FTF: Best ballstriker on the PGA Tour? Settling the GolfWRX pronunciation debate

Published

on

The 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.

What are you doing to improve your putting?

User danattherock hopped in the “Putters” sub-forum to ask: “So, we talk about putters, which grip, etc.. all day long…Are any of you putter collectors actually working on improving your putting?”

An excellent question. To see what WRXers are doing to get better with the flatstick, check out the thread.

How much would you pay to not have to wait on a shot?

Here’s an interesting question: Hypothetically, how much would you pay to not have to wait over a single shot? In other words, how important is being able to step up and swing to you? User rawdog (and we’re just going to go ahead and assume that nomenclature is somehow golf-related, rather than the more traditionally accepted usage) started the thread and says he’d pay an extra 20 percent.

Of course, this is all theoretical and would never happen unless your foursome was willing to buy the two tee times in front of it, but it’s an interesting discussion of the value (or lack thereof) of not having to wait. See the thread.

Blunt advice needed

SanderonFarmsOldSchoolDriver

We’ve tangoed with this topic before in FTF: How much of an improvement in ball flight, particularly with the driver, will the average golfer see if he buys something off the rack today compared to his 10-year old gamer?

WRXer Playa dedicated a thread to the topic, asking for blunt advice as to whether he should switch from his “obsolete” model and sharing his concerns in doing so. [Note Playa’s driver is not actually as obsolete as the model pictured above]

Check out the discussion.

Who are the true “flushers” of the PGA Tour?

ADAMputterScottHere’s an entirely subjective question that golf fans have strong feelings about. In other words, fodder for a lively debate. As carn9898 asks: “Who is flushing it most often [on Tour]?” Who knows! What does “flushing” it really mean? Precision with irons? Accuracy off the tee? A particular sound at impact? Great talk, this one.  

PSA: How GolfWRX is pronounced

In case you’ve been experiencing some level of anxiety about how to say the name of this website, or if you have been saying “Golf W-R-X” and a friend says, “Golf works,” and you need to know which is right to settle a beer bet, we’re presenting this thread. This isn’t a to-may-to, to-mah-to situation, folks. Check out the confusion in the thread, then say it right: Golf W-R-X.

Also, for the uninitiated there is an excellent thread dedicated to the history and founding of GolfWRX.

    Must be a slow week, the putting thread was started in 2012.

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?”
