Rory McIlroy not looking forward to Olympics as he’s ‘not a very patriotic guy’ – GolfWRXers react

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been reacting to comments made by Rory McIlroy, showing his lack of enthusiasm towards the Olympics.

The 32-year-old will represent Ireland next month at the games and has revealed that he is “not a very patriotic guy”, that he doesn’t know if there’s “much to look forward to” and is playing at the games because he feels it is “the right thing to do.”

Our members have been discussing McIlroy’s comments 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.

  • One Putter: “Why does it feel like Rory doesn’t really care much about golf anymore.”
  • 3whacker: “IMO Rory needs to step away from reading the self-help books, they have just cluttered his golfing mind, they might have done wonders for his personal life and self-awareness, but if you listen to his pressers, he is always talking like someone who has just been thru a therapy session with a shrink…the over-analyzing over his golf swing and the mechanics and what he is working on has got him so tied up…maybe he needs to see a sports psychologist to free him up from all the other psychobabble because when he plays pure golf, he comes real close to being unbeatable.”
  • Pepperturbo: “There are a lot of people that like Rory, but I am not one of them. My dislike began years back when Tiger influenced him to dump his manager to switch to Tiger’s mgt company, and it resulted in Rory’s breaking an implied contract and big court battle. Never followed it to see how it settled but haven’t bothered with Rory since. So, what he said in that interview and another interview is sad but not surprising. Rory is all about Rory, and I don’t think there’s much to him.”
  • Go Cougs: “Yes, it is a weird thing for him to say. I see Rory as a pretty apathetic guy though, so not too shocking.”

    Stopped liking him after some of his recent political comments. Also, years ago he said he identifies more as an Englishman than Irishman.

Best shallow/low to the ground hybrid – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking shallow hybrids. WRXer ‘Bunta’ is on the hunt for a low to the ground hybrid and is open to new or older options, and our members have been sharing 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.

  • A-A-Roncc: “I think shallow faced hybrids and fairway woods is synonymous with Ping. Not sure what other modern hybrids would be significantly shallow compared to others though… As far as older models go, Tight Lies commercials come to mind.”
  • SwingMan: “Ping G425, and don’t worry… hopefully. Or Tour Edge Exotic. The Ping, though, is very consistent.”
  • PanchiCab: “As you said before, any ping would be great as they are designed with shallow faces, I recommend you to try also Titleist tsi2/ts2/h1 and TaylorMade m2/4/6/sim max, but take care of the shaft, most come stock with high launch offerings that have soft tips and that can end up in ‘fore left’.”

Your favorite draw-biased driver and why? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing draw-biased drivers. WRXer ‘Pete52’ recently tried out TaylorMade’s SIM2 Max driver and was impressed with the dispersion, and asks fellow members for their picks for top draw-biased drivers 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.

  • Nelson.br.1515: “I have the Callaway Big Bertha B21 driver and love it. Sounds great, solid distance and mishits are comparable in distance to centered strikes. Most consistent driver I have ever had, better than Callaway Fusion & Ping G400 Max.”
  • Davidv: “If you want a draw driver with good distance, then the Ping 425 SFT is the one. I had it, and it definitely has a draw bias almost impossible to hit a slice or cut shot.”
  • PZero: “M6 D Type. I’m hitting bombs with it.”
  • Wardonation: “RadSpeed XD. No brainer.”
