Well I was re-gripping my clubs today when I made a huge mistake. I had finished removing the old grips and tape from my clubs. I had leaned the clubs along the side of my work bench. I was taking a break to fix a little dinner and decided to take out the trash, as I had a bag behind me I must have brushed my driver so as I was going out the door it fell right into the path of the closing door. So as the title says crunch is a bad sound LoL. When I heard it I knew what it was. I picked up the club and have a nasty squished shaft about 12 inches from the end of the shaft. Oh well I have been hitting much better drives with my 3 wood anyway LoL.

The moral of the story is, don't lean your clubs up where they can fall into the door and go crunch..:banghead:

I saw a guy at the course yesterday get his driver shaft crunched when he slammed his trunk on it by accident. I didnt see if it was damaged or not, but it must have been.

That must be aggravating.

Take the positive. Now you have a good excuse to get fit into a new shaft!

Thanks guys. I had all but quit hitting the darn thing anyway. I had lost all confidence in it and have been using my 3 wood anyway, but I had just decided to buck up and learn to tame the beast LoL. Guess I will go with my fall back old maid driver the Wilson Deep Red 12* and see if it preforms as well or better than my 3 wood.

Good idea and as much as I would love to do that or replace the driver with one of the fancy new adjustable one it is just not in the cards. My full time job does not pay my anything. Caregiver for my family. Very rewarding but no monies.

At least you have a driver to fall back on.

Fair enough. I'm only a supply teacher hardly working this year (government and union fighting), and I got a new Covert only because with xmas gift cards and trade in I only paid 71 bucks :). Always look on the positive; at least you get to play at all!
