Clinton was pretty active too, oh wait, that was still behind his desk
I have bought over ten drivers in the past two years. I've experienced two breakages.  One from my 15 yr old Grandson mishandling the driver and subsequently snapping the shaft at the hosel. The second was also snapped at the hosel by my Son-in-law. I think he just hits too hard because he also busted the face of a different driver.  Anyway during the period of the failures both had trouble with their swing and had hit the ground behind the ball on occasion.   My...
Not sure if it's cold enough in Chicago yet for balls sitting outside to gain that much density, and would suspect the driver face itself as being weakened by usage.  So what were the temperatures involved?

The grip should be just strong enough to keep the club from slipping from your hands. A strong grip restricts club movement because it cant be done without tensing the muscles in your arms.  I suggest asking a instructor to check your grip and swing.    For the gloves, I've found the more you pay for one the thinner the material, leading to...
