Matt Kuchar putting RIGHT armlock at the 3M Open

Published

on

Matt Kuchar has been a long-time proponent of the armlock putting technique, and at this week’s 3M Open, Kuchar is set to tackle the greens by adapting to a right arm method.

The 43-year-old debuted the right armlock earlier this year at the Masters, but the technique quickly went away as Kuchar found little success with the method.

However, it appears Kuchar is once again ready to trust the quirky putting method, testing it with zero loft on his putter, and it’s a technique that has left our members more than a little perplexed.

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.

  • toddyc: “Looks completely absurd.”
  • Tupperwolf: “It just looks… so awkward… Every shot in golf has the hands ahead. I can see using the feel of the right hand swinging the putter.. but this is, like, hands behind the ball. I understand sometimes you need a new feel, but this is like nothing else in golf. He looks contorted in an uncomfortable way.”
  • daviegolf1991: “Looks so uncomfortable, could imagine the arm and back being very sore after putting like that all day. I don’t get some of these pros, you play golf for a living, how hard is it to just keep it simple. I agree, all these anchoring methods need to stop.”

What did your handicap do after changing irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the impact new irons had on their game and handicap. WRXer ‘2Down’ kicks off the thread with his recent experience, saying

“I changed Irons a bit ago, and while I haven’t seen a huge change, I believe things have stayed the same, and that’s a good thing. 

First and foremost I have maintained a fairly low handicap as I age. I think that, in a similar fashion, while I’m not longer with driver X from nowadays compared to the ago days. Driver I am near as long as I once was. Modern drivers have helped me stay long, so far. Now I believe the same is true with my irons, modern distance drivers and irons have helped me.”

And our members have been sharing their different experiences 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.

  • Jamie_Tee: “Gained 2 strokes per round. More shaft than head, but I’ve got a combo that allows me to hit the shots I see.”
  • Spankapotomusredux: “Cobra F9 OL. Dropped my handicap from 24 to 19 since March of this year. Regularly hitting the mid 80s this year for the first time in 20 years. Not fair to put it solely on iron play, however. I updated my whole bag when I started playing regularly again for the first time in a few years.”
  • North Butte: “My handicap is three strokes lower than it was four months ago, that was when I most recently changed irons. There’s been more going on than just that equipment change, though. I’ve adopted a slightly different way of playing short game shots in that same time frame. Taking a couple golf lessons for the first time since before COVID has to have helped, as well. But I’d say, conservatively, there surely has to be at least a stroke or so of that improvement due to the clubs. Not enough to get excited about but it ain’t nothing!”
  • Jifmoli: “No change. Went from SGI clubs to GI clubs but hc stayed the same. I did drop 9 strokes last year but that’s because I found a golden tip for chipping.”
  • lefthack: “Nothing, but my level of enjoyment has improved 3 points.”

How many adjustable clubs in your bag? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing adjustable clubs. WRXer ‘tannyhoban’ has one adjustable club in the bag (driver) and is curious to see how popular the feature is amongst fellow members who have been sharing their setups 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.

  • Tiptx1122: “I have my epic Max driver and my Epic Max 3W and 5W as those have moveable weights. Oh, I forgot my Piertti Potenza Elite putter has changeable weights too.”
  • lefthack: “3, but I haven’t adjusted anything other than the lie angle. Driver, 5 wood, and utility 3 iron.”
  • ChipNRun: “I was shocked to find only two: my driver and my hybrid. The season prior to COVID, the driver, 3W, 7W, and two hybrids were all adjustable. Driver and hybrid are now both different models.”
  • CpatainPat: “Zero.”
