I have been a member of this forum for a while now, but have just recently started getting into it. However, I am very big into tour player, club info and photos, and have noticed every time I search for prototypes or future product lines on Google, GolfWRX comes up with photos. I just joined GolfWRX earlier this evening, and am still waiting to be "approved" so I will have posting and searching privileges.

I think I will still use this forum a lot, but with my focus more on the "what's in the bag" and other tour talk GolfWRX seems like it would be more enlightening.

How many of you use GolfWRX?

Thanks

I use Golfwrx and Bomb Squad Golf. (BSG) Golf wrx seems a more civil forum and Bomb Squad is hustling tour equipment for low handicappers. IMO (also, lurk more than post, I 'm looking for input not worrying about putting my opinion on anyone else.) Of course, I have just done that but I just answered ur poll question.

I use Sand Trap and Shot Talk. I'm not a fan of huge forums - I feel as if I need to bump my thread three times a day lest it fall into obscurity, five pages back.

I really like the sandtrap, mainly because I have been a member for several years on another forum that also uses vBulletin.

I guess I just got used to the format and function of the vBulletin DB's.

I do like some other large DB's for the content, but prefer the ones powered by vBulletin after spending so many years with it.

I hate golf wrx--if you say something that "they" dont agree with they kick you out. The SAnd Trap is the best forum in golf bar none in my opinion

The Sand Trap has a much easier volume of postings to keep up with. GolfWRX has been driving me nuts recently with so many near identical 'I'm this handicap, can I play these irons?' threads. In both cases it would be better if newbies were better at searching before starting new threads on already covered topics.

Amen. I enjoy GolfWRX but rarely post on it. I prefer the general tone here. "Friendlier" isn't really the right word, but it's something like that. Also, GolfWRX's interface makes my eyes bleed. I find it impossible to spend more than 20 or so minutes over there.

Uhm, I prefer this one. Go figure.

BTW, this forum is smaller than GolfWRX on purpose. I'd kick people out and limit post counts if we ever became as busy as GolfWRX's forum.

Also, GolfWRX is a Sand Trap partner. Our articles are automatically posted there, in fact.

    • About 5 years ago I used to play a reverse scramble with friends. It was a game that had to be played in the evening when the course was quiet. There might be an official name for this game, or it doesn't exist because it takes too long, but its great fun. Instead of taking best ball, worst ball counts. I have never played it with more than 3 to a team because it would just take too long. Realistically, it can only be played if the team consists of lower handicappers, add a player with double figures at your peril. Putting is the most difficult as the worst approach from the worst tee shot is normally quite a long putt. Although all 3 players try to lag it as close as possible, the team normally faces a tricky 4 or 5 footer which in turn all 3 must hole. Get my drift. Have any of you every played this? It's a great character builder.
    • I understand keeping the Northern states off the list. Winter stinks up here.  But 115F is no picnic either. Neither is 95 with 90 RH. My friend who lives in Vero Beach, FL in the winter says golf there in the summer is brutal. He leaves in May for NH. My niece lives in Phoenix and she says summer is unbearable. I would think the best places would be where you can play all year comfortably. Hawaii, the Carolina Coast and West Coast California. It can get cool on the coast, but it doesn’t snow that much in Charleston.
    • I don’t mind different grips, but within each of these club types, the grips must match: Fairway woods hybrids irons The different grip types in these categories often gives me a semi-conscious tactile reminder of the slightly different swings for the club types, if that makes sense. 
    • My iron set is: 6-9, PW, AW and SW. According to the 85% figure (8i relative to driver) that has been thrown about, my distances seem in line with the norm. I am guessing that with most golfers perhaps 9i would be the club that would be half the length of a driver on average.
