19 degree 904F with closed face?


benditty

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else own a 19 degree Titleist 904F? If so, is its face considerably more closed than other Titleist fairway woods you've seen? I ordered one several weeks ago and it seems to have an incredibly closed face. I'm trying to determine if this is how it was intended to be built or if it is a manufacturing defect. I intend to take it back to the retailer and get their opinion. If it's a manufacturing defect I imagine they'll exchange it, but if it isn't is there a way to bend a fairway wood to a square position?

Hi, I am not sure about your face being closed, mine kind of looks like it is, so I attached a couple of pics for you. I took them with the straight lines of my tile in the background.

 

Now, As you can see my club is really clean, I have only used it twice, I still have the 980Fs in my bag. I know everyone thinks these 904's are great, but honestly I hit the 980's so much better, they are way more forgiving for me.

 

I know this is weird, I have played some hard to hit clubs over the last 25 years, but the 904 has been honestly the hardest club ever. Way harder than the old PT's

 

Hope the pics help!

That's strange, I find the 904Fs to be the easiest FWs Titleist has had in a while. But I can see where you are coming from. When you get used to a certain type of club, anything else just doesn't fit.

 

BTW, let me know when you want to sell the 904F 19, I'll give you $125 for it.

If you look at the alignment aid, it is also "closed" in the picture but parallel to the face. Therefore, align with the aid and you'll be perfectly square.

If you go to http://titleist.com/golfclubs/fairways/904f.asp, they even admit the faces on the 904 are closed. It says something like closed face ensures high inital launch and optimal ball flight. I had a 15* 904F and it was easy to hit but all it would hit was right to left shots. I much prefer the Nike T60.

What are you smoking? :)

 

The improved CG location slightly decreases dynamic face closure enhancing the high initial launch angle and helping produce optimum ball flight.

 

If anything, it's saying the face is more open at impact.
