Question for TT Club Concierge or other members of Team Titleist: After increasing loft on a 917D2 driver (thus closing club face a little bit when clubhead is grounded), should a non-360 degree grip be installed where the center line (or logo) on the grip is slightly left of center of shaft or logo on shaft (looking down the shaft to the clubhead) so that when one grips the club using the center line (or logo) of the grip, the club face will be squared (thus resulting in the increased effective loft) instead of closed (resulting in no increase in effective loft and closed face thus low hooking shots)? Sorry if above is not very clear but tried to describe the question as best I could. Thanks.

I definitely try to use 360's as much as i can on adjustable clubs. I don't want to see where my hands are, i want to rely on feel. That said, as long as you stay away from the "ribbed" grips, just set the club on the ground and set you hands without really looking at the logo. The adjustments you made to add loft should get you where you need to be. If you think you need a reference, use a sharpie to mark a spot that you want align against.
