Will this dent affect my performance?

Hey!

I have this dent on the bottom of my driver, do you think it will affect my performance in any way or is it more of a cosmetic thing? Really hope it's the latter of the two. Also would anybody know if there is a way to fix this sort of thing? Thanks in advance!

It'll be fine Marty.  I've seen a lot of ones like that where people hit the top of the ball with bottom of the heel like you did.  Only issue would be if there was a crack but I don't see one.

I'd tell anyone, that asks, that it isn't a dent but rather a "Vortex Cavity".  It helps to reduce drag and maximize club head speed.  The technology is proprietary and no further information, regrettably, may be disclosed.

Sheesh, I don't  know if I could've shown that. Good on you Kmarty!

I think his username is a clue as to where that club may have come from! Don't get me wrong. I have friends who have bought clubs at WalMart and can hit them like nobody's business!

...not sure if serious but there's a story to that dent.

I was thinking the same thing.

It shouldn't affect anything. If it does you'll notice it your first time using it post-dent.

I thought the same thing but they would have to drill holes in the dent to pull it out I think, may do more harm than good.

At what point would you consider buying a new club? LOL

I saw an Epic die over a tee marker earlier this year (an expensive demonstration of frustration, happily not mine), not that I suspect that's what happened here... In his defense, the perpetrator thought we was hitting a wooden branch cut into a tee marker (which would have been a little more forgiving), but it was cast metal in the shape of a branch. 

The Epic had a visible crack but lasted another few holes before it began twisting on the shaft (a result of the adhesive losing its grip... which is common from heel slams).  

As long as you don't plan to play in any competitions, play it as long as you want or it will go.
