What GolfWRXers are saying about Phil Mickelson’s new putting stroke

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Phil Mickelson’s latest change on the greens. During the opening round of the Memorial, Mickelson implemented a pause in his putting stroke which shocked both announcers and fans online.

For those that haven’t seen the new stroke, take a look below:

Mickelson, who didn’t use the pause on lag putts, gained almost a stroke on the greens over the field on Thursday.

Here’s a couple of comments from our members, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • JCADDELL: “Did anyone else notice is today’s coverage of golf that Phil Mickelson pausing his putter on the way back? So strange to see.”
  • gsrjc: “Did you also see how much lead tape was in the putter shaft?”

    Read the article boys ! He gained a shot on the field in putting. Multiple major winning Phil just got an edge again. If he’s clueless you lads are broke

      AT LEAST THE SENIOR MAJORS NEXT YEAR I WOULD HOPE….THEY NEED HIM TO BRING IN ANOTHER 100 OR 200 HUNDRED FANS AS THE 800 THERE EACH TOURNAMENT LOOKS PATHETIC.

    50 year old nerves have ways of doing funny things with you head.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best 3-woods for a high handicapper

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been looking at 3-woods for high handicap players. WRXer ‘Metro07’ is very much a Cobra guy but is open to other suggestions, saying:

“I am 53 and not a long hitter so I obviously don’t have a fast or even moderate swing speed. I got back into golf 5 or 6 months ago after being out for many years and was never really that good back then, I still haven’t broken 100 on a real course. I’m hitting my 4 iron about 175 carry.”

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.

  • Nichex524: “I’d focus on either a 4 or 5 wood honestly… and as far as forgiving goes, most Ping models will probably be helpful enough as far back as the G20 even. Make things as easy as possible, especially if you’re not looking for distance.”
  • ThwFlyingWasp: “I know you’re a Cobra guy, but I swear the Ping G410 SFT is the easiest fairway wood I’ve ever hit off the deck… it’s not the longest out there (by far), but it’s point & shoot easy & great off the tee as well if you tee it down… plus lofts are a little higher than normal to help the ball in the air… 16* 3 wood & 19* 5 wood… it’s like cheating… it’s so good… seriously lol… try them.”
  • Striker Ace: “I highly recommend the Callaway Big Bertha B21 5 wood, IMO it is so easy to hit straight, especially with the amount of offset that this thing has. I use it as my driver also, but it is also easy to hit from the deck. Give it a try!”
