Forum Thread of the Day: “Who has the smoothest swing you’ve ever seen in person?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Hankshank, as he asks fellow GolfWRX members what the smoothest swing they have seen live is. Plenty of players get a mention, and for different reasons, but for our members, Ernie Els and Fred Couples are quite dominant in this category.

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.

  • Johnnypenso: “I saw Fred Couples at the Canadian Open back when he first came on tour.  His real swing looked more like his practice swing.  I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how he got such distance out of what looked like a slow and smooth swing.  Looks are deceiving I guess.”
  • playa: “Not a huge name golfer but John Senden has the most relaxed, rhythmic swing you would ever see. Like the Bruce Lee analogy of letting your body be water, Senden becomes the golf swing.”
  • 95124hacker: “Go to an LPGA event and watch petite young women drive the ball 250 effortlessly.”
  • 15th Club: “With all due respect, I think that anyone on this board now, who is barely old enough to have seen Sam Snead play at a time when he was not yet well into his sixties; that is the one, pure, shining example.”

    Underrated, but, people always wanted to swing like him because he was very consistent, is Bruce Lietzke

    Sam Snead. He could reach back and really bomb it and you didn’t see the effort. This all with older equipment. Players had to swing smooth to hit that smaller sweet spot. Thanks for putting up this question.

    Take a look at Wild Bill Mehlhorn. Google . ““lLost Swings Biill Mehlhorn”. See Hogan’s quote about this player! All joints bent , relaxed. As they should be!

    Seve Ballesteros could swing as smooth as anybody IMO.

      Yeah because he wasn’t too concerned about where the swing directed the ball, he was more concerned about spraying it all over the map with that unique and strange action of his lol

‘Replacing my old driver’ – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been putting forward suggestions for ‘Bite335’ who is looking to replace his old driver. ‘Bite335’ is on the hunt for more forgiveness than his old gamer (Ping i15) and feels that a change to a newer driver will help. Our members have been putting forward 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.

  • Olddoncarlo: “Get a pre-owned Titleist TS2. You won’t be sorry.”
  • GolfTurkey: “FWIW, I would start with the TSi3 for a similar shape but more modern forgiveness. Then you could try stuff like setting the hosel to C1 and/or putting the weight in one of the toe settings to help with the left miss.”
  • T Creer: “G410. They are $400 new and adjustable.”
  • Davidv: “Ping G400 Max should do it for you.”

Best combo for a high launching 3-wood? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing combinations to find the perfect high launching 3-wood. WRXer ‘Nick_E’ is on the hunt for a combo that offers low spin in addition to excellent launch capabilities, and our members have been sharing their 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.

  • Veners: “I had the same problem until I got the TaylorMade M4 15 degree with the stock shaft in stiff flex. So easy to launch off the deck, worth trying second hand as you can always sell it on for the same price if you don’t like it.”
  • ode: “This is not an apples to apples as it was in my Tour Edge CBX 5w, but the Mitsu KK Silver dual-core tini 70 in S flex launched high, and trajectory has high. I swapped shafts to an NVS 85 which brought the ball flight down quite a bit. The KK was not loose feeling, but I was not comfortable with the flight. I should have stuck with it as I hit some amazing shots with it, but it was so different than what I was used to, as I am a low ball hitter.”
  • scooterhd2: “TSi2 with Oban gold.”
  • pricenicky: “Get a 15 degree 3 wood adjustable – move it to 16 and get a stiff tip medium mid section shaft about 75 grams. Recommend Epic SZ with GD DI 75 STIFF.”
