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.

Lost Club Karma

Bush Pilot tells what we hope isn’t a common tale. He, like most (hopefully all) of us, returns any clubs he finds on the course to the pro shop or finds the owner. Has done it many times. After losing his 56-degree wedge, however, he returned the course to search for it. Not finding it anywhere, it seems somebody made off with his weapon.

WRXers share similar tales of woe and mull over the injustice of the karmic golf sphere. See the thread.

The club you can’t get out of your bag

The one you just can’t quit. We’ve danced around this subject before in FTF, but this time we go right to the heart of the issue: the emotional attachment to a particular golf club. For wombat_vortex, it’s his Cleveland BeCu 60-degree, which he’s been gaming for a decade.

See what other readers are holding on to (occasionally without reason).

Best Mizuno irons ever?

MP-14? MP-33? 60? 67? What are the best irons from the iconic iron brand? Sooclean21 has done a great service to the WRX community with this question and the ensuing debate: What are the best Mizuno irons ever. Check out the thread.  

How many majors would Tiger have won?

tiger-woods-the-masters

One of golf’s eternal debates…but not exactly the one you think. Tcarrow asks, “Would Tiger have won as many majors against today’s fields?” It’s a welcome respite from the “How many majors would Tiger have won if he didn’t get hurt/mired in scandal?” debate. And like all great debates, there’s no clear right or wrong answer. Join the debate.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Most forgiving driving iron?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from aceo36 who asks fellow members for their choice of most forgiving driving iron. Plenty of different driving irons receive a mention, with Srixon’s U65 proving to be one of the most popular choices.

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.

  • Jwin323: “I just got a Ping G410 Crossover 2, and it’s pretty forgiving. Very easy to hit off the deck because of its sole camber.”
  • thekiwii: “The bigger, the more forgiving. The ping crossover series is probably the biggest. Adams DHy is very under the radar and underrated. You can hunt one down for cheap. Titleist TMB is small, but it has tungsten weighting to increase the forgiveness.”
  • arobbins3: “I play the Srixon U65, and it’s the most forgiving one I’ve played (T-MB, Taylormade, etc.).”
  • ScottJN: “I picked up the u85 on a whim, got the stock recoil shaft and it flies higher than I’d like on a typical shot.  However, the club is so easy to hit and an automatic 250 off the tee (2iron).”

Forum Thread of the Day: “How will Brooks Koepka’s 24lb weight loss affect his 2019 on the course?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Holy Moses who began the thread discussing Brooks Koepka’s recent weight loss which is rumored to be for an ESPN photo shoot. Koepka has stated how he is “out of sorts” on the course recently due to him dropping 24lbs, and our members have been speculating on the impact it could have on his season.

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.

  • MattyO1984: “Crazy that he would try and change his body so much for a photo shoot. If he were a model, you could understand it but as a golfer, who relies on his body being able to do what he needs it to do it’s madness and more than a little vain as well.”
  • Cool Runnings: “So Brook’s has lost 24lbs, and his driving/swing is suffering, isn’t this the opposite of what the ‘so called experts’ were religiously stating about players bulking up and it impeding their driving/swing. Yet more proof they’re talking about topics above their pay-grade”
  • Holy Moses: “Well, Brooks has been wondering why he hasn’t been getting media attention. He’s come out of his shell lately. Good for him.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Sexy, slick, minimal irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Glowbal who is on the lookout for sexy, slick, minimal irons ala Scratch Golf’s old SB-1 iron set. Clean, as little branding or markings as possible and lofts instead of numbers on the club, are all the things Glowbal wants from an iron set, and our members have been on hand sharing their suggestions.

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.

  • Fried Slice: “National Custom Works are Scratch. Same grinders and owners I believe. I’m sure they can hook you up. http://www.nationalcustomworks.com 
  • 11forgedblades: “When I was looking for irons without any logo, Geotech blades only had the numbers on them…completely blank.”
  • ivygynonc: “I have a set of Kyoei MB’s black.  They are nicer than my BBs as far as feel and looks.  Look great at set up.  Can’t go wrong with these.  And they are on the low end as far as costs for JDM blades, at least they were when I bought mine.”
  • kmay: “Another for National Custom works, incredible products, and from what I see watching there IG every day, they will make them to your exact requests, any stamping you want (or don’t) any shape muscle you want, sole grinds you want, seems like everything can be customized starting from forged blanks. True craftsmen.”
