GolfWRX Live at the 2020 PGA Show: Top 10 things we loved

Published

on

As the 2020 PGA Show comes to a close for the crew at WRX. We went through the experience and all the pics and are now giving you the top 10 things we loved at the show.

G/FORE MG4+ Golf Shoe

If you were a fan of the look and feel of the popular knit MG4, then you’ll love the stability and more “golf feel” of the +.

Dormie Workshop “Tigers Woods” Crew Neck Knit Sweater

What else is there to say about this Canadian high-end accessory company, everything they do is on fire.

Criquet “Masters” shirts

What’s better than the Masters? The folks at the Austin-based Criquet gave a nod to the week we all love and the line flows from Monday to Sunday. There is even the “86” which is a nod to the Golden Bear’s final triumph.

Melin A-Frame Hydro Hat

Melin’s hat will be worn by Phil in 2020 is basically the only headwear packed with serious technology:  a water-resistant exterior, and sweat-wicking interior lining, as well as Thermoflex snapback closure, and an anti-microbial sweatband.

Bobby Headcovers

Fresh, creative headcovers made of premium leather that’s both water and stain-resistant.

TRUE Linkswear Shoes

The all-new TRUE Linkswear line goes from slip-ons to weather battling shoes including knit materials to keep you comfy and dry.

MacKenzie Walker Golf Bags

The design is simple and classic, that’s the beauty of them. Made from high-quality materials including fine leather they are the perfect walking bag.

FlightScope MEVO+ 

This was the buzz product before the show started and judging by the people lined up to try it out the buzz was real. As of now, it is the most affordable radar launch monitor to offer ball and club data to the consumer.

Bettinardi HLX 3.0 Wedges

These wedges looked great with the iconic Bettinardi Honeycomb milling pattern on the back and offered in a satin chrome or black finish. The sole is milled into its final shape and the overall shape is more rounded but with a straighter leading edge. Forged out of soft carbon steel, these should offer a great solid feel with great responsiveness.

Swannies Golf “Goat” polo

Hailing from the northern state of Minnesota, this polo is creative in its design along with being subtle. Swannies Golf is making clothing that you can wear to the office and then still take out to the course for a twilight nine. Made from REPREVE polyester, the polo will keep you dry and cool in even the hot northern summers. The dancing pattern of goats, tigers, and trophies is a nod to one of the greatest to ever play the game.

    Yeah we’re gonna need a review on that Mevo+. I’ve been complaining about a $2k price-point for years.

      Completely agree! Plus can the other guys get in this end of the market too please. Where are you Foresight and TrackMan

        Sorry the high-end golf technology companies of the world don’t cater to the lower end of the market. Build a product for sale at your price point or spend more money.

        Always easier to complain

          I’m surprised good tech doesn’t drop in price year after year like other electronics. Computers, televisions, tablets, etc… They all plummet in price and the newest one has a little more to offer. But these high end rigs just never drop a significant amount or ever become affordable.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best Nike driver ever

Published

on

@ukgolfclubsales

In our forums, our members have been discussing Nike drivers. WRXer ‘DixieD’ is currently building up a Nike bag and has reached out to fellow members for driver advice, and WRXers have been sharing what they feel is the best Nike driver ever made.

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.

  • Ger21: “VR Pro LE? I have two I was still playing last year.”
  • mahonie: “The STR8-Fit Tour was one of the best drivers I’ve played. Still have it the garage and take it to the range occasionally…it would possibly still be in the bag if it hadn’t developed a ‘click’ in the head which I cannot fix. Long, straight(ish) and nice sound.”
  • jackr189: “The VR_S is one of the best.”
  • Finaus_Umbrella: “I played the Vapor Fly Pro, and still do on occasion for nostalgia sake. Sound and feel are great, but it demands a good strike.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “I enjoyed the SQ Tour back in the day, the one Tiger used forever. Do I miss it? Not at all, but it was a pretty good club for its time.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about driving irons for mid-handicappers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether mid-handicappers can benefit from a driving iron. WRXer ‘jomatty’ says:

“I average about 230 off the tee on good drives. I can get a little more sometimes, but 230 is probably the average. I’m 42 years old and shoot in the mid to low 80’s. I do not get along with fairway woods very well, especially off the tee, and really don’t get enough extra length over my hybrid to consider using it aside from very rare situations on par 5’s (I’ve considered just going from driver to 19-degree hybrid and getting an extra wedge or something).”…

…and wants to know if he would be better served by a driving iron. Our members have been sharing their thoughts and suggestions.

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.

  • MtlJeff: “If you can shoot mid 80’s, you probably hit it well enough to hit a bunch of different clubs. Personally, I think hybrids are easier to hit….but some driving irons are quite forgiving. I use a G400 crossover that is very easy to hit and looks more iron-like. Something like that you might like. Be careful with some of them though because they aren’t always super forgiving, so you’d have to hit them first.”
  • HackerD: “G410 crossover is my version of a driving iron, feel like I hit it straighter than a hybrid. Just as easy to hit as a hybrid.”
  • hanginnwangin: “I shoot in the low 80s normally and in the 70s on my really good days. I have probably around the same or similar swing speed as you. I have been hitting my 4 iron off the tee on tight holes, and it’s been working pretty well so far. I hit it about 190-220. I have a 4 hybrid but just can’t hit it as consistently as the 4 iron, and it doesn’t even go much farther. I have a 5 wood which I only use for 220+ yard par 3s or wide-open fairways. Basically, it’s all personal preference and what you do best with. Everyone is going to be different. Try new stuff out and see what works. But if irons are the strongest part of your game (they are for me as well), I would give the 4 iron a shot. You can get a lot of roll out on the tee shots with it,”
  • Hellstrom: “Don’t laugh, but I bought a 17* hybrid with a senior flex shaft at a garage sale for $5, and I can hit it nice and easy and keep it in play without losing any distance. My driver SS is between 105 and 110 usually and swinging this thing feels like swinging a spaghetti noodle, but it works. I don’t have it in the bag all the time, but I do use it for certain courses. I take my 6 iron out and throw that in, so if I struggle with getting the ball off the tee, I just go to that.”
