How to Repair Dents in a Golf Club

By Marc Jenkins

A common problem that many golfers endure after having a set of clubs for a lengthy amount of time is putting dents in those clubs. There is absolutely no way to avoid them, time and time again after they have struck a ball or the ground out of frustration, they will receive normal wear and tear just as anything in life. Once it occurs, there is nothing that be done about it, except to fix the dents.


Difficulty: Challenging
Step 1
Drill a small hole into the dented club and insert the tool. After insertion, slide the tool up, down and around slowly inside of the club until you witness it begin to reform back into shape. Don't worry about the small hole in the club that can easily be fixed with either tape or paint.
Step 2
With the pliers, gently push the sides that are not dented to completely reform the club. This will allow the club to regain some of its original shape.
Step 3
Bend the entire club back into shape very gently so that you don't comprise it anymore. Bending it too hard can cause it to turn into complete trash and it won't be usable.
Step 4
Tape (with the golf or electrical tape) around where the dent use to be. It won't be the greatest job in the world, however the dent will be taken care of and you won't have to worry about it being a problem for a small period of time.

Tips & Warnings

You must have the utmost patience when it comes to performing these actions, just the slightest bit of haste could result in doing it wrong or compromising your club more than it already is.
Understand this method is not an exact one; the best way to fix a dent in a club is actually to buy a whole new one altogether. It isn't a 100 percent guarantee that this will work, however if you really are attached to your club(s) and the method didn't work, then take it to a golf club refinisher who should able to work his magic.
