Published

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: “Ball in the thick rough – what club to use?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from jjfcpa who asks fellow members what their preferred choice of club is when their ball is in thick rough. A variety of irons and hybrids are mentioned by our members who delve into the discussion of course management.

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.

  • RainShadow: “For me, that sot would be a 7 iron, open the face a little and play a runner up to the front of the green. Open face will help a bit with getting stuck in the grass.”
  • golfgirlrobin: “Club choice depends on whether you’re willing to accept a bogey or whether you insist on making double.”
  • ChipNRun: “I would try a hinge and hold action. Take a half swing with plenty of hinge action and punch down on the ball with limited follow-through. Use the big muscles of the shoulders – you don’t want to hurt yourself trying to muscle it. Probably choose something between a PW and a 7i. You’ll need to hold firmly with L hand, so the grass doesn’t wrap around the hosel and deloft the club face.”
  • kcd38: “If it is 200 plus from the green and a decent lie, hybrid. If it is less than 200 from the green and sunk down a little, I usually go with my 8 iron and play the face slightly open knowing the grass will grab the hosel and shut the face. Definitely need some speed to get out of the thick stuff.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Pat Perez loses his head on the range”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Yanki01 who showcased a bizarre incident on the range at Bethpage Black. Hitting a drive, Pat Perez sees his driver head fly off, and our members have been discussing the incident as well as Perez’ priceless reaction.

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.

  • MidWestGolfBum: “The look of pure confusion from PP made that all the better. Just looks back with a “well, now what” type expression.”
  • dirt nasty: “Its more fun when you have to get the entire range to stop hitting balls so you can go fetch it.”
  • thevaporz: “It happens to everyone! I had to do that once. Also had a buddy new to the game let go of and fling his driver completely over the left side range netting into a tall tree. Going, going, gone! We couldn’t stop laughing after that one. Maintenance crew got it down for him a few days later. This game is awesome.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Spikeless golf shoe recommendations”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Austincountyag who is on the hunt for a pair of spikeless golf shoes. Conservative, not flashy, is what Austincountyag has stated as his preference, and our members have been giving their recommendations.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire thread and have your say at the link below.

  • 3fiddyz: “Love my Eccos but enjoying the grip of my Adidas 360 spikeless more at the moment.”
  • Rift2g: “I really enjoyed my AdiPure spikeless, I really like the boost the entire length, I wore them in the shop and the course, my dad also enjoyed his new sketchers go golf’s and said he would recommend them as well, Both around that $100 mark I believe.”
  • jwortsman: “Check out the G-Fore or G-Fore/Peter Millar collaborations. Very classic and goes with the style you’ve referenced. There are a ton of them on eBay right now. They’re very comfortable and offer great traction. Biggest complaint is that they pick up everything, but keep a solid grip.”
  • farmer: “Ecco’s. I have owned several pairs of True’s, and after the originals, each generation was successively less comfortable. No experience with Puma, except for socks, which are excellent.”
