Forum Thread of the Day: “GolfWRXers test out the new Wilson Cortex”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from StogiesNotBogies, who after getting the chance to try out the new Wilson Cortex, gave his feedback on the “Driver vs. Driver 2” winning club to fellow GolfWRX members. The club, according to StogiesNotBogies, lives up to the hype.

“I have to say, I’m really impressed. My swing speed with this driver was about five mph faster with the blue shaft configuration, And I was hitting it on average about 10 yards further than my G400. Overall, dispersion was better with the G400, but it was a very close competition. Wilson has impressed me with this one. Definitely worth trying out if any of you have a chance.”

StogiesNotBogies isn’t the only member on our forums to have tried out the new driver, with others praising the new addition from Wilson.

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.

  • RichieHunt: “I saw the Cortex today at the PGA SS.  The sole looks excellent, and it has that ‘shelf appeal.’  Putting it down it looks fine to me.  It does look a little smaller, like a 440cc head, but I could be wrong.  Sometimes certain clubs look bigger than others even though they are the same size head. It didn’t feel too light to me.  Of course, I play a Callaway Rogue SZ, and that head is only 188 grams.  It’s night and day better than the Triton.  I’m probably going to end up getting a G400 Max pretty soon, but had this been around when I was looking for a low spinning head last March, I’d definitely consider it.”
  • hd.softail: “Hit the Cortex this weekend. This driver is the real deal in every way except the price. And I only say that because Wilson is the name on the driver and like others have mentioned, resale is not going to be that of the other big dogs. That said, if you did a blind test, the Cortex would hang with any of them.”
  • Gunner22: “Hit it today. Solid but nothing exceedingly impressive. For sure better than their offering last year. I don’t think it is close to the G400 Max or the new T3. Regardless, felt solid and not gimmicky.”

    Got to see the driver in person the other day but didn’t test it due to the shaft offerings at my local golf store. Looks wise to me it is great. Sort of a mix of the Titleist D3, Rogue and or M series in my opinion. When I get a shaft worth testing for me I will give it a go. I think the price tag is going to turn people away due to Wilson’s reputation

    Funny how much coverage Wilson is getting on this driver….little money being spent of that $499 price tag…also a lot of sits that are so called sits that cannot be bought are saying good things about this “Made for TV driver” If Wilson was so sure they got the “Made For TV” driver right this time maybe they should by back the last one that was a total waste…

    “Cortex” is also the trademark name used on Babolat tennis rackets. It’s a shock absorbing feature in the racket handle. Maybe Wilson have taken the same name to suggest the driver is good for off-center hits.

    Is it true the women’s version is named “Cotex”?

    The adjustable toe weight is labelled “NEUTRAL”, while heel weight is “DRAW”. The sliding weight is presumably for CofG adjustment. Where is the “FADE” adjustment weight and what does “NEUTRAL” mean? … Not that it matters as long as it “FEELS” good.

      Don’t worry your little head if you don’t understand how the driver works :-p

Forum Thread of the Day: “Zach Johnson splits with caddie”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day was started by imakaveli, who began the thread regarding Zach Johnson’s split with long-term caddie Damon Green. The two men had been together for over 15 years, and after Green admitted that he was “shocked” when Johnson told him the news, our members discuss the possible reasons behind the break-up of their relationship.

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.

  • iBanesto: “ZJ’s 2018 form has been quite underwhelming. Plenty of top 25’s but not many top 10’s.”
  • Holy Moses: “Getting fired sucks, but I’d have to think that Damon has enough money to retire if he wanted to right now. The majority of caddies can’t say that.”
  • shoot4par: “Like most relationships (in life) depending on the level of success and shelf life good things die. People change and in business, if the relationships become unhealthy and jeopardize friendships…. then it’s time to go.”
  • IVM: “Caddie ain’t going to make any difference just wait and see.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Why do so many people have an issue with Rory Sabbatini?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Hit em Good, who asks fellow GolfWRX members why they think that there is so much animosity from golf fans towards Rory Sabbatini. There are always two sides to every story, and in this thread, our members discuss the 42-year-old, along with other PGA Tour professionals.

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.

  • sdandrea: “I don’t know the man so I can’t pass judgement.  His face and body language to project a bit of impatience and negativity.  Could be that he is just very serious during competition. “
  • 27×10.5: “Something years ago about quitting Tigers tournament for shin splints while in last place then keeping the automatic $200k for showing up…not that I cared, but it was a big story then.”
  • Rosco1216: “I was playing with a local pro I know well.  He played 30 some PGA tour events in the early 2000s.  I randomly asked him who the most disliked guy on tour was, and without pause, “Rory Sabbatini without a doubt.”
  • BMC: “There was a story a few years ago at the Sony in Hawaii.  Rory S came in very early for a practice round and was paired with a husband and wife tourist twosome.  It’s a resort course.  The couple said he couldn’t have been nicer.  Helping them with their game and enjoying his company.  They ate lunch together after the round, and he picked up the tab.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best Country Club amenities?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from regiwstruk, who asks fellow GolfWRX members what the best country club amenities are that they have experienced. Plenty of different and very cool facilities get a mention, and the thread gives an excellent insight into the little things that can genuinely enhance a golfers day out.

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.

  • burnsniper: “Hands down the best amenity is Child Care.  Our club will watch the little ones for up for 3 hours per day at no charge.  Gives you plenty of time to play nine (or more) or to go to the gym or a nice meal with the wife/friends.”
  • defnotapro: “Live in Texas and one of the simplest things, but don’t see it that often, is ice towels on the course. Especially when it’s over 95 and humid in Houston. I’ve learned just to throw a towel in the ice chest but would be really nice if they were on the course.”
  • ratspros: “A creative chef that can come up with amazing weekly and daily features is key. Nothing worse than ordering off the exact menu in the summer as you would in the spring or the fall.  You go from boring and almost regretting having to eat to excited for something fresh and different. In my opinion behind a great supper, the next most important position at a great club is the chef, even above the head professional.”
  • roadking2003: “I played Stonebriar in Dallas several years ago, and they had a cigar room.  That was wonderful.”
