Default Mathews Drenalin and Center Shot

I just had a Ripcord put on my 2007 Drenalin. I thought I would check the center shot and when I checked the alignment of the arrow as compared to the string, the arrow seems to be going slightly out away from the bow. It looks like I can't get the rest in close enough to get the center shot lined up or it will hit the riser when it drops. Am I missing something here, or has anyone observed this too? Should I just let the paper tuning/ walk back tuning decide the adjustment? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

It was put on for me by my pro shop. Will probably go back and have him check it but I wanted to see if I was just lost or missing something and could fix it myself before I bothered him again, he is a great guy to have work on your bow, and as such is very busy.

he's only off 1/16th

copied from that link:

How do I get center shot on my Mathews bow? Do I use a center-shot tool?
We recommend measuring off the side of the riser at the attachment hole to the center of the arrow shaft approximately 13/16 of an inch. Adjust the rest as needed for proper arrow flight. A center-shot tool is not needed.

OOPS! Thought it said 1 3/16, not 13/16!
