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.”

    The course, Gianni you moron.
    It doesn’t matter what the clubhouse is like, if the course is xhyte.
    I don’t care about the clubhouse, the foods, the drinks, the bar. None of it.
    It’s all about the course, how the course is laid out and maintained and how the club cares for it.

    A cigar room? So you can douche out with other douche bags?

Forum Thread of the Day: “Would a top-25 Ranked PGA Tour player absolutely dominate the Web.com Tour?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from vbb, who asks fellow members whether or not they believe a top-25 ranked PGA Tour professional would dominate on the Web.com Tour. Our members have been giving their thoughts on the subject, and while some think that any top-25 PGA Tour pro would rule supreme on the Web.com Tour, others believe that only certain players would.

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.

  • rangersgoalie: “Depends on the player. Bubba?  He’d win, probably a few, but results would be all over the place. Fleetwood?  Likely multiple wins and consistent contention. “
  • c7015: “Would be interesting, in short hell yes but I would be curious to track regression to the mean. I know those guys go low and some might say it would be harder for a tour player to adjust.”
  • iBanesto: “Dustin Johnson would dominate easily.”
  • Darth Putter: “Could a PGA Tour player motivate himself enough to play well for less than one-tenth the purse he normally plays for?”

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Fourteen Golf’s 2019 TC920 irons. Our guys were on-hand this week to snap some photos of the new additions from Fourteen Golf, and the look of the clubs made by the Japanese manufacturer has many of our members besotted.

For a lot more photos and discussion, make sure to check out the entire thread here.

Here are what some of our members are saying about Fourteen Golf’s TC920 irons.

  • IHFN: “Look like a combo of the TC-888 and the FH900, but with the offset of the FH1000. Me likey.”
  • MitchellGolfing: “Really like the look of these. Fourteen puts out some serious irons.”
  • Equipto: “Haven’t ever really considered Fourteen as an option, but after seeing these I might have to rethink that, great looking sticks.”
  • andrieddie: “At first, I was going to say the FH 900 looks so much better, but after a few takes….this looks like money too. Hope more and more of these are showing up in the bags of big tour players.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “2019 Accra TZ5 & TZ6 shafts”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases the 2019 Accra TZ5 & TZ6 shafts. The shafts have been met with resounding approval from our members on our forum, who almost to a man find them a thing of beauty, and are eager to find out just when they will hit the shelves.

For more photos, make sure to check out the full forum thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, and you can join the discussion at the link below.

  • Ziggy16: “Yessssss love it. I had the chance to hit Accra shafts for the first time in 2018. I think they are some of the best feeling shafts I’ve ever swung. It’s between them and VA Composites, although I just saw Oban is now back in the game. Still, after all these years, the HB is still making a mark in my bag.”
  • KMo23: “Have the TZP Proto in the Driver, can’t wait to find a weight and launch profile for a fairway wood. Lots of tour guys switching to this!”
  • Oaks: “It’s the best feeling Shaft I can remember in a while.  Reminds me of the old ACCRA feel that they were known for.”
  • rpmspooner: “I had a chance to chat with Reid at Accra yesterday. They are extremely excited about the Tz5 and Tz6. I think they think this one is a home run. “Smoother mid section” was the response. If that is true, I don’t know who is going to compete with ACCRA this year. They already owned the smooth space in golf shafts.”
