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?

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: “Your last ever set of irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Nickc who asks fellow WRXers what they would choose if their next set of irons were the last clubs they could use. Some of our members mention a range of different irons which they would love to splash out on, while others choose between a set of clubs already in their possession.

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.

  • cfasucks: “If I had only 1 set to play with for the rest of my life it would probably be my 845s. They are great feeling and forgiving when I’m not at the top of my game, and they’re built like tanks.”
  • kekoa: “At this point, I’d have to choose Seven MB’s. At a price tag of about $4,000 4-PW I wouldn’t be able to afford another set.”
  • bodhi555: “That would be my VR Pros, as they do everything I need an iron to do. Feel awesome, let me get away with not being precisely on the centre of the face, look great and seem to go as far as some distance irons I’ve tried.”
  • Lumberjack627: “Think I’m going to get 790s, and that would be it for me.”
