***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***

Update 8/17 - New board going live today.

Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***


Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Rory McIlroy = WITB January 2020

    Looking forward to watching McIlroy this year. Hopefully he hits the ground running as he always struggles badly after time off. Showed again last year that when he's on form he's unplayable. Interested to see how the new driver settles in as his driving accuracy always drops slightly for a few tournaments after switching each year.

    He loves to bounce back and forth between models. Last week it was the MAX, now the standard lol. DJ is the same way.

    Man, I hope he goes with the hybrid. I don’t really know why, I just hope he does.

    Interesting the tour SIM hybrid heads don’t have full face scoring lines. First time they haven’t changed up the face for tour. They did it with the SIM Max fairways, so was surprised to see this today. Unless it’s more of a PR stunt since they got early traction with DJ bagging it and had to rethink their whole hybrid strategy for the year as a result.

    Its impressive to me they get these guys to switch so easily. I feel like I would I be more hesitant in their position, I mean Rors was best in strokes gained off the tee last year by a landslide.

    However, we love to see it here, hope it works well for him.

    He has been at or near the top of that stat for years now, so I imagine his confidence in that department is fairly independent of the tools being used. Must be nice, eh?

    I'm guessing the 5 wood might swap out the hybrid on occasion. I don't recall him ever gaming a hybrid. Would that be a first for him? Would love to see his numbers with each in comparison.

    I think he's going to have a big year.

    Rory said in his press conference that he switched drivers at 4PM yesterday. The 9° was too closed for him. He went to 10.5° and opened the face 2°.

    I think the Rory hybrid shock is hilarious. And I’m as traditional as you can get. Just stop calling them hybrids. They are simply 5-7 woods of yesteryear. Look at the size and shape. Haven’t been a hybrid anything in years.

    That hybrid shot out of the bunker into the par 5 in his third round was insane. To hit that shot I would imagine he has some confidence in the club and it’s not for marketing.

    Do the pros have access to flatter heads? I'm like identical size to rory and can't figure how he gets his driver to sit so level. My M5 has the toe way up
