FTF: What Are the Best Game-Improvement Irons of 2017?



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.

The Best Game-Improvement Irons of 2017?


These irons are currently leading the vote: Callaway Apex, Mizuno JPX-900 Forged, Srixon Z565 and Ping i200.

Same drill as with the players irons, WRXers. In this thread, we’re asking you to vote on your three favorite game improvement irons of 2017 for our Members’ Choice award. We want you to vote based on your personal experience with the irons. Things to consider include distance, forgiveness, workability, trajectory control, looks and feel.

Then, after you’ve voted, in a post in the thread, explain your reasoning. See the thread and cast your vote.

Strangest Item You’ve Found on the Golf Course?


User Warrick tells a tale of his strangest find (and likely some disappointed stoners). A fantastic thread rounding up some of the most absurd finds from the golf course. See the thread.

Most Significant Tournament Missing from Tiger’s Resume?


Certainly, there are no “holes” on Tiger Woods’ resume from the junior to the professional level, per se. But if you had to pick out a tournament Woods would like to have on his curriculum vitae, what would it be? Plenty of good discussion in this one. See the thread.

You Know You’re Old When…


Beyond watching casual 20-year-old golfers ripping it over 300 yards with ease, there are no shortage of golf-related reminders that we’re not as young as we once were. For WRXer Night Train, who started the thread, his notice was served when his son, a casual golfer, told him his average 7-iron carry. See the thread.

Your In-Season Workout Routine


WRXer Radiman tells his story of weight loss and getting in better shape for golf, but as he says, “I find is that playing within two days of my last workout has proven to be disastrous.” Thus, he wonders how others in the WRX community workout during the golf season. Excellent discussion, here. See the thread.

    900 forged isn’t game improvement. That’s a low-mid capper iron.

      My experiences led me to believe that the Apex’s are more forgiving than the 900 forged. I own the latter because I liked the looks better and assumed I could just improve my ball striking. Classic mistake. Still both great irons but if you don’t have time to practice– I’d recommend Apex.

Spotted: New TaylorMade Carbonwood driver hits USGA conforming list



On Monday, a new TaylorMade carbonwood driver landed on the USGA conforming list.

The driver, seemingly called the Qi10 LS, features a Carbonwood sole, weight port as well as a T logo alignment mark. Per the list, the driver has been deemed conforming in three different lofts: 8, 9, and 10.5.

In our forums, our members have been sharing their thoughts on the news. 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.

  • 54CW: “Pretty cool, I imagine an LS head means it’s possibly 440cc & pear shaped?”
  • jaffabell: “I wonder if Rory will have this in play this week in Dubai – it would explain the timing of this hitting the conforming list?”
  • madaboutgolf: “Usually a full launch from TM. Irons and fairways soon?”

GolfWRX will have its eyes peeled to see if the Qi10 is on the PGA Tour this week at the RSM Classic.

Best driver for a slight toe strike? – GolfWRXers discuss



In our forums, our members have been discussing the best drivers for a slight toe strike. WRXer ‘Z1ggy16’ is on the hunt for a new driver, and kicks off the thread saying:

“Which driver is most stable on slight toe strikes? Not sure why but my TSR2 seems to really lose spin on even slightly toe side hits which makes the ball dive out of the air.”

And our members have been sharing their top suggestions 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.

  • hammergolf: “My miss is toe side, and for me the OG Taylormade Sim Max performs better distance and dispersion wise than any other driver I’ve hit; and I’ve hit them all.”
  • AnthonyC143: “My buddy was hitting good drives with a ton of toe strikes on a Callaway rogue.  I was very impressed.”
  • DixieD: “Ping is the king of toe strikes, however I have found recent Callaway, from epic speed onwards, are seriously catching up but with much better feel off the face.”

What older drivers should companies bring back? – GolfWRXers discuss



In our forums, our members have been discussing classic drivers that they would like to see reintroduced to the market. WRXer ‘mvhoffman’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“If you could choose an “old” driver for companies to bring back and revamp with today’s technology, what would it be?

I would love to see the 2016 Nike Vapor Fly be brought from the dead with some different materials adding stability to make it more playable today and be able to stand up to today’s drivers.”

And our members have been sharing their picks 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.

  • Mike_C: “Original Ping Rapture, I thought at the time it was a real leap forward. Bridgestone J33 460. Maybe the best-looking and best feeling Metal driver I have ever owned. And long, just not super forgiving. If you could make something look and feel the same and add some forgiveness, I would buy it in a heartbeat.”
  • Ger21: “Nike VR Pro LE. Or the Z745 I’m playing now.”
  • ForeRight82: “Nike VR Pro Ltd. Edition. Loved that driver. I still have the 3 wood, which I also love. Sound, feel, etc. Everything was great. Maybe I’ll have to pick up another used.”
  • manima2: “I cannot believe there are three pages here and not a single mention of the GOAT… the 2016 OG M2. Would love to see how that head would perform with a carbon face.”
