How to Adjust Your GEN4 Driver to Create a Draw Bias

If you’re at the range and you are trying to hit a little bit more of a draw, there are two things you can try by adjusting your GEN4 Driver settings.

First, make sure your club is in the most upright setting. The most upright is going to be the standard or “dot” hosel setting.

Secondly, you can move the heaviest weight into the heel portion of the club. In doing so, you’re going to create a more heel-biased CG, making it easier for the clubhead to rotate and helping you to hit draws more easily.

We’re just going to take out the weight in the heel here. I’m replacing the lighter weight in the back of the driver and then moving the heavier weight into the heel portion of the driver to create maximum draw bias. And there you have it.

What is a Draw Bias?

This weight distribution positions the mass towards the heel of the club head making it easier to square the face at impact and producing a more draw biased shot.

How to Move Weights Around Your PXG Driver.

Step 1. Take the wrench that is included with the purchase of your PXG Driver. (This wrench is used to adjust the hosel setting on our drivers, fairways, and hybrids. It is also used to adjust the weighting on our metal fairways and Battle Ready Putter line.)

Step 2. Select the weight you wish to move, place the wrench tip into the weight and turn the wrench counterclockwise until loose.

Step 3. Replace with the desired weight by placing the weight into the empty port and turning the wrench clockwise until you hear two clicks. Your weight it now secured.

What’s the difference between draw bias and fade bias?

For right-handed players, a draw is a golf shot that moves slightly right-to-left, while a fade is a golf shot that travels slightly left-to-right. The movement of the ball is determined by the spin placed on the ball by the club face being slightly closed (for a draw) or open (for a fade).

Drawing the ball typically produces more distance due to a lower trajectory and more top spin on the ball. A fade tends to land more softly due to a higher ball flight and more backspin.
