***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.

A small victory, but it made my day

Medal comp today. Overall an okay competition score for me - net 73 from gross 95. At least my handicap is unchanged and I didn't suffer a swing collapse part way round. Just had a couple of blow up holes. So for me that's a good competition day.

But one thing really brightened up my day. Nearly getting GIR on the uphill, 430 yard SI 1 and then getting a par with a chip and a putt. I've only once before got a par on that hole and that was a couple of years ago off the standard tees. To get it off the competition tees is awesome. Gonna be smiling about that all week.

Nett eagle :)

    Didn't birdie but got par again watched by my mate. Only the yellow tees this time but that's only ten yards shorter. This time my second shot ended up just shy of the green side bunker but I chipped over it and the ball stopped a yard from the hole.

    I'm really loving the improvements I've made to my chipping over the last couple of months. It's a whole new feeling. Instead of wondering if I'll make it onto the green I'm expecting an up and down. I wasn't the slightest bit bothered about that chip :)

    Congrats on the medalist honors. Your handicap will go way down it sounds with the way you’re chipping is going! Good luck!

    If it weren't for small victories, life wouldn't be worth living. Golf doubly so.

    Nice up and down, there.
