How much have you spent on your current gamer bag?

Embarrassed? Proud? Merely contributing to the gathering of data? There are many reasons WRXers have added to the thread Griff721 started back in 2008. And with 53 pages of replies and going strong, this thread is one of the archives.

Back in 2008, Griff estimated he’d sunk $2,100 into his current setup (which included a Cleveland HiBore, remember them?). To see how things have changed (or haven’t) since then, and what the majority of the community spends on artillery, check out this awesome thread.

Golf brands as car companies

Titleist-Logo1

Nobody said Saturn? C. Howard started this entertaining, amusing, and dare we say, thoughtful, thread trying to equate major OEMs to car companies. Here are a couple of his takes, which you may or may not agree with.

Titleist – Mercedes Benz: High-end budget buster. Just like Mercedes, you don’t see an affordable one unless it is old. Heck, look at the 915 just getting price cut to $350! Titleist positioned themselves as the brand you want to attain some day (at least in my case).

Taylormade – Ford: Okay, I debated a couple companies, but I was reminded of the F150. Ford sells an F150 every 30 seconds and is all about quantity. They don’t match Taylormade’s desire for new models every 6 months, but still seems like a fit.

Nike – Kia/Hyundai: That younger company that had issues with quality for a long time, but is pushing to become a high-end brand. Sleek modern looks and trying to defeat the view from the masses.

You’ll want to see what the rest of the community is saying, and now that you’ve been exposed to the question, you’ll have no choice but to play the matching game yourself.

Circle-Ts galore!

WRXer Mitchell’s Circle-T Laguna

Some GolfWRXers have museum-quality collections of golf equipment, and among the most superb pieces on the market (sort-of) currently: Scotty Cameron tour-issued putters. There’s not really much to say about this thread of WRXers’ Circle-Ts other than check out this NSFW golfporn immediately. (rebby’s in the featured image)

See the putters.

Three “most talented” golfers in the game?

Here’s a hot debate: Who are the three most naturally talented golfers playing right now?

JD3, who started the thread, offered Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson, and Michelle Wie.

Forum Thread of the Day: “What would happen if PGA Tour players played with a $1 ball?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from BB28403 who created an interesting hypothetical scenario for our members to discuss. BB28403 asks what GolfWRX members feel would happen if half of the PGA Tour field in an event played a $1 ball, and the rest their usual premium golf balls.

Here’s a look at some of the posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • MattyO1984: “Depends on the course. If they were playing on a links course, I think they could make it work. There aren’t many forced carries, and you can run the ball into the greens. I seem to remember back in the 70’s and 80’s talk of players changing when they came over for The Open for that reason. The harder ball back then would defnitely go further than the old balata’s, and they didn’t need the spin to attack the pins.”
  • TheLarch: “There would be zero lost balls.  I can lose a new PV1x in the first three holes.  A Pinnacle or Top Flite, like Geraldo Rivera, refuses to ever go away.”
  • farmer: “Given time to adapt to a Duo or Pinnacle, they would figure out a way to play.  Distance not being an issue, maybe irons with weaker lofts to come in softer, run the ball up?  Scores would probably go up, but the skill level might overcome the ball limitations.
  • GMR: “There would be a lot of shots lost around the greens.  When chipping from above the hole, there would be virtually no way to stop the ball on the firm/fast greens they play without some degree of greenside spin.  Longer hitters would be disproportionately advantaged by having shorter approaches with some prayer of actually stopping the balls on the greens by hitting high spinny (relatively) wedges into the greens.  As mentioned previously it would, of course, depend on the course setup though, as on links courses it would make very little difference given they allow you to run the ball and are generally set up with significantly slower (but still rock hard) greens.  On a typical PGA Tour setup though…forget it.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “The hunt for the perfect 5-wood”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from keithrichards, who is looking to add a 5-wood to his bag. Good elevation off the deck is a crucial requirement in his search, and ignoring the latest lines, our members discuss what 5-wood they believe is the best option.

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.

  • uwhockey14: “Sonartec, 19* is an awesome club with the right shaft in it. Excellent off the deck! Only 5-Wood I’ve been able to be somewhat consistent with as I played 2-Iron for years and years and struggle with hybrids!”
  • mwink822: “I like my Titleist 917 F2 from all areas (tee, fairway and rough).  The Ping G400 was also a good performer, but I hated the way it looked behind the ball.  The Callaway Steelhead XR is also a good option, but I elected not to go that avenue myself as the 5-wood has a slightly closed (to my eyes anyway) appearance at address.”
  • mowakebum: “G400 5 wood, easy to hit, put it in the bag last year and it’s in no danger of being replaced. Point and shoot full send.”
  • Mitchell: “In a 5-wood, still very difficult to beat a V steel with the appropriate shaft for your stated needs in a non-adjustable.In adjustable, the various Cobra clubs with baffler rail system would be a great place to start, f6 baffler is phenomenal out of rough.”
