Forum Thread of the Day: “What if Tiger is back?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from DJGainer, who asks fellow GolfWRX members what the effect will be should Tiger Woods go ahead and regularly win once again on the PGA Tour. Our members discuss both the possibility of Woods being able to achieve that and the impact that it would have on the game of golf.

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

  • the bishop: “If he wins he wins, and I think ratings will be good.  But as far as the same effect as back in the late 90’s early 00’s, no.  He was younger then, in his 20’s and younger kids relate to someone like that.  My oldest son, born in 1987, began playing golf partly because of Tiger and when we’d go to the range, he’d swing hard and say “I AM Tiger Woods” like one of his commercials from the time.  I don’t think he would inspire younger kids today like he did then.  He’s in his 40’s, and his oldest kid is a middle schooler now I think.  It’ll be great for his long time fans though.”
  • straightshot7: “It won’t transform the game because he already did that. But anytime he’s in contention there will obviously be very high ratings. If he’s in the final group of a major, you will probably see some TVs exploding from excessive rating syndrome.”
  • bazinky: “Plus, just imagine if Tiger is able to win a major and is playing well enough to have an actual rivalry that isn’t one-sided? You have the young-gun or guns versus a resurgent all-time champ adding to golf history. Just look at what happened at the Tour championship (which no one normally cares too much about). It would be absolutely explosive for golf!”
  • IVM: “Tiger winning 2 or 3 tournaments a year would be amazing, and if he won a major that would be incredible. Do not forget he is a middle-aged man with a fused back if he can do this that would be great for golf. He cannot dominate as he once did as his body would not stand up to the pressure. But the above would be good enough to move the needle in golf.”

    Can we talk about this when he wins a full field event on a course he’s never won on?

      So if he wins the Masters (again) can we talk about it or still no?

        You missed the point genius. It won’t happen so let’s never talk about it again. Time for the Tiger bandwagon to disappear and go find their next cool thing so golf can find it’s sustainable market footprint.

What GolfWRXers are saying about upgrading to a ‘blade/cavity back style’ iron

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing irons. WRXer ‘Epakela’ is looking to upgrade to a ‘blade/cavity back style club’ and our members have been putting forward their suggestions 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.

  • waltonsfinest: “Apex Pro from 15-16. Thank me later.”
  • dmbrill719: “2013 Callaway X Forged. It still gets some usage on tour. Awesome blend of feel, looks. and forgiveness.”
  • EDT501: “Mizuno MP 64s still have my vote for the best feel of any modern club I have hit. I also think the turf interaction on them is outstanding. If your miss is low on the face or towards the toe, there is plenty of mass in those areas to help you out. I do wish the 9 iron and PW were a little more compact, but it’s a minor foible in what I otherwise think is one of the best sets Mizuno ever made.”
  • chipa: “Maltby irons at Golfworks would be a good option as well as sub 70 as they have combo MB/CB sets in a traditional looking club with little offset, and the price is a lot less than the big names.”

5 hybrid vs 5 iron – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the logic behind removing their 5 iron from their bag. WRXer ‘rwl’ asks whether any fellow members have experiences doing so, and WRXers have been sharing their thoughts and experiences in our forum.

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.

  • RobertL.: “I replaced my 5 iron with a 5 hybrid. I find it far easier to hit than my 5 iron. I also took my 6 iron out of the bag, so now my longest iron is a 7. I now carry a 3, 4, and 5 hybrid since they’re so much easier to hit than long irons. Makes a big difference for this senior golfer.”
  • JohnKHawk: “For last 2 seasons I’ve played with a Cobra F9 5 hybrid. It’s 24 degrees & gaps perfectly between Cobra OS 3-4 hybrid at 20.5 degrees & Apex19 6 iron which is 26.5 degrees. The 5 iron was just getting to be to undependable. Misses with the 5 hybrid were more playable than the 5 iron. Use what works best for your game.”
  • Abe21599: “Never a bad idea to have both a 5i and 5h options in the trunk, just gotta watch lofts.”
  • nitram: “I know it sounds so “old man” but if you want to make a change in your 5-iron slot and can’t seem to get along with a hybrid, give the 9-wood a try. You may be pleasantly surprised.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons which he has in the bag at this week’s CJ Cup. WRXers have been commenting on the switch and the clubs themselves in our forums.

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

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.

  • btyh: “Holy offset.”
  • Glf_LU: “These are interesting. Not going to make a rush to judgement until I see them in person. It does look like a little more offset than I would expect to see in this model.”
  • bcflyguy1: “Kisner is not one to make a lot of equipment changes (see the GBB driver he’s still using), so if these do have staying power in his bag that will be interesting to see. I have to wonder if there’s something different about his set, because like others have mentioned there appears to be more offset on his than I recall seeing in the samples I’ve had in hand.”
