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

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.

    Are the greens slow? Maybe he thinks a firmer feeling or no insert would help?

    His Versa model may still have the micro hinge insert. There isn't a really clear picture to see the insert as it still looks similar to the Versa insert at a distance even with the micro hinge. phil-mickelson-putter-microhinge-odyssey-o-works-300x300.jpg

    Just in time for the red and black microhinge putter introductions, Phil goes to a smooth face putter. Wonder if it is an old putter from years ago as lead tape is covering OEM name (Ping, Yonex, Titleist?) Can't say he is reluctant to try new or different things. Loved when he changed his whole bag at the Ryder Cup.. "hey tiger look at my new clubs, partner"

    You can tell it's not a Microhinge insert because in the semi-closeup it's all black with a white Odyssey swirl logo. That's a regular Versa insert.<br /><br />

    Phil's putters always have a lot of offset and more loft than usual. He has a significant forward press in his stroke, and sort of "drags" the putter through.

    A milled putter or non-insert is going to put more material behind the ball and make the ball come off "hotter" and faster. Think about the new Ping putters and their grooves, how they take more material away the closer to the middle you go. This is to slow down the ball speed in the correct places so that all of your off and on center hits go the same distance. The greens on Links courses are always slower than normal, because they have to account for potential winds drying them out and speeding them up.<br />
    <br />
    Odds are Phil is testing maybe using a firmer putter so that he doesn't have to change anything in his stroke, the ball comes off faster, thus the roll he "sees in his head" can stay consistent without him feeling like he has to crush every putt hard.

    Phil's putting is interesting, that's for dang sure. He likes to put a "draw" stroke / spin on his putts, which explains the style of putter used, the offset, and why he has the toe up in the air. The man's career has been world class, and he would be held in even higher regards if he wasn't playing in the same era of the GOAT, but man, even as a lefty that tinkers endlessly myself, he does make me wonder sometimes.. lol

    You talking about the ping putters with the machine face milling pattern? Not machine as machined. But machine as in Dave billlings ? Sorry. Just felt the need to point out where that tech came from. Good on ping for noticing a good deal when they bought it.
