You know the drill, GolfWRX Members. We want you to pick this year’s best hybrid. Click through to the thread and vote for hybrid you liked best. Then, offer your feedback in the comments. Click here to vote.

Did you switch drivers in 2017?

Did you swap out the ole 1-wood this season? EKELLEY (who clearly likes ALL CAPS) is on the fence about doing so, and he wants to know who’s had success…and with what. “I need HONEST answers here,” he writes. Who has switched drivers this year, from this to that and made SERIOUS gains?”

Are there “serious gainers” among the WRX readership? Check out the thread.

The “No-Sight Line Club”

Peculiar? Brilliant? Arbitrary? Most putters come with sight lines or dots. Some golfers, however, can’t stand the things. What gives? Find out in this thread.

If you could interview any pro…

Jordan Spieth go get that

Here’s an excellent question: If you could interview any current professional golfer who would it be? What would you ask him/her? Medic votes for John Daly. To see who other WRX members want to talk to, check out the thread.

Golf-related “OCD”?

No disrespect intended to those with the certifiable and unfortunate mental disorder, this thread is dedicated to those golf things you “have” to do. Clean your clubs after every shot? Mark your ball in particular way? Some more than others, but we all have our peculiar tendencies. This thread is dedicated to our “OCD” golf habits. See the thread.

    It is indeed a tricky club to really measure which is best and which isn’t. We compiled our ranking a bit earlier in the year (www.golfassessor.com/best-golf-hybrids/) and the Cobra we found being the common denominator. But hybrids are probably the most unique in terms of fit to a particular player.

    There are no ‘best’ hybrids; only best golfers who can play with most any model clubs.

Tiger Tuesdays

Which Tiger Woods major win is the most underrated (and why)? #TigerTuesdays

Published

on

@wwos

As part of our new ‘Tiger Tuesdays’ weekly content, we created some Tiger Tuesdays forum threads to get feedback from WRXers on some hot topics relating to the 15-time major champion Tiger Woods.

For one of those topics, we asked our members which Tiger Woods major victory is the most underrated and why, and our members have been having their say with some great takes (including an interesting selection for a non-major Tiger win).

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.

  • digger91: “I would say the 01 Masters. I know it’s a part of the Tiger Slam, but the fact that he needed to win that to complete it is crazy to think about. You’ve got to assume the pressure he felt to get the W was huge, and that makes this one even bigger in my eyes.”
  • Mello Yello: “I think his 5th major might qualify. That is the 2000 PGA Championship, which was the 3rd leg of the Tiger Slam. When it comes to the Tiger Slam, people talk a lot about the other 3 titles which include his 15-shot victory at Pebble in the US Open, the 8-stroke victory at St. Andrews and the incredible 2001 Masters where he closed it out. But in order for that Tiger Slam to exist, he had to take down someone with a hot hand who was seemingly destined to win that 2000 PGA. Tiger won in a Play-off after shooting 18-under including 66-67 to start and a 67 on Sunday, defeating runner-up Bob May. Both TW and Bob May finished at -18 while 3rd place was only at -13. If somehow Tiger didn’t pull that out, the whole Slam never would’ve happened, and quite frankly, a lot of the myth surrounding TW being the greatest ever probably wouldn’t be as big as it is. And again, when was the last time you heard someone talking about the 2000 PGA? There are a few other wins that don’t get so much hype (mostly from the late-Haney era) but most of Tigers significant wins are talked about for one reason or another: the various Masters titles, the historic US Open at Pebble, the 2 wins at St. Andrews, the 2-iron adventure at Hoylake, the battle with Sergio at Medinah in ’99, the amazing Play-off win over Rocco at the ’08 US Open, etc.”
  • ElMosquito: “Another vote for the 2000 PGA Championship. The third part of the Tiger Slam and the closest he came to not winning one of the four. Birdied both 17 and 18 to get into a playoff as well as playing his last 12 holes on Sunday seven-under par. Phenomenal. “
  • QuigleyDU: “His 3rd amateur title. In comparison to everything else. It seems this gets lost. He was way down and battled back to win. Another thing he really did not do all too often. Come from behind to win.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best cheaper/older 3-woods for off the deck

Published

on

@golf_baragins

In our forums, our members have been discussing older 3-woods that work great off the deck. WRXer ‘FakeClubPro’ has a budget of around $100 and WRXers have been putting forward their picks in our forum.

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.

  • anythingfinite: “Ping i20 forever.”
  • FakeClubPro: “I was checking and my 10+ year old Yonex 3 wood is stiff flex. I am sure my swing speed is 100 or less. I usually go for regular flex. I got the Callaway 8 fairway wood with senior flex, and it is super consistent off the turf. I am in my late 50’s with still good swing range of motion. If I work on my fitness I can get my speed back up. I wonder if senior flex is the way to go. One of the UK Youtube golfers (so many) tested stiff versus regular versus senior, and his distance was pretty much the same. He had to make some slight adjustments.”
  • kthomas: “I went through this recently myself. I’ve been playing a TM R11s 3 wood for many years, which I’m pretty good off the tee with but no confidence hitting off the deck. Was recently playing with some family members who were playing with rental Callaway clubs, which had I believe was the epic or epic flash 3 woods in the bags. I borrowed the 3 wood at the driving range to check it out, and I nailed every shot I hit with that club, tee or deck. Long straight bombers. From that point forward I knew my next 3 wood was going to be a Cally. Not a brand I would normally look to, but I was impressed. Went on the Callaway pre-owned site and picked up an excellent condition epic flash sub-zero for just a bit over $100. Should show up today or tomorrow, excited to take it to the course. I would suggest looking on the Callaway pre-owned site.”
  • Markrip: “2014 Adams Tight Lies 2. I’ve been trying to replace the last 3 years, and I still haven’t found anything easier off the deck.”
  • FriscoKid: “Some great recommendations posted, I’ll add a TaylorMade M4 3HL…basically a 4 metal at 16.5 degrees. It’s not as long as the Ping G it replaced but a better feel/sound and consistency. It’s bonded though with zero adjustability so better make sure you’ve got the right shaft in it.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about alternatives to hybrids

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been having an interesting discussion on clubs that can be used in place of a hybrid. Neither too comfortable with using a 4-iron or his current hybrid, WRXer ‘Brenkj’ asks fellow members for alternatives, and WRXers have been having their say in our forums.

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.

  • Rapidcat: “You have quite a few options in addition to already mentioned, assuming you are an ok ball striker being a 13 or so cap: Higher lofted wood like a 5 or 7, you can experiment with shaft lengths and lie angle with some adjustable hosels so not too upright. 3 or 4 iron of something like a Srixon 585 model – like a driving iron but not quite so bulky and easy enough to launch but with nice turf interaction and a little broader sole (and in this model’s case, the Srixon V sole).”
  • ChipNRun: “If you have the 4i but are reluctant to play it, consider getting the shaft softstepped, or refit it with a higher launching shaft. (My irons have a parallel 0.370″ hosel, so I put a hybrid shaft into my 4i).”
  • SwingMan: “High lofted fairway – you can shorten the shaft length.”
  • Golf64: “G410 set at ‘flat’ will help with that ‘draw/hook’. If that doesn’t work, for sure go with a 5/7/9 woods. Never hit a 7W before, loved it when I demoed one! Could game one.”
