Broken clubs

A player will be allowed to keep using a damaged club, or repair that club, during a round – even if the club was damaged as a result of an angry outburst by the player. But a damaged club cannot be replaced by another club except when it is damaged during the round by an outside influence, a natural force or by someone other than the player, partner or his caddie.

So if you bend your putter over your knee, you’re free to keep using it. But if the head of your driver flies off during a swing and you can’t repair it during the round, you’re out of luck.
