Published

GolfWRX forums exist so golfers have access to the latest equipment releases, hottest discussions, real equipment reviews, best instruction, new technologies and everything golf you can imagine. So if you love golf, the GolfWRX forums are your sanctuary.

In the From the Forums weekly feature, we bring you the hottest, most buzz-worthy topics from our forums for your convenience. I’ll be your trusty tour guide to navigate the latest buzz.

Here’s a peek behind the curtain into golf’s sanctuary.

Loving Patrick Reed…

Patrick-Reed-622_0

Brash, occasionally arrogant, outbursts of profanity and some questionable episodes in his past, Patrick Reed is a divisive figure in the world of golf. But on the heels of his win at The Barclays, a lot of GolfWRXers are finding a lot to love in the Sunday red and black-wearing Texan. Scooterboy59 started a thread dedicated to Reed appreciation, in fact.

Weigh in on P. Reed here.

Clubs everyone loves (but you)

WRXer Mitchell's Circle-T Laguna

WRXer Mitchell’s Circle-T Laguna

Good topic, this one. We all know the sexy makes and models everyone seems to love. Mizuno MP 33s, anything Miura, Circle Ts, the Ping G30, etc. This phenomenon struck user sfdoddsy in relation to a particular set of irons he demoed that forums (this and others) seem to love. So he started the thread detailing his experience and asked if anyone else had experienced something similar.  

See the thread for a rundown of what WRXers weren’t feeling the love for.

Does anybody still wear khaki?

DarrenClarkeShorts

In a world of white pants (and shorts) everywhere (thanks, PGA Tour), user Scooter McGavin asks: “Does anybody still wear khaki pants or shorts?” And further, McGavin wonders, what does one pair them with? (Answer: Khaki is a neutral color…so anything that isn’t so close in color it clashes). If you’ve had a similar sartorial conundrum, you’ll want to check out this thread.

Debate the merits of khaki here.  

Praising the open stance…

Address_More_Distance_weight

The “Instruction & Academy” forum doesn’t get a lot of run in FTF, so here’s a thread that gives you a taste of the sort of discussion and debate that goes on among the swing technicians there.

In this thread, user skyking relates how he’s seen a dramatic improvement in his ballstriking simply by opening his stance. He asks other WRXers if they’ve ever seen similar results and questions what the specific reason for improvement might be.

To see what the amatuer and professional swing theorists who frequent the forum said, check out the thread.

From the Classified: Piretti Copper Prototype, John Daly’s Cameron Circle T

Some truly superb stuff floating around in the Classified forum, per usual. Just a couple of examples of the drool-inducing hardware that’s up for sale.

This limited run Piretti Copper putter.

    Any club with Callaway and Apex printed on it is cursed.

    +1 with ooffa! Reed makes my skin crawl. Reminds me of those spoiled rotten entitled kids I remember from junior high. And lose the doo dad designs on your pocket pants! Looks like a
    Solheim Cup entrant. What’s next, Callaway designs on your cheeks?! Top 5 in the world?! Yeah right!

    No one is becoming a fan of Patrick Reed. There is not a more disliked person on tour. Surprisingly every time he opens his mouth he makes you hate him more.

What GolfWRXers are saying about Titleist’s TSR2 7 wood

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Titleist’s TSR2 7 wood. WRXer ‘manima1’ is taking his first dive into the 7 wood market, and wants to hear how our members have enjoyed the club from Titleist.

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.

  • BigUrsus: “i have. spun like a lob wedge and peaked at 160′ height.”
  • nitram: “I’ve had one for a little over a year. I bought it to replace an Exotics CB2 (2007) as balls hit with modern 7WD’s are flying further. I have it lofted down (C-1) and have basically replaced my 5WD with it. It covers the gap I need and is easier to hit well. I recently tested the TSR2 & 3, 4 and 7WD’s as well, and I prefer the TSi’s.”
  • Lobber: “Put a 7 wood in the bag in the beginning of the year.  Stealth 7 Wood, Ventus Velocore 7 Red.  Love it!  Have not hit the TSR2 7 wood but am gaming the Driver and it’s fantastic.”

Long irons vs hybrids for the better player – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether long irons or hybrids are the optimal choice for the better player.

WRXer ‘MikeDeJong33’ plays off a 3 handicap and is considering switching out a long iron for a hybrid or crossover, and our members have been sharing their advice and experiences in our forum.

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.

  • Lumpy930: “I made the switch earlier this year and dropped a 4 iron. Hybrid is easier to launch high and provides more versatility for me. It takes some adjustment but getting better with high cuts for approach shots and a flatter shot for tee shots. One handicap for reference with 110mph driver swing speed, and I just didn’t feel like I had enough speed to properly hit 4 iron and the hybrid has been great. 27* 5 iron and a Titleist hybrid playing at 25*.”
  • jvincent: “I will offer the counter opinion. I still have a 4i in the bag. Am I less consistent with it than I would be with a 4H? Probably. But I have much better trajectory control with the 4i than I do with my 3H. If I need to hit a low one, especially when I have to go under tree branches (hey, it happens), I’m typically reaching for the 4i.”
  • outnumbered: “I made the switch to hybrids to replace 3&4 irons a couple of years ago and am in the search for 5 iron replacement this offseason. The yardage gaps have leveled back out and allow for a higher landing angle helping to hold greens. I am a 6 index, have similar yardages, and am old enough to feel no shame with a bouquet of head covers if they help me score better. I am scared that I will someday need to replace 6 iron as that is my low escape “elite punch out” club.”
  • jomatty: “It was a no-brainer for me. My handicap is similar to yours, and I’m just not fast enough to gap a 4 iron properly with my 5 iron (and that’s not even talking about the ones I clank)… It goes further but carries about the same, which makes it difficult to judge. Going to a 4 hybrid gave me much more consistent distance control and much more confidence that every 200ish shot will be reasonable. The misses are just much more consistent. The trick for me is finding one that doesn’t go left. Some just seem not to behave with my swing.”

Spotted: Callaway 2+ Mini Driver hits USGA conforming list (Phil Mickelson’s ‘mystery 2-wood’?)

Published

on

This week, Callaway’s 2+ Mini Driver landed on the USGA conforming list.

The blacked out new addition features a distinct lack of branding, a Flash Face SS22, weight port, wing-style shape on the sole with a recessed cavity at the rear of the sole.

The club contains 2+ Tour etched on the head and has a loft of 10.5-degrees, with our members speculating that it is a protoype of the  ‘mystery 2-wood’ that Phil Mickelson had in the bag back in 2020 during The Match 3.

Here’s what our members have been saying about the new Callaway 2+ Mini Driver, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • RCGA: “Interesting the loft is 10.5*. Must be some sort of smaller head, higher headweight to fit you into a 43.5-44″ shaft.”
  • Lemonade: “Let’s hope this isn’t a tour only offering.”
  • Viper4425: “This club looks really good. but just curious, would someone be carrying this in addition to a driver? is this supposed to take place of a 3 wood?”
