Read the discussion in the forums here

1. TaylorMade SIM

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • “Recently had a fitting, SIM was the stand out performer for me.” -Member craz-e
  • “The thing was seriously nuclear. My clubhead speed bumped up only about 1 or 2 MPH, but the launch and spin were incredible, as well as ball speed. I topped out at 170 ball speed, which I had never gotten before.” -Member filwelix

  • “I got fitted recently and hit everything. TS3 was the best for me.” -Member ttttttt1432
  • “My gamer – TS3, 8.5 with the HZRDUS Smoke 60g shaft. I hit it so well, I am reluctant to try anything else.” -Member M_B_H

5. TaylorMade SIM Max

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • “They did something different this year because these drivers are insanely good… With the SIM Max there is no ballooning into wind, just a fiery straight shot, the G410 Plus has tendencies to spin up on me into wind. Twist Face seems to actually work this time around and I can finally draw with the high toe without having to worry about the random high fade. Excellent all-around performer.” -Member mrmikeac
  • “Sim Max and it isn’t even close for me. Outperformed my G400 Max and my all-time favorite M2.” -Member Haber

What GolfWRXers are saying about Martini Tees

Published

on

@golf_ladies

In our forums, our members have been discussing Martini Tees and the popularity surrounding them. WRXer ‘Used2PlayAlot’ asks members ‘what is the hype around the tees?’, and WRXers have been sharing their thoughts on why golfers love them.

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.

  • goaliedad30: “My wife loves them … she’s an improving high handicapper, and it guarantees that she tees the ball at the same height every time. It really promotes consistency. I’ve also gone to using them for the same reason, and it definitely helps me, even as a low handicapper. A bag of 5 is literally a lifetime supply for the two of us! Can’t break ’em, and can’t lose ’em! (Hers are electric pink ….).”
  • ShortSticks: “I don’t know anything about the hype, but they were offered for sale about 3 or 4 years ago at most of the courses I play, and I thought they were cool, so I bought about 5 or 6 in different colors. Still have all of them and haven’t had to buy any tees in that time. They are virtually indestructible, and the bright colors are easy to spot. A couple of times I left one on a tee box, I promptly drove back to retrieve them and still have all the ones I originally bought. I have a neon yellow one I call the Forever-Tee.”
  • ChipNRun: “Benefits of Martini tees: Very durable; more likely to lose one every four rounds than break one. Help you keep ball teed at uniform height on tee shots, especially if the tee boxes area bit chopped up. That said, I can press down an extra 1/8″ to keep the ball low into wind. If you’re a senior and hands get a bit shaky on 14th hole in a 118* heat index, you have a bigger tee top target on which to set the ball. (Note: I still put six 1.5″ wooden tees at the ready for par 3 holes and hybrid/4i driving hole)”
  • platgolf: “I got some, and they last. I use the step version, and it is much more consistent as said. I give away my non-step to fellow golfers till their gone. I like the yellow the best as it matches my golf balls.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about low lofted drivers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing low lofted drivers. WRXer ‘Killerswing1’ asks fellow members if anyone is currently playing a low lofted driver, and what are the benefits of doing so, and WRXers have been having their say in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire thread and have your say at the link below.

  • Vater: “Bryson has a 7.5* that he cranks down to 5.5* which is kind of crazy, but he’s a beast now. Morikawa has an 8.0* that he has dialed up to 9.5*. I used to have a 10.5* driver that I kept adjusting down, for a while below 9* because my flight was too high. Now I game a 9.5* that I’m considering cranking down a notch or two. I’m not particularly fast or strong; I think it’s just the way that I make contact needs less loft. Otherwise, the ball just sails upward.”
  • cgasucks: “In general, ever since the solid core ball was the norm, the trend was drivers having higher degree lofts for the high launch and low spin for most players. People with low lofted drivers have either a crazy swing speed (125+ MPH) that imparts a lot of spin and/or have a very upward attack angle. Most golfers with swing speeds under 100 MPH need more spin to keep the ball the in air.”
  • dmeeksDC: “I think it depends on the head. I can easily hit a low-lofted Ping driver because they seem to launch higher. Same with Srixon. So I’ll go with 9-degree heads in those and even dial it down and confirmed this was best in fittings. In other heads, such as TM M6, the 10.5 fit me better. These were all with swings in the 103-105 range.”
  • jploper: “Personally, I like about 8 degrees; otherwise, I get zero roll out and balloon into the wind.”
