I've never broken a club in my golfing life but I did break my dad's putter when I was a little kid.

You mean you're not supposed to use them to beat up snowmen? What are they good for then?

None this year.. but I have Broken 3.. 1 was a 7 iron i caught a tree on my follow through and kinked the shaft.. 1 i cracked where the face meets the sole of a driver. And i had a graphite shaft break Pretty sure it was do to being cheap clubs.. Magregor starter set.. Nothing out of anger.. 

 

I played with a guy that tossed a 4 iron at his bag caught the push cart just right and broke the shaft, it then ended up in the pond.. he said he didn't like that club anyhow.. Ok..

I have never broken a club, but I have had 2 club heads come off, both at the range.  One was a driver when I was deciding if I wanted to play this game 26 years ago; a Redbird that the pro shop gave me to hit with a bucket of balls.  The other was a brand new SCOR wedge just as they were going out of business.  There was very little epoxy.

I broke my first this year. After a shank into the drink at PGA WEST I put my 7 iron on shoulders and bent it slightly. It snapped. that hole cost us the match too. Too much rage I guess.

I haven't broken a club in anger since 2004. I have however broke the face and flattened several. But in 2017 not a single one since I have only played 6 rounds

I've never broke a single club. Although my pitching wedge has been mistreated several times. I know it's coming.

None, never broke a club or thrown one. Golf has always been an outlet for me to relieve pressure at work so I never take my bad play or stupidly that serious.

Did have Ping 6 iron head take off on me during a swing once, went further than the ball.

I've had epoxy fail, but I don't consider that a broken club.  I bent the shaft on my 50 degree wedge, but it's because I hit a tree root on my swing.

 

As for breaking/throwing a club in anger....never.  I play with a guy that will break a few each year and throws them quite often.  The GM of my club also needs to buy wedge shafts by the gross they go over his knee so often.

 

My thoughts on breaking clubs...

 

1.  You look like a child throwing a tantrum, it's a bad shot.  Get over it.

2.  Instead of breaking the club why not rip a $100 bill in half.  It's the same thing throwing money away

3.  This isn't the PGA tour and you aren't playing for millions

 

and most important

 

4.  We aren't good enough at golf to get that upset over a bad shot.

The only club I've ever had break on me was an old Callaway X2Hot Pro FW. Wasn't from anger, just a freak break right near the hosel. I don't throw clubs, I may slam one back in the bag but I'm more likely to hit a ball into the woods or into the water after a bad hole than take it out on the clubs.

Exactly, I'm sure not good enough to get that upset. Also I paid a lot of money for my equipment so I'm sure not going to break it.

There are demons that can live inside the shaft of a golf club.  Those demons can have a profound negative effect on one's golf game.  When they do, the only remedy is to let the demons out by opening the shaft. 

 

I've had to perform one demon letting this year.  Didn't want to, but eventually it became compulsory.

I do understand what your saying. I'm just too cheap to break a club!
