No golfer wants to hear the sound of a club shaft snapping. Club shafts made from graphite or steel can all be over stressed and break at times. Graphite shafts often fracture a single miss hit where the ground does the damage. Steel shafts can snap from long-term use and bending during repeated ground hits. If you spend a lot of time at the driving range and hit off the mats with concrete underlayment – this does stress the shaft over time. Broken shafts frequently occur at the joint of the club head. The repair process involves boring out the remaining piece from the club head, The club head hosel must be cleaned and prepped before a new shaft can be placed in to it.
