1. TaylorMade SIM

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • “Recently had a fitting, SIM was the stand out performer for me.” -Member craz-e
  • “The thing was seriously nuclear. My clubhead speed bumped up only about 1 or 2 MPH, but the launch and spin were incredible, as well as ball speed. I topped out at 170 ball speed, which I had never gotten before.” -Member filwelix

5. TaylorMade SIM Max

Here’s what GolfWRX members are saying

  • “They did something different this year because these drivers are insanely good… With the SIM Max there is no ballooning into wind, just a fiery straight shot, the G410 Plus has tendencies to spin up on me into wind. Twist Face seems to actually work this time around and I can finally draw with the high toe without having to worry about the random high fade. Excellent all-around performer.” -Member mrmikeac
  • “Sim Max and it isn’t even close for me. Outperformed my G400 Max and my all-time favorite M2.” -Member Haber

At GolfWRX, we love golf, plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment of the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball. It even allows us to share another thing we all love – buy and selling equipment.

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for a Ping Putter Lab Design (PLD) Prime Tyne putter ($650)

From the seller (@T-Bone84): “Limited edition putter that is very hard to find for less than 4 digits.  It’s a compact head with a super shape, I just love my LAB so much it doesn’t get any bag time.  It is lightly used with original shaft (35″) and a GP grip, headcover and original grip included.  It does have a tiny mark on top of hosel that can’t be seen from address but I tried to capture.”

To check out the full listing in our BST forum, head through the link: Ping Putter Lab Design (PLD) Prime Tyne putter.

This is the most impressive current listing from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

What GolfWRXers are saying about using a pitching wedge as a chipper

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the strategy of using a pitching wedge for chipping. WRXer ‘SkrappyHacker1’ wants to know if anyone else employs this tactic, saying:

“My 44 degree PW is the club I feel most confident with when chipping. I used to use my 50° gap wedge for chip shots but never hit it consistently.”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts and ideas 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.

  • lefthack: “When I first learned I didn’t have a PW, only a SW and learned to do everything with it. Now I have 3 wedges, but use my 52/8 for almost everything inside of 30 yards minus heavy rough or sand, then it’s 56. But my PW is good for everything from 100-30 yards.”
  • FootWedge16: “A majority of amateurs would shoot lower scores if they used bump and runs with an 8, 9, or PW in almost every situation that doesn’t require a flop.”
  • PJE: “Depends upon the shot you want or need to hit and the green contours and speed, but if it’s working go with it. Several years ago, people often chipped with pitching wedges, 9 irons, and 8 irons. It’s less common today. I think because today’s club lofts are stronger. Many people also play game improvement irons which can be chunky and kind of awkward for chipping.”
  • DavidCrockett: “I choose the wedge with the appropriate bounce (and sometimes grind) for the intended shot. These are far more important to me than loft.”

  • scooterhd2: “Still gaming my first driver (above photo). I’ve cheated on it a few times but keep going back to it. Worn grip, epoxy rattle, and all. Just goes straight for me.”
  • electroleum: “The first driver I had with a proper set of golf clubs was a MacGregor Dx Power Pyramid driver. Had the full matching set.”
  • jwhite86: “My first real driver was a Taylor Made 360… bought it right after the 500 series came out… let a friend try it at the range, and it immediately got a sky mark…”
