GolfWRX Forum Thread of the Day: How many “regular” PGA wins equal a “major” win?

Published

on

Today’s GolfWRX Forum Thread of the day comes from our members discussing the Player of the Year. Commenting on major wins compared to regular Tour wins, our members talk about Koepka’s two-major season, and what it would take for a different player to beat him out of the title. “How many regular Tour events equals one major win?”

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

  • johnseg: “Tough call for me. I like to see guys dominate. So I would put a 6 win guy ahead of a guy with two majors.”
  • FootWedge16: “In fact, I think there are a number of people on this forum that would rather have Koepka’s career (4 wins and 3 majors) than Dustin Johnson’s career (19 wins and 1 major). Which is completely ridiculous.”
  • c7015: “I want to say like 5-6 but in reality, no amount of regular wins replace a major … just ask the people in the tiger vs jack thread”

    I’m sure there are guys in the “a lot of wins but no Major” category that would trade a LOT of those wins for just one Major.

    Masters = 7
    US Open = 6
    Open = 5
    PGA= 4

    It is probably around the 5 win number but it’s a tricky question because if you are more of a average pro then you’ll take the 5 wins. If you are a stud you’ll take the majors.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips. The shape of the grips has been given the seal of approval from WRXers who have been keenly discussing the SuperStroke creations 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.

  • JCM96: “Love SuperStroke’s texture and feel. If they would just release their tapered grips, they’d get a stranglehold of the putter grip market.”
  • jgolf215: “Interesting shape. The colors are pretty understated for him. I would have expected a much brighter green.”
  • nova6868: “Really like the shape on those. Would definitely buy one if they were available.”
  • GoIrish17: “What’s it say? SGP1.0? I like the shape of it; I hope it comes to retail (or SuperStroke sells them through their eBay store). It looks like a grip I’d like to try.”

SeeMore Putter

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases an array of new SeeMore putters. The new flat-sticks from SeeMore have been a hot topic for discussion amongst our members, with the brand’s plumber neck additions garnering plenty of reaction.

For lots more photos, check out the full forum thread here.

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

  • bunta: “The fact that they put the alignment line on the topline of the Ancers makes me feel obligated to give them a try.”
  • poppman2142: “So the plumbers going into the head at such a severe angle is making them face-balanced I assume? I guess I would prefer the hosel to angle towards the center of the face and have the shaft angle back where it enters the hosel, so I don’t see the entire length of the hosel at address to make it face balanced. To each their own I guess!”
  • MaineMariner: “Those are some very interesting and unique hosels. Gotta hand it to SeeMore, they sure are innovative. I could definitely see myself grabbing that plumber’s neck notchback.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best irons for a sweeper of the ball?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from CROUSE99 who is looking for iron suggestions. CROUSE99, a 10-11 handicapper, takes little to no divot and is looking for irons that will over some forgiveness. Our members give their advice on what clubs are best for a sweeper of the ball.

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.

  • gdb99: “I’m more of a sweeper. My Pro always told me a thin miss is better than a fat one, so it’s just how I play the game. I just bought the T200 irons from Titleist. Coming from 712 AP1’s. They feel better, fly higher, and seem very forgiving. Only played 1 round so far. Good luck!”
  • Snowman9000: “Something with a very low center of gravity. Sometimes the big super game improvement clubs, which you would expect would be low COG, are the opposite. Callaway RAZR X irons from a few years ago are very low COG. It’s hard to do better than those for this purpose. Otherwise, you would do well to look up the Maltby MPF data on clubs you are interested in. Look for adjusted vertical COG lower than, oh, 0.740. The lower the better, for all practical purposes for you.”
  • JDMRN81: “Maltby DBM’s. Low bounce and VCOG…..perfect for sweepers. They’re GI irons with a smaller top line/sole. I’ve owned multiple sets of PXG, Pings, Mizuno, TM, and these are still in my bag.”
  • shanx: “Sweeper/picker here too, usually play thin-soled blades (MP5 and MP15, currently). Also have a set of 07 Cally XForged that had very thin, flat soles.”
