Replacing screen is actually a skilled work. i don't know about your knowledge in electronics. So it is not possible to say, you can or not. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
I assume you meant the screen is now broken. Some things to consider:
1. Replace the son with one who does not throw golf balls in the house. Ha ha! [jk] 2. Check to see if the warranty (usually online if you don't have the original paperwork) covers screen breakage, or ask the store where you bought the tv if there is anything they can do. 3. If the warranty is a no-go, contact the tv manufacturer and see why they may do... what the cost would be to repair etc. Some screens are covered in case they crack, but it is probably obvious it wasn't a manufacturer's defect if a golf ball hit it. 4. If those steps don't work out, check videos or info online to see if this is a job you or a techie could do - (in last case scenario). 5. If none of these check out, sadly, you might be left with a very large, expensive doorstop. :-( Good luck.
You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new tv. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.
