GolfWRX Opens New Online Store

Published

on

Ever wish you had more GolfWRX in your life? We do too, which is why we’re re-launching a new online store with exclusive GolfWRX items that will take your on-course style to new heights.

The most popular item in the GolfWRX store has always been our famous poker chips, and the new models have been totally reimagined for 2014.

GolfWRX Tour Serialized Poker Chips: $3.00 each

“We’ve spared no cost in the manufacturing of these chips,” say Richard Audi, founder and president of GolfWRX. “We partnered with the leading gaming chip supplier in the world and went to the limit to design a very high-end series of poker chips,”

Each of the new chips is individually serialized and made in limited runs of 500 chips per model. They have same quality and feel that you’d expect from a world-class casino chip with mirrored gold and glitter accents that differentiate these chips from anything GolfWRX has offered in the past.

Also available in the store are two new styles of GolfWRX bag tags in black/white and red/gray/white. They measure 3 inches tall and 2.75 inches wide, and are made from a high-quality PVC rubber that keeps them lightweight and gentle on your bag and clubs.

“We’ve had many GolfWRX Members contact us and say, ‘I wish there was an easy way to recognize a GolfWRXer from across the range or on the course,'” Audi said.  “We scour the professional tours every week, and we’re trying to offer limited runs of products that are of the highest quality to support our passionate membership.”

GolfWRX Rubber Bag Tag: $3.50 each

Along with the bag tags, the new store also includes new GolfWRX pins (1.5 inches wide) that are a more discreet way to show that you’re a GolfWRXer. The pins were inspired by the pins handed out to golfers as their credential for high-level tournaments.

“We went through some trouble making sure that the backing of the pins won’t stab you if you put it on your apparel, and that it won’t fall off your shirt, hat or golf bag,” Audi says.

The store also includes a new hat clip by Pitchfix with a removable GolfWRX ball marker. The clips are made from titanium-treated stainless steel that makes them resistant to scratches and rust, and they’re finished with a rubberized ABS rubber that makes sliding the ball marker off the clip a cinch.

GolfWRX Hat Clip: $5.95 each

Last, but not least is the famed GolfWRX divot tool/ball marker with our old school logo. The magnets on these are strong, so all you have to do is pick up your mark and toss it in your pocket and it’ll find the divot tool. The back side of the coin reads, “Better than most,” which we hope describes your putting that day.

GolfWRX Divot Tool/Ball Marker: $15.00 each

    I ordered a bag tag. I thought the sipping of $5.50 was too steep. It could be shipped for under $1.

    Hi there, I am in South Africa, can you ship items to me if I order on-line?

    Payment sent through PayPal. It’s been a week, when is my order shipping?

    My order is showing “Balance due” even though I already received an email from PayPal showing that I’ve paid?

    When I try to check out through PayPal, I get an error message that reads “Gateway Error: The totals of the cart item amounts do not match order amounts.” Something is messed up on your end as the order form does the multiplying, not me. Too bad, this is keeping me from buying. Nothing wrong from my end. Please fix. Its costing you missed sales.

      tried it again this morning. You cannot order more than 1 poker chip at a time, as it gives you the “gateway” error message. So, if I want to order 6, I have to order them 1 at a time, incurring 6 separate shipping charges. That doesn’t seem right.

        Is anyone from golfwrx.com monitoring comments about the problems people are having purchasing items on this website?

        It’s a great idea to sell stuff on your website. But, if it’s broken and people can’t purchase, wouldn’t you make an attempt to answer questions about it on your own internet site?

        • Jack

          Apr 27, 2014 at 9:03 pm

          I get the feeling that this is not something that’s been monitored at all.

    Went to buy the divot tool and it showed $21 to ship to Canada? Is that a mistake? You could ship a set of clubs to me for that! Can someone confirm please if $21 is the correct amount. Thanks!

    Glad to see that WRX is finally starting to branch out a bit. Kinda surprised it took this long, but better late than never. I think there are many other items that should be made available for purchase with the WRX branded logo, and maybe those things are in the immediate future, if not, I think you guys are missing out on a great opportunity to further market the WRX brand. Just my .02

    “Gateway Error: The totals of the cart item amounts do not match order amounts.”

    No idea how to fix that, but I do want some of those chips/bag tags!

      having the same issue. Cant get thru your checkout. Keep getting error messages that the total amount is wrong, but its not, and it won’t let me continue. its messed up.

    I take it you will sell world wide, unlike your give aways and competitions that are restricted to U S A only!!!!

      We do global giveaways and yes these ship global also.

        I just tried to checkout 4 poker chips and a divot tool but I live in Canada and the shipping charge is crazy! $21.00 USPS…come on guys.. It might cost half that to ship such a small package.

        • Dan

          Apr 17, 2014 at 2:00 pm

          Well you do live in the Great White North. Everything costs more to ship there…as would be the same if us Americans ordered something from Canada.

          • Scott

            Apr 19, 2014 at 8:21 pm

            Disagree. I have had stuff bigger shipped from Texas to Toronto for less. If a ball marker and divot tool, costs more than $7 I’d be surprised. Anyway no biggie, just seems high.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best fairway woods of 2019?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from pollock21, who opens the discussion concerning what are the best fairway woods of the latest releases. On the lookout for a new fairway wood, pollock21 asks for fellow members feedback on the new editions, and our members provide it in spades.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • chadly643: “I did some initial testing of all the main available options last weekend. They are all very close in terms of performance. Ballspeeds were all identical. Ping was definitely the highest flight. I disliked the Ping shape, however. Srixon was the best looking option and felt really good. The winner for me, however, was f9. Those rails really do offer something useful that the others don’t have. In all honesty, all the big manufacturers have a great option this year. You can’t make a mistake with any of them. It comes down purely to preference on looks and feel.”
  • JustinM: “The epic flash SZ fairways are great. I replaced my PXGs for these both 15 and 18 degrees. The head is small, and the face is tall if that makes sense. I’ve tested them all and a clear winner.”
  • Sh00terMcGavin: “I’m going to go with TEE CBX for best fairway. I will say that the Epic Flash sz does look mighty appealing to hit. Guys on TXG were raving about the ballspeeds it was producing for a fairway wood.”
  • Honman: “I’ve hit most of this year’s fairways, flash sub zero was by far the best on ball speed, and I like the feel. PXG was a good number two. G410 felt the most forgiving by a long way, but I couldn’t control the spin, and they didn’t have the LST to try. I think that would be a good head for me. In a separate session, I’ve hit the ST190 and was putting a good flight on that, dialled down to 14 and really liked the feel. The TaylorMade fairways both want to go really high this year.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “My experience gaming blades as a mid-high handicapper…”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Andus, who shared his interesting experience gaming blades as a mid/high handicapper…

“A few months ago, I decided to buy a Mizuno combo set. I’m gaming 4-6 MP-18 SC, and 7-PW MP-18 MB. All of them have Modus 3 120 X flex shafts. To be honest, I almost wish I went 4-PW in the MB because I don’t find the SC to be any more forgiving than the MB; however, the feel is on par I’d say. My swing speed with driver is about 110MPH and with a seven iron is around 93MPH.

I was a pretty decent ball striker, but my handicap was awfully high due to my short game (putting & within 50 yards). I am a complete sucker for looks & feel, and those two attributes are probably most important to me when choosing clubs to play. With that said, the switch from GI irons to blades has been amazing for me. I personally don’t buy into the whole “forgiveness” thing too much. Sure, a big fat hunk of metal with much more toe weighting might help you pull a few more yards out of a mishit, but the reality is, regardless of the iron you’re playing the shot is going to be a bad shot whether you get five extra yards or not. Nevertheless, these irons have helped me find the middle of the club more often than not, and best of all have inspired me to play golf even more. Every time I see these irons in my golf bag, I can’t help myself put to go pull one out and just admire the beauty (I know, I’m a loser). Anyway, my point in writing this is to hopefully inspire somebody else on the fence about blades to give them a try. If you have any other specific questions, ask away!”

The post has garnered plenty of reaction from our members, who have been giving their advice and opinions to those mid/high handicappers out there who have been considering a switch to blades.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • bub72ck: “We get this topic frequently, and I have to say I disagree. “Good” ball striking is a very relative term depending on what you are looking to get out of your game. If you find enjoyment out of that perfectly struck shot from a blade that’s awesome, but to sluff off forgiveness between MBs and CBs is really painting with a broad brush. I don’t know what your handicap is (you only said mid-high), but I am not sure you know what consistently finding the center of the club is. I don’t think I do either. A round of golf for most anyone, save the top players in the world, is about consistency and quality of mis-hits. Losing 5 yards on a mis-hit shot is the difference between being on the green and off, or in a bunker, or in a water hazard. You said that your short game was weak. That weakness is going to be magnified by missed greens and further distance from the hole. The bottom line is you can do whatever you wish with your game, but more than likely playing blades is costing you strokes.”
  • Bimmer1: “I think about this topic often. Back in the early 80’s blades were pretty much all we had. As a 10-year-old in 1980, I started with blades and played my best golf a few years later as the high school team captain shooting in the mid-’70s with Wilson FG-17’s. A lot of great golfers started out as beginners using blades. There were no alternatives until Ping, Daiwa, and some others started making cavity backs.”
  • Lefty96: “There is nothing wrong with playing blades if they simply bring more enjoyment to your game. Whether that’s because you like the way the feel/look at address, or because you just like being “able” to play blades. But, if you get more enjoyment out of shooting your best score, then you may want to consider making a change. Like people above have pointed out, you’ll just hit more greens with a GI or players GI club then you will with blades. If score isn’t really important to you, by all means, keep playing the blades. They will give you a hell of a lot of feedback about your strike and maybe you’ll even learn to find the middle of the face more often because of it. Most importantly enjoy golf! They are a pretty set of sticks!”

Forum Thread of the Day: “How big of a role does coming from money play in making it as a pro golfer?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from J2putts who opens the discussion asking just how important coming from money is to join the PGA Tour. Our members discuss how money, more than other sports, helps those achieve Tour status and whether or not superior talent loses out to players with decent ability and unlimited funds.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • lumberman2462: “Deep pockets early will always have an advantage in golf.  Premium instruction at an early age means kids with means will win earlier and develop the game and confidence that will carry through to a successful career. Here’s the deal, I’ve been around golf for 40 of my 48 years…and I’ve seen it all.  Kids that grew up with not much money beating the ever living $@&” out of rich kids and seeing young players with some means at their disposal becoming good players- but not great.  The junior tours are full of the sons and daughters of Doctors, Dentists, Lawyers and whatever successful profession you can dream up… Some become ok players, and others flame out. I can’t condemn a kid because his Dad started a computer company…you still have to hit the shots and make the putts.
  • Bye: “They still have to put a score together over four days, but it can’t be understated how big an advantage it is. It costs a lot to play full time let alone paying to live as well. Being able to travel to warmer places to play and compete all year round is one of the biggest advantages.”
  • straightshot7: “Deep talent, desire and work ethic is waaaay more important. Look up all the stories of guys who hit balls in the backyard, garage into a mattress, etc.  If you have the game people will back you, too. I think you’d be really hard pressed to find a guy who had a world class game but didn’t make it because of lack of money. Unless he refused to be sponsored and quit. But that’s a choice that stopped him.  Those guys on YouTube you referenced aren’t firing 65’s on a routine basis in tournaments. Their game is what’s stopping them.  Show me someone who can consistently shoot 65-69 in tournaments, and I’ll show you 5000 guys who will sponsor his way through Q School.”
  • Shawn Paul: “I always wanted to play golf as a kid, but golf was expensive.  Neither my father or mother played golf.  I played football, basketball, baseball and ran track.  All of these sports were not expensive to play.  Eventually, my Dad’s boss gave him some old hand me down snake killers and a 5-gallon bucket of balls.  It helped me to get started, but it wasn’t until I was 21 that I played golf on an actual course. From there I didn’t start golfing for real until I was 32 years old because, in my circle of friends, nobody played golf.  In my experience, money can certainly make the difference to get started in golf.  I wanted to play my entire life but couldn’t until I had not only the means but the pipeline of friends and contacts to do so.  My son’s been playing since he was 6, now 12.  He has the head start I never had!”
