Broken Driver, again!

UGH!!! So, earlier this summer I had noticed that my driver, Ping G30 LS TEC, had a crack on the face, toe side.  The biggest thing I noticed was the sound.  It seemed really dead.  So I sent it in and picked a new G30 LS TEC off the rack.  Same shaft, same driver.  But, it felt better as in the weight throughout the shaft felt heavier in my hand than towards the head of the driver.  I liked it and hit it better immediately and the sound was much better.  THEN, today I hit a few drives with the Callaway Supersoft ball, which I had never used before, and it felt really light/dead coming off the face.  But I thought it might be the ball, because of how soft it was suppose to be.  But when I looked at the face of my driver, just randomly, I saw it! Another freakin' crack!! 3 MONTHS! I had it 3 months and it already got the same crack on the face, toe side.  UGH!  I really had just started to feel super confident with the driver, and now I'll have to find that trust in a new one.  Worse though, is that I have a tournament Monday.  I guess one positive is that this course is on the shorter side and I can definitely still score well using my 3 wood.  But, it's still annoying to have this happen now. I'm definitely still sticking with the Ping drivers.  I'll just have to wait on a new one.

Might be a dumb question, but does Ping replace the driver when this happens?

The first thing I thought of while reading your post was that a damaged driver might be the reason I'm only getting 220 yards of carry. It couldn't be a poor swing.:whistle:

Good luck with the tournament on Monday.

Two cracks in the same place? Sounds like a design flaw to me. Good luck Monday!

Thats the first thought i had yesterday when i saw it.  Im considering asking ping to just upgrade me to the G LS TEC so i can try to avoid this in another several months.
