You know the drill, GolfWRX Members. We want you to pick this year’s best hybrid. Click through to the thread and vote for hybrid you liked best. Then, offer your feedback in the comments. Click here to vote.

Did you switch drivers in 2017?

Did you swap out the ole 1-wood this season? EKELLEY (who clearly likes ALL CAPS) is on the fence about doing so, and he wants to know who’s had success…and with what. “I need HONEST answers here,” he writes. Who has switched drivers this year, from this to that and made SERIOUS gains?”

Are there “serious gainers” among the WRX readership? Check out the thread.

The “No-Sight Line Club”

Peculiar? Brilliant? Arbitrary? Most putters come with sight lines or dots. Some golfers, however, can’t stand the things. What gives? Find out in this thread.

If you could interview any pro…

Jordan Spieth go get that

Here’s an excellent question: If you could interview any current professional golfer who would it be? What would you ask him/her? Medic votes for John Daly. To see who other WRX members want to talk to, check out the thread.

Golf-related “OCD”?

No disrespect intended to those with the certifiable and unfortunate mental disorder, this thread is dedicated to those golf things you “have” to do. Clean your clubs after every shot? Mark your ball in particular way? Some more than others, but we all have our peculiar tendencies. This thread is dedicated to our “OCD” golf habits. See the thread.

    It is indeed a tricky club to really measure which is best and which isn’t. We compiled our ranking a bit earlier in the year (www.golfassessor.com/best-golf-hybrids/) and the Cobra we found being the common denominator. But hybrids are probably the most unique in terms of fit to a particular player.

    There are no ‘best’ hybrids; only best golfers who can play with most any model clubs.

Best looking pear-shaped 3 wood of all time? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing pear-shaped 3 woods. WRXer ‘GolferDude54’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“I was interested in knowing what 3 wood in the present and past do you guys think has had the best looking profile at address and is pear-shaped to boot, i.e. Titleist 906F2. Like you look down at address, and it just oozes of being aesthetically pleasing to your eye. You can even post more than one 3-wood and a list as well if you are torn between this and that.”

And our members have been sharing their best 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.

  • Dill Pickelson: “I owned the 906f2 and agree it was a perfect looking 3 wood at address. I currently play the rogue st ls 3 wood and also think it looks great at address. This is exactly how I want a 3 wood to look, no triangular 3 woods, no closed face or slight offsets. I also liked the Ping i20 3 wood. It sat very nicely behind the ball.”
  • hammergolf: “Hard to beat the Titleist PT. Had one in the bag for almost a decade.”
  • Boogs2: “I’ve always liked the Nike T60. Still have one with the steel shaft. Loved how deep-faced it was.”
  • puresurfr: “Titleist 970, love the shape, and it was like a sledgehammer when hit on the screws. Honorable mention for Nike T60.”

Are blades really ‘punishing’ or do people swing too hard? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing blade irons. WRXer ‘ChunkItGood’ questions whether blades are actually overly punishing, and kicks off the thread saying.

“I just heard a guy on tv quote John Anselmo (?) who apparently taught Woods to the effect that ‘you can hit the ball as hard as you want as long as you hit the center of the face and stay in balance.’

If people followed that rule, would they have to worry about punishing’ mishits? Shouldn’t they, instead of getting more forgiving clubs, just stop swinging so hard they cannot hit the center of the face?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts on the matter 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.

  • BagOfToast: “I find that a lot of the time I’m not hitting the center I’m just swinging too fast, so I’d agree with swinging too hard.”
  • iknowbagu: “It’s not mutually exclusive. Yes, blades are more punishing on off-center strikes. Yes, people swing too hard.”
  • jomatty: “Blades are punishing. I’m not sure that most players do better when they try to swing easy. As long as my tempo stays good and I don’t get quick from the top, my most consistent strike, with everything wedges, is one that is very close to as hard as I can swing. If I try to make that same hard swing and my tempo is bad, or if I try to make an easy swing and my tempo and sequencing is bad then I have lots of problems.”
  • Phabs: “Believe Tiger’s dad said that to him, not a coach. Swing speed had nothing to do with contact point. I can swing slow and hit a ball like crap, or I can swing out of my shoes and have the same result.”

Starter irons with a $200 budget – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing beginner irons on a budget. WRXer ‘Chch3’ is looking to build a set for his friend, and kicks off the thread asking:

“My question what iron set from the past would be good to get for $200. I have always played blades, CBs, or players clubs, so I am not up on the good game improvement clubs. I was thinking about getting him a set of pings, but I don’t know which ones are better than others. Any help will be greatly appreciated.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts and 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: “Ping Eye 2.”
  • dmeeksdc: “I’ve done what the OP is doing. The Adams lineup of irons are really fabulous clubs for very little money. The Adams Idea Pro Forged is a larger CB with tungsten weighting and a triple radius sole that feels fantastic and is as forgiving as any iron. Also has a nice top line, and the shape is great. I’ve in the past given a set of these as a gift to a player just starting out, and I think the entire set was $150. Pretty incredible for the quality of that design. The MPF numbers on it place it as game improvement. High MOI, low and deep CG.”
  • xkilgorextroutx: “You could also probably pick up some Wilson D100 or D200 irons in that price range, plenty of Adams and Tour Edge irons in that range too that are a few years older. Callaway irons and the many times mentioned Ping Eye2s also.”
  • 596: “For a beginner… Any Ping G series. I played the Ping G10 as a beginner and used them down to a 2 handicap.”
