Hey everyone I purchased this club from GlobalGolf. I've been buying from them for 5+ years...over 100 transactions no issues.  However this issue was pointed out to me and I needed some opinions.

1.  The 5 is maybe a little crooked and has no degree underneath it

2.  It has another accent line on the bottom.

Serial Number 69IB7FQW

What in the world did I end up with??

Thanks!m2 bottom.jpg

I used to work at Continental Golf way back in the day and still keep up with they guys that work there.  Global golf is located in Raleigh, NC where Continental Golf is located and Global sends a lot of stuff over to Continental golf to refinish.  They will take really beat up clubs and have them refinish them for sale.

What could have happened is this club could have been sent over for a refinish and they didn't quite get the number right when they did this one.  Normally their work is top notch and for individual clubs that people bring in the detail is phenomenal but perhaps doing mass work a slight mistake was made.

Don't know for sure if this is what happened but I'm sure global golf will take care of it.

Crazy, I can't believe the quality of this thing for being fake. Wow

Also I have no doubt globalgolf will take care of this.  They are great people.

That is pretty bad, this is not our work for sure but I can tell you that as many clubs as we have refinished from Taylormade its not uncommon to see lofts or even circle t decals for alignment to be off.  

Having said that I would agree with Gioguy 100 percent.  The way I look at it is even if its not fake the doubt is there and you won't be happy with it in the long run.  They have great service like you said so give them a ring and have them get you squared away.

Global Golf is great, and like you mentioned you've bought tons from them before I'm sure they'd change it for you. But still a bit disappointing to think that this got slipped by them.

Also unfortunately even serial numbers are not a safe guarantee now. Any counterfeiters can walk into any store and write 5 different M2 serial numbers from a rack of M2 clubs and make 100's of clubs with those 5 serial numbers printed on the club.

Definitely interested to hear the outcome (I'm sure it'll be positive one).

I had a strong suspicion you guys wouldn't have touched this one and it's great that it's been confirmed from the source.

Just got off the phone with globalgolf...as expected they were extremely helpful and apologetic. They had nothing to replace it with and I could tell the rep was about to more then likely offer me a brand new model but I stopped her. I’m totally cool with the refund, it was no questions asked. I sent the rep some photos and am interested to hear back once they see them. Globalgolf is a classy company, not going to take advantage of them for a mistake...especially since I recently picked up a Scotty Napa for 89 bucks on there lol! I’m still way up in the game hahahaha

I traded in my cure putter to them for just about double what I got it from Rock bottom.
