What’s your best equipment purchase of 2017?



The air is growing chilly and the leaves are turning brown–in the regions of the country where such things happen, anyway. The 2017 golf season is about to breathe its last, and equipment purchasing has slowed to a trickle.

In the spirit of end-of-year reflections, then, GolfWRX members have begun looking back at the equipment that filled their shopping bags this past season.

Jasonp87 began the reflection with this post.

“Seeing as this season coming to an end i just looked over my stats. For the season. I dropped my hcp from a 15.6 to 8.9 my biggest killer was i never had a super strength to my game everything was average. So some days it all came together driving ball striking short game and putting. Others it didnt. I had taken a few lessons prior to this season that started and they are definetly a huge contributing factor.”

“However for the first time i got fit for a driver and a putter. Mind u it was late August. Fit into a Epic SZ and a TM Spider Tour [putter].”

Hybrid25, who may soon be changing his name to Hybrid31, writes

“Callaway XR OS 31* hybrid…To understand why this particular Club helped out so much you got understand high handicappers have a difficult time hitting the green from 160 yards out. This club is so easy to hit pure it’s silly.”

For pierso2, it was a shaft

“Matrix Ozik TP6HDe. Changed my driving entirely! Not only was I finding more fairways but I was carrying drives as far as my previous drives would go with roll.”

And of course someone (in this case Boricua Golf) had to say it…

    CBX wedges. I can believe everyone whose hc doesn’t start with a + doesn’t play them.

    None. I just practiced more. Sold all the other junk, kept my bag and started walking again. Golf became pure again.

    I made several changes to my bag for 2017. Upgraded my Titleist 735s to Nike Vapor Pro Combos, picked up some Vokey SM5s, and ordered a brand new Scotty Futura 6m (my new faviorite club) to replace the Odyssey White Hot Pro #9 I had used for the past couple of seasons. The biggest improvement came from the putter which sets up behind the ball much easier for me so I don’t feel like I have to make any compensations with the stroke.

    When golfers attribute improved performance to new equipment, that is suspect…. unless their old equipment was a total misfit.
    You can’t just pick up a new club and experience miraculous change because the golf swing doesn’t react to new clubs instantaneously. You need a lot of test practice to show new results.
    Golfers who have come to the conclusion they need new equipment to improve their swing and game had better check in with a competent instructor and a club fitter first.
    Equipment miracles only happen in golf club company ads and commercials…. and OEM shills.

      TP5X has given me extra 10 yards on my driver. That means I’m a whole club closer with my irons. THAT’s a massive change. So it is possible, you just don’t know what you’re talking about because you don’t know how to hit the middle of the club face solidly enough

14 players disqualified from mini-tour event for playing from the wrong tees




Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, there is still golf being played in some regions of the US in mini-tour events, and Tuesday during an event on the Outlaw Tour saw a significant rules controversy.

Per Ryan French (Twitter’s Monday Q Info), 14 players during round one of the Outlaw Tour’s Verrado Founders Championship were DQ’d from the event after playing from the wrong set of tees on one hole.

Despite the 14-men playing from a distance longer than they should have, there is no dispensation from the rule despite it being clear there was no intent to gain an advantage on their competitors.

Following the opening round, tournament director Jesse Burghart released a statement on Facebook where he defiantly stuck by his decision to disqualify the 14 players.

“I stand by my decision to uphold the integrity of the game and the Rules of Golf…Penalty for breach of rules is disqualification. It’s very black and white and one of the most important rules to follow.

I’ve heard all the name calling and peanut gallery remarks. At the end of the day we are supposed to be professional golfers. Ultimately it’s your decision to be one or not.

Sheriff Out”


One of the players DQ’d because of the error was James Feutz who backed the Tour’s decision on his social media, but explained how he feels some compensation should be given “considering how many people made the same mistake and the current world situation.”
