    Never listen to podcasts. I learned to read in elementary school. And who wants to look like an idiot in public with earbuds in. Words people. I want to read words.

      I don’t think it’s the earbuds that make you look like an idiot…..

    When I see it’s a video or podcast, I just keep it moving. I come here for articles. I can go to YouTube to watch videos or other forms of media to listen to a podcast. I come here to read.

    The technologically challenged (read geriatric) members of the forum want an article. I think the article should be how and where to download the Podcasts.

      Na bro. It’s just because the new younger generation has no idea how, or is to lazy to sit and transcript the interview… Anyways I’m not opposed to a click link, but my ears are jacked from nam, can’t afford earbuds, and don’t want others to hear a bunch of noise just coming from my phone in public.. I prefer to read…

    Did anyone understand what irons RP said he played for years? With his strong Texas drawl and fast speech, I couldn’t understand what he said. Did he say “Toth” irons? I listened several times and just couldn’t catch it.

    Interesting podcast. It is cool to listen to the pros talk in depth about their equipment.

    I think the same way about irons as Palmer. It is a lot about the sole. Titleist irons definitely have a wider sole so it has a shallower divot compared to a lot of other irons. Surprised he didn’t move to a newer version of Titleist irons.

    too much chit chat and sports-talky radio stuff…. at least provide a dang transcript

    Seriously, stop with the podcasts. Myself, and I am sure the majority of other frequenters of GolfWRX would prefer to read an article over listening to a 30+ minute podcast. There are so many benefits of a written article. It is impossible to skim a podcast in just a few minutes. Or at least provide those of us who prefer to read an article the full manuscript of the podcast so we do not have to listen to the entire thing just to get the information we want to know. I am very close to giving up on GolfWRX as a whole and no longer checking the website for golf related news.

          Well, it’s 2 guys to one so far against the podcasts….

              Stop these podcasts and videos. Most of us read your site during work so articles are much better!!!
