And our members have been sharing their thoughts on Love’s decision in our forums.

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.

  • Holy Moses: “DL3 not broadcasting for CBS anymore. He’s going to focus on his family and playing. Nice guy, but he should never have been on TV. CBS doesn’t know what good TV talent would be. Who’s the replacement?”
  • geesecougar2: “Phil should retire to the booth already. He’d be awesome. I also loved Freddie when he did guest appearances; maybe they can get him some part-time gigs.”
  • Matty01984: “Not a huge surprise that DL3 has packed it up. I am absolutely sure that he is a thoroughly decent bloke and likely has his pulse on the current life of a PGA Tour golfer more than anyone else in the commentary teams but it just never seemed a good fit. It never really seemed like he was comfortable or enjoying himself, although when stuck listening to CBS I am not sure that many of us are comfortable or enjoying themselves.”

    The only golf coverage watchable with the sound on is the European Tour. The US coverage covers the gamut from vaguely annoying to completely un-listenable. 1000 words when 10 would suffice, a constant stream of superlatives throughout every broadcast, ridiculous hyperbole. Clearly ever-more targeted at the absolute lowest-common-denominator, reinforced by expunging the better speakers like Kostis and McCord.

    Not to mention, 23 years of non-stop drooling over Tiger.

    The technology is available to allow the broadcast with optional talk or course-sound only (ballstrikes, crowd)… I’d go for the second, though a quality CD player is a fine alternative.

    Get rid of them all and watch golf with volume off. TV golf is SOOOO much better.

      One of the great mysteries: how do executives and managers who are supposed to know so much keep fouling up the works?

    I’m a big DLIII fan. The first time I listened to him on the course, it was obvious he didn’t belong there. His monotone voice, lack of enthusiasm, and reluctance to speak unless a question was presented to him made it painful to listen to. I admire the fact that he realized it sooner rather than later and did the right thing.

What driver are you playing and why? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking drivers. WRXer ‘Hogan9’ kicks off the thread saying:

“I play the Ping G400 10.5* with the stock Alta regular shaft. I’m 70 with a torn rotator cuff and really struggle with distance off the tee. I’ve tried various models of almost every brand out there, and the G400 is the longest and straightest for my swing.”

And our members have been revealing their driver of choice and why it made its way into their bag in our forums.

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.

  • BogeyParBogey: “M3 440 9* with Tensei White stiff. I don’t hit the ball that far (good ones go 220-230), but for whatever reason this driver has been much longer for me than others. The ST190 9.5* with Atmos Red regular was an absolute disaster to start the year.”
  • TaylorMadehunter1: “Mavrik Sub Zero 9*, Callaway green dot adapter set to -2, Tensei Raw White 65TX. Tried just about every offering out there this year and this one has been the best performer for me personally. Seems to have eliminated most of my duck hook shots and have at least made them more playable. “
  • EvoXWW: “Cobra F9 9* w/ Tour AD TP 7X. Hit straight bombs with it all last year, 290 avg hitting 81% FIR. However, this season I’ve lost all consistency and distance. Distance is down at 260 avg and only hitting 57% FIR. I have never been fit, so I’m looking to getting a fitting session with the TSi series to see how it compares.”
  • scooterhd2: “Ping G410+. I’m really drawn towards the slightly heavier head weights. I tend to get super quick, and my tempo is really good with the 410. One of the rare setups that is super forgiving, but also has a deep mode where it can get as long as anything. Never hit 300+ yards drives before, and when this I hit one every other round.”
  • LUXOR54: “Titleist 915D3 8.5° A1 setting w/ Diamana D+ limited 70-S. Always been a fan of smaller headed drivers, 440 and under just suits my eye. Had a spell with the sldr 430, but it would occasionally knuckleball and just fall out of the sky, misses were erratic. The 915 with its slight fade bias, produces straight tee shots and the occasional power fade. Can tee it high and send low spin monsters, or tee it down and hit wind-fighting bullets. It’s put me in parts of the fairway that I’ve never been before, and when I miss it, results aren’t bad either.”

Do Bryson DeChambeau’s upright iron lie angles give him an advantage from the rough? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been debating whether Bryson’s iron lie angles give him an advantage over his peers from shots out of the rough. WRXer ‘Valtiel’ kicks off the thread saying:

“Is it possible the Bryson’s extremely upright iron lie angles (~10*+ more upright than standard) give him a bit of an advantage out of the rough? It would seem like the more upright a club is, the less shaft/heel/hosel would actually be grabbed on to/twisted by deeper rough. 

To look at it from the opposite extreme, an iron that was bent significantly flat would, if I’m correct, come into contact with a lot more of the rough around the hosel area. Thoughts?”

And our members have been having their say on the subject in our forums.

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.

  • jll62: “Buddy of mine is on the MacKenzie Tour and also has irons that are nearly as upright as Bryson’s. He said better performance out of the rough is definitely a thing with that upright of a lie angle. Basically, if you have a high VSP, you start to minimize rough interaction as much as you can.”
  • NoCalHack: “I don’t think that the lie itself would make a big difference at all. 10 degrees probably means a couple of blades of grass. But one reason why his clubs are so upright is the one length thing. The fact that his longer irons are shorter means he swings them steeper. This no doubt helps him.”
  • Hairpie: “I think the added length that produces more speed is a bigger factor. I also think Winged Foot is more accessible to a bomb and gouge mentality since nearly every green is open in front.”
  • ronbo: “Biggest advantage is the GW is the length of his 6 iron and the amount of club head speed compared to a Std. GW or even a PW out of the rough is unbelievable. Try it sometime. One Length here to stay….”
  • labgolf: “100%. I was saying it all week. Not to mention the extra weight and length on the wedges. HUGE advantage. He’s a sharp cookie!”

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best feeling/softest irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing some of the best feeling and softest irons. WRXer ‘leftycabe’ is a lefty on the hunt for a new set of irons and has asked fellow members which of the following irons are the best feeling:

  • Miura 801
  • Mizuno MP20 sel
  • Mizuno 921 sel (tour)
  • PXG 0311 T (gen 3)
  • Titleist 620 CB
  • Titleist T-100

And our members have been having their say on the matter in the thread.

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.

  • Go_Time: “I’ve hit them all, and Srixon 785 has been the softest.”
  • iNeedMoreGolf: “Ok, so the best answer I can give you is the Mizuno mp MMC 20. I’ve hit a lot of irons this past year all head to head… nothing, and I mean nothing was softer to me than the mp mmc20. From 4 iron down to PW and that’s rare in my opinion to have each iron be consistently the same amount of soft throughout the set. Not just soft but a soft that’s different than the rest and still very informative on what you put into the shot.”
  • bunta: “Softest? Everythings pretty soft when you hit the middle. Best feeling? Srixon 785. By far.”
  • BCULAW: “Z785s are pillow soft with the right shaft. Add the v-sole, and it is a feel player’s dream.”
  • HSTNGolfer: “Another set to consider is Wilson Staff Model blades. Tried everything, except the Miuras, at a golf Expo in February and the Wilsons felt the best to me.”
