Small dent on bottom of driver head....

8 posts in this topic

I was at the golf shop and picked up a Nike Sumo for $19. The shaft looked fine, and the head has a very clean top and face... After I got home I saw a small dent on the bottom of the head as though someone got ticked and slammed it to the ground. It's not big, but it's there....

Question : Will this have any effect on playability (loft, lie, etc..)

It was cheap, and I was bored, so I bought it.

Interestingly, I googled dent on bottom of driver head and I got a lot of results for the same dent, in the same driver.

Everyone says to play the club, but this tells me that the sumo driver is a POS.

I doubt this will effect the performance of my driver.... so I am changing my question to this.

Will this dent effect the performance of when I slam the head into the ground after I hit the ball into the lake? I'm afraid the aerodynamics are thrown off and as I grab the club to do a full force slam, that those small dents will decrease the amount of air flow, thus reducing the odds of burying my driver head 5" into the tee box.

I guess the only way to tell it to go in the front yard and practice.

Bored... Are you kidding me?

You're in OH, so you're getting similar weather... I'm about to go insane!

Yeah, we didn't get the snow they predicted, but my thermometer on my front porch says -4*F. :-( If you go out and pound it on the ground now, it may shatter into tiny little pieces.

Actually the dents should act much like the dimples on a golf ball and produce better aerodynamic air flow thus increasing head speed... You may improve the clubs performance by giving it a few more "love taps"! And I'm feeling your weather related pain... Mid Missouri here and it's -7 with a 25 below wind chill and 8 inches of blowing drifting snow. But since it's Missouri and subject to insane changes in the weather, I was in my back yard hitting golf balls just this past Wednesday and could be doing the same by this time next week! Keeping my fingers crossed!

It shouldn't effect playability.  I googled it as well and that does seem to be a common problem with the Sumo drivers, one guy said he put a dent in it by topping a tee shot :whistle:

    • A figment of Bill Kristol's imagination.
    • LOL, I had to read it a bunch of times too.  Still not 100% but ... I think the confusion was brought in by their effort to minimize the severity of the "issue."  They could have just said "an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from working," but I assume that they wanted to stress that the issue is minor and they're not always not working, only temporarily.   Funny thing is once they added to the "temporarily" they could have dumped the "not" - it means basically the same thing with or without the "not."
    • Entered the last week of the regular season on Monday.  It was also Senior Night.  Typically, it is a great night for us and did end good.  However, it was a rough start.  One of my seniors was pulled over driving to our course and had 3 other players in her car.  While she was given a warning, they got to our course late and so, were rushed to get dressed and on the course.  Naturally, she was shaken up.  My #1 was again medalist but we shot the worst score we have shot on they year.  We shot a 215 and that is terrible.  We lost to both opponents we played that night and have beaten both by 20 this year.  Today was our conference tournament.  It is held at a very tough course for girls, has a lot of sand and water and trees.  My #4 who is really my #3 but I defer to an older girl at #3 could not play since she was rushed to the emergency room.  She is very sick.  Anyway, my #1 shot a 77 on a windy cold day and was Medalist.  She out shot the next competitor by 11 strokes.  Her round was one of the most amazing rounds I've seen.  Our conference is very competitive in girl's golf and yet, the #1s from all the other teams could not keep up with her.  My #2 was also All Conference.  From there, we were terrible but in line with the other girls.  Still, when you are missing the young lady that has been averaging 94 per 18 holes, you are not going to win.  We didn't.  Regional Tournament next.  It is on our home course BUT we never get to play those holes.  We have 27 Holes and so, never are allowed on the first 18 due to league play.  I am hoping we get to play those holes now in practice since league is over.  Finally, Senior Night is a celebration of our Seniors.  The other girls bought them some very nice gifts.  It was also my birthday.  They got me an extremely nice Triad Golf Jacket.  I needed it today since we were in the mid 60s with a very hard wind.  I am so blessed to get to be their coach. 
    • Wow! Hillary only got 2% on my quiz.  I knew I didnt like her, but I didnt think it was that bad.
    • I tried to find the debate, but all I could find on was some new reality show called "The Biggest Liar", where two people went after each other as hard as they could for 90 minutes.  When it was over, there was no clear winner, and the only loser was the American people.   I took the quiz, I side with Evan McMullin...........who the hell is Evan McMullin?????
