FTF: What Should A Caddie’s Role Be?

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.

Brand loyal…or nah?

WRXer mizuno2 (can you guess his stance?) poses the question: Are you brand loyal or not so much with your golf equipment? Could there possibly be value for your game in playing equipment from one maker? Great discussion here. See the thread.

Should The Players take the PGA’s spot?

Outlier both proposes The Players Championship should overtake the PGA among the four majors on the PGA Tour AND suggests there will be a major in Asia within 10 years. Genius? Insanity? Plenty of hot takes in this one. See the thread.

Most complete player under 30

Jonsnow takes a break from the Night’s Watch to ponder who the most complete player under 30 is. His suggestion is an interesting one: Thomas Pieters. The idea that Pieters is a more complete player than, say, Jordan Spieth wasn’t exactly well received, and there’s plenty of great back and forth in this one. See the thread.  

The role of caddies 

U.S. Open - Final Round

One of the great questions in golf: How important is a good caddie and what should the role of a caddie be? Does a good caddie help read putts or plot strategy? Should he? MaddMaxx isn’t a fan of big-time caddie involvement, ala Bones or Michael Greller, and he makes his case to kick off this thread. See the thread.

Running shoes instead of golf shoes

J2putts tells this story:

“I have a pinched nerve in my front foot. I’ve spent HUNDREDS of dollars on just about every brand of golf shoe. When I’m at the range ..I wear running shoes and I can hit balls for an hour with no pain. The problem comes when I’m at the course. When I have golf shoes ( spikeless) they cause my front foot to grab too much and I get pain when my weight transfers over to my front foot.”

He wonders if golf shoes are more trouble than they’re worth for some golfers. Especially in an age where most shoes look like sneakers anyway. A good discussion. See the thread.

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing 2021 utility irons. WRXer ‘Krod10359’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“Just want to know your opinion on what new utility iron you have hit this year. Looks like a lot of solid offerings out right now from Ping, Srixon and Callaway. Let me hear what you have to say about these clubs.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts 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.

  • hypergolf: “This…(photo above)”
  • TigerInTheWoods: “Sim Udi is a beauty. Launches a bit higher and is a bit more forgiving than the P790 UDI which was really the benchmark for this kind of club.”
  • craz-e: “Hard to go past the Srixon for performance and value. The current offerings from Titleist (u500 & u501) and Mizuno (HMB) are also great options and worth trying.”
  • Golfingfanatic: “The new Callaway one is pretty good.”

15 clubs in the bag? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether the limit of 14 clubs in the bag ought to be upped to 15. WRXer ‘Hybrid25’ kicks off the conversation, saying

“Why not, you still have to make the shot no matter how many club options you have? What are your thoughts on the subject, and would you like to see the limit go up by one club? More than one club?”

And our members have been having their say 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.

  • LeoLeo99: “14 is fine the way it is. I find the 14 club limit perfect. Makes you think a little in how to strategize your bag and gaps. I could get by with 12.”
  • caniac8: “I’d rather go with fewer than more.”
  • Strategery: “I absolutely would support 15+. There should be no limit. Good for my enjoyment. Good for the equipment industry. When you think about it, it’s really silly that there is a rule to a *game* which caps your fun.”
  • Gohigh: “I’ve carried 15. I’ve carried 16 before. I still only use 10 maybe. If you got the back for it, then go for it I say. Rule should be that if you carry more than 14, you have to walk.”

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been giving their thoughts on Cleveland’s 588 forged CB irons. WRXer ‘bennowick’ has been eyeing up the irons and wants feedback from our members who have been sharing their impressions on the clubs 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.

  • Drewhill44: “Played them before I got my Bridgestone j15 CB’s. The 588 CB’s are very good irons…soft feel, great look behind the ball. They performed well for me.”
  • DixieD: “Had them, loved them and sold them for no reason. Hit em well!”
  • RyanBarathWRX: “Endo forged, micro-milled face, super soft, crazy value if you can find a nice used set – These were the last forged irons Cleveland did before ( Cleveland/Srixon) went full bore with Srixon irons in the US and other than the sole grind Tour VT are the pre (X)45 series blades 945s and cavity, the famous 745.”
  • gwelfgulfer: “Nice irons, clean look.”
