Published

on

Thanks to GolfWRX member eagle1997 for suggesting today’s Featured Forum thread on our Forum Suggestion Page. If you haven’t checked it out yet, I recommend dropping in and posting any threads you think might be a fit for future Forum Threads of the Day.

For today’s Hottest Thread, one member explains his struggle with the game and asks for different ways to help mentally and mechanically, especially while under pressure.

Here are a few suggestions from the forum, but make sure to check out all of the comments in the link below:

  • Santiago Golf: “The only way you become a good mental player is in trusting the swing you have”
  • MadGolfer76: “No way around it – you just have to face the music, and that is why people are telling you to train the mind and worry less about the swing.”
  • Chowdah86: “At the risk of being lambasted, I am going to suggest Leadbetter’s A swing, as much as its trashed all over the web, is a good example of a swing that should work under pressure.”

Check out the full forum thread here for more discussion.

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Roadking2003, who asks fellow GolfWRX members for the records in golf that they feel are untouchable. The thread contains plenty of debate and showcases some impressive records which you may not have previously known existed.

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.

  • TheLarch: “Tommy Armour’s twenty-three on the seventeenth hole of the 1927 U.S. Open”
  • MtlJeff: “Someone winning 12 straight tournaments in the modern era is basically impossible. That’s the one that is above the rest, even if some of the others are almost equally impossible “
  • Pent08: “I doubt anyone will ever get to 18 majors again. As for Nelson’s records, those are most certainly untouchable. Every sport has its crazy, seemingly untouchable records from long ago.”
  • stranger37: “What about Jack / Palmer 18 straight winning seasons? Obviously right now DJ has the best shot, I don’t think anyone else right now has 5. Still has 7 years to tie.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Is it easier to hit players irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day was created by lazyjc4, who asks fellow GolfWRX members for their opinion on what they feel are some of the easiest to hit players irons on the market. Our members have mentioned a multitude of players irons, with plenty of detailed reasoning behind their choices.

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.

  • thewral: “New Level 902. Single piece forging, feel great, smallish head, low offset, distance lofts.”
  • naj959: “I went through a couple of sets of irons this year which included 765s, flyz+, and finally settled on the…..Bridgestone J15 DPF. There are some great reviews of these irons. The 765s are forgiving, but the j15s are even more so. They have a very thin top line, are workable, and are lonnnng.”
  • Casper_golf: “Take a good look at the Wilson V6, or if you are looking for something older, guys really like the V4’s that can be found as a steal.  Way underrated irons. Soft feel forgiving and long for the weaker lofts they have. No offset.”
  • Sonja Henie: “Very interested in the comment about the 745s being similar to the 545s in forgiveness.  I’ve been very tempted by the 565s but might do better with the 765s.”

Published

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Charley Hoffman’s custom Scotty Cameron Putter. The putter, which Hoffman used recently at the QBE shootout, has quite a nostalgic feel to it, although it appears the majority of our members are not too enamored with the new flatstick.

Check out the full thread and all of the photos here.

Here is what some of our members have been saying about Hoffman’s putter, but make sure to check out the entire thread and have your say at the link below.

  • Meanmachinemoe: “Hoping this is a preview of his 2019 line-up so I won’t be tempted. UGLY!”
  • evansmar004: “The top is not good looking….but I love walking the Scotty dog”
  • cxx: “You guys are funny.  The only beauty in a putter is how many putts find the bottom of the cup.”
