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 or PM's. 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.

Golf, Walking, Leg Cramps & Mustard

If anyone doesn't know about it Mustard (also pickle juice) helps quickly relieve muscle cramps. Having walked more often than normal in the last 10 days I just had a leg cramp episode in the office that sent me sprawling out of my office chair trying to ward off the cramp I could feel coming on. Luckily I work in an office that has plenty of mustard as we are in an area where soft pretzels are popular and sales people often bring a bag of soft pretzels and mustard to go along with them. I hate mustard with a passion except when I have a leg cramp. I refuse to try the pickle juice as the only thing I dislike more than mustard would be pickles.<br />
<br />
Many of you probably already know about this little trick but for those that don't hopefully they remember it if they ever get in a situation where they have sudden muscle cramps. I had heard about the pickle juice before but would rather suffer through a muscle cramp than drink some pickle juice. The sales people could stop bringing so may soft pretzels (I can't resist them) but they can bring as much mustard as they want.

    Hats, try this. It's an old Amish recipe and has worked for me as well as the quinine pills did in years gone by.<br />
    <br />
    Drink this prior to going to bed after exerting yourself and you won't wake up in the middle of the night screaming for mercy.<br />

    Mix 8oz. Apple cider vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon garlic juice, & a pinch or two of ginger. Drink two tablespoons and enjoy a good night's sleep.

    Whoa...... I think the mustard option sounds least challenging. For me it seems to be hydration the night before followed by even more water in the morning before golf - but I may consider grabbing a mustard packet to go with my cheese crackers at the turn.

    On a serious note, I carry Nuun tablets in my bag I generally throw one in my water bottle sometime late on the front 9 or at the turn and try to drink it over the span of a hole or two. Here in the Desert staying hydrated is critical and it's challenging to do with just water and no electrolytes. The Nuun tablets have seemed to help me stay more hydrated then when I was just drinking water alone.

    Hydration the day before and mustard before going to bed. I also started doing 2 exercise classes a week and do not wake up with the horrible leg cramps that I had in the past.

    Quinine water. But yea. Drink more to start with and you wont get them.

    Funny old mans tale that my father in law believes in. Sleep with a bar of ivory soap under the sheets With you. I asked him if still had leg cramps. He said “ sometimes. “. Which left me speechless.

    Potassium and magnesium and electrolytes. Also, you need to hydrate to flush the lactic acid from your muscles after walking

    Yeah it's a little known fact but the mustard actually works. But not for the reason most people assume it's actually the pungent taste that distracts the sub conscience. Many cramps are in fact caused by a neurological trigger. Stretching tight muscles more a strain than the exercise in many cases. Sounds like BS to me also, I spent 15 years as an ER nurse, heard it all. But the mustard works, used it myself in last few years. A regular stretching routine, with exercise, would guard against most cramps. Prehydration always advised, if out in high heat, or very ardous activity is planned. But if you're out of shape and get smoked on the course, or starting an exercise regimen, and get bad leg cramps. Teaspoon of mustard to the rescue.

    It's most likely the vinegar that helps with the cramps. #gobirds
