RIP 3 Iron Shaft Broke During Follow Through

Today, during swing speed training drills, my 3 iron shaft broke as it hit my back shoulder.  What a sad, sad day.

I wasnt even hitting balls during this particular drill.

My full swing 3 iron swing speed is 102 mph currently.  

Maybe it was a weak spot and it was getting heated during my drills and over time it just went.  What a downer.  👎  IMG_20190112_104331_196.thumb.jpg.c74b1b08c0cc892583d3bca62f242545.jpgIMG_20190112_104331_195.thumb.jpg.276940ae8bb962f6c795ddd3c99e74f8.jpg

Sure is a downer, I suppose you can get it re-shafted, the Dynamic Gold shafts are common. How old is the club/shaft? That really shouldn't happen unless you are really bouncing it off your back.

Yeah... Gonna head over to Golf Galaxy and pick up a new shaft.  Shaft is a few/several years old.

My 3 iron has been my main club I use when starting practice, drills, etc.  Many years ago, i decided that if I was hitting my 3 iron well, then the other clubs would be good also.  Prior to that, if I started practice, i would start with a higher lofted club, and by the time i got to the 3 iron, I might not be hitting it too well.  So now i always start with 3 iron, then pw, then driver, then 4i, then 9i, 5i, 8i, 6i, 7i, 60, 56, 52, then random... But the 3 iron gets many, many more reps with speed drills than does 52* for instance.  So i think i just weakened a spot over time or it was a bad spot that was strong enough for several years, but finally had had enough.  Thanks for the comment.

He did say the shaft hit his back shoulder. I had a shaft snap inside the grip of a 7 iron in a used set I bought. I stripped the grip and the shaft was dented at the break point. I know I didn't do that, so the previous owner must have.

I went to Golf Galaxy today right when they opened at 11, and got a new shaft.  It is like 40 minutes round trip.  So I got back home... and forgot to get a new ferroule.  Ugh... I thought I would only miss the 1st quarter of the Patriots/Chargers, but when I saw it was a blowout, I decided to head on back over.  Got the ferroule, made it back home, mixed the epoxy and glued it up.  Tomorrow I will put the new grip on, get it marked,and all will be good to start using it again on Tuesday.

    • Day 356 The holes in my net have become unmanageable, and I've ripped holes in the target cloth blocking the holes in the net now too. While I wait for my warranty replacement (not sure how Rukket earns money considering all the nets I've been through), I just hit some 50% speed 5-irons with the feeling of the club head moving before the handle to start transition, and tried to keep the trajectory low to hit an integral part of the net.
    • When you missed that one foot putt did you tell him your name was Bill Buckner?  😁
    • That's a great hat! I have one just like it, plus various other Red Sox, Patriots, and Bruins hats. I played with a Yankees fan one day while wearing a Red Sox hat,and I told him that he was a very lucky man because he could look at my hat for four hours.
    • View this round on GAME GOLF Very wet, cartpaths only. Plugged drives all day. Played something that kind of resembled golf. Not going to bother analyzing anything since it's December 3rd. Was just happy to get out on a nice course. Highlights of the day were making birdie from a penalty area on #9 and the twisting sand cart paths I drove golf cart rally on.
    • I doubt you were actually swinging slower. Did you have any clubhead data?
