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: “Why Adam Scott believes driving is no longer a skill on tour”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from KrazyTrain18 who created a discussion dedicated to Adam Scott’s comments that the art of driving will disappear unless officials build “smarter golf courses.”

Scott was speaking to the AAP following his third round at the BMW Championship where he stated

“They haven’t figured out yet that long means nothing to us; you can’t build it long enough. I’m not (surprised to see low scores at Medinah); if a golf course is soft we are just going to tear it apart.   I’m not challenging (PGA Tour officials and course designers) to build longer golf courses; I’m challenging them to build smarter golf courses. If you require us to shape tee shots to get it in play we’re going to struggle.

“(Now) we just play straight, everything is straight. While there is an option to go over trees and over bunkers, it is just relentless. The driver is the most forgiving club in the bag now; it’s just swing as hard as you can and get it down there far. It’s not a skilful part of the game anymore and it’s really unfair for some guys who are great drivers of the golf ball. I don’t think their talents are showing up as much as they should.”

Here are what some our members have been saying in our forum concerning Scott’s comments, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JaNelson38: “Been saying it here for a long time – shorter courses with more angles and hazards to make landing areas less accessible and poor shots penalized.”
  • imakaveli: “Thanks Adam Scott for telling the truth they don’t want to accept. Apart for some rare exceptions course we see every week are dull and lead to boring tournaments.”
  • dlygrisse: “Roll back COR. Huge mistake by USGA, the long hitters picked up 50 yards, the short hitter maybe 1/2 that.  Make the ball spin more off the driver. If the ball spun off the driver like it did with balata it would reduce the high flat bombs and make them work the ball and reduce carry and rollout. You used to have to make a decision with the ball. Do I pick a ball with spin, or distance? Now you get both. Playing a soft cover ball should add 1000 rpms to the driver.”
  • el_b00t: “Rollback drivers, everyone plays the same ball, and let the rough grow in certain areas to penalize the long hitters that are off-target. I believe they touched on this in the Trap Draw podcast ‘commissioner for a day’.”
