Re: Can you change a driver loftSome fairway metal clubs and metal drivers - stainless steel ones - can be altered, by bending, for loft. I think some clubs, OEM and component ones, have adjustable or replaceable hosels that can alter lie angle, face angle, and possibly loft.
But if you're talking about trying to bend a titanium driver, I don't think you'll have much luck doing it, or getting someone to even try.
My thought was that it's fairly difficult to do if not impossible with titanium, as the metal is hard and has a tendency to break rather than bend under the forces needed to alter loft. But I've read recently about some tour pro saying he had a driver "bent strong."
Maybe I read it wrong and he was referring to a steel 3 wood, or maybe he just has a special, strong lofted one made for him and didn't have one "bent."
If you want a stronger lofted club when you're buying new, by the way, you can always ask the store to measure the loft on several drivers and pick the one that's the strongest. Quality control is great with pro-line OEM clubs, but there is still some variation, and it's possible that if you measured 10 identical copies of any model of "9 degree" driver in a store, you'd probably find one that was a degree stronger than the others.
However, you might also find that those 9-degree drivers are actually all 11 degree drivers...this was more common years ago than today maybe, but I've heard that the stamped loft on a driver ain't always the real loft.
