Damage to Top of My Epic Driver

Recommended Posts

So I was in one of those dual level driving ranges, hitting from the bottom range.  You probably already know how this ends but I started working on my extension in the follow through and sure enough I nailed the heating vent at the top.  This is the damage now on the top of my club.  I can't really tell anything different when swinging it even though it is interesting that the Epiq with the already strange sound now makes a different sound on contact.  Is this something I should be concerned with?

Continental Golf

I can't say if that will affect the club in the future but I dropped the head of my driver on the garage floor while cleaning it and sent it to Continental Golf in North Carolina.   For $60 they did an amazing job with a quick turn around.

The "different sound" would concern me.  That seems to indicate a structural issue to me.  It would certainly be worth a call to the manufacturer to ask someone who actually knows...

Yeah. I think you broke the club.

I tend to agree. Changes in sound, pitch, etc in wood, metal and pretty much any material generally means the integrity has been compromised.

One thing that struck me, what in the hell is a duct or anything doing so close to the area where people are swinging clubs? It just seems counter-intuitive when you build a driving range to have shit in the way, right?

I'm 6'4" and usually check since I have a wide arc, if I was a normal shrimp and hit the ceiling or anything I would be PISSED.

if its not hurting the distance you should be fine, I've bought a brand mew driver and dropped it on the ground and it worked fine. the sound you hear is prob from where air flows on the downswing and sounds weird cause the spot isn't smooth like it was before. thats one reason i don't like hitting in those small pods. rather be in a open space off some grass

    • Short of the year for me yesterday.

      Hit my driver towards a crossbunker on the rigth on a Par 4 after making birdie on the previous hole (Par 5). When I walk to the ball i saw that the ball climbed the rigth wall of the bunker and stayed there, 50cm from the wall. I had 2 options, make my stance on the bunker and hit the ball like a baseball player or stand over the wall and grip the club from the shaft halfway to the head, like it was a club for a 5 year old player. I knew that i was facing to give back the birdie on the previous hole.

      I choose the 2nd option, take an 8 iron from 120 yards and hit it as hard as I could towards the green. The flag was short left, with a bunker guarding the middle/rigth portion of the green. 
      I make a perfect contact and the ball took a really low ball fligth towards the flag. Landed 30 yards on the fairway shorter to the flag and start rolling until I saw it disapear on the cup. Yeah!! Eagle!! :D. Raised my arms before it drops, and my playing partners start clapping, they wheren´t close to me to celebrate. A couple of high 5 closer to the green and big satisfaction when i pull it out of the hole. 3 under in 2 holes. Yes, it was luck that the ball went in but i made an amazing recovery shot.   
    • I think pondering the answer is its own punch line....
    • @ANDY_UK Interesting argument, but neither you nor the person that wrote the article has answered my question. If the ball is lost where do you drop? Obviously you don't have any idea where your ball went so how do you equitably drop in a place that does not give you an advantage? It could have hit a tree and gone backwards, it could have taken a horrible bounce and be well right or left of the fairway or green. You don't know so how could you possibly drop anywhere but from where you originally hit your shot? For example you're playing a match, one person hits their ball up against a tree, another person hits their ball, it hits something and goes off never to be seen again. The player who found their ball has to chip out backwards back to the fairway, the player with the lost ball just gets to drop where ever and add a stroke? Technically the player with the lost ball could be in better position after dropping and they both lie 2. Thats just wrong IMHO
    • Getting an old set and having them adjusted is not going to yield you any better results financially than getting a new set. If you're looking for the most bang for the buck, look at www.thegolfworks.com and get a set of their maltby irons built to your spec and flex.  They're only about $299 for the whole set.   The woods are just as amazing but you could find a used OEM driver for cheaper.   
    • Not surprised, they're great looking and performing clubs.
