Here's my Dilemma: Standing at the tee box, I wind up and connect very well. Now the only problem is that I am standing over the top of my driver in pieces. This was not the only time or last time I would break my shaft on a golf club. Let me begin with the first occasion. I was just learning how to play golf around the age of 24. I was at the driving range with my buddy. He had a full set of clone clubs. I was hitting his driver, and I swung and connected and the head only flew off. Ok, we originally thought...these clubs were 10 years old (circa 1997), and the "glue" broke down and then I gave that clone driver it's farwell swing. Fast forward to the ages of 29-31. In that span I have broke 3 steel iron club shafts, 2 Driver Shafts, and most recently a 3-wood shaft. I believe that I have a fast swing speed, but I haven't tested it yet. With my iron shots I always take huge chunks 'o dirt, real nice pelts that a taxidermist would love to use :-P Below are the clubs that I have broken the shafts:
-Ping G10, Black Dot, True Temper zz65 shafts
A-wedge, 8-iron, and 6-iron
-Adams Speedline 4G Ultra-Lite 12 degree Driver, 55g Grafalloy Blue ProLaunch Regular Shaft
-Callaway Diablo Edge Tour 15 Degree 3-Wood, Aldilla Voodoo SVS7 Shaft
- Adams Fast 12 Driver, Stiff Stock Shaft (TESTER at local pro shop)
Here's the cherry on top....Every shaft has broken over my shoulder/back on my follow-through. The obvious comes to mind...
Control your follow-through. Everything I read says that it's incredibly difficult to do such a thing.
I leave this to you. Attached here a couple of photos that I have of the carnage...
Has anyone heard or seen this happen before?
