Club breaks during swing

The head of a player's club separated from the shaft during his backswing. The player completed the swing but missed the ball. Is the player deemed to have made a stroke?

No. A stroke is “the forward movement of the club … ”. A shaft by itself is not a club – see Rule 4-1a.
