Do you ever find that your golf club is just not positioned the right way for you?
When playing golf, you want to be able to have full control over the shape of your shot and the trajectory of your ball. This will allow you to play better and lower your numbers but what can you do to allow you to fine-tune your control?
Well, sometimes you just need to adjust your club. The loft and lie of your club have a huge influence over your shot, so it is important that you adjust your clubs if you need to suit your preferences. So how can you adjust your Callaway Rogue driver?
We are going to look into if you can adjust your Callaway Rogue driver and guide you step by step on how to do that. Then, you can head back out onto the course with confidence.
Is The Callaway Rogue Driver Adjustable?
Yes, it is! All Callaway adjustable drivers have a premium design that offers its owner the option to adjust the loft using the Optifit hosel.
The Optifit hosel is a feature included on all Callaway adjustable drivers, including the Rogue driver. It consists of two cogs called the upper cog and lower cog. These cogs rotate independently to offer eight different combinations in loft and line.
This means that the Callaway Rogue driver is a completely adjustable type of driver that requires no fuss for you to get it into the right position for you.
All you need is the wrench that is already provided by the club. This way, you can even adjust your Callaway Rogue driver while out on the green if you feel you need to so you can golf to the best of your ability.
With eight different possible combinations, let’s get into how you can adjust your Callaway Rogue Driver and how it will affect your golfing.
What The Cogs Mean
You have probably noticed that the Optifit hosel on your Callaway Rogue driver has a bunch of letters and numbers on it. Each letter stands for different things and will adjust your diver differently.
The S stands for the ‘Stated Loft’ that is clearly written on the back of the club head. The Callaway Rogue driver comes in three lofts – 9.5, 10.5, and 13.5. So, depending on which loft you bought, the stated loft will be one of these three options.
Twist the cog to -1 and this means that you are subtracting a degree of law from the stated loft of your driver, yet +1 and +2 mean that you are adding to it.
On the lie settings, N stands for neutral setting and D stands for draw sets. Using these markings, you can clearly adjust each part of your hosel to help adjust your Callaway Rogue Driver with just a few twists of your wrench.
Adjusting Your Callaway Rogue Driver
When it comes to actually adjust your Callaway Rogue driver club, first you need to loosen the screw on your driver’s clubhead using the provided wrench that came with your driver.
Once the screw is loose, you can pull out the club head so you can then adjust the cogs.
The best thing to do now is to first find the loft you want. So, you can turn the cog until the loft you want is lined up between the white hash mark and with the loft written on the back of the club head. This means that you have selected that setting.
So as an example, say you had a 10.5-stated loft Callaway Rogue driver but you wanted to play as a 9.5 instead. Then, you would rotate the loft cog until the -1 was lined up between the white hash mark and the stated loft written on the back of the club head.
Then, when you tighten the clubhead back on, your loft will be measured at 9.5. Then, you can decide on your lie setting. Choose between either a drawn angle or a neutral angle, then rotate the cog until the appropriate letter is also in line with your chosen loft.
With all that done and your lie and loft settings chosen and appropriately adjusted, you can tighten the screw once again using the provided wrench until you hear one or two clicks. That means that your club head is properly tightened onto your club and you are ready to play.
How Adjusting The Loft And Lie Affects Your Golf
Adjusting both the loft and lie of your Callaway Rogue driver helps you deliver the kind of play you want. Both affect your play differently, so let’s take a look at why you might want to adjust your Callaway Rogue driver in the first place.
Golfers who move the loft of their driver are usually changing how far they hit the golf ball. It also affects the accuracy of the drive, plus helps them achieve different launch angles and spin rates.
Increasing the loft on your driver closes the face slightly, meaning that you will also decrease the distance of your shot. On the other hand, reducing the loft opens the face and allows you to shoot your golf ball to further distances.
So, if you find you are consistently undershooting or overshooting, try adjusting the loft of your Callaway Rogue driver to either increase or decrease your distance.
As for the lie of your driver, having an incorrect lie angle affects your ability to hit the golf ball straight. If your lie angle is too flat, you may end up slicing the ball, sending your golf ball off course and to the right.
On the other hand, an upright lie will mean you will hook the golf ball and send it flying in the opposite direction. If you find that your golf balls are not shooting straight, then you may want to adjust your lie angle to help you shoot your golf ball in a straight line.
So now you know why and how to adjust your Callaway Rogue driver! Everyone is different and has a unique technique when it comes to playing golf. So, you may need to adjust your driver accordingly.
It’s very quick and easy to do thanks to the Optifit hosel on the Callaway adjustable clubs. This means that you can even adjust your play while out on the green as long as you keep that wrench at hand.
So all that is left for you to do is decide how exactly you want to adjust your Callaway Rogue driver, pick up that wrench and give it a go! You may greatly improve your play and never look back. Happy golfing!
