Dent on My Driver?

29 posts in this topic

Ok well I just bought a Nike Sumo 5900 so me and a buddy went to the driving range to hit some balls and halfway through he asked to use my driver so let him being the good friend I am..Well when He covered and put it back in my bag and that was that. Well last nite i noticed i have dent on the bottom of my driver and white paint in the dent from a obvious topped golf ball...Now I just went in my back yard and hit like 4 balls into the wood just seeing how the driver will react..but unfortunatly i can only follow it for about 100 yards..My question is will this affect the playablilty of the driver, how about the distance? It seemed to sound different too! Now mind you I only hit it a few times yesterday so this "different sound" could be in my head but I am just tryin to check all my bases? Any help, tips and/or advice will be great. This might be a dumb question but I am new to golf (only a year under my belt) so please help a newbie out?!

I would be my guess if the dent isnt on the face or the leading edge of the club it shouldnt really make a difference. Could be just cosmetic.

I also think It would not make any difference (for what I understand in your explanation). If you post some pics maybe we will be able to give you a better feedback.

And first lesson If you borrow your club ALWAYS check it before you put it back in the bag. You know just in case... :)

I have a driver with a dent on the bottom too, but it wasnt from a topped ball. It was from an "accident" with an 8 iron. It didnt seem to affect the performance at all. Seeing as how you did just buy the driver though you might want to try and give Nike customer service a call and ask them what your options are. Chances are they may just send you a new one.

well I called NIKE but no luck, figured I would get that but hey worth a shot. I was told though it shouldnt affect the play so thats good. Any other opnions are appreciated though. Maybe similiar cases with anyone and how it affected there club? or is there anyway to maybe get the dent out?

Call your friend and let him know he just won a Nike Sumo 5900 for the exact price you paid. And go buy you a new one.

I don't see how topping a golf ball could cause that dent.

I had that same dent on my previous driver. Was caused by topping the ball (can't explain it but that's what caused it). It didn't effect the performance of the club any......not that I could see.

I have the exact same dent in the exact same place on the exact same driver and it hasn't affected a thing. I actually have 2 dents there and a small crack forming.

This doesn't sound good. I'd be leary of any cracks forming...imagine being in midswing and losing the head along the swing path....someone could be hurt.

I've never heard of this happening before and now three cases all with the same club?????!!!!!! Doesn't sound encouraging. Sorry to hear that Nike didn't cover it....I guess it was a coin toss on that.

I don't think where the crack is would cause anything to fly off. Here's a pic of mine.

IMO there's no way that could happen from topping a ball. It was smashed by something or smashed on something.

Nope. I came down so steep on it I drove the tee into the turf, lol. I don't do that anymore, that's for sure.
