Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Roadking2003, who asks fellow GolfWRX members for the records in golf that they feel are untouchable. The thread contains plenty of debate and showcases some impressive records which you may not have previously known existed.

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.

  • TheLarch: “Tommy Armour’s twenty-three on the seventeenth hole of the 1927 U.S. Open”
  • MtlJeff: “Someone winning 12 straight tournaments in the modern era is basically impossible. That’s the one that is above the rest, even if some of the others are almost equally impossible “
  • Pent08: “I doubt anyone will ever get to 18 majors again. As for Nelson’s records, those are most certainly untouchable. Every sport has its crazy, seemingly untouchable records from long ago.”
  • stranger37: “What about Jack / Palmer 18 straight winning seasons? Obviously right now DJ has the best shot, I don’t think anyone else right now has 5. Still has 7 years to tie.”

    Three from Tiger Woods: Consecutive cuts streak-142, consecutive rounds beating the field-89, and most weeks atop the world ranking-683. Like grezky’s 894 goals, Those 3 golf records will never be touched.

      I think the cuts made can be done, if any of the big names can do the same kind of schedule as Cheater used to use whereby he would skip all the ones he didn’t like and play the minimum required events.
      World ranking can be done. Whoever does it will just have play great for a few years lol
      That rounds beating the field thing is a weird stat, it’s not exactly something the players would have in mind at all as a calculated achievement thing, so that will probably stand as a meaningless and useless stat, and he can have it.

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from No Gimmes who was quick to spot Tiger Woods preparing for this week’s Open Championship with a new Scotty putter. Woods has also been seen warming up for this week’s event at Royal Portrush with his old faithful on the greens, but our members have been discussing the thinking behind the 15-time-major champion’s potential change, as well as the putter itself.

  • Hedgehog: “That topline and the alignment aid and all the smooth lines, gorgeous!”
  • MuniPukeLife: “Makes sense as his trusty NP2 is super light by today’s putter standards.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “New set of irons on a budget of $500-$700?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from GarhawlR who is on the hunt for a new set of irons and is looking for suggestions on how to get the best bang for his buck with a budget of between $500 and $700. Our members disclose their advice for how to go about filling your bag if you’re on a budget.

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.

  • rgk5: “Pre-owned Srixon 585 or Wilson Staff W6 will fit the budget. Maltby irons are okay but will have virtually no resale value down the road.”
  • PushDrawFlush: “$500-700 is plenty to find new-to-me forged irons. I’d keep an eye out for some Srixon z745/765 if you want something similar to your MP25s but a little chunkier/more forgiving.”
  • T.B: “Sub 70 and hogans. Maltby makes great clubs. You have a lot of options at that price range. Take your time, and you’ll find something you really want.”
  • revenant: “You should be able to do this without much trouble. My MP-4s (3-PW) were $280 from global golf with minimal face wear (good grooves and no rust/wear spots).”

Forum Thread of the Day: “How do you go about choosing a 3-wood?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from kcd38 who opens the discussion regarding WRXers approach to choosing a 3-wood. Our members discuss what they want from a 3-wood and how their driver often plays a pivotal role in deciding what they need and want from their 3-metal.

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.

  • HappyGilmore22: “I bought a 3-wood based on whichever low spin combo I could get the best value out of because I’ve tested ten 3-woods and can’t decide between any of them. Went with TS3 and stock shaft in an 80-gram weight class with x-flex, added bonus they fit for the proper swing weight I like. The M5 was my favorite, but with the correct shaft and specs it would have run me over $700, and I wasn’t about to be paying that for a 3-wood that I rarely hit when my $300 one is just as good.
  • Yuck: “3-woods are tough to get one you like under all conditions. I have had 3 of them over the last 40+ years. A Macgregor persimmon from the late 70s till early 90’s. A TM burner bubble tour spoon from the early 90, till 2004. And a TEE CB 2, still in my bag for the last 15 years.”
  • RichieHunt: “I go to a fitter that has a lot of club head options. I find it difficult to get a good 3-wood because they are not easy to hit well and they usually either go long, but suck to hit off the deck, or they hit off the deck well, but don’t go as long as I would like. So that’s why I try to get as many head options as I can to find the best one for me. Then I go to Fujikura and get fitted for a shaft. I also find that 3-wood heads wear down much more quickly than driver heads. So you finally get a head you like and after a short while it’s not performing like it once did, and the new model heads come in.”
  • AG12: “I’ve found for me that when trying to find the right amount of spin and height I got with a mid-low launch/low spin shaft in the brand’s more forgiving head if they have two (M4 over M3, TS2 over TS3, Flash over Sub Zero) and it seems to be a good recipe for launch, forgiveness and stopping power.”
