The GolfWRX forums exist so golfers have access to the latest equipment releases, hottest discussions, real equipment reviews, best instruction, new technologies and everything golf you can imagine. So if you love golf, the GolfWRX forums are your sanctuary.
In the From the Forums weekly feature, we bring you the hottest, most buzz-worthy topics from our forums for your convenience. I’ll be your trusty tour guide to navigate the latest buzz. Here’s a peek behind the curtain into golf’s sanctuary.
Total Bag Overhaul for 2017
Sounds like WRXer PerserveringGolf is no longer persevering with the same equipment for 2017. He writes that in light of an increasing handicap, he’s totally overhauling his bag, adding the classic advice: “If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always get what you’ve always gotten.”
As you’d expect, many in forums are making similar efforts. See how WRXers are switching it up.
Diamonds in the Rough
Love this thread. For as often as we research the best weaponry, demo it, and end up put it in the bag, you can never predict when you’ll find a diamond in the rough. This collection of WRXers’ stories of unexpected game-changing equipment is must-read stuff. Check out the thread.
Stiffest Shaft You’ve Ever Hit?
Ever tried hitting an adamantium shaft? (X-Men joke). But seriously, here’s a fun one: Tyler Harris asks, “What’s the stiffest shaft you ever hit, and what did it feel like?” The replies are entertaining and very funny. See the thread.
Expired Pebble Beach Ams
With the peculiarity that is the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am now in our rearview, it’s not too soon to suggest (as TM_Hoyer does) which amateurs we’d rather not see any more of. On a personal level, Chris Berman comes to mind. For Hoyer, Gary Mule Deer ought to trot off a California cliff.
Check out the thread for plenty of hot takes and the usual split on the matter of Bill Murray.
Never Too Early for Major Predictions
If you haven’t checked the calendar recently, the Masters is fewer than 60 days away. And with a decent sampling of player form at our disposal (thanks wraparound season), it’s not too soon to start talking about who’s going to be favored at Augusta. And if you give a golf fan a Masters prediction, he’s going to want to discuss the winners of the U.S. Open, Open Championship and PGA Championship.
Check out the thread for all the early prognostication you can handle.
