I play with (or did rather) a Titleist 910 D2 Driver.  I absolutely Loved this club, I seemed to have better control with this driver than any other that I have ever hit.  All of that aside, while playing a round one day on the 10th Tee after my drive, I could hear a high pitch whistling type of noise coming from my driver.  I could not figure out if it was coming from the head of the club or the shaft.  After a minute or so of my buddy and me with our ear to the head of this club it stopped.  I was a little concerned but didn't bag it, because what could I do at this point anyway?  So I get home and spray it with soapy water to look for any cracks in the head, and found nothing, so I submerged it, no bubbles or signs of cracks anywhere.  The club still feels great, doesn't seem to have lost the "trampoline" effect.  Over the next few rounds though it has seemed to have lost quite a bit of distance.  I thought it was me, but I tried a different driver and got my distance back.  I switched to a Taylormade RBZ Tour and was back in the 270-280 range I used to be.  So, after all of this (probably unnecessary) explanation, my question is this.  Can a club just go dead?  Has anyone else had an experience like this?

Maybe its in a happy mood...

Seriously though, I have heard drivers can go dead before but never had one do it to me

The whistling sound odd, almost like the head was pressurized... On the Titleist web site there is a forum you can join.  Might be worth asking there.  Perhaps, if it is a pressurization issue, there is a way to restore it?

    • Thanks for braving the cold and putting this video up! You've got a nice and efficient swing. I look forward to seeing more!  Ps. The straps are definitely long enough to fit a dump truck. I like to tuck them as well, but could be trimmed too. 
    • Barely above freezing, sleet and drizzle, gusty wind off of L Huron. 143 yds to the pin. Drop 1 1/2 clubs and smooth a knock down 7 iron under the wind. It flies dead straight, no more than 50' off the ground and ends up overhanging the cup. It looked physically impossible it wouldn't drop when I got there. At least I made the birdie putt. lol.
    • Thanks for the positive experience you shared.
    • Maybe yipper’s should go side saddle or use a wedge instead.    Just change it all up. 😁 I’ve always enjoyed using the TPM aid. Pushes you towards a fluid motion. I also wonder if making more putting games on the practice greens would help.
    • I am saving a small fortune (to me) on car maintenance and gas, clothing and lunches. Just heard, no plan to return until at least April.  I get two hours a day of commuting time back in my life. Due to MS Teams use by the company, I'm getting my stretching and pushups done throughout the work day.  I'm more productive at work., from home. After losing employment, My son and his better half, moved to a smaller community and both obtained full time employment immediately. Folks , stay safe and healthy
