    But what about the downside?

    Oh, right, there isn’t one. Because this isn’t important. Not at all. Good luck to her, or something.

    Good grief….. When these nothingburgers leave, why can’t they stay away forever?

    I agree definitely better than Bobblehead Balionis/Cameltoe Balionis…. but when she was commentating on TGC back in the day… I’d rather watch paint dry… she’s much better in the studio than on the course commentating

    Maybe this time she’ll remember not to say “lynch” again on live television…

    Substantially more credible than the woman (her name escapes me) that interviews players after their rounds. She is really, really, bad!

Reason not to play multiple hybrids? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether players should have a variety of hybrids in the bag. WRXer ‘Jetandollie’ kicks off the thread asking is there a reason not to play multiple hybrids and wonders whether we’ll get to a point where a 6-iron is the shortest iron in the bag for a player:

“Now that companies (Ping, PXG, Mizuno, Titleist) are making hybrids up to 28-34* with several shaft options is there a reason that the majority of us should not be playing them to as high a loft as we can find? 

All of the review videos and numbers always show that they go higher, land at a steeper descent angle and are significantly more forgiving and consistent than irons. 

I get that the main point of rebuttal is too high of a ball flight and playing in a windy location, but over the course of 60-80 rounds per year (1500-2000 long/midiron shots) will the shots saved from the forgiveness and higher launch/steeper decent not outweigh the iron mishits or shots lost in the wind? 

Will we get to the point with the way tech in clubs is progressing that the norm will be hybrids to the 6 or 7 iron in most bags?”

And our members have been weighing in on the topic in our forums.

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.

  • MPAndreassi: “Cleveland has been trying to do this for at least a decade now. I don’t think it’ll ever catch on.”
  • cpang05: “Price. For the average guy I see at the muni, starting with a 4H, 5H, then 6i seems really popular. But those hybrids are half the cost of a full set of irons.”
  • Clubhoe: “Workability. Will continue for as long as I’m able to hit them. Will go to utilities next, then hybrids after that.”
  • Mattm97: “I hit my irons better than hybrid. I think it depends on the person, their game and usage. I have a 3H, and I honestly don’t use it a ton except for certain situations.”

Best bang for your buck wedges? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing wedges. WRXer ‘Nev Adams’ is a left-handed golfer on the hunt for 3 new wedges and reaches out to our members who have been sharing their best ‘bang for your buck’ 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.

  • lefthack: “My Lazrus wedges were $50/each with a coupon. I really like them a lot.”
  • phizzy30: “Mizuno T20 wedges are excellent. Not sure if you’re willing to spend 150 per club, though.”
  • chadwickog: “Nothing wrong with used if you get them in good shape. Maltby is a great option; also look at Sub 70 wedges. The Hogan equalizer wedges are pretty nice too.”
  • PhilsFanDrew: “I also recommend the Maltby wedges from GolfWorks. I was intrigued by the direct to consumer companies like Lazrus and Bombtech, but you have no idea what shafts they are using, and the quality control from these outfits can be suspect. With GolfWorks you can order an OEM shaft, and their build quality is top-notch.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about easy to hit fairway woods

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing easy to hit fairway woods. WRXer ‘Gary3Aces’ is an older golfer on the hunt for a fairway wood that is easy to hit with good launch characteristics, saying

“I’m 69 and have been having trouble hitting my fairway woods. I have an M6 TM 5 wood which I like, but I’m still having trouble getting it up high in the air. Looking for a 4 or 5 wood.

I use a regular flex shaft in my clubs. Don’t have the swing speed I use to have. Looking for something that won’t break the bank.”

And our members have been sharing their choices 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.

  • Hairpie: “I’ve had success with a Callaway Steelhead XR 5W. It has a deeper face than most but is extremely easy to elevate. I got mine from Callawaygolf pre-owned a month ago for $80 in mint condition.”
  • Drewhill44: “Cobra f8 or f9. Both have a low profile to help get the ball airborne, and the rails help with turf interaction.”
  • Markrip: “Adams Tight Lies 2. I’ve had mine since it came out. I haven’t found anything easier to get up in the air.”
