FTF: You know a golfer’s lying about his game when…

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.

The Clubs That Made You Brand Loyal

Where does brand loyalty begin? Casey-0507 essentially poses that question by asking WRXers what club/clubs inspired loyalty to a particular OEM. Of course, some members have no allegiances whatsoever, but for the “Ping guys” or “Titleist guys” of the golf world, it’s an interesting thread. See the thread.

Equipment You Always Buy New (Or Used)

Golfers are a finicky bunch, no doubt. So the fact that this particularity extends to purchase patterns shouldn’t come as a surprise. Golf equipment is also an arena of rapid depreciation of value, so it’s interesting to see what WRXers insist on buying new and what they’d rather save a buck on and buy used. See the thread.

Least Favorite Design Feature on a Golf Hole

We don’t talk about course design in FTF, and that’s a shame, because there are related hot takes and strong opinions aplenty. Larrybud, who started the thread, says he finds forced layups off the tee on long par-4s particularly irksome (no argument there).

Some great points about frustrating design elements in this one. See the thread.

You Know a Golfer’s Lying About His Game When…

Now, golf-related stories don’t approach fishing tales in their general level of embellishment, but we’ve all heard a tale or two that sounded a bit suspect. SixtySomePing kicked off this thread dedicated to golfers’ tall tales.

(And with respect to the featured image, we’re certainly not calling Anirban Lahiri a liar, the picture just looked right!) See the thread.

Not Enough Club

RSinSG shares his observations working at a golf course edging bunkers. As such, he gets to see a wealth of golfer approach shots. And by his calculations, 95 percent of golfers don’t take enough club.

Sure, everyone wants to hit their 9-iron 150, but is there an epidemic of golfers thinking they hit it farther than they do? See the thread.

    A golfer is lying about his game if he is speaking.

      I’d have said “alive”, as this would include typing, dreaming and thinking as well.

    When they record 3 triples on the front 9, and tell you “I shot 4 over last week on vacation at Pine Valley! Yeah, sure you did, maybe you shot 4 over after the 1st hole!!

    So, basically the article is saying every golfer lies about their game because every golfer falls somewhere in those categories.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Your last ever set of irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Nickc who asks fellow WRXers what they would choose if their next set of irons were the last clubs they could use. Some of our members mention a range of different irons which they would love to splash out on, while others choose between a set of clubs already in their possession.

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.

  • cfasucks: “If I had only 1 set to play with for the rest of my life it would probably be my 845s. They are great feeling and forgiving when I’m not at the top of my game, and they’re built like tanks.”
  • kekoa: “At this point, I’d have to choose Seven MB’s. At a price tag of about $4,000 4-PW I wouldn’t be able to afford another set.”
  • bodhi555: “That would be my VR Pros, as they do everything I need an iron to do. Feel awesome, let me get away with not being precisely on the centre of the face, look great and seem to go as far as some distance irons I’ve tried.”
  • Lumberjack627: “Think I’m going to get 790s, and that would be it for me.”
