Adjusting clubs midround

Recommended Posts

I've done a few searches, couldn't find if there was a thread on here. Are you allowed to change lofts/weights (specifically on the driver) during the round? I would imagine you can't.. it's like having several different drivers but that doesn't mean it's against the rules.

Nope. You can adjust prior to the round to suit the course but once in round no changes allowed. As you suspected, it would be the equivalent of carrying an extra couple of clubs.

4-2 . Playing Characteristics Changed And Foreign Material

a . Playing Characteristics Changed

During a stipulated round , the playing characteristics of a club must not be purposely changed by adjustment or by any other means.

Okay, that's what I was looking for, the rule that makes it against the rules. Thanks all

Am I correct in assuming that under the principles of Decision 4-3/12 it would be permissible to adjust an adjustable club in between the end of a regulation round and the start of a playoff?

Also, under the principles of Decision 4-4a/2 it would be permissible to make an adjustment halfway through a 36 hole match?

You waste money buying a gimmicky driver with adjustable weights and loft ... the latter which is totally ridiculous because you can open or close your face at will.
