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.

What club do you consider your weakness and why? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing their shortcomings. WRXer ‘Jjfcpa’ kicks off the thread explaining why his woods are an issue, saying

“I would consider my weakness to be woods. I only carry a 5w because I found that I can’t hit my 3w any further than my 5w, and I get better dispersion with the 5w. I probably need to get fit for a 3w to see if I can find something that will perform better, but as of right now, I just don’t take up a spot in my bag with a 3w. 

It’s probably costing me when it comes to scoring because on long par 4’s or par 5’s I generally have to play for an up-and-down because I just can’t get on the green in regulation. I am playing from the right tee… only have this problem if the par 4 is over 380 and the par 5 is over 500.”

And our members have been sharing their weak spots and why they are having issues with those clubs specifically.

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 driver for sure. It’s gotten fairly playable, but it still isn’t consistent, and there is little faith in it. I am keeping it in play more than not. But I have fairly reasonable faith in the rest of my bag.”
  • Kmagnuss: “I agree with the lob wedge (60 degree) guys… Taking a full cut from that distance just has ‘skulled into the lake behind the green’ written all over it for me. I’ll choke down a SW, thank you.”
  • 2ndCut16: “Lob wedge – 100% mental as well. On the range or in the SIM, I’m fine, but on the course, good chance I will duff or skull it. No other club do I struggle like that with.”
  • AP76: “Most definitely 3 wood for me, which it’s why it’s been extracted and replaced with a 2 iron! Driver not exactly my friend either a lot of the time, so I tend to hit a lot of long irons off the tee.”
  • Esox: “Driver is my weakness. Irons and wedges keep me in the hunt. Zipcores ( 50 & 54) are almost assured of an up and down from 110 in. Lob wedge (58 degree SM7) gets played only as needed, but we get along just fine. Still need a driver to love me as much as those zipcores do….. I am just too inconsistent with the big stick. It’s the golfer, not the club……”

Best irons for tight fairways? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best irons for tight lies.

WRXer ‘Bogeyboy15’ is down in Florida playing on some tight lies, and his current irons aren’t doing it for him. He reaches out to fellow members who have been sharing their iron picks that are most suited to tight fairways.

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.

  • scooterhd2: “Srixon. Great off tight AZ fairways.”
  • lefty1978: “Any Mizuno blade made in the past 20 years.”
  • toddba11: “Wilson Staff Blades 2020, thinner sole, but nice for tighter lies…and not that hard to hit.”
  • wam78: “Wilson Staff MB or CB. Fantastic irons! The CB have a little more forgiving sole but not overly wide. They have a really nice sole that glides through the turf. Had no issues with them in Dallas playing off hard pan.”
