Could a scratch golfer break 85 at Augusta National?
A classic barstool debate: Could a scratch golfer break 85 at Augusta National? Many variables to consider, sure, but it’s a great essential question, which golfer929 has parlayed into an equally great thread. See the thread.
The best rounded mallet-style putter ever?
Ah, the rounded heel-shafted mallet. A classic of the flatstick universe. Zach Attack, after singing the praises of his Odyssey Black #9, asks the community for its favorite putters in the mode of Phil Mickelson. See the replies.
5-hour rounds at public courses
“Without marshaling it is a free for all,” contends David69, after one too many maddeningly slow plods around a golf course. Further, he suggests that at public/packed venues, he’s rarely seen the pace of play in a reasonable range at a course without marshalling. So why not more marshalls, he wonders. While “money” might be the obvious answer, the discussion here is a good one. See the thread.
Rating the course raters
Top-100 lists are a big part of the golf industry. No matter how much we malign them, the rankings are important to courses and determine where people play golf. But at the heart of these lists lie the course raters and the criteria that guide them. We don’t want to spoil this excellent thread by saying more. Check it out.
Wilson Staff love
Nic19 has been very impressed by the resurgent power of Wilson Staff, once one of the most storied brands in golf history, and more recently one that looked on its way out of the industry. See what other WRXers have to say about Wilson in particular and brand ups and downs more generally. See the thread.
