Howdy! This is my first post at this forum!

Anyway, about 15 minutes ago my Hippo Giant 400cc titanium driver came in the mail! So the first thing i did was walked outside teed up a ball, and hit it(i live in the country, i can do that!). It his really well, but when i looked on the bottum was this medium sized scuff! i dont know how it got there! I made good connection with the ball.. anyway, i was wandering if anyone knows any good ways to take those out.

Thanks,

Jeffrey

J,

The scuff is on the bottom of the club?

I wouldn't worry about it. Over time it will just scuff or buff itself out from use. No sense trying to get it minty again just to have it happen all over.

And honestly, if you're pounding them out there nicely, what's one scuff gonna do? :D

Cheers,

Funny story about scuffs.

We had a guy call and said he broke his shaft, no problem we put a new shaft in the driver for him.
An hour later he calls back and said it was a defective shaft and it broke again. He comes in and the first thing we look at is the scuff pattern on the bottom. I have never seen it like this before, almost sideways towards the hosel. So I take him to the hitting cage to let him hit some while I watch, I put impact tape on the face. He hits 10 balls and never touches the impact tape so I put another piece back at the hosel and slightly on the bottom of the club.
10 more hits and I see a faint area on the bottom so I put another piece on the bottom of the club at the heel. 10 more hits and all are on the bottom of the club!
How do you fix that? I gave him a card of one of the teaching pros and told him not to hit anymore until he had taken a lesson.

Hitting the ball of the bottom of the club 10 times in a row? That can't be an easy task.

hey, are you sure it's not a scuff from the tee? If that's the case, an old toothbrush, some soapy water and some scrubbing will take it off in seconds

Because if you don't, it will take 10 yards off your drive. :D

I'm trying to picture how he does that but I can't figure it out. Sounds like a great candidate for video lessons.

You can use scotch brite to take small blemishes and tee marks off the club without causing any damage, unless it is chrome, then you will have more scratches.
