GolfWRX Forum Thread of the Day: “Tips for developing a swing that holds up under pressure?”

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.

Forum Thread of the Day: “New Ping G410 Driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from hervygolf21, and it surrounds the new G410 driver from Ping that is allegedly set for release at the beginning of 2019. Our members have found out plenty of information on the latest driver from Ping since the thread began, apparently, and here’s a quick look at some of the features you might expect from the new model (if you take forum members’ word for it).

According to the thread, the PING G410 will be black with red accents, will have a higher MOI than the current G400 model, will still contain the Ping Turbulators and will be offered in 12 degrees without draw weighting. It’s also believed that the G400 Max will remain current until July/August 2019, but at a lower price point.

Here are a few posts in the thread reflecting on the news, but make sure to check out the entire thread and join the discussion at the link below.

  • lc1342: “Love both the G400 LST and G400 Max, but if they are bringing out something better… I’ll take it!”
  • cz13x4: “This sounds like a very interesting update. Not keen on red but very interested to see what comes out.”
  • roho: “Late January?  Sounds like maybe a PGA Show unveil in Orlando.”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from i*windows who asked fellow GolfWRX members what set of irons gave or continue to provide the most enjoyment while out on the course. There are a whole host of irons mentioned, from different club-making eras too, with the unique feel the irons give the individual often making the difference.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion at the link below and have your say.

  • TheInfidel: “Just put a set of 900 Forged in the bag with ProjX LX 6.5s – WOW.  Different class of ball flight.  Crazy forgiving
  • craz-e: “My first set of blades the Mizuno MP68’s. They gave me a greater enjoyment in hitting golf shots and a greater love for the game in general.
  • jar59: “Best scoring clubs, best clubs in the wind and best feeling sweet spot were my 985 Tourney Customs with reverse muscleback and rounded toe.  I played them in 2 thru pw (10) from 1976 thru 1981
  • BCULAW: “Ping S56 with Your Issue S400 soft stepped twice, purple dot at +1.  I would never have guessed the specs would work in a million years,  but these were the absolute best feeling and performing irons I have ever hit. Pure joy to play.
  • mogc60: “Probably owned 50 sets of irons in my life and absolutely without question, the best irons I ever played were MacGregor VFoil M25 blades with Satin ProjectX 6.5. Most consistent, best feeling, best ball flight.

Forum Thread of the Day: “What shot is the best feeling in golf?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread Of The Day comes from MtlJeff, who asks fellow GolfWRX members: “What shot is the best feeling in golf?” For our thread starter “There is no better feeling in golf than hitting a 3-wood off the deck and hitting a par 5 in two.” While some agree that a pure 3-wood off the deck is as good as it gets, citing the difficulty of the shot and the sweet sound it makes coming off the club face, our members have come up with a diverse and interesting list of feel-good shots that will most likely have you reaching for your clubs.

Here are a few posts from the forum, but make sure to check out the entire thread at the link below.

  • Jackhammer993: “I like the flop shot that just goes straight up and lands very softly, something about seeing the ball floating in the air that stirs something.
  • Dr Block: “A purely struck 20 foot downhill snake of a putt that goes in on exactly the line you envisioned with perfect dead weight pace.
  • BNGL: “Nothing gets me like the flighted wedge shot. I love it, got goosebumps just thinking about it.
  • Chadwickog: “Mid/long iron on a rope that goes high, so pure you don’t even remember feeling the strike, and you can hear the thump as it lands on the green.
  • naval2006: “Solid drive, long piercing trajectory down the heart of the fairway.  That I’ve loved all my life.
