Dunlop 13 Driver - Beware

49 posts in this topic

My cousin (not legally but we are basically family) just dropped a few bucks on the new Dunlop 13 C- driver.  He is a hellova golfer but he gets scammed real eazy.  He was a Big-Oh the other day and pick up a couple wide-body Appalachian Ridge tires for his Geep and they offered to throw in the new Dunlop 13 C-, no strings attached.  He took the bait (yeah, I know), but when he went to the range he instantly lost about 1-2 yards of his tee shot.  Needless to say, he was pissed out of his mind and tried to return it.  But they would take it back since it was free and because they said they didn't have enough room for it.  So he is probably going to pop it up on ebay, so beware, cause it would most likely reduce your total driving statistic.

1 or 2 yards?    From a 250+ yard tee shot.  That's impossible to even measure that closely.  And he got it free from Big O with a purchase of Dunlop tires, but he still wanted to return it??

I think you have the right idea Meenman.

If he is that pissed about it, I suppose I could help out. I think I can find some room to store it. If you pay me twenty dollars, I will take it off his hands.

LOL!

So the Big O guys wouldn't take back the free driver because they didn't have enough room? How big is this driver?

Personally never been that upset with something given to me for absolutely nothing.

I was puzzling over what this meant - how is someone your cousin but not legally? I've heard the saying, "He's like a brother to me"... is it like that only not quite as good?

So then I went to work on figuring out why a tire store is giving away golf equipment.  Didn't get very far.

So then I tried to figure out how you reconcile "dropped a few bucks" on a driver with "they offered to throw it in, no strings attached".

It was at that point I realized I should probably get back to my cat herding since that would be easier than deciphering this post.

Yeah, it drives me absolutely crazy when my drive goes 269 instead of the normal 270 I'm used to.

I can't be reasoned with when something I get for free only performs 99.7% as well as something else I paid full value for! I mean is this 'Merica or what? Some kind of communist scheme if you ask me!

As for Dunlop sports gear it is shit. Mike Ashley's Sport Direct chain have bought up a load of formerly reputable brands and taken them to the bottom end of quality - Slazenger, Dunlop, Lonsdale and various others - including Newcastle United.

He's done some good deals though. Westwood and Clarke wore the brand for free but get a huge bonus if they win a Major, good for Clarke not so much for Westwood.

    • My Swing (b101)
      Not much of an update, as due to a lot of work in the run up to exams, I haven't actually hit the range much recently. I've also quite enjoyed taking a break from endless swing thoughts and just getting things feeling a bit more natural. The flight is now high, with a 7 iron flight looking more like what my pitching wedge used to look like. The shape is now usually right to left with the bad miss still when I get the face closed at impact. Distance is definitely better, too, with a 7 iron now carrying around 170 on a good hit - at least 10/15 yards longer than with that shorter swing I had around the turn of the year. I'm going to get on the range a bit more in the next few months and will start uploading some footage, but things are looking and feeling pretty good.

      Stupid easy to hit, too.

      I find it becoming a strange discussion. My 2c. Stick with your evolved instructor. Or respect the given instructions. And deal with it. Use what you think is helpfull. Otherwise I do not understand why you would seek advise in this thread. I might be wrong but to me it seems you do not trust your evolved coach and or the given opinions.    To me, it presents an insight how top coaches are looking at your swing.

      Handicap card completed - Off a 23 which is a bit higher than I'd like, Going to play in my first comp next month hopefully. Still working on those blow up holes. Shot an 86 yesterday which is my best round in a long time! 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      @iacas Not sure why you feel the need to try and make people feel stupid? What's the attitude all about?

      Because you seem to think that nobody else has any valid arguments, I felt compelled to contact a friend of mine and ask him about the subject. He has won twice on the MacKenzie Tour, 4 times on the Gateway Tour and played in the US Open in 2010 at Pebble Beach. I Facebooked him a few days ago and heard back from him today. He said that his Tour buddies of that calibre typically shoot in the mid 60's (or lower) if they play an "average" course for a Pro-Am or a sponsor's event or for a casual round. He added that he played a municipal course in Phoenix last week (he didn't say which one) and shot -8 without ever having seen the course before. And he was never able to make it through the final stage of Q-School so he self-admittedly doesn't have the skillset of the PGA guys. I still say the average Tour player would shoot in the low 60's at my course. Here's the scorecard of it, and Nick Taylor's scores from the 2006 Provincial Tournament. He was only a junior at the time and hadn't played for the University of Washington yet. Safe to say his handicap has improved a little bit since then  and he still shot 68 twice and under difficult tournament conditions! No way he'd shoot that now.
