I recently purchased the 917 D3 ... performance is fantastic, everything from the feel, ball flight, set up are all great.
But there is one thing I am highly disappointed with. Let me first start by saying I am one of those golfers that puts on his headcover after EVERY drive before it goes back into the bag, just so there are no dings, scratches, etc on the head from banging around in the bag against other clubs. The paint job on the crown is knicking in spots. (pics to follow later) It almost looks like little rocks hit the top of the crown & put little "tick marks" on it. How does this occur?
Is there something inside the headcover making these marks that I don't know about? I felt inside and found nothing.
Is anyone else noticing anything like this with their 917? I mean I love the color, but the paint coming off is disappointing, especially with what I paid for the club.
I have drivers all the way back to the 975D in the late '90s that all look brand new with just marks on the club face. All because I have taken care of each & every one of them from day one but keeping the headcover on all the time. Plus it has never been dropped accidentally out of the bag onto the cart path or ground. As you might be able to tell, I take the condition of ALL my clubs very seriously.
Once I post pics to show the damage, is there anything that can be done by Titleist? Any Titleist Concierge have any thoughts on the matter?
Thanks & Titleist is still #1 in my book!
