***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.

Slicefixer. Any updates? Anyone still working with him?

As the title implies would be interested in hearing if anyone is still working with Geoff and is anyone is still improving using his teachings. Thanks.

    Haven't heard much about him around here for a couple of years. I plug the Encyclopedia Texarkana occasionally and remain a huge fan of the 9-3 drill.

    I have his Texarkana book printed out and read it quite often. Just a wealth of information.

    The encyclopedia is pretty good. But his following sure seems to have died down?

    I still talk to Geoff regularly but not often. He's still doing his thing. Last summer he came to NJ and spent a week teaching at my club there. He also followed my daughter at the state am which was really nice of him.

    I moved to FL in December, so not sure when I'll get to see him next. One thing's for certain IMO, there are not many people who possess as much knowledge about the swing and how to teach it. I wish he still contributed here

    Had a chance to go visit Geoff about 6-7 years ago and had to cancel last minute. To this day, I am still bummed I didn’t get a chance to go work with him.

    As an instructor, I spent a few days with him back in 2010 I think...
    Great experience! I consider him a great mentor, friend, and colleague...

    I'm a huge fan and visited Geoff in 2013. If I was closer than Canada... I'd love to visit him 3 x annually. Great guy. Fantastic teacher. Very much helped my game.

    Cheers,

    Yes. Good guy... Just re-watched the DVD he gave me. Tweaked my grip a bit today. Also focussed on the set up angles...

    Into my 4th year with Geoff, I've been going down for lessons 3-4 times/yr. He's the real deal, no bs. Started with him at 56 yrs/age, was tired of playing hot and cold. Hcp has dropped from 8 to 3. No short cuts, a lot of grinding. Geoff will tell you exactly what you need to do, the rest is up to you.
    Geoff's knowledge of golf swing is second to none. His ability to coach and bring out the best in a student is first rate. Now if I could just get rid of the day job and play golf 5d a week....

    On -, @liaidton. Seeing GJ three to four times a year is a big commitment both financially and amount time but I think it’s worth it!

    It's probably best for his sanity that he stopped. It's SO hard to convey stuff in writing. And on this board you'll end up down a rabbit hole trying to justify/explain/clarify things. I think he genuinely wants to help as many golfers he can, but this is the worst possible method to do it. He can spend literally 15 minutes crafting a clear concise post about a proper grip that 50% of people will get wrong or question. Or he can literally draw lines on a glove in 15 seconds with a student. (Which he did on my trip there.)
    The ET was considered a 'bible' of this teachings by a lot of people here. Yet he said 85% of the students who read it and saw him were doing it incorrectly.

    It wasn't like he needed the business from WRX. He stays pretty busy. And IMO, his style is best for those who can see him on a regular basis

    As I said, I haven't seen Geoff in over a year, but I still subscribe 100% to his ideology and reach out to him with questions on occassion. I primarily went to Geoff for help with my daughter when she was still a junior. She's now in her third year of college playing DI on a full-ride at a great school. Much of her success I credit to Geoff.

    My improvement was mostly a side effect. Knowing due to geographic & budgetary limitations we'd only be able to see him occasionally, Geoff was selfless in teaching me what I needed to know to keep my daughter on track between visits. It was kind of a "train-the-trainer" type deal. The result was a significant transfer of knowledge that has helped me understand the golf swing and apply the elements required to continue to improve. He really is a great friend at this point, not just a coach.

    Anyway, I'm 51, and recently moved to FL from NJ. I still do my 9 to 3s and employ all of Geoff's fundamentals. My swing doesnt necessarily look like those of his top juniors, but a trained eye would note the basic elements. I did not play golf as a kid, started in my late 20s.

    I have 4 bogey free rounds this year including a round last week where I hit all 18 greens in regulation and shot 66. Had never done that before (18 GIRs). Prior to seeing Geoff I was a perennial 6-7 HC. I've since won several club championships and have done reasonably well in some State and local tournaments and even tried for the US Senior Open this year (shot 77 in qualifying 😰). Next revision I'll likely be in plus territory (currently 0). I'm pretty confident there aren't too many out there who have made that significant of an improvement between the ages of 44-51 😊! Credit & props to Slicefixer.

    Thanks, and yes, I'd say we're both Slicefixer success stories to varying degrees.

    In terms of improving, I would say the keys are: conceptual understanding, attention to detail, quality reps, patience, and perseverance. Most guys I know won't even put in the time and attention to detail to simply get their grip right, let alone the rest of it. Most revert back to "what feels comfortable " as soon as they step foot on the course, thus never making much progress. Kids are much more malleable, and Geoff does a wonderful job of bringing them along systematically.
