why do my clubs keeping breaking?

8 posts in this topic

I had a question as to what theories there are to why my clubs keep breaking? I bought a set of barely used burner 2.0 irons from a golf store and i've snapped of 3 clubheads in a month. Two of them the club didnt even touch the ground it was off a tee. The shafts breaks off right at the hozel.

I get some good distances like 175-185 yards carry with a 7 iron here in Seattle. So i think i strike it pure not sure if the clubs are messed up or if its my swing

It's the stock stiff 85gram shatf

It sounds like the clubs were left in a humid environment and were either stored clubhead down or they have the sensicore shaft material in them to absorb vibtation (which also absorbs moisture).  This can casue the shaft to rust right next to the hozel where the  moisture gathers.  This weakens the metal and the clubheads break.  The fact that it has happened to 3 heads makes me think that is the case.  I had a buddy with a brand new set of Wilson Fat Shafts that this kept happening to.  Those shafts were thin and it didn't take long in his basement for them to rust and start breaking.  If you like the clubs, have them all re-shafted...may be more economical to just buy new irons.

Where did you get the clubs from? Hopefully it was a reputable dealer or they could be counterfeit. There is a lot of counterfeit golf stuff nowadays. Just a thought.

Thanks Bugdude. I think you might be right since I bought them slightly used. Probably left in the trunk of the previous guy's car and rusted.

kcgolfa1 - I bought them from "pro golf" so they should be legit...

Storing in the trunk shouldn't make clubs fail....

The clubs are either faulty, or you are bad luck............LOL

so... the shaft actually snapped?  or just came of the clubhead?

I had a new set of TM 2.0s. First year broke 3 shafts off at the hosel. Finally, after breaking my SW I called TM and they said they would send me a replacement set of Rocketballz. I used the Rocketballz all of 2013 with no issues. This spring, 2014 i played 1 round and was at the range and the head broke off my 8 iron. ??? wth...... I am so perplexed. Stiff shaft stock steel shafts. I dont think my swing is that hard but could that be whats causing the problems?

It sounds like you may be hitting the hosel, or way too far on the heel. There's no way on earth you should have broken 5 clubs combined between two different sets. The flex of the shaft is not even important here. I honestly think you should investigate the hosel of one of the club heads and make sure there's no sign of ball impact on it. If there's not, then I have no clue.

I am also 99.9999% sure this is not related to your swing speed.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
