***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.

    DD drop ships, meaning they don't actually control the shipping. If they said 2-3 weeks it is because that's how long it will take the manufacturer to make/send the clubs.

    in my experience, DD actually had the order shipped to them and then they ship it out to the customer. i thought drop shipping meant the manufacturer ships directly to the customer.

    Your understanding of drop shipping is correct. I've had five different club orders from DD and every single order was drop shipped; I've never received anything directly from DD. I live in Texas, so maybe DD only drop ships to certain states.

    E-mailed them Friday about a set of Ping i210 irons. They got back to me within a couple of hours, and also answered my other questions ( emails) in a very short amount of time. I ended up ordering a set from them, and was quoted 3~4 weeks. Not holding my breath on that though. Anyways, I appreciated the very timely manner in which all of my emails were answered.

    My PXG order from Discount Dan's was sent from PXG to DDs and then from there to me in Texas, which it seems is how it worked for most for PXG orders. It may be manufacturer specific on whether they drop ship directly to consumers or whether they have to physically handle it at some point in the transaction.

    if you got custom irons, then it really depends on the manufacturer...during these covid times, ive experienced both shorter and longer than estimated delivery times from the same manufacturer
