Forum Thread of the Day: “Justin Rose thinks four majors in four months is bad for golf. Do you agree?”

Published

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from MMB1500 who highlighted comments made this week from Justin Rose who believes that the new schedule which sees four majors in four months is “too condensed” and not good for golf. Our members have been sharing their thoughts on the matter, with plenty of members both supporting and rejecting Rose’s claim.

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.

  • Z1ggy16: “Kind of agree. Once the Open is over this year, there’s really not much else to “look forward to” as far as exciting tournaments go, for me anyway.”
  • CDLgolf: “I agree with Justin, hard to believe the major season will be done after this weekend. It also seems to me that the new schedule is making the top name players play less. Taking three weeks off and only playing in the majors. I’m sure this schedule makes the most money for the tour, and they’ll be done before football starts, which is what they want.”
  • bspn: “I always thought the old schedule was too compressed around this time of year with The Open > WGC > PGA all within the space of 3 weeks and then right on into the FedEx Cup playoffs. This year has felt much better paced to me, albeit with some of the big names skipping regular events they would otherwise play in order to get enough rest between majors. The other benefit of the new schedule is they’ve got rid of that awkward break right in the middle of the FedEx Cup.”
  • Big Ben: “The PGA being the last Major has always felt like a dud. I like the new format. The Open Championship this year is far more exciting.”

    They should get rid of the FedEx Cup and the silly playoff format. It’s meaningless and it’s the very thing that gets in the way of everything else on Tour, actually, which made this schedule feel condensed and busy. Throw that in with the Olympics next year and Ryder Cup all getting in the way, there is too much intensity in golf that golf can’t actually handle for the players to be consistently strong.

      i could care less about the fed ex cup…but it gives us 4 tournaments end of season where all the top players play at once….not sure why golf fans would want to get rid of these tournaments. yes, seeing the fedex cup standings in feb is annoying, and yes claiming it decides the season champion is dumb… but its usually 4 good quality tournaments and beats some random tournament that top players skip.

    Disagree completely. I think it has been the most enjoyable golf season so far because the majors are happening every month. Let’s be real, the Players Champiohship IS a major. So, you have majors every month starting in March and. Ending with the playoffs 6 months later in August/September..

    Then you have the wrap around season in place of the meaningless SKINS games they used to have and you have year round MEANINGFUL golf.

    Great job PGA Tuor.

    I agree with Rose 100%.
    On July 21st, the major golf championship season will be over.
    And why?
    So they can start the stupid FedEx Cup in August.
    And then they won’t have to go head to head with football.
    And then they’ll get bigger TV ratings.
    And then everyone involved will make more money.

  • 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.”

  • 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.”
