I broke the shaft on my TaylorMade r7 driver today. Is it worth getting the shaft fixed or should I just get a new club?
I wanna hear the story of how u broke it first...
Unfortunately I wrapped my 4-iron around a tree a few years ago and got it fixed at golfsmith, I'd recommend taking it in and getting a quote and weigh that against your replacement cost but for me it was significantly cheaper to get it fixed
I threw two putters in the lake on the same hole on back to back putts. Never broke one before
You wouldn't really get the shaft fixed. Just get it replaced. You'll save money that way. The head of the club is the most expensive with the technology inside of it. They could probably reuse the grip as well. I would take it to a golfsmith and have them replace the shaft. Especially if you like the club. If not, it is certainly a good excuse/reason to buy a new one.

1. That wasn't very smart...
2. Why were you carrying 2 putters?
3. That wasn't very smart... lol
Just upgraded from an R9 to an R11S. I would highly recommend it.
Fix the shaft and if you take it to goldsmith you can get it fit for you and swing weighted for you which will make it a better club for you in the long run.
Story is lame. I'm stationed at Altus Ok at the moment and it's pretty windy. Bag fell over and cracked the shaft. Didn't realize it til the next hole. Still hit the drive straight but it was done after that
That's what I meant by fixed, replaced. But thanks for the help, I'll see how much it costs to get the shaft replaced
1. Drunk off my ass at a bachelor's party
2. Always carry two putters
3. Lol yea we were playing skins. Lost a $200 hole on a three foot putt. First putt was a give me but they made me putt it and I was waisted pushed it three foot beyond the hole and missed the second putt. Finished using my buddies extra putter
Two stories, bought a Jack Nicklaus driver for 150, went straght to the driving range, half way thru the bucket, hea flies 100 yds out into the field, they got it for me so I returned it and dripped the money for a burner...second, used to carry a clubfrom my old set so I could break them, highly recommended
Your logic is boggling my mind
HAHAHA Well then, that certainly makes more sense. Even the gimmes can be tough when you're wasted.
A shaft on a driver? Going to be significantly cheaper to re-shaft it.
If it was a wedge, then yes buy a new club unless you're really attached to it.
I just got my pw re-shafted only b/c my set belonged to my uncle that passed away years back. Very important to me.
I was talking to a guy at work today and his son just graduated from a school in okc (not ou) he son has a friend that's trying to make the tour and he shot a 55 on a round of 18 this week. (course record) I think they're trying to check Guinness for some kind of world record. Could be full of shit but it's a good story. Apparently he shot a 25 on the back nine first then played the front nine. The guys in his group were twittering about his round and there was a group of about 35 watching him finish the round by the time he got to the ninth green.
Was he playin from the women's tee
Or was it a Par 3 course?
He was playin from the blues at a par 72 course in okc. It was at a private club and I'm trying to find out which one.
I was wrong ...it's a par 71 course. That's impressive.
