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.

Hi all- wanted to reach out and see if anyone would be willing to donate a set of sticks for an 11 year old boy that I mentor through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program of Orange County (CA).

I've taken him to the range a few times, and also to the Toshiba Classic champions tour event, and he is eager to learn the game.

I'd pick up the tab myself but recently laid off so things are a little tighter than usual here. He's a normal sized guy for his age I think, maybe around 4 1/2-5 feet (guess I can text him or his mom to be sure), right-handed. I can pick up anywhere within an hour or two (I live in Newport Beach), and I can also provide proof I'm in the program.

Thanks and best,

-Andrew

    I have some older US Kids Tour Series 6. Driver, 6, 8, P, SW.

    The driver is 41 inches, 60 gram graphite shaft, not a noodle, IMO, but who knows with boys and girls these days with swing speeds.

    6 iron measures 35.5 maybe a hair more from the grip to the base of the heel, just as an example.

    No idea if these are appropriate. I had offered them to someone else who was looking and never heard any more about it, so happy to send them your way if you think they are useful, and they may not be what you are looking for and that's fine. Just sitting in my garage.

    Hey man, thanks so much! I think they might work- I'll ask the boy's mom again today how tall he is. It's been a couple months since we connected due to Covid so it's hard for me to estimate.

    Where in Iowa are you? I am going to visit my brother in Des Moine later this week (July 9-14), in case I could meet you.

    Best, Andrew

    Was just down there but live quite a ways from there. Just send me a PM if they might work and I’ll ship them out as soon as I hear. Again if not, no problem. And if you get them and they aren’t right just donate them to another kid.
