Beware when upgrading your shipping to overnight delivery. I upgraded my shipping to overnight on my order from Vokey but my package won't be here until next week. I was told by fedex that Vokey only offers standard overnight, which does not include weekend delivery. I'm really upset because I will not be home all of next week and have to make special arrangements now.

Just for the record, this is only the second problem I have ever had my entire life with an order from Titleist/Achushnet. And both times involved shipping.

I know Titleist/Achushnet has the Best service and I am not trying to rip on them. Just letting other TT members know that if they are hoping to get a quick order and receive it on Saturday, it may not happen.

These are the same issues (if you can really call them issues) at Scotty Cameron online as well.  Not a big deal, just realize it takes a day or two to pack/compile one's order then ship it out.  Weekend delivery has never been part of the overnight package offerings to my memory.   I am glad they offer these shipping options for such a small difference in cost in many cases!

That being said, since I am on the east coast I realize it will take 4-5 days for any regular shipping method so I need something quicker I opt for second day air but rarely overnight shipping.

Great responses from Mike and Chris.  Overnight shipping is typically next business day, unless the merchant offers Saturday delivery (which is an added cost).  The delivery time also needs to factor in when you place the order too.  If you place it late in the day, the item may not be packed and processed until the following day by the merchant.  And thus, wouldn't arrive until a day after that, so essentially you are looking at three days from order to arrival in some cases.

Add in those unexpected weather delays as well! Have had a few of those surprises in the past when expecting deliveries! Mother Nature is not a golfer!

I just pay for ground, I live 3 miles from where they ship and people East still get their swag before me!

I know I jumped the gun here. I was pretty wound up when I got off the phone with the delivery company. Guess I woke up on the wrong side the bed Saturday! ;)
