***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.

In the winter, I will have a shot before the round to warm me up. While playing, yes and no depends on the company. 19th Hole - almost always.<br />

    Pretty much always unless I'm playing by myself or it's really hot out. I have a high tolerance though so most people would have no idea. I'm not out there to get sloshed lol. Just to relax and enjoy myself.

    Always have a few during rounds these days. The game, for me, changed from a sport with a devoted pursuit of improvement to a leisure activity when my second kid came and my rounds and practice time plummeted. <br />
    <br />
    I'll tell you that since those days, the rare times I get out are more enjoyable than when I played a ton. I used to walk off the course miserable that I shot a 77 and these days I'm happy to get out, have a few beers, aim to break 100 and pray I shoot in the 80s <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    I usually only play leagues and tournaments so we drink a beer before and a couple during a league match. I don’t drink during a tournament round unless I’m playing horribly and then it is more just to enjoy the rest of the round. Post tournament rounds usually involve a beer over lunch and telling stories from the day.<br />
    <br />
    I grew up in Utah and when I was a bit younger I had a horrible anxiety problem on the first tee. To combat this I would usually get 2 beers and slowly drink them while warming up for tournaments. There is nothing funnier than walking into a Utah golf course snack bar and seeing the old lady’s face when you order 2 beers at 7:00am before a Sunday tournament. Priceless.

    Nearly always some beer bets to settle afterwards. During the round only if birdie whisky is applicable.

    If I'm playing solo, I may have some swing sauce during the round. Never with my regular group as one of the guys is 13 years recovering. Anything more than a couple beers or one shot and my game, such as it is, goes in the tank.

    depends on who I'm playing with at the time. At work-associated tournaments i may have one drink the whole day. If i'm playing with some of my more serious friends we might not drink at all. My other golf buddies we might be shotgunning beers after the 3rd hole. In general i do like having a beer or cocktail during and after a round but I don't like getting to the point where I'm buzzed or worse.

    I don’t drink and golf. Maybe after the round, but more than likely I do that at home not in the clubhouse.

    After the round I'll have a beer/beverage with the group. It is proper golf etiquette to do so.<br />
    I never consume alcohol during my round as even one half a cold one brings down my game.<br />
    Now on the other hand I do occasionally consume another relaxation item while playing.<br />
    That substance does not interfere with my golfing ability one bit. But there wasn't a box for it in the Poll.<br />

    Before, during and after for me. My normal routine is have a couple at home starting two hours before the round. Get to the course 45min prior to tee time, go to clubhouse and change into shoes, etc. Grab a cold one and go to the range. Hit 2 sand wedges, 2 pws, 2 8i, 2 6i, 2 4i, 2 2i, 2 3wd, and 4 drivers. Then head back to clubhouse and get a refill. Stroke a few putts, head to the chipping green and knock a few bump and runs out there. Maybe a flop or two. Head to the half way house and grab a a four pack and a bag of ice for the front. Another 4 pack on the back. A few in the clubhouse afterwards and a drive home from a friend and do it all over again the next day. I honestly don’t know how people play without drinking. Just something I haven’t done in 15 years now.

    It depends on who I am playing with.<br />
    <br />
    If I am playing with a good friend we tend to down a few spicy caesars or Gatorade and vodka during the round.<br />

    I have been trying to get away from drinking on the course. Usually becomes a sh!tshow after a while. But it also depends on the company. Certainly always at the 19th.

    I dont always drink at the course but on an occasion a little something in my coffee or a mixer in the afternoon. <br />

    In my younger days it was the green bud that burned all day but its just too potent for me and doesnt float my boat.

    I like to gradually work my way up (~1-2 drinks per hole) until I have difficulty walking straight (usually happens around the 12th hole).<br />
    <br />
    The game becomes particularly challenging at this point. But I've learned that if you can learn to play decently under these conditions, playing sober is a breeze.<br />
    <br />
    It's like putting into one of those really small holes or swinging with a weighted club. Once you go back to normal, it just feels really easy. Gives you a huge boost of confidence. <br />
    <br />
    Also drunk golf does wonders for your handicap. Just show up for the club tournament and play sober. Voila. Club champion in the net section 5 years running.

    Never drank on the court all the years I played pickup basketball, never drink at work, never drank coaching soccer or Little League, never drink while hunting, always viewed golf as something I don't need alcohol to enjoy and not to interfere with like work or other sports. That's just me. <br />
    <br />
    19th hole a good place for an occasional beer with friends. <br />

    have tried to drink while playing (keeping up with playing buddies) i have learned i can have 2 on front & 2 on back and i will play ok, anymore than that and the wheels fall off & start doing silly shots like stepping up to a 180m shot from deep rough with a 58* LW (and thinking i have the ability to make that actually work).<br />
    <br />
    so for 2019 i have decided to limit my brewskies on the course, after 18 thats a different ball game.

    When I was playing mostly tournament golf, I did not drink on the course. Those days are long since gone for me, so I can range anywhere from no drinks to a 12 pack through the round, depending on the day. I usually have a bottle of something in my bag that will eventually make it's way into my hands at some point during the round as well.
