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.

Your favorite Scotty Cameron…ever!

CameronProto

Simple enough question. Numerous possibilities. Plenty of passion. An excellent thread in theory turns out very well in practice as mattd1206 asks for WRXers favorite Scotty Cameron models. Check it out if you’re a sucker for Scotty.

Forged + forgiveness + beauty? 

Mizuno_MP_18_Irons

Different golfers. Different handicaps. Different wants and needs in a golf club. Mfm22 is looking for a forged iron that offers a measure of forgiveness and is aesthetically pleasing? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and forgiveness in a forged iron is highly subjective, so this is an interesting thread to peruse.

See the thread.

How common is using fewer than 14 clubs? 

OUUL_Super_Light_Stand_Bag_Top

14 clubs. If you were just coming to the game of golf, you’d think that was a lot, wouldn’t you? How many weapons could you get by with if you had to? Five? Six? Spartan6910 poses the question to the forum faithful: Do any of you carry fewer than 14 clubs (and why)?

See the thread.

Jack Nicklaus’ Rolex

Fantastic stuff here as the Golden Bear tells the story of a Rolex (the only watch he’s ever owned!) that he’s worn since the 1960s. Ebrasmus21 spotted the video on Hodinkee and shared it with the community. An absolute must watch, and the forum chatter is top-notch as well.  

See the thread.

Peeping PGA Tour tax documents

Ever wondered what the PGA Tour’s (non-profit organization that it is) Form 990 looks like? Ebrasmus21 (again!) dug it up. And while the form itself is interesting, it’s the five pages of hot takes from GolfWRX members that are worth your time. Interesting stuff.

    I hate looking at Scotty putters cause they are just bling for suckers who think more expensive is better performance. It’s only for status show and copying the pros who they love.

    I just love the Scottys with all those paint-filled lil’ holes and the big bright circles too. Soooo cooool

    I hear all the time about Scotty Cameron putters nothing more than copies of Ping Anser model. That may be true but Ping putters I believe haven’t been up to standards since years ago. I currently have 2 Newports one being a Buttonback which I have always wanted and got one a year ago. Ping putters no longer have that clean look. Scotty Camerons although pricy hopefully will stay true to the classic look just like Jacks Rolex

      Yes, the ‘look’ of a putter is paramount. Personally, I still use the Titleist Bullseye putter and you can’t get any more basic than that. Since my impact point is consistent, I don’t need the superfluous heel-toe weighting.
      If you need a heel-toe weighted putter that indicates you have a sloppy impact point, e.i. you are clumsy and no amount of fancy putter design will rescue you from your sloppiness…. not even a Scotty…. which is more for show than performance.

      “…that clean look….”? What about all that silly comical engraving all over the Scotty sole and back and painted in multi-colors? That’s gotta be done for childish clowns who want to show off their new garish status toy.

    Scintillating discussion on the main forum re forged + forgiveness + beauty. It’s so insightful and erudite by people whose expertise is exceptional.

    Re “interesting thread to peruse” on forged irons. Here is the essence of the highly informative discourse:
    • Old or New   –  I’m using Mizuno MX 23’s & honestly they are hard to beat –
    Feel wise they are good – I’m sure there is better but  the forgiving part of the equation is important
    • I really don’t want anything larger than the 23’s .. Feel / sound is very important for me
    dull thud / soft marshmallow  is my preferred
    • 2011 callaway legacy black… why on earth they never made these for the US market it beyind me …  they have very little offset, plenty of bounce and they are ENDO forged …  marshmellows galore
    • I can’t remember the exact size of the 23, but the Srixon 545 is a pretty legit contender. Little bigger, but very little offset.
    • I was going to suggest Srixon 545 (slight bias) or Callaway Apex. Ap2 can get thrown in there, too.
    • Epon
    • Nike 2014 Pro Combo’s
    • AP2’s
    • Love my AP2s.  Can’t believe how forgiving they are when I don’t hit it pure.
    • Never played the MX23’s but have played numerous other Mizuno blade models – 23’s are supposedly great clubs from past reviews!
    • I tried ap1’s a while ago  good distance , feel  eh!  but they are cast  , Srixons that I have tried have pretty wide soles .
    The mizuno 850’s do seem like the best / closest  [ from 23’s ]  but that boron ??
    • 850 forged are beautiful in the bag. Honestly i get complimented on them on a lot when i play with different guys. They look even better with a few dings
    Also quite forgiving. Longer than normal blade length and i hit them higher than i thought i would
    • MP55.  JDM only but they can be purchased via a the interwebs.
    • I’ve played the MX23s, then the MX300’s and now have the MPH5’s in the bag. They may fit the bill for you.
    • I am like a broken clock.
    Macgregor vfoil 1025m, or mc. (Blades or blades/CB blended)
    Awesome clubs.
    • Apex Pro, Cally Forged 2013, Apex Forged, Apex MB (more forgiving than they look)
    •Nike VR Pro Combo
    • Bridgestone J15 CB
    Cobra Fly-Z+ Forged

    —————-
    Ah, the sharing of club-love experiences and pride. It’s a great game!

    I have a fake Scotty and it performs well. I think it’s made from die-cast zinc and I feel no balance nor impact differences from a real Scotty. It cost $60.

    • Gil

      Sep 22, 2017 at 2:25 pm

      Me too, and nobody suspects the difference and if they do I tell them. There is no performance difference between the Scotty and my copy. The only thing they can be proud of is they paid $300 more than I did just for the status and ego boost.

    • Brian

      Sep 22, 2017 at 7:39 pm

      That’s not a fake ‘Scotty’, it’s a SCUTTY. Look again and you will see the ‘U’ almost an ‘O’.

      • O.B.

        Sep 23, 2017 at 3:35 pm

        I got a SCUTTY too and it’s perfect. Sets up good, swings flat, good balance, sweet hits, and a lot lot cheaper than the real thing.

        • Big Mo

          Sep 25, 2017 at 11:06 am

          Where can I find a Scutty? I don’t see any on eBay.

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.”
