Club heads breaking=new set?

9 posts in this topic

Hey guys, so after not playing for the last few months I finally spent some time at the range. Last summer I bought a used set of taylormade burner 2.0 irons. Condition wise when I bought them they were a 7/10, and in less than a year Ive broken two club heads(one being yesterday). I'm debating if it worth getting it fixed, or just look for a different set. What do you guys think? Also, a few of the clubs are separated at the plastic part between the head and shaft.

Thanks

Send an email to Taylormade, maybe they will replace them free or very cheap. I don't think that should ever happen to any clubs.

When hurricane sandy hit my entire bag sat in saltwater for almost 48 hours. My irons rusted up a bit and the shafts pitted, but I cleaned them up and used them for an entire season and they're still perfectly intact.

I didn't even think of that. I'll send them an email and see what they say, its definitely worth a try.

Thanks

When you say you are breaking club heads what exactly is it that is broken?

The head and shaft are both intact but are separated from each other. So when they break the head goes flying in front of me. The club that broke yesterday didn't go flying, but is barely hanging onto the shaft.

If the glue is bad it shouldn't be a big deal at all to pull off the heads and replace the shafts and ferrules, but I would do it before a flying head ends up hurting somebody.

Is that something I should take to a shop and have done?

You should be able to have that done at any golf store that does any kind of regripping/reshafting. I thought you meant the head of the club itself was actually breaking into two pieces.

    • Possibly will be going to Barcelona Spain, middle of January.  My wife has her annual meeting over there this year.  Weather doesn't look like it will be great for golf though.  High's typically in the mid-50's.  But any recommendations for golf if we can get in a couple of rounds?
    • Frankly, I'm starting to think that dress codes have become necessary since people refuse to dress appropriately on their own.  Defendants showing up to court in shorts and shirts with the sleeves cut off is indicative of a problem.  A golf course doesn't need to be quite so formal, though. I have pretty minimal views of what is "respectful" on a golf course.  I personally generally wear long pants (sometimes shorts) and a collared shirt, but that's probably due to advances in textiles.  When I was younger, I wore jeans shorts and tee shirts to the local muni because that's what I had that would be remotely comfortable.   Since my friends and I were pretty much the only ones on the course one particular day when our school was the only one not having classes, we decided to take our shirts off and get a tan while golfing.  We were reprimanded by an employee and told to put them back I.  Looking back, I think this was the correct thing to do.  We were just trying to get tans, not be disrespectful, but I think the correction was warranted. I think a Course has the right to apply and enforce a dress code.  I'd hope that they relax it a bit if a visitor were unaware of it when first playing.  If a course does not want a dress code, good for them.  If you think the clientele at your local course is dressed in appropriately, speak with an employee about how you think people should be dressed, state that you will not patronize a place that allows such horrible cretins to breathe the same air as you, and then do not return.  The free market will decide if your business was important enough for them to force your opinions on others.
    • Thanks for sharing.   This is some great information.
    • Fascinating thread, shows how the generations view the world among other factors? And many of the views use extremes to make their point, e.g. cut off jeans, ratty T-shirts. I'm still baffled with the objection to cargo shorts, not the huge baggy ones, but the ones that are the same cut as "golf shorts" with extra pockets on the front. I also don't see how tucking in your shirt or having a collar have much to do with golf. I guess back when players wore plus fours and ties they were outraged at what's acceptable golf attire to much of today's older generation. Again, the Boomers and older generations are keeping younger generations away in droves by clinging to old norms IMHO. The sport will decline further/faster if that persists? Golf is more expensive and takes longer than many competing pastimes, is it really necessary to exacerbate the problem because someone otherwise neatly dressed doesn't have their shirt tucked in with a belt on?
    • So if everyone played Sunday's round on Sunday, they could start the round with LCP and that would be fine, correct?
