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 peek behind the curtain into golf’s sanctuary.

Jordan Spieth vs. Justin Thomas

Here’s one from the Ultimately Pointless but Nevertheless Interesting files. Cwin asks: When their respective careers are done and the days of SB2K grow small in their respective rearview mirrors, who will have had the better career: Jordan Spieth or Justin Thomas? See what WRX members are saying.

How many full bags of clubs do you own?

We’ve looked into how many sets of clubs GolfWRX members have purchased in the past, so this is a little riff on that bit of general curiosity. Jasonnc asks his forum brethren (and sistren) how many full bags of clubs they own. He has three: gamers, backup/travel, and a set for friends. Join the discussion.    

Best fairway wood of the deck? 

callaway-golf-big-bertha-steelhead-iii-4-fairway-wood-steel-shaft-uniflex-7c9e403b2b10a347ca5982b0197b2e71

Appropriate topic, considering we just published our member feedback on the new Callaway Steelhead XR, heir to one of the finest off-the-deck fairway woods in history. Sergio9603 asks for the forum consensus on the best fairway wood to hit out of the fairway (past or present). The replies are plenty interesting and vary widely. See the thread.

Are speakers on carts becoming more common? Should they be?

Golf is changing. Perhaps for the better, or perhaps not quickly enough, depending on who you ask. One manifestation of this change: the preference for listening to music while golfing (via bluetooth speakers, etc, not via Al Czervik golf bag radio). TheyCallMeVinnie wonders just how common it is. Join the discussion.

Danny Willett: least distinguished major champion ever?

2016 Ryder Cup - Singles Matches

Look, we don’t like the “worst major champion” debate, although it has found its way into FTF in the past. Here’s an interesting rhapsody on that theme: Is Danny Willett, the 2016 Masters Champion, the least accomplished golfer to win a major in the modern era? Five times a winner on the European Tour, the Masters is his only PGA Tour victory. Interesting discussion. See the thread.

    How about Norman’s collapse versus Faldo at the Masters? Much worse versus Adam Scott

    Willet didn’t win the 16 Masters – Spieth lost it

      Willet shot a bogey free 67 on Sunday. Sure Spieth blew the 12, but Willet capitalized in the best way.

      Wrong…..someone did win…

        Jordan lost it. He had a 5 shot lead going into the back 9…
        Adam Scott at the Open Championship is the only guy with a greater collapse

          Masters doesn’t begin till the back nine Sunday.

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.”
