PostSubject: Sadness   Thu Sep 15, 2011 2:08 am

Just wanna share my fateful experience earlier today

Total sadness, as my new driver head was chip by someone else at the range(name withheld). I only used it once on course and now theres a 1 to 2 inch chip mark on top of the King Cobra pearl white driver head. When I mentioned the chip mark, he apologised and I forgave him reluctantly (what can I do?), but the pain & sadness is still there. .

Question :
If it were you, will you lend it to them if they ask for it?
If No, how do you decline politely?
And lastly, How can I touch it up ? <-- need help here!

I think I will offer to buy it from you if I am the one to did it.

Question :
If it were you, will you lend it to them if they ask for it?
Depend whether they are very close to me and also what's their skill level
If No, how do you decline politely?
Tell them lor "It's still new hor, don't damage it, if damage you pay!"
And lastly, How can I touch it up ? <-- need help here!
If it's an inch or more, very slim chance you can do any touch up to restore it back.
Or you can try your luck by trying this link
Touch up Paint
I have never try it before but someone must lead the way right?

I agree with JC. I think that if the damage is apparent, the person who caused it should be responsible to replace. It's like borrowing a car - if it gets banged up, you can't simply return it and shrug. You have to fix it.

How did the guy chip it? It must have been a really bad swing to have missed the range carpet .. I feel for you dude because my previous driver was spoilt by my friend ... After I started to dislike my driver I never hit another good drive ..

Alamak.. i feel heartpain for u bro.. white drivers are nice... but easily scratched.

Yesterday i let a guy try my driver at the range with really crappy old balls. and scratched up the face abit. Hai... wat to do?

now i got another fren who's very eager to try my driver after i put in a new shaft. i very scared he sky my driver.. but how to reject? i can tell him to try at the shop.. but he wants to try my shaft.

one way is to bring some tape with u and tape the top part of the driver in case they sky it i guess? or just tape up the whole face.. hehe

To say 'NO' its a pretty tough thing. Fortunately I am a user of N-3 version...so no one really want to try any of mine.

But I think its both ways

For the one planning to TRY: Pls try to limit to over-aggressiveness and excitement

For the one planning to chio ppl to try: Pls....be prepared for accidents.

Now I understand why I go try at GH, they put a 'plaster' on the club....and try to get me to try the super-duper forgiving ones only

Some range balls are rock hard and have many scuff marks on them. When they r hit with super thin faced drivers. They tend to leave scratch marks or lil chips. Sad

[u]

Bro.. Skying a shot is when the ball is tee-ed up too high and the club gets under the ball. Contact is made at the top edge of the club where the clubface meets the top part of the driver or in some cases fairway woods. The ball will pop straight up into the air like a flop/Lob shot. And usually leaves a nasty mark or scratches on the top of the club. Very visible at setup. Esp with white drivers.

It wouldnt really affect anything. Just cometics and an aching heart. Wink

Why is saying 'NO' so tough?

Give it some thought.

Avoid the unpleasantness of saying No, and live with regret with the outcome. Skied shot, scratched club, etc.

OR.

Say No flat out. And continue to enjoy your pristine driver. Your friend may or may not fume a bit; who cares? Your club, which YOU paid for, is still pristine. And you get to enjoy it will full peace of mind.

So, like everything else in life, it's a CHOICE that YOU make. If you regret, you chose the path that led to it. Blame no one else.

How about this.

"Your club looks nice. Can I try it?"

Possible answers.

1. "Your wife/girlfriend looks nice too. Can I....?"

2. "The reason I have this new club is because the last guy who tried skied my previous club and I made him buy it from me. The club costs $xxx. Want to try?"

3. "My underwear is also new, you want to try that too?"

4. "If you were a pretty girl, and you're talking about my 15th club, then yes, otherwise, NO."

Many students want to try my driver. Quite simply I tell them "you sky it, you buy it"!

They laugh but I say I am serious, do you still want to try?

Usual answer is no...

Haha I say that too. Then I add on by saying I'm actually thinking of selling. So be careful. Then they usually don't try anymore or at most hit 2-3 balls. :p

I also kana too. Im using Miura irons. Just those old timers at range saw my new irons sets & we start to talk about how wonderful & soft when you hit the G-sport of the irons.Than they started to ask me to let them try try. I told them to go to the dealer if they are keen. I felt that these irons are like my babys, I dont like to let others touch & what happen if they miss hit? They just said " OPPS sorry" What can you do? Do u want to make a big fuss at the range? You are the one that didnt stop them from trying.
I also kana once that i had to go toilet to pee. When i came back, my friends is trying my irons. somemore, he is telling everyone that these are very exp irons. Faint! now everyone want to try.... Worst is that if they miss hit, they will use the iron to hit the range mat. Hei, i was going to tell them that 1) you wouldnt get good shots after hitting the mat 2)this is not baseball bat!
