Was playing my new 818H1 yesterday when I noticed what looks like a pucker or small dent of sorts on the crown. I did not notice it earlier in the round. In fact, I had just teed off with it on the previous hole, and it was not there. Then on the next hole I needed it for my approach from the rough. I hit my shot and it felt kind of funny, but I just attributed it to the thick rough. When I went to put the club back in my bag, I noticed this pucker in the crown (shown below). There is no nick in the paint indicating that something banged into it. There is only the depression in the crown with smooth paint. I was devastated when I saw it. I just purchased the hybrid 3 weeks ago and was really loving it. Bought it brand new. I am virtually certain I did not do anything to ding the club. I treat my clubs like my babies. The headcovers (on my Dr, 3W and Hybrid) stay on the club at all times except when I am actually using it. I try my best to never pull or yank clubs in or out of my bag in an aggressive manner. I really have no idea how this could have happened. Having been a Titleist loyalist for at least 10 years, and been a Team Titleist member since the year TT started online, I am hopeful there is something that can be done to fix it. It is such a beautiful club to view at address. This will really bother me to look at now. Even if I send it back to Titleist for repair, assuming it can even be repaired, I don't know how I will live without it during that period. It really pains me to see the way it looks right now, particularly since I have no idea how or when it happened.
