Forum Thread of the Day: “The dynamics of the partnership between Jason Day and Steve Williams”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from MountainGoat who delves into the recently formed partnership between Jason Day and Steve Williams. MountainGoat mentions how their collaboration looks to extend far beyond a regular player/caddie relationship, citing how Williams appears to be “instructing Jason on what shots to hit,” as well as “suggesting equipment changes” — in the form of a new softer ball. Our members discuss MountainGoat’s theory and share their thoughts on the partnership.

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.

  • JAMH03: “Guess JD is a “we” guy. Which totally makes sense if SW has spent 20+ years with some of the world’s elite he does have relevant experience to draw on for JD or most anybody I reckon.”
  • 00steven: “This might be the right thing to save Jason Day’s career. Not that it’s horrible, but he has a lot of potential. Seems to me he’s trying hard to impress Stevie too.”
  • bspn: “The mental side of the game has always been one of Day’s biggest weaknesses. His pre-shot visualization and breathing routine is painful to watch at times, so if SW can help anywhere it will be cutting out the crap and just hitting the shot – Day clearly has the talent so getting rid of some of the BS and just playing golf might be good for him.”
  • dalehead: “If Stevie can get Jason on the right track I’ll give him his due. Until then, I’ll continue to believe it’s easy to build a reputation as a great caddy when you’ve toted the bags of players like Ray Floyd, Greg Norman, and Tiger Woods.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “Jason Day is one of those guys that benefits more so than the average tour player from a great caddie. Many of the legends of the game consider Steve Williams one of the best caddies, if not the best. It has the potential to be a great relationship.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best club/clubs for a 5-year-old beginner

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing club options for a 5-year-old beginner. WRXer ‘CaseJ’ reaches out to fellow members, saying:

“I’m looking for a lightweight 7 iron for my 5-year-old daughter. I purchased one of these a while ago, but it has a standard head on it and is way too heavy. For her, it’s trying to swing a sledgehammer. 

Any idea where I can find clubs specifically designed for kids?”

And WRXers have been getting involved and 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.

  • FellaHeen51: “For a 5-year-old child? A putter. Easy for them to wield with a bit of instruction. They have fun knocking the ball around on a practice green. That’s been my experience with my grandson this summer past. Then add an appropriately sized PW. Learn from the green back.”
  • 76mpg: “US Kids clubs.”
  • Vater: “FWIW, I started my five-year-old with a hybrid that was the right length for his height. It was kind of dumb luck where it was one of the few clubs that fit him and wasn’t a toy at my local golf shop. From what he’s told me, the size of the head made him feel like he could hit better. That experiment was a success, and I quickly got him a whole set (Wilson) with a driver, short iron, wedge, and putter. Conveniently again, starting with the hybrid was a good way to go because it was a club that wasn’t also in the set. Good luck on your journey – my boy and I have been hitting the range regularly together for almost a year, and I think it’s one of the best things you can do to get your kid outside at that age.”
  • Bizzie80: “Check junior golf threads. Lots of starter info. Get her the U.S. kids yard club for her height and a putter from them to match. All you need to start her off.”

‘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.”
