Hi all, I stupidly submerged my driver head when cleaning it and now there is water stuck inside sloshing around. Any suggestions on how to get this out??


Most drivers now have a weight or other type of screw in the head. If your has this, you can either get the tool to remove the weight or bring it to a shop and they will do it.

Hopefully you can do what @boogielicious suggested.

If no weight/screw ports are availablele and water is sloshing around inside the head, then abviously there's  an open pathway for it have got in there in the first place. A weak connection point maybe?

I'm thinking lean it head up against a wall, next to heater vent, or use a hair dryer on low to help it evaporate out. This might be a quicker, free fix. Just dont over heat the head, which could cause the epixy connection to fail. 

Then again since the head is not sealed, take it to a pro shop for a repair, and have them check for a cracked head casing. If no cracks are found, remove the head, drain the water, and reseal/install the head back on the shaft. 

I got water in one of my drivers once. The water enterd through a small area where the shaft and hosel were glued. A bad glue job was the problem. Eventually, that area void of any glue could of caused the head to loosen up, and come off.

    • They are about making money, but reputation is also worth a lot of money. If your supply chain involves human rights issues, bribery, exploitation, etc., and your customers find out, you can lose a lot more money than you saved with lower cost raw materials or manufacturing sites. And I mean a lot more.  The company I retired from spends considerable resources to determine if the supply chain meets the company’s core values. I was part of those teams. PR is hugely important. Keeping customers is absolutely vital. Premium products can cost more because those supply chain have been vetted. The company’s reputation depends on it.  A hypothetical concern was raised about RL in the thread above with no data support that accusation. For all we know, RL has fully vetted their supply chain and that is why they are so ready to protect their brand. I hope JT learns from that.
    • 100% Agreed - I don’t think I could’ve recalled that word from the 80’s-90’s if you paid me. It’s so obsolete. If he pulled that out of thin air at a moment of frustration, clearly it’s not that obsolete from his vocabulary.    Having said that, when someone does something they regret, I try not to judge them in their worst moments as I wouldn’t want to be judge in mine.  But don’t give me that “it’s not me” line. Let’s be honest.
