Will leaving my golf clubs in the trunk of my car hurt them? Has any bro here tried this for more than a year without any adverse effect on the club?

Thanks.

My clubs are always in the boot... have been doing this for the last 10 years.

However, I cannot comment if that will hurt the club or not, as none of my clubs so far stayed in my bag for more than 3 months. So, as far as I can tell, 3 month in the boot in an uncovered car park will not hurt them

That's what I meant. Will the heat break down the epoxy or glue and render them useless?

I'm not worry about the bag. Just worry the clubs under the intense heat from the sun day in day out.

Another alternative is to go home and get the bag every time I'm out and want to pop into the driving range. But that's quite troublesome.

Actually, I am quite broke already that's why my 2012 resolution is to keep my current set till the end of the year. So far so good... 2 months already (except for the driver which is 1 week old)... must resist posion then I will be able to tell you if clubs in the boot for a year will hurt of not.

Going to driving range to train with a spare set which is different from the main set is not a solution.

seriously

try not to leave it in your car

not good for em... tho not proven

also increase the fuel consumption... tho this maybe minor cost to u

but i prefer a car where its empty...

so i take the extra effort

Dear all,

we have cases where the epoxy breaks up and the heads literally drop off the shaft.

although it involves leaving them in hot corners of the house or in a car under a sun for a prolonged period of time, its best not to leave them in the trunk for prolonged period of time.

all the driving around and rattling will not do your clubs any good.
