***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

    Where are u guys seeing this?

    Boys 11, all the way at the bottom. Kid shot a 3 day total of 216 (T12) but it says INELIGIBLE

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

    Could be but he has also played in every world championship for the last few years never out of the top 10.

    Is has to be something about the application for the tournament. If it wasn’t then you either see WD or DQ.

    To me the only thing that possible make a kid is ineligible is a fake birth certificate or perhaps birthday was during the tournament and they didn’t play in the correct age group.. It hard to imagine anything else. Perhaps someone had dirt and decided to use it and point out the issue. Also it could be they accepted money from someone and violated amateur rules but I can’t figure out how that would happen without it making some sort of news.

    Either way something strange is up with that kid.

    That should a be DQ if that was the case. I would highly doubt US Kids officials checking a specific driver and then even ruling on it. These clubs are mass produced from Callaway so no way it would be issue.

    It was a joke. But you could ask one of the tour pros about those drivers. Just got DQ’d from The Open a couple weeks ago.

    Nobody is testing drivers at a kids event.

    What's weird is that he has no JGS ranking for being such a good golfer.

    What would cause someone to become INELIGIBLE after three rounds of championship golf?

    He signed an incorrect scorecard day 1. He (or someone) realized it the following day. In normal tourneys that would result in a DQ. In USKG events DQ infractions result in the score of 10 being applied on the hole(s) where the infraction occurred (in this case, #8 day 1).

    I’m not sure why that resulted in the “INELIGIBLE” listing at the bottom but am certain that is the cause.

    I dunno, but that doesn't sound right. If any scores are deemed incorrect, it is and should be addressed at the table. After all the players have agreed and the score cards are signed, they are final. I don't see how it can be retracted days later. Even then, it will result in a DQ, not INELIGIBLE.
    If it was signing the wrong scorecard, how did the officials or others find out? My kids signature looks like worms crawling on paper. Good luck trying to match his name to the card.
    Also, if he was DQed for the first day, he still continued to play the rest of the tournament?
    Something doesn't add up...

    Same thing happened to a friend of ours in 9’s last year. Kid and marker signed the card. Dad noticed that night that it was wrong and had his kid go to scorer the next day to tell them.

    You’re correct that in most tourneys this is an auto-DQ. But USKG has a rule that a non-behavior related rules infraction that would otherwise result in DQ will result in a 10 in the hole where the infraction occurred.

    Since, in the 11 year old & up, this is a JGS ranked event, my guess is they have to, effectively, disqualify him for purposes of turning in results. But their policy allows the player to continue competing.

    The 9-year old last year didn’t have his score listed as ineligible

    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.

    This...

    Not like he had that made its from the parade where previous world champs ride in part of the parade.

    "Eligibility
    To be eligible to be ranked in The Junior Golf Scoreboard rankings a player must meet the following criteria.
    ....
    Have competed in an age group that:
    is greater than 10yrs old, (Age Groups 10-11, 10-12, 10-13, etc. are acceptable)"

    But I see us kids regionals posted to JGS for 10 year olds.

    After 6 straight days of golf and caddying 135 holes, here's my take.

    • Do try the breakfast at Carolina. My kids are picky eaters, and I was so happy to see my son gulf down two omelets each sitting.
    • Bermuda greens. Tricky little beast.
    • Boys 11, seriously think about upgrading to adult clubs before you come. Otherwise you'll be bringing knives to a gunfight.
    • Do play the Cradle, but don't let your wife play with your kids clubs. Otherwise you'll be running around like a headless chicken trying to find that missing club.
    • Do go at least once, and when they are young. I've talked to parents who've been to all three big junior championships, and they all say Pinehurst is the better event in terms of setup and experience.

    Love this. I will add:

    • dont let your son take the yardage/greens notes book out of the bag at the hotel for who knows why....day 2 it is nowhere to be found. Funny enough, that day was his best score. Does pay to keep notes on greens there, several headscratchers.
