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.

Lead tape magic…or not?

LT-75IN-HD-01

WRXer L3fty writes about his stripeshow peformance at the range after putting lead tape on his irons. Placebo effect, magic of the small sample size, or has he found something that works, he wonders. See if WRXers have had similar experiences and what they have to say. Check out the thread.

Favorite random golf accessory?

snow-driveway-markers-600

Here’s a good thread: Ask some of the most enthusiastic equipment enthusiasts what their favorite non-golf ball, non-club, non-clothing piece of golf gear is, and why, as pinestreetgolf does in this thread. From stinky towels to training aids, to a beat up scorecard holder, the replies have it all. Check out the thread.

Third-best golfer ever?

Sam_Snead_1967

Outside of the Tiger vs. Jack debate, there’s another very interesting question to ask in an effort to power rank the finest players the game has seen. But as we virtually all agree that some combination of Woods-Nicklaus top the list, it begs the question: Who is No. 3? Snead? Hogan? Palmer? Jones? See the debate in this thread.

Results don’t match the quality of the swing

Charles-Howell-III

Best should probably read “best” in this thread, but it’s an interesting question. We know the Jim Furyk’s of the world who have gotten great results with “bad” golf swings. But who fits the bill at the opposite end of the spectrum: Beautiful swings that haven’t gotten the job done in a big way? See the thread.

The triumphant return of The Hammer!

jack-hammer-boom-drive

The greatest product in golf history is back. Jack Hamm unveiled the 2017 edition of The Hammer, the driver that (as far as we know) has never seen a sub-400-yard drive since product launch. Click through for the latest Hammer infomercial and see what praise WRXers are heaping on this non-conforming marvel of R&D. See the thread.

    Moe Norman

    He made one of the greatest golf instruction videos ever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oODSnTNXg1g

      Actually, subsequent analysis of Moe’s swing has shown that he wasn’t doing what he thought he was doing, so not, I will not second what Moe said.

      So, that means you are way too old to be on here commenting on things. Why don’t you have some respect for yourself and stop with this nonsense ranting

When to buy irons such as Miura? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Miura irons. WRXer ‘Twists’ has recently picked up golf, and asks members if the brand’s clubs “require a certain skill-level to play them well? (Or well enough not to slow down the game or get frustrated…)”. And our members have been having their say.

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.

  • Nessism: “There is nothing wrong with owning more than one set. Use your full on GI set for everyday play/practice and get the Miura’s to grow into and/or play just because. The type of iron one plays isn’t super important so long as the clubs fit them physically in terms of length and overall weight. The PP-9003 are my suggestion. They are midsized and offer some real help in terms of forgiveness, but they are Miura’s through and through with impeccable build quality and beauty. This model has been discontinued, so now is the time to grab them. Find yourself a clubmaker when you are ready and have them built up to your liking. I’ve got a set and count it as one of my better purchases.”
  • LeoLeo99: “Spotted my first ever sighting of Miura irons out in the wild last week. They were a cavity back model. Looked pretty nice. You can go with Miura or buy an older classic set and see if that type of iron appeals to you and your game. The older Hogan, Wilson, MacGregor, RAM, and other makes blades are plentiful and cheap in the used club market on eBay.”
  • theebdk: “Have you looked at the Miura IC-601? I am going for a fitting soon and will try these plus a few others. Looks like a blade but it is advertised as a game improvement iron. Be aware it is cast, has a thick top line and plenty of offset. I saw it in person at my fitter but have not tried it yet.”
  • Uncut: “Depends on your goals and how athletic you are. If you are the type that will put the time in required to improve your ball striking, then go for it. Do you have a decent swing with decent ball striking already when it comes to your irons? If you’ve got a reasonable starting point, then I say go for it. Set your expectations and work towards the goal. I went from playing some old cast Nike CCi irons to Srixon z585 to forged Miura TC-201. Not a blade, but still was a little intimidating for someone that routinely shoots in the low and mid-90s. I went from mild GI cavity back irons to an iron that is a players “tour cavity” back that requires some game. My biggest complaint with full GI irons is that you can’t hold firm greens as well (due to lack of spin), and less feeling of control. Distance is always good with GI irons, but sometimes you want a little more feel and control and ability to shape a creative shot. I have been playing tennis for about five years seriously, and I quickly advanced to the point where I needed a more players racquet with more “feel”. You can only go so far with a 110 sq inch racquet if you advance beyond a certain point and want to start learning new skills. I think golf is that way. Life is short, play the irons you want and put in the work you need to gel with them. It’s going to be frustrating at first, but expect it to possibly take years of work to game them to their full potential.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about replacing a 4-iron with a utility iron

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing utility irons after WRXer ‘jas904’ revealed he’s thinking about switching out his 4-iron. ‘Jas904’ asks for the thoughts of his fellow members as well as recommendations for the best utility irons currently on the market, and WRXers have been responding.

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.

  • BiggiE427: “I’ve been gaming the cobra king utility with rogue Aldila shaft, and I have loved it. Great forgiveness, flight and feel for me. Easy to hit different shots as well. Currently awaiting a Mizzy hmb that I hit just as well if not better.”
  • Chuck905: “I’d recommend the Srixon if you can get past the looks and take on the forgiveness. I’m currently on the ping G410 crossover; I like the stinger flight, but it’s not as good feeling nor forgiving as my Srixon.”
  • Myherorbobhope: “Sub70 is worth a look if you are on a budget. Great club.”
  • gripandrip: “I have a 20 deg U45 that stays in the closet. While I like the feel and performance of the head, I’ve never truly gotten along with the stock Nippon shaft. I prefer my Z745 3 iron with the SF i95S. I’ve been meaning to change out the shaft, just haven’t gotten to it. It is a little longer than my 3 iron, so I can’t decide if I should match the length and swing weight of the 3 iron or something else. Hence the inaction. I would say the driving irons are good clubs if you are looking for a hybrid that is an “iron”, but I believe you need to find the right shaft.”
  • PowerCobra98: “X Forged UT…Recoil Shaft…Love it.”

What’s the best mid-round snack? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been debating the best snack to have mid-round on the course. WRXer ‘mxskier’ put out the question and our members have shown a wide variety of tastes in response.

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.

  • phi482: “Miller Lite, about 6 of them.”
  • Ereim: “Our course has Ritz Crackers with Port Wine Cheese and Peanut butter at the “long barn” which you pass through 3 times during a round.”
  • DREWZER300: “Homemade beef jerky.”
  • kwcsports: “PB & J”
  • getitdaily: “Peanut butter crackers..2 packs. Very low sugar. Some carbs, good amount of fat. Combine them with a cold beer!”
  • MattM97: ” I usually bring two sandwiches, either some variation of PB&J, PB w/honey & banana, PB&Hazelnut Spread or Cold Cuts. Cut them in half and snack on those throughout the round, sometimes eat them early, sometimes they last but way better than chips or crackers. Can’t drop 300 yards bomb on crackers.”
