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.

    When you duck hook your drive into the woods and it hits a tree and comes back to the center of the fairway.

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.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “What is your favorite ‘Tour Issue’ club of all time?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from pmurph#3, who asks fellow members what their favourite Tour Issue club of all time is. Despite these clubs not featuring in your local golf store, it doesn’t stop our members from getting their hands on them, and in the thread, we see plenty of rare clubs mentioned.

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.

  • mosesgolf: “The 300 Tour and then the R510 DF (no TP logo on toe underline half line) in respective order.  These two drivers imo kicked off the “Tour” craze. I still have the Adams “Peanut” hybrid which is the best hybrid I’ve ever played.”
  • 300_yard_drives: “Secret tour issue Callaway apex di and I still have mine. Asian Tour rep didn’t even know it existed. I have only seen it in one other person’s bag personally, and that was Jaime Sadlowski.”
  • cardoustie: “I gotta go with 510df, that to me started the whole tour issue thing. I did get a TI driver at one time … 580 xd tp IIRC, but I hooked it off the planet.  Must have had loads of hot melt in the heel.  And it wasn’t just me; even my +3 buddy couldn’t hit it straight.  Too bad as the feel was exceptional.”
  • cgasucks: “The Titleist 970 FW.  This is the one that Tiger used as his three-wood in his prime.  Very hard to get then…and very hard to get now.”
