Odyssey/Callaway Customer Service

Recommended Posts

I've seen several threads praising their customer service, and just though I'd add another.  Maybe it's for my local golf shop, too.  I bought a "used"  2Ball Fang stroke lab putter on CallawayGolfPreowned.com  (btw- they're pretty darn good too!)  in Jan 2020. The insert on the putter face just came loose last week.  😠  After reading a lot of comments that "if it was over 2 years old, you may be out of luck" I went into my local golf shop and they initially told me the same. Then he said - "We'll try and send it in and see what happens".  They sent out a new OG 2Ball stroke lab putter, basically immediately (7 days!)  I'm happy, and feel almost guilty that I just got a $269 new putter for free to replace the one I bought used for $141. almost 2 1//2 years ago.  Hope I can roll this one as well as the old one!  🤞

That's commendable, but why would they send you a different style putter?  And not make the repair on the old one?  I'm sorry, if I send in my successful Odyssey putter, I want my Odyssey putter back... I don't even want a Scotty Cameron replacement.

The guy at the golf store said that is what they would typically do. I think it is the easier fix for an abundance of customers.  If I don't end up liking this new one, I will sell it and be able to buy a used putter like my old one, and still come out ahead.  From what I have heard the "micro hinge" inserts coming loose on that year of putters was pretty common.  The newer putters have gone back to what look like their original plain white solid insert.

That is so ironic.  One of the micro hinges broke off my Odyssey putter about a year ago and I've been putting very well ever since.  And it's exactly in the spot I make contact with the ball.  I've told a few golf friends and they jokingly say I am cheating.

    • That means if I can talk my friends into getting SS, I can set up a leaderboard. 🙂
    • Day 115.  I only had time today for 20 balls in the same drill as yesterday, but I did find the time.
    • Day 163: Worked mostly on driver today with almost golf balls. Did some work on static change, then a bunch of rehearsals, and then some full swings. Made some improvement on the push start line, and ever so slight drop kick (graze the ground), at least for today. 
    • Maybe I've interpreted this incorrectly, but it just strikes me that the underlying reason is not really about fewer events.  And while the amount of money is obviously so enticing, but even that may not be the main reason for some. Patrick Reed, among others, are talking about how the PGA Tour is not listening to the players and making necessary changes.  I never quite understood exactly what type of major change could be made, other than increased prize money and a different distribution. But with the revelation that LIV golfers are paid a negotiated amount to just show up and play, it seems, at least to me, that the real reason could be wanting a negotiated contract that pays a certain amount regardless of tournament outcomes. It may be that desire to be paid like a baseball player, just as an example, who shows up each game, goes about his business, maybe batting .300, hitting 30 HRs while his team wallows outside of the playoffs and he collects millions.  Regardless of the stark differences in available money between the PGA and MLB, it sure seems like that is really the life these golfers want.  And it seems that is what LIV is offering, or maybe I should say over offering. While I may not agree with what LIV is doing, I do understand the appeal of a contract over time; especially as one is getting past their prime.  It can't be lost on these golfers what some professional athletes are getting paid, with a portion being guaranteed.  A PGA Tour pro who has career earnings of over $25M is probably doing pretty good; especially while maintaining a top 125 in the sport.  But in other sports...
