So, I've heard it said both ways. Is it said Golf W-R-X (saying out the letters) or Golf "Werxs"???? What do you say?

W-R-X is, I believe. the official way. But that seems way too clunky to me. So I just say "works", even though it is pretty much just in my head.

If someone lurks, it's ok, so it's WRX, if he smirks, it's ok too, so it's WRX,
If they're clerks, or have a few quirks, if their job gives them perks, it's ok, it's still WRX
If they get all 350 yard drive braggy, and trolly, then they're jerx, and probably call it wurx

From what I understand

In the beginning, they wanted the site to be called Golf Works, but that already existed, so they called it GolfWRX. Then people would call it Golf Works, but some people had no clue what people were talking about. Then somewhere along the people started calling us WRXers, and we decided that we were smarter and better than everyone else and embraced it.

From that point on its been Golf W-R-X!!!!!!

Unofficially, it varies from person to person.
