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

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best budget driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Ivyguy who is on the lookout for the best driver to be had at an affordable price ($300 or less). Our members give their suggestions, with plenty of different drivers getting 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.

  • tbsbama: “Cobra King LTD is a wonderful driver. The pro model has lofts from 7 to 10 with fade settings. The regular from 9 to 12 with draw settings. Both heads are absolute bombers and can be found pretty cheap. Best driver I have hit in several years.”
  • zzyzxx33: “I won a Tour Edge EXS Driver, and it has been Awesome! Great Price, Look, Sound and Results! It’s longer than anything else I’ve hit.”
  • AG12: “I would say the regular PING G400…you can get new for $300 on PGA SS website, ’17 M2 is a good choice, and the M4 can be had at under $300 used in most shops.”
  • Badshaft: “I have the F8+ and bought the extra weights off of eBay (inexpensive, shipped from China)- 12g front 7g back- Blue Tensei 70g stiff. Longest for me – straight and as accurate as anything. Nice well-balanced combo. Looks to me it has the same moveable weight strategy as the F9.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Found a unicorn after six years of looking!”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from kgeorge78 who is celebrating his acquisition of “Unicorn” clubs after six years of searching, and I think it’s fair to say that he’s more than a little excited with the purchase:

“BAM! MP53 ALL STOCK S300 NEW IN PLASTIC GRIPS IN PLASTIC!!!!!!!! Just wanted to share my joy.”

Our members have been discussing the clubs as well as their continued search for unicorn clubs in our forums. Check out the full forum thread below to have your say on kgeorge78’s find.

  • flogpro2252: “Funny, I just bought a set of 53s on Kijiji today. Very minty condition (don’t look to have more than 30 rounds on them) w/ KBS Tour stiffs. Can’t wait to give them a go tonight, absolutely great looking irons. Congrats on the purchase OP!”
  • hardcaliber: “I also recently found a nice set of these. Gonna swap out the shafts sometime this summer and give them a run. My all-time favorite irons are the MP-15’s. Between hoarding older classics and the new mp series out later this year, I’ll be spending a lot of money on the running bird.”
  • storms: “Congrats, man. I loved my mp53s before I sold them to my buddy. He still plays them. Honestly still kick myself for getting rid of them some days.”
  • elwhippy: “Two words. Feel. Control. A great set of clubs.”
