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

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best “5-woods under $125”

Published

on

@golfexchangeapp

In our forums, our members have been discussing 5-woods, with WRXer ‘gary3aces’ looking for a 5-wood for between $100 and $125. He’s looking to replace his current “M2 5 wood with something a little easier to hit”, and our members have been discussing the best options in our forum.

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.

  • C6 Snowboarder: “Take a look at a used Callaway Heavenwood in the Epic Flash model = pretty Friggen sweet. It is Heaven!”
  • Golf64: “Bang for the buck, hard to beat Cobra, but find Ping one of the easiest to hit off the deck. Since you are limited in the funds dept., maybe an older model Ping 5W would do the trick?!”
  • tilasan1: “G400 7 wood turned down or just use it as is.”
  • jbandalo: “Fusion fairways. Highly underrated, cheap, easy to hit and go for miles.”
  • RyanBarathWRX: “PING G fairway would be hard to beat and easily in price range:
  • Nelson.br.1515: “Another vote for the Callaway Big Bertha Fusion. Great stick!”

What GolfWRXers are saying about “blending Ping i500 irons with Blueprints”

Published

on

In our forums, WRXer ‘ballywho27’ has asked for thoughts on combining his current Ping i500 irons with the brand’s Blueprint irons. ‘Ballywho27’ is considering going “i500 in 3-4 iron and blueprint 5-W” and has asked for fellow member’s thoughts on the idea – who have been sharing their takes in our forum.

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.

  • jblough99: “I had a combo set for a minute, 3-5 I500 and 6-PW Blueprint. I could not get used to the transition, HUGE difference in looks at address. If I had it to do over I would just go 4-PW Blueprint and maybe a 3 I500 with graphite shaft as a driving, iron.”
  • animalgolfs: “iBlade{5i} – BP{6i-pw}. That’s my combo.”
  • Chunky: “I have i500 4-5 and Blueprints 6-PW. As mentioned above, there is a significantly different look at address. More importantly for me, the i500s are 1/2 to 1 club longer than the BPs (they fly much higher, too). Make sure you account for that added i500 distance when blending lofts or you’ll have a large gap.”
  • howeber: “I’ve done that exact set — 3 and 4 i500 and 5-PW Blueprint. It’s perfect for me since the 3 and 4 are more like a traditional 2 and 3.5. 4 is usually the longest iron I carry, so I like a little extra oomph out of it. At the end of the day though, when I finally tested them vs my MP4s, the Blueprints performed identically, while the i500 launched a little higher (same specs same shafts). Mizzys are still in the bag.”

What GolfWRXers are calling the “best non-Tiger performance from the Tiger-era”

Published

on

@bet365

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best non-Tiger performance from the Tiger-era. WRXer ‘the bishop’ kicks off the thread with his two candidates:

“2005 Accenture Match Play. Winner: David Toms. Anybody who thought Toms couldn’t dominate an event should have watched this one as he basically stomped everybody in his way to earn the title. One of the more underrated performances of this era IMO.

2007 Masters. Winner: Zach Johnson. To be clear, this was not the most scintillating Masters of all time. Far from it. But it was a master class by a guy who knew his strengths, weaknesses and limitations and had the discipline to stick to a game plan for 72 holes when there may have been a lot of temptation to do otherwise.”

Our members have been having their say in our forums, with plenty of memorable performances from the Tiger-era receiving recognition.

  • cdngolf: “Stephen Ames, 2006 Players. Dusts the field in the fifth major by 6. And only a few weeks after Tiger beat him 5 & 16 or whatever it was in the match play. Vijay, 2004. I don’t think people fully appreciate how incredible 9(!) wins in a season is.”
  • Old Tom Morris: “Zach Johnson had a great week in very unusual conditions for the Masters. Well done there. Retief Goosen managed two US Open victories in the middle of Tiger’s dominance.”
  • grm24: “Phil Mickelson winning the 2006 BellSouth Classic by 13 shots a week before he won his 2nd Masters.”
  • Hawkeye77: “Stenson, Open Championship, 2016.”
  • iBanesto: “Y.E. Yang an underrated victory. Only man ever to overhaul to beat Tiger, when Tiger held the 54 hole lead in a major. This was before the downfall.”
  • dan360: “Angel Cabrera, with a cigarette in one hand and brisket in the other…twice.”
