Just wondering with almost all brands of Drivers being adjustable, is a player allowed to adjust the loft for different holes. I am sure social games would not be a problem, what about in a tournament? Anyone care to share your views?Smile

During a stipulated round, the playing characteristics of a club must not be purposely changed by adjustment or by any other means (see Rule 4-2a)

So no, and its not a personal view. Its the rule.

Then what about, if let say 1 hole we use a fixed 10.5 driver then next hole we use a fixed 9.5 driver?

Round 1 adjust to 9.5, round 2 can adjust to 10.5... but not hole 1 then change at hole 2, etc

What about the new Taylormade SLDR driver? Is adjusting the sliding bar at the bottom of the driver allowed?

If the bar changes the playing characteristics of the club, still no.

Do u know what the sliding bar is for?

During a round you cannot change from first  shot to last shot .  But u can set up while you warm up to correct your tendency although i don't recommend tweaking just before tee off....

sorry bro.

I think that's inaccurate.

this is the story you were referring to I believe

If drop off or damage during the course of play. Still can proceed to use, but must be replaced before start of next round.
