turn it in the opposite direction until there is a click sound to secure the weight in position.
