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.

The best super game-improvement irons of 2017

Steelhead_XR_Irons_Comparison_Back

Just like with players irons and game-improvement irons before them, we want to know what WRXers think are the best super game-improvement sticks are. Check out the thread for the details on how to share you impressions and be tallied for our Members’ Choice Award. See the thread.

Why do you play X?

The thread in question focuses on Titleist equipment. However, we could extend the question to other manufacturers as well. Why do you play what you do? A great (and essential) golf discussion. See the thread.

Clubs (in your bag) you avoid

We’ve talked at length in FTF about the clubs that have stuck around in your set forever, your favorite club to hit, etc. Now the opposite end of the spectrum. What club do you find yourself staying away from in your set? And don’t say there isn’t one, unless you’re a competitive golfer, you almost certainly reach for the 3-iron rather than the 5-wood, let’s say, because you prefer it, or vice versa.

Great discussion of a phenomenon that plagues almost all of us. See the thread.

Remarks on Nicklaus’ remarks

You can be forgiven if, amid the madness of the DUI Tiger narrative and continued revelations, you didn’t catch any of the highlights of Jack Nicklaus’ customary pre-Memorial press conference. Needless to say, the Golden Bear didn’t take kindly to Rory McIlroy’s initial commit-to-play-then-withdraw routine.

No shortage of interesting opinions on what the 18-time major champ had to say. See the thread.

Golf book collectors, unite!

    1 Had the 2015 callaway big bertha irons…
    They sucked, heads came unglued all the time and had bad hot spots. Eventually ended up the gmax 8-pw after playing g and i25… love em! I like the sf tec in em cuz I know the ball will never go left
    2 I’ll always play Ping cuz of left hand options
    3 Try to avoid the U wedge…
    Always seems to catch it barely heavy

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.”
