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”

IMAG0026

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.

Forum Thread of the Day: “A comparison of current blades”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from CardsChamps11 who recently tested out an array of different modern blades using the same shaft and shared his findings after doing so with our members. CardsChamps11 goes into fantastic details in our forum on his results using the blades giving a terrific write up which you will want to check out, and summarised his findings with the following takeaways:

“Favorite Iron: Honma (Surprise!)
Best Looking: Titleist 620
Best Feel: P7TW
Most Forgiving: PXG 0311t
Least Forgiving: Titleist 620 or P7TW

Ranking of all Irons:
Honma
P7TW
Apex MB
Blueprint
MP20 MB
0311t
MC 501
620 MB
P730″

Our members have been reflecting on CardsChamps11’s research and findings 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.

  • Z1ggy16: “Nice write up, thanks. I have only hit the MP20’s, and I agree they aren’t as soft as the older offerings. I feel like though somehow, they are a lot more forgiving than those old offerings. The Blue Prints have me intrigued because of the hydropearl finish, and I’m already a pretty big fan of the Glides.”
  • Z4Z3R: “Very nice write up! Thanks for Sharing! I go back and forth between my Apex MB’s and my P7TW’s. That’s also partly because I have different shafts in each. My first couple of month’s with the TW’s, I thought they were fairly forgiving, but I think I was just swinging it really well. They do feel very good when middled. I started struggling a bit, and everyone in the group knows when you miss it, even if the result doesn’t show. The sound quickly changes to very clicky. The Apex MB’s on the other hand, still sound pretty good/soft on misses which I like. I know when I miss it, but I usually like my playing partners to still think I hit it good!”
  • cflo2382: “Solid write up. Spot on with the Miura MC-501. I’ve gamed them for a year now, and my takeaway is very similar to yours. Miura feel. Easy to hit. Look incredible.. but.. OFFSET. It didn’t bother me so much, but after hitting some of the recent blade offerings and then coming back to these, it’s striking how much it stands out. I keep kicking around the idea of moving into something else or sticking with them for another year. They do perform well (for me), though, that’s for sure.. but the Blueprints and Baby Blades have my attention.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best grip for cold winter weather?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from eagles1 who created the topic dedicated to the best winter grips. Eagles1 is on the lookout for grips which “remain tacky” during the winter months, and our members share the grips (and gloves) which have consistently worked best for them during the cold.

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.

  • RobotDoctor: “I game BestGrips Microperf (Augusta model) throughout the year, warm and cold weather. These leather slip-on grips are outstanding warm or cold. At least they work for me and feel much better than rubber grips.”
  • PreppySlapCut: “Tough to beat the Tour Wrap 2G, here.”
  • gripandrip: “I use the FJ winter gloves and have had no issues with grip… with the Z5, UTX and Tour wrap. Maybe the gloves?”
  • kleinheinz: “Lamkin Sonar is great in cold weather.”

Forum Thread of the Day: : “Can a club be a perfect performer but too ugly to play?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Patrik1982 and discusses the question of whether a club can be an excellent performer but too ugly to keep in the bag. Our members share their thoughts on the matter, with the majority siding with performance over aesthetics.

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.

  • Tim Sherwood: “Taylormade R9 irons. I have bought, sold, regretted selling, bought again, sold and so on 3 times now. I love the cavity badging, feel and performance of those irons, but every time I bring them back, I remember just how comically oversized they are, and I can’t play them. Shame really, they are a great product if they fit your eye.”
  • boggyman: “If it works, who cares what it looks like? My current gamers are from the early ’90s. They’re not new or the latest iron but just flat out work!!”Emerich: “I feel this way about some of those ridiculous new putters – for me, I just don’t want to look down and see that.”
  • BIG STU: “I say it is subjective— And I will be the first to tell you if I do not like the looks at address I more than likely can not and will not hit it. That changed for me about a year or so ago. I had always thought ALL hybrids were ugly. Now I could tolerate the early TM Rescues to some extent, but they were hook machines. I ended up on a bulk trade deal acquiring an older Adams A-12 OS 23* with a Pro Launch Red shaft in it. That thing is fugly, but I figured out with a hosel adjustment and some lead tape in the toe to make it anti hook for me. Like I said that thing is ugly, but I love it, and you would have to pry it from my cold dead fingers. A good friend of mine who is getting up in age but is still an accomplished player and lifetime PGA member told me ” It does not matter what a club looks like if you can hit it and it works for you” I had sorta adopted that line of thought previously being brand agnostic, but after that hybrid experiment I have also adopted his policy too.”
