R5 Dual TP tour head


Recommended Posts

Help please!!!!
Ok, I just bought one of the tour R5 TP heads from Mark at Golf link. I asked him for the highest loft with the most open face. It's actually a 10.5* head but actual loft is 11.2* open .25*.....For you experts, how is this possible to have an open face beyound what the stated loft is??? I fully understand about bending heads open. For an example: If you bend a 10.5* head open 1*, the effective playing loft becomes 9.5*. But in this case it seems it's opposite........Please explain.

Thanks

But this is a tour issued head, so the tolerances for the most part are to spec unless built otherwise. So that 11.2 degree head was probably built that way on purpose being that it is a tour issued golf club. The retail heads, to have 2* of tolerance, but the ones right from the tour factory are much different in terms of tolerance. it's more like .2. 3 * of tolerance from the tour issed heads.

You're over-thinking this.

Head is stamped 10.5. Retail or tour, that number doesn't mean much. Actual, measured loft is 11.2. No problem there, as long as you know it, and it is what you want.

Face angle is .5 open. Again, that is a measured number. The club might have been bent open just a tad (I'd bet that it has), but in any event it is a measured .5 open.

So the effective loft, based on measure numbers, is a little less than 11 degrees. If that is what you want, and it sounds like it is, you can quit worrying about everything else.

Forget about "tolerances" and a lot of other tour-head myths. You know what you have based on the measured numbers. That puts you ahead of 50% of the other people who play with tour drivers, and ahead of 99.9% of the golfing public that buys retail equipment.

If you want a driver with higher effective loft, just grab any old retail TP club, because they mostly all have closed faces, which dramatically increases effective loft...

Hopefully you are right....I want this club to be open at address reguardless of the loft. I picked a higher loft because it never fails.....The seller says it has an open face but to me it's closed. It's happened too many times with me....Anyhow if it is closed a bit, I can still have it bent open a degree or so and still be above 9.5* effective playing loft......Yippie!!!!!!
