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

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best hybrids for under $100

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing older hybrids. WRXer ‘Collegefbfan’ is on the hunt for a hybrid and also wants to know how WRXers decide on which hybrid to replace which iron, saying:

“So, any older used hybrids that do a great job (not breaking the bank $100 or less per hybrid)? Does a beginner golfer usually replace the 2, 3, and/or 4 iron with a 2, 3, and/or 4 hybrid? Or does one around the middle of those usually do the trick?”

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.

  • DaltonSTL: “What GolfWRXers are saying about the best hybrids for under $100.”
  • Markrip: “I have a Cobra F8. Easy club to hit.”
  • animalgolfs: “Go find Cleveland Halo or Hi-Bore hybrids…..on the cheap & perform exceptionally for the beginner.”
  • Mattc555: “I agree with the Ping option. Really any G series model will work fine.”

$3k bag vs Lessons for a 15 handicapper – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been debating whether a bag of clubs worth $3k would be more or less beneficial than paying for lessons for a 15 handicap player. WRXer ‘Fairwat14’ kicks off the thread with the question:

“Will a 15 handicap player shoot lower scores and, or, enjoy the game more if he spends $1,500 on his bag of clubs plus another $1,500 on a dozen lessons and lots of practice range balls? Or, will he get more enjoyment by spending $3,000 on his gear and nothing in the way of technique instruction or practice?

* both of the above options assume that the clubs fit the player reasonably well.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts 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.

  • TLUBulldogGolf: “Depends on the goal, to me enjoyment comes from playing better, so I would say the lessons provide the best chance of doing that, especially for a 15 handicap.”
  • Phizzy30: “Split it 50/50. A 15 handicap can def get down to single digits. It’s a matter of good instruction, practice and properly fitted clubs.”
  • Bentron: “This is GolfWRX the only answer is to spend $3000 on the bag.”
  • dubbelbogey: “From the perspective of improving one’s scores, this isn’t even remotely debatable. Lessons are several orders of magnitude more beneficial than gear. However, there is a segment of golfers who are so obsessed with gear that having anything other than what they perceive as “the best” will always gnaw away at them, and they won’t enjoy the game as much until they have that setup. However, the truth is that these gear freaks will never truly be happy with their gear as they’re chasing the end of the rainbow.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about TaylorMade’s SIM 2 driver

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the SIM 2 driver. WRXer ‘Getitdaily’ wants to hear from people who currently have the club in the bag and is interested in hearing their experiences as well as the specs they are utilizing.

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.

  • jallen0119: “I switched to the Sim2 about a month ago (though I have only played a few rounds with it due to my kids’ baseball schedule). I hit the Sim for about 6 months prior to that. Sim2 is 10.5, and my Sim is 9. I have the Ventus Black 6S and used it in my Sim. Distance is similar, though I do feel that my Sim was a tad longer (that takes into account the different lofts). I like the feel/sound of the Sim2 more. IMO, the Sim2 is more forgiving. Now that my schedule is becoming a bit more normal, I plan on doing some testing with the Sim2 on a launch monitor and a side-by-side comparison to my Sim.”
  • Titleist84: “Owned last year’s SIM and this year’s SIM 2 Max. Last year’s SIM was slightly longer, but the SIM 2 Max is way more accurate.”
  • The_Champ: “Sim2 10.5, Ventus Black 6X tipped 1″, 45.5″ end of grip, sleeve set to lower. Typical shot shape is a slight push draw with miss being a push out to the left (lefty). Picked up significant (3-5 mph) in club speed and ball speed over my M5. Dispersion is a little all over the place at the moment, with many shots tailing to the right. Been in places on the course this year that I’ve never been before as far as distance goes, though. Sim2 to me is much more forgiving than the original Sim.”
  • Mattpgolf15: “I work for Taylormade as a demo tech, and I will be the first to say Sim is far better in my mind than Sim2. Sim, to me, feels more solid off the face and creates a stronger ball flight. Sim 2 is too spiny and seems like my shots curve a touch more with it. Just my 2 cents.”
