Just an idea...

Take a piece of steel rod from the hardware store and grind the tip into a screwdriver/chisel type flat point.  Shove the rod into shaft and chuck up the end in a drill motor.  The point should tear up that cork in no time.

Tom Spargo at Spargo Golf has always drilled them out in whatever stuff of mine he's had to weight with powder. I'm guessing there's other ways but that would seem the easiest.

I use one of those 48 inch drill bits from golfsmith, rips that suck right up, epoxied or not.
