How Much Will This Cost to Fix?

I recently picked up golf and my friend game me a set of his old clubs. There is a bit of a crack on the part where the driver head and the shaft meet. Just curious if I need to buy an entire new club or if it is an easy fix! Thank you in advance

Is there a crack in the head?  I can't tell from the photograph.  The ferrule has slid up the shaft a bit; but that can be tapped back in place with an open end wrench and a weighty object.  If there is a crack, in the head itself, the club is toast.  It could still provide service as a themed pen or pencil holder/paperweight...once the shaft is removed.

That looks to me like a ferrule is loose, easy fix for a golf shop, probably only a few bucks (if they even bother to charge you for this).

If it's just the ferrule and you can't move it back, a golf shop should be able to fix for about $5.

If the head is loose and working itself off the shaft, that is again a very simple repair, not more than $15.

... If the ferrule is difficult to move, pour some boiling water over it slowly for about 10 seconds and then push it back into place.

The ferrule on my 3 wood has looked that way for years, I just leave it alone, it isn't loose or anything. If it really bothers you take it to a golf shop for an easy fix.

Or you could try heating it with a hair dryer to soften the glue and push them back together

    • Seems like he has a good support group and yeah, opening up must be cathartic.  Good on him for addressing it, young kids and all.
    • Good for Bubba to speak out about his problems, and it's even better that he's found his own way of dealing with his anxiety.  What struck me as somewhat odd is that there's not much mention of any sort of professional therapy.  From my own experience, I've found it quite helpful, though damn expensive.
