The GolfWRX forums exist so golfers have access to the latest equipment releases, hottest discussions, real equipment reviews, best instruction, new technologies and everything golf you can imagine. So if you love golf, the GolfWRX forums are your sanctuary.
In the From the Forums weekly feature, we bring you the hottest, most buzz-worthy topics from our forums for your convenience. I’ll be your trusty tour guide to navigate the latest buzz. Here’s a peek behind the curtain into golf’s sanctuary.
What are you doing to improve your putting?
User danattherock hopped in the “Putters” sub-forum to ask: “So, we talk about putters, which grip, etc.. all day long…Are any of you putter collectors actually working on improving your putting?”
An excellent question. To see what WRXers are doing to get better with the flatstick, check out the thread.
How much would you pay to not have to wait on a shot?
Here’s an interesting question: Hypothetically, how much would you pay to not have to wait over a single shot? In other words, how important is being able to step up and swing to you? User rawdog (and we’re just going to go ahead and assume that nomenclature is somehow golf-related, rather than the more traditionally accepted usage) started the thread and says he’d pay an extra 20 percent.
Of course, this is all theoretical and would never happen unless your foursome was willing to buy the two tee times in front of it, but it’s an interesting discussion of the value (or lack thereof) of not having to wait. See the thread.
Blunt advice needed
We’ve tangoed with this topic before in FTF: How much of an improvement in ball flight, particularly with the driver, will the average golfer see if he buys something off the rack today compared to his 10-year old gamer?
WRXer Playa dedicated a thread to the topic, asking for blunt advice as to whether he should switch from his “obsolete” model and sharing his concerns in doing so. [Note Playa’s driver is not actually as obsolete as the model pictured above]
Who are the true “flushers” of the PGA Tour?
Here’s an entirely subjective question that golf fans have strong feelings about. In other words, fodder for a lively debate. As carn9898 asks: “Who is flushing it most often [on Tour]?” Who knows! What does “flushing” it really mean? Precision with irons? Accuracy off the tee? A particular sound at impact? Great talk, this one.
PSA: How GolfWRX is pronounced
In case you’ve been experiencing some level of anxiety about how to say the name of this website, or if you have been saying “Golf W-R-X” and a friend says, “Golf works,” and you need to know which is right to settle a beer bet, we’re presenting this thread. This isn’t a to-may-to, to-mah-to situation, folks. Check out the confusion in the thread, then say it right: Golf W-R-X.
Also, for the uninitiated there is an excellent thread dedicated to the history and founding of GolfWRX.
