Callaway Customer Servive

7 posts in this topic

After a custom fitting, I learned that my clubs/shafts were good, but should be bent 2* flat. I have 2009 Callaway Razr X's (I'm guessing on the year, but know I'm very close). After reading stuff online, I found that most fitters don't like bending these clubs because they are difficult to bend without breaking them. That realization got me into looking into knew clubs and the excitement of potentially getting new sticks took over. Man, I love those Apex irons!! Just to check it out, I called Callaway. I was ultra impressed with what I learned. If I send my clubs to them (which I did today), they would bend them and ship them back - FREE OF CHARGE! I couldn't believe it. All I am paying is the $34 to Fed Ex the clubs to them. Maybe all manufacturers do this for free? I don't know, but Callaway definitely earned a bunch of customer appreciation points from me! If you have clubs and shafts that fit you well, but the lie angle is off, check with the club manufacturer. It might be really cheap to get the change made.

To my knowledge, no

PING & Adams have in the past. $34 FedEx from where to where? Sounds pretty steep to me. FedEx Ground?

I just went to my town's FedEx store. They are shipping from Central Indiana to California. I didn't even think about checking other places as I had NO idea what the cost would be and $34 seemed reasonable. I guess I'll check around if I ever have to do something like that again...

Reason I ask is that I ONLY use FedEx Ground to ship irons and it's never more than $15-$17 from here (Ohio) to anywhere in the country. (lower 48) They're the cheapest for shipping iron sets and that price sounds double.

I thought I'd provide one last update for this...

I received my clubs back today and the lie angles are much better.  To my surprise, they also regripped the clubs.  I had Winn grips on them before that were right at a year old.  The grips they put on were the exact same grips as I had before.  So, when I regrip this year, I'll just have to do my driver, 3 wood, 3hybrid, SW, and LW.

From what I can tell online, Callaway owns Winn.  I wonder if they would have regripped the clubs if I would have had a different brand grip on them?

    • It's simple, really, if you want the ball to roll out more, play a less lofted club.  It's not unreasonable to use a 6 or 7 iron, if the greens are slow enough that it works.  On the other hand, if you're getting good results the way you're doing it, not much reason to change. It's good to have more shots in your repertoire, so it might be a good shot to learn, even if you don't use it much.  
    • I don't think my golf budget will allow me to play #2, though 
    • Married for 32 years. But my wife plays Saturday and Sunday too, and ladies night is Wednesday, she sometimes plays 18 before that,  the only time I'm there on my own is Friday. Some guys hate that their wife plays, but I love it.  Did I mention, we spent two weeks in Ireland recently, played 8 rounds of golf.
    • I've seen several videos and read several articles of instructions (and yes, even watched the instruction on the golf channel) for chipping and there is this pretty well known rule of flying the ball about 1/3 and letting it roll the remaining 2/3 (I may have those backwards).  So my question is actually not about that. My question is that for many, many rounds now I cannot seem to get the ball to roll out at all. I have to fly the ball at LEAST 80% and might get 10% roll (leaving 10% putt). Granted, this is with my 55 SW. But even if I play the ball on my back foot, feet very close together, and a good amount of forward shaft lean (and even flopping the ball) the freaking ball doesn't roll. It there a smoking gun for this type of problem? Is my angle at impact or some swing mechanism generating a ton of spin that is causing the ball to stop on a dime? Or fly too high? Alternatively, my approach shots are almost always < 12-inches from my ball mark. This can be a 4-i down to a SW. I typically can't see the ball land because my eyesight isn't stellar, so I don't know if it's hopping forward and spinning back or not. But I'm really thinking not. Not sure if one has to do with the other. Now, the courses I play on are pretty darn soft and slow... so maybe that's just how these types of greens play? You just never see that on the PGA tour. 
    • So, I haven't done any real practice since May and got to the range today.   I've got a new driver last week and wanted to practice with it since I hit it really well this weekend.   I've always been inconsistent with my 3W & 5W and this weekend really got me because they cost me some strokes.  After watching a few videos from Mark Crossfield and the Me and My Golf guys, I've concluded that the way to work on getting consistent contact is to make sure I get my weight forward so as to avoid laying back and topping the ball. In both instances I've found that on the downswing if I focus on getting the instep of my back foot towards the ground rather than turning my leg and getting on my toes (which feels more natural) that I make better contact more consistently. As per @mvmac's advice from a while ago, to avoid hooking the ball, I also focus on feeling as though I'm hitting to the right at impact.   So, in these vidoes I'm doing these three things: Getting weight forward Pushing my instep to the ground Swinging towards the right. I know I cross the line at the top which I didn't realize but any thoughts would be appreciated.
