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.
39 through eight holes in my league ... ends in disaster
I know this is not a great round of golf by WRX standards, but for me this was smoking hot. I started Bogey, Par, Birdie and I was heading for a great round (for me). Not sure what happened, maybe I shouldn't of looked at my score. On the ninth hole I pull it left into some trees. I'm playing a fade this year, starting the ball left and letting it come back right. A left pull is terrible, I don't mind over fades to the right, but the left miss is a no no. So I proceed to make a bad decision. Instead of just punching out and playing for a bogey at worst, I feel my inner Tiger. I know I can full swing this bad boy. Play a swooping hook back to the green, well no. I'll keep it short, I ultimately make a 9 on the hole shooting 48. Just wanted to vent. sigh....
