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’s the most forgiving and longest driver you’ve played in past 5 years? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the most forgiving and longest driver they’ve played over the past 5 years. WRXer ‘bogeykibg’ poses the question and also asks “does forgiveness mean shorter?”, and our members have been sharing their thoughts on the subject 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.

  • Kai Slater: “The Callaway Rogue ST Max driver is the most forgiving/long driver that I’ve personally tried.  It’s my current driver and, although, I see no reason to change, I’m very curious about trading up to the AI Smoke when the prices drop later this year.”
  • Ger21: “Srixon ZX5 LS MK II. Remarkably forgiving.”
  • scooterhd2: “If we are talking about average on course distance, and not max distance, or good hits on a sim, then its G400MAX. Theres no rollout in the woods or the lake. Hit em straight.”

What club purchase has more impact on overall game: Driver or putter? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether a driver or putter purchase has more impact on the game of a player who regularly shoots in the 70s.

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.

  • hammergolf: “It’s always baffled me that guys will spend $500 at the drop of a hat to hit it 8 yds further, but will balk at spending that same $500 on a putter that could improve their score much more.”
  • WipeyFade: “I think with both it’s more about forgiveness than anything. I guess it would depend on which you mishit the most. In my opinion the only difference between a 10 year old driver and a new driver is going to be the forgiveness level. Same with putters.”
  • rooski: “The technology of a newer driver will do much more in forgiveness than any putter technology that has come out since they were shafted with wood (other than maybe L.A.B, that’s some real stuff). That being said, if you currently don’t like your putter, I would upgrade it first given that you seem to enjoy your current driver. If your current driver/putter are roughly equal, I’d go driver first.”
  • sheepdawg: “I’m a whole lot more finicky with drivers. I can putt pretty decent with most anything. Driver has to suit me just so.”

Most forgiving players irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing players irons. WRXer ‘NorthTXGolf’ is on the hunt for some new irons but is putting a priority on forgiveness, and has reached out to fellow members who have been sharing their thoughts and advice on the subject 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.

  • Sam217: “i230 has got to be one of the most forgiving players irons available. Cobra King Tour another. Don’t sleep on the New Level 480 DB coming out soon.”
  • RangeBaller: “ZX5/ZX7 and i230 should definitely be in your testing pool.”
  • YAMS49: “Another I210 homie here… Very highly recommended if you want/need spin and a consistent yardage.”
  • golf-RN: “I second the Cobra King Tour irons. I am not the greatest ballstriker by any stretch of the imagination and I find the King Tours very forgiving. Toe strikes might lose 5 or 6 yards with no directional loss. You definitely feel the miss though lol but mishits from the center aren’t punished too hard regarding distance.”
