Ping K15 DENTED !

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I bought a second hand Ping K15 on ebay knowing it was damaged, I got it very cheap (£35) it has a small dent in the side but does not have any marks on the face or any problems with the shaft. I've hit over 100 practice balls down the driving range and not sure if the dent is affecting the playability of the driver,
I'm fairy new to golf and bought the driver with a stiff shaft as I believe I have a fast swing, I am 6FT 6IN and quite a big lump so have lots of power, now I would say 80% of my tee shots are straight but the distance is a worry, it seems I am only hitting 230yds at a push ?
I am not sure if the dent is affecting the distance but I feel I am striking the ball off the tee sweetly (At the driving range I line the driver up so the head is not resting on the ground but is hovering about 1inch from the ground, when I follow through I hit the ball without the driver touching the ground and it makes that classic tin noise)
The Driver has a loft of 10.5 I would say that most of the tee shots seem too high and am thinking this could be the problem with the lack of difference.
Anyone own a K15 that can advise on different lofts or any advise please.

Thanks.

I doubt if the dent is an issue ... only in your mind if you allow it. It just hurts resale.

 

A poor fit with loft or shaft could be the issue; it could be the lack of efficiency of your swing, or speed -- you assume you're fast because you're a big guy - but one doesn't know until they have some stats and video.

I notice that I hit short at the range due to the balls. I tend to hit about 220 at the range and on the course, when I hit straight I have hit around 250 a few times. The balls at the range I go to have some use n them, as I assume most public ranges have.
