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.
Cut down TS3 51” Irons or Flynn Irons?
Hi, my 6 YO has improved more than expected and I feel like I owe him a proper set of clubs. Currently, he’s playing a full set of mixed used/new UL 48 from different generations, and 3 used Flynn wedges (52/56/60). His 7/9 irons don’t even match his 6/8 in terms of design but they’re all UL 48’s... Tournament wise he’s doing well in the locals having 5 consecutive wins. Also, his first practice round in San Diego over spring break placed him somewhere between 10th-17th according to the results from past 6 years of IMG Jr. World. He likes his 6 iron best and has been asking for a 4/5. I know there’s no way he has the power to hit a 4 iron, but 5 might just be ok. He carries his 6 iron 65 yards and ball rolls out to 75-80 at the moment. I’m looking for suggestions on whether I should go with a 48” set of Flynn’s or a cut down set of 51” TS3’s. He’s 48” tall with shoes on and weighs 48lbs. Thanks
