FTF: What Should A Caddie’s Role Be?

Published

on

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.

Brand loyal…or nah?

WRXer mizuno2 (can you guess his stance?) poses the question: Are you brand loyal or not so much with your golf equipment? Could there possibly be value for your game in playing equipment from one maker? Great discussion here. See the thread.

Should The Players take the PGA’s spot?

TPCsawgrasswedge

Outlier both proposes The Players Championship should overtake the PGA among the four majors on the PGA Tour AND suggests there will be a major in Asia within 10 years. Genius? Insanity? Plenty of hot takes in this one. See the thread.

Most complete player under 30

Jonsnow takes a break from the Night’s Watch to ponder who the most complete player under 30 is. His suggestion is an interesting one: Thomas Pieters. The idea that Pieters is a more complete player than, say, Jordan Spieth wasn’t exactly well received, and there’s plenty of great back and forth in this one. See the thread.  

The role of caddies 

U.S. Open - Final Round

One of the great questions in golf: How important is a good caddie and what should the role of a caddie be? Does a good caddie help read putts or plot strategy? Should he? MaddMaxx isn’t a fan of big-time caddie involvement, ala Bones or Michael Greller, and he makes his case to kick off this thread. See the thread.

Running shoes instead of golf shoes

J2putts tells this story:

“I have a pinched nerve in my front foot. I’ve spent HUNDREDS of dollars on just about every brand of golf shoe. When I’m at the range ..I wear running shoes and I can hit balls for an hour with no pain. The problem comes when I’m at the course. When I have golf shoes ( spikeless) they cause my front foot to grab too much and I get pain when my weight transfers over to my front foot.”

He wonders if golf shoes are more trouble than they’re worth for some golfers. Especially in an age where most shoes look like sneakers anyway. A good discussion. See the thread.

Forum Thread of the Day: “What has made it into your bag so far in 2019?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day discusses new equipment that has made it into the bags of our members so far in 2019. From new club additions to shaft changes, our members share the tweaks they have made so far this year and divulge what has been successful as well as what has failed to work for them.

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.

  • Jackal66: “Went from 816 DBD Alpha driver to M3. Changed Odyssey Fang putter to Scotty Cameron Newport putter. Bought a 56° wedge and it is competing with my 53° Diadic.”
  • ObiwanForAll: “Gone all in with TaylorMade clubs and UST shafts.”
  • macedan: “Successes- Ping G400 9*, thought the smaller head size may hamper my confidence, but It has performed beautifully. Mizuno ST180 16*, No words, performs as needed and looks absolutely sharp. Middle of the road- Ping G Crossover 21*, unfortunately, I fell into a swing slump across the bag not long after buying it. When my swing is on, it is one of my absolute favorites in the bag. My biggest complaint is just the appearance of the massive amount of offset.”
  • pollock21: “Been quite a year…TS3 knocked out my trusty G400 LST which was quite a feat. Now shafted with 130 Rogue Silver. I500 w/LZ 7.0 125’s experiment is on the way out. They’ve been excellent irons for me, but I just hit them obnoxiously long. Currently looking for my next set. Also dabbling with a hi-toe 60 to replace my trusty 60* Glide 2.0 stealth. So far, I’m loving it. Last change was putting in the copper spider x which knocked out my ketcsh and scotty newport 2.0.  Failed experiment so far with the flash sz fairway. Putting the trusty 16M2 back in the bag. Definitely moving on from the flash, I’m just not as consistent with it.”
  • shanx: “Took a lesson late spring and my ballstriking has improved. I ditched the Callaway X20 Pros, Cally X Forged ’07s, added Mizzy MP15s with C Taper Lites. Not sure if those shafts will work for me in the long run, but I am going to play them for a bit as I am still working on swing changes from the lesson. Rotating three drivers (2 Titleists and a Callaway Epic), thinking about going to get fit for my driver soon.”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases a custom Scotty Cameron flat-stick which has been turning heads in our forums. All facets of the putter have impressed our members who unsurprisingly would love to see the club become available at retail.

For more photos, check out the full forum thread here.

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.

  • Wdwfreak: “Just wish you could get one of these for less than a small fortune.”
  • PreppySlapCut: “Perfect.”
  • NoGimmes: “They (custom Scotty’s) are available from the California and Tokyo galleries, but as others have said, they cost a small fortune. I was at the Tokyo gallery recently, and there wasn’t a putter under $2500.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “One driver for the rest of your life – what would it be?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from DCMorgan89 who asks an intriguing question – if you could only play one driver for the rest of your life, what would it be? Our members weigh in with their choices, with plenty of different drivers receiving a mention.

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.

  • JDMRN81: “G400 Max with an AD TP shaft and it’s not even close! Incredibly forgiving, low spin with a laser mid-flight.”
  • Valtiel: “I’m someone who rarely changes drivers. Several years ago it would have been a 910D3 as well, and I still plan on building up another one sometime soon. I’m hoping it will be the Mizuno ST190, but we’ll see!”
  • LONGBALL777: “Callaway Big Berta Fusion. Straightest driver ever!”
  • regiwstruk: “ST190. Just has it all.”
