***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***

Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***

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.

Sik Arm Lock

Anyone using the Sik Arm lock? I've been using the Odyssey, at 40"/7loft/72lie.

Before I went to arm lock, I liked 34.5"/69* lie. I'm just confused on what to get with the Sik. I know they like you to be much more upright, which is fine. I've subscribed the "Stan Utley" method for years, meaning upright, flat.

Also, I'm left handed, but play right handed, so I like the left hand to do most of the work, but under pressure, this leads me to take it straight back inside, and yip up. I haven't had this problem with the Odyssey, but fell the Sik might setup for me a little better.

Any input would be great!

THANKS!

    I love my Sik armlock. Mine is 43” long and I got a custom 79 degree lie angle (I’m 6’6”). I used a Bettinardi kuchar2 for a couple years, went back to conventional putting last year (fail) then bought the Sik. Just finished a round with 28 putts, my least ever.
    As for the left hand controlling the stroke, I think this is the key with armlock...I’ve gone to left hand low with the armlock and that has been the difference maker for me.

    I had similar questions and emailed them from the contact info of their website...they had me call and we talked through options. I’d say ask them before me, as I would just be guessing...

    I did call, didn't get much clarification, but at least they were available to talk!
