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.
Best Hybrid: Old or New
“I’ve currently got the Titleist 910h in 19* and 24* and I’m thinking about making a switch. The question is, to what?” writes Turfmantim. His question leads to an excellent discussion about the best hybrids in the short history of that particular club. See the thread.
“I Designed My Own Blades”
Herbygolf21 dedicated this superb thread to his effort to create his own blades. Here’s what he was going for.
- Minimal offset
2. Thin “ish” top line
3. Raw finish
4. CG more towards toe than typical blades
5. Heel relief throughout the set
6. A sole that interacts in all types of turf and in dirt
To see the results and what WRXers had to say, check out the thread.
Instead of buying something new again, I decide to go Old School. I went to the basement and pulled out equipment that performed well for me in the past. The results are Fabulous. I am scoring again the way I feel I should, and more importantly, I know what each club in my bag will do. Even though I have given up some yards, (especially off the tee), I’m more consistent than I have been in a long time.”
He wonders if any WRXers have had similar experiences—and they have. Great discussion. And note, this is a very liberal application of the “old” in old school. See the thread.
What Have You Bought in 2017?
Comparing purchases (and calculating the extremity of one’s own addiction to golf equipment) is one of the many fun elements of the GolfWRX forums. This thread by nicoy3k begins with his tally in a year when he “wasn’t going to buy anything.” Experience something similar? Join the discussion.
Tired of U.S. Opens on links-style courses?
Bogeypro voices his objection to U.S. Opens being staged at links-style courses. Links courses are for the British Open, he suggests, and parkland-style courses ought to host the U.S. Open. A hot topic of discussion. See what WRXers think about his suggestion.
