I'll try what you described, I am quite good with hand work usually. I'll also keep a look for a used one that's not too expensive!   There is also the possibility of a complete set of new irons, a broken club could be a good excuse for the wife to accept 
I have the half'n'half shafts (half graphite and half steel) so might be hard to re-shaft with a new shaft if the shaft is also bent, they don't seem too common.
Rotator cuff tendinitis. Went off to play golf + volleyball even with some pain in my shoulder. Now paying for it, out of golf for some time!
Hi!   Hit a rock with my 6 iron (Wilson Staf Di11) and the club bent a little backward at the ferulle (I can see a little gap between the ferrule and the club head) and when looking at the club, there is clearly a couple of degrees of angle toward the back of the club that is not there on any other irons of the set. Don't know if it's just mental, but since then, can't hit properly (5 iron and 7 iron are good, 6 iron are all fat). Evrything still sems rock solid, no...
Same! Everytime I am in a bad situation (weird lie, ball way up/down from my feet, etc...) I go for my 6 iron (or lower if I am close to the green). I prefer to lay up being confident I'll hit my shot with my 6 iron then trying to go for the green and not being confident about it. It might be because everytime I practice, I do my warm-up with my 6 iron, so the 6 iron is the club I hit the most at the range.
I use oobgolf.com. It is all website driven, so will work on any platform. There are some minor issues with it (very minor) but I have not found anything free that gives out as much information.
Yeah, what you said makes total sense. His swing is probably in-to-out, but his clubface is open the same amount of degrees that his swing is. Since he said he had a nice little draw before, he was probably swinging in-to-out before too. Since the problem only arrived since he started to put his weight forward, he probably contacts the ball earlier than before so his clubface has not "released" yet. If before he was hitting with his club face square to target, but now he...
Have you tried a slightly stronger grip ? Usually it promotes a closeb clubface at impact. So maybe your grip is a little too weak, and your natural hand position at impact makes the head to be slightly open.   Adress your club with the face pointing as you do right now, strengthen your grip a little without changing the clubface angle, and try a couple of swings.
Just wondering where this 2 caddie rule stops.   Last week at the barclay's, a player (sorry can't remember his name) hit a shot out of a greenside bunker. After his shot, he went on the green to mark his ball and since his ball was dirty he looked at his caddie to clean it, but his caddie was busy raking the bunker. The other player's caddie made him a sign and the player threw his ball to the other caddie, that cleaned it and threw it back to the player.   Would that...
