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.

Best way to store/preserve golf gloves

    Having grown up playing hockey, and the smells that come from player's bags that weren't opened since the last game, the thought of sticking a sweaty glove in a sealed bag makes no sense to me.

    For me, I let it hang dry on the outside of the bag. That said, I don't sweat as much as some and my gloves never get truly soaking wet. Damp at most.

    Generally, leather gloves respond pretty well to a good cleaning with dish soap and very thorough rinse. Sure they dry a bit stiff, but soften up pretty quickly after putting them on and flexing. This gets the salts flushed out and I think helps them last longer, overall.

    I also use a simple Ziploc bag to preserve my gamer gloves.

    I’ve always just clipped mine on my bag. I’m surprised people seal sweaty gloves in a zip lock.
