***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.

Roll call for Worlds at Pinehurst in 2 weeks

    I see some age groups didn't finish their rounds. Example: Some boys 9 didn't finish their 18 holes including a group that had a scheduled tee time of 12:58pm (and all groups after that)? Did it rain late in the day?

    Edit: Ignore. Saw that they had thunderstorm warnings roll through.

    DONT SAY THAT! Ha. Things went well at Mid Pines Yesterday for boys 7 and 8. Finding the back nine significantly harder than front 9. 29 on front still very impressive, front 9 is still no cake walk. Love the course , it really separates the ball strikers...it’s hard to get away with running it up here. Fairways are in pretty bad shape, but greens are good. So far so good with tmnt operations. We were third to last tee time yesterday and went off just a few minutes late...was expecting much worse but the starter was all business , which is appreciated. Round was slow though, waited EVERY single shot...which I have come to expect here as everyone is grinding hard. Look forward to this afternoon.

    It are looks like weather may have really hindered the first round. Looking at the results it seems like some had it a lot rougher who played later in the day. I am not there but looking at the scores it looked like early on the conditions were great but turned really bad in the afternoon and scores show it.

    And US Kids screwed the fields over again. You would think that who played in the afternoon and dealt with storms would've played in the morning today to avoid them. Nope. They didn't reverse the tee times at all.

    I like US Kids, but some of the things they do are head scratchers. Tournaments when you compare them to other organizations are really expensive for what you get.

    I thought they just rearranged tee times based on place. No?

    Looks like they are not doing that for age groups that didn't finish yesterday.

    GolfDawg texted me that they go off about the same time today in Girl's 11. In fact, I think they go off later and they had a 12 something tee time yesterday. Haven't talked to Darter yet.

    For Boys 9 & 12 and Girls 10 & 12, it states "Round 2 will begin at 8:00 a.m. with the same pairings as Round 1. Round 2 Tee Times are posted online"

    Thunderstorms expected after 5pm. Hopefully USkids doesn't go and start cancelling rounds again.

    Boys 12 who teeed off late first day did not get to finish. They had to wake up early today to finish their round, and then come back later in the day to start their round for the day, with same late tee time as yesterday.

    I'd rather have the first round cancelled and sleep in...

    We had an afternoon tee time today, storms forecasted, but never saw the first dark cloud. More storms forecasted for tomorrow, we’ll see. Remember this is east coast and in the south (ish) afternoon T -storms are expected almost daily. Those in Florida and coastal GA & Carolinas can almost count on it. It’s not all all uncommon for forcast to be way off from what actually happens (like today- not a drop). Just part of living in this region this time of year. Best of luck on R3 to all playing!

    Saw them at a regional maybe 2 years ago now. They had it plastered on the back window of their SUV that he was the world champion. Then played a practice round in the group behind them. Busy course, they are playing 4 balls and backing everything up. They don’t come across as the types that actually have fun out there, was more of a job. That was the impression I got anyway.

    Curious what happened here as well. Have known the kid since he’s been 6 and has finished well at World’s every year. Great player. What does INELIGIBLE mean for a tourney round that’s completed?

    I am just speculating but it sounds like maybe birth certificate may been an issue. Anything else should have said DQ?
