Published

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 peek behind the curtain into golf’s sanctuary.

Jordan Spieth vs. Justin Thomas

Here’s one from the Ultimately Pointless but Nevertheless Interesting files. Cwin asks: When their respective careers are done and the days of SB2K grow small in their respective rearview mirrors, who will have had the better career: Jordan Spieth or Justin Thomas? See what WRX members are saying.

How many full bags of clubs do you own?

We’ve looked into how many sets of clubs GolfWRX members have purchased in the past, so this is a little riff on that bit of general curiosity. Jasonnc asks his forum brethren (and sistren) how many full bags of clubs they own. He has three: gamers, backup/travel, and a set for friends. Join the discussion.    

Best fairway wood of the deck?

Appropriate topic, considering we just published our member feedback on the new Callaway Steelhead XR, heir to one of the finest off-the-deck fairway woods in history. Sergio9603 asks for the forum consensus on the best fairway wood to hit out of the fairway (past or present). The replies are plenty interesting and vary widely. See the thread.

Are speakers on carts becoming more common? Should they be?

Golf is changing. Perhaps for the better, or perhaps not quickly enough, depending on who you ask. One manifestation of this change: the preference for listening to music while golfing (via bluetooth speakers, etc, not via Al Czervik golf bag radio). TheyCallMeVinnie wonders just how common it is. Join the discussion.

Danny Willett: least distinguished major champion ever?

2016 Ryder Cup - Singles Matches

Look, we don’t like the “worst major champion” debate, although it has found its way into FTF in the past. Here’s an interesting rhapsody on that theme: Is Danny Willett, the 2016 Masters Champion, the least accomplished golfer to win a major in the modern era? Five times a winner on the European Tour, the Masters is his only PGA Tour victory. Interesting discussion. See the thread.

    How about Norman’s collapse versus Faldo at the Masters? Much worse versus Adam Scott

    Willet didn’t win the 16 Masters – Spieth lost it

      Willet shot a bogey free 67 on Sunday. Sure Spieth blew the 12, but Willet capitalized in the best way.

        Jordan lost it. He had a 5 shot lead going into the back 9…
        Adam Scott at the Open Championship is the only guy with a greater collapse

          Masters doesn’t begin till the back nine Sunday.

GolfWRX Forum Thread of the Day: Bettinardi Ryder Cup Celebrity putters

Published

on

Our GolfWRX Forum Thread of the Day was started by member devey07 who posted photos of red-white-and-blue Bettinardi Ryder Cup putters with the Paris skyline on the back cavity. On the hosels, you’d think there would be names of the 12 players on the USA team… but that’s not the case.

Jackson? Rice? Who? At the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris, there’s a celebrity match being played with players such as Samuel L. Jackson, Condoleezza Rice , Michael Phelps and more. See the full list of names here.

And some head covers…

GolfWRX Forum Thread of the Day: “Tiger Woods at the 2018 Tour Championship”

Published

on

Today’s GolfWRX Forum Thread of the day comes from a dedicated thread to Tiger Woods at the Tour Championship. This is his first return to East Lake since 2013, and lots of crazy things are needed to happen for him to take back the Cup. But then again, he is Tiger Woods and shot a first round 65 (5-under) to grab a share of the lead.

Here are a few comments from the forum, but make sure to check the live thread out in the link below as members continue to share their thoughts:

  • PatsNation: “Seems like the new driver shaft is really making a difference”
  • tbrumbleoe13: “I think he went up (in driver loft) from 8.5 to 9.5. I think 44.75 inches. Not sure about setting but I read swingweight was D3.”
  • blblco02: “We’re just lucky to still be able to see him out there playing. Awesome shots and awesome swing.”
  • Stanks: “I’m hoping big cat can put a win in but I’m just stoked to get to watch him this week and at Ryder Cup”

GolfWRX Forum Thread of the Day: “Do golf fans care who wins the FedEx Cup?”

Published

on

Today’s GolfWRX Forum Thread of the day comes from our members discussing the FedEx Cup, and if it actually matters to the fans. For the players, the $10 million is huge, but for fans, is it just another weekend to watch golf?

Here are a few comments from the forum, but make sure to check the whole thread out in the link below:

  • snizzle: “Yeah I will usually try to watch if big names are playing but could care less about who wins the FedEx Cup..it  just seems like a big corporate money grab thing.”
  • Barfolomew: “Yeah sounds like a great accomplishment to win the Cup but I dont think their new system will make it more appealing”
  • SilverBullets: “I don’t and in fact I care even less now that it’s handicapped. Now if the Tour Championship were a winner take all 32 man match play event… well sign me up.”
