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: “Your favorite blade irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from moorebaseball, who asks fellow members what their favorite blade irons are. Our members discuss what blades they consider to be best for them, and why, while also contributing plenty of great photos of their prized possessions.

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.

  • greenpiece: “MP-14 is my all-time favorite. Great feel, turf interaction, and control.”
  • BMC: “The Callaway 2018 Apex MB feel incredible and are fairly easy to hit. I started playing blades in 1988 – Wilson Staff fluid feel. Those Apexes are sweet.”
  • bodhi555: “I’d say any of the models Nike brought out when they were in the game – the OGs, VR TW or VR Pros. Current favourites are the VR Pros, usual great Nike looks and crisp feel, but the grooves are savage and put unreal amounts of spin on the ball. No harder to hit than a player’s CB either. Only challenge is finding a decent set. It took me 18 months of scouring eBay and Golfbidder to find mine.”
  • bfp9: “My favorites: 2006 Hogan Apex. OG Nike Blades. Taylormade RAC TP MB. Mizuno MP-32. I’ve only hit older blades as you can see. I tried the PXG experiment, and that failed, so I’m sticking to what I know. To me old blades = new blades. Nothing has changed significantly enough to warrant new ones for me, except the grooves wearing thin on my Hogans.”
  • kiwi1982: “MP-69. Traditional, proper weighting, great feel.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “New irons from Mizuno”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases new irons that are on the way from Mizuno. Reportedly two years away from being released, but that hasn’t stopped our members from discussing and speculating on the new irons from the Japanese manufacturers.

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.

  • halfsumo: “I told myself no new irons until the new MP line comes out. Chris Voshall on TXG’s youtube said something along the lines that the new irons are “not what you’d typically expect from Mizuno”….”
  • deep18: “The one on the left in the bottom pic kinda looks like a 919 Tour.”
  • BlackM00Nlight: “Bottom picture, iron on the right appears to have a beveled leading edge, CB design, and chrome finish.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Masters fashion commentary”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from manku who opened the forum for a discussion on the best and worst of fashion exhibited at the 2019 Masters. Our members discuss the good, the bad and the ugly on show at last week’s opening major of the year, with some items, such as Adam Scott’s pleated pants, dividing opinion.

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.

  • alecfeltman: ” Adams pants worry me. Go back to the tailored slim version. He was dressing like a king until the masters. Rory looks great. Good fit and style. I’m a fan. I don’t understand the new cotton shirts from Nike. Jason Day on Thursday was odd, Friday he did good. TW – I’m a fan this week. I still don’t get why Patrick Reed is sponsored by Nike? That guy needs to wear some brand like Loudmouth. Koepka loves those crazy hats – I dig it. What is the connection between Nike “Snake Pack” and Augusta? I don’t see it. Can someone explain?”
  • elpadidji: “Went here after I saw Adam Scott, thought he looked super good. Got some Arnold Palmer vibes from him.”
  • hardcalier: “Kind of a bad week for fashion in my opinion. Adam Scott’s pants were super baggy like 3 out of 4 days. Tiger looked like he dusted off his wardrobe from 15 years ago. Fortunately, his game from 15 years ago came with it. Adidas stuff is pretty plain, never looks great but never looks awful either. Jason Day looks a little heavy in plaid. Koepka’s print hats were terrible.”
  • Yanki01: “Adam Scott who usually keeps it simple and clean looked hideous. Same for Jason Day and the yellow pants. Not sure if it was the old school look he was going for, but the AM shoes didn’t flow well. Some classic shoes maybe would have helped with some trimmed pants. Justin Thomas was best dressed and usually always is.”
