Ping K15 DENTED !

3 posts in this topic

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.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
