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 or PM's. 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.
I have been trying to fully understand how to release the club to the target. I have Monte's videos, and one that really speaks to me is the Plane and Release by feel video on YT, and when I try to let things happen naturally I just feel as if my release starts sooner than it should. I also have the feel, not necessarily what I am attempting to do, of a flip with my hands and wrists. But I also feel that is a result of me being relaxed and letting things happen naturally. My swing thought is to swing and release through the ball and it generally produces pretty consistent results. But with today's instruction what is being called the "modern release" where it seems more rotational and letting natural forces, not the hands and wrists, release the club. But when I attempt this I feel nothing but tension in my forearms and wrists in an attempt to hold off the release, and quite frankly mixed results. I have taken a couple of lessons from our club pro and he is a big proponent of taking the hands, wrists, and arms totally out of the swing and letting torso and hip rotation square the face naturally. But I am having such a hard time with because I don't understand how there can be a golf swing without your arms doing something, i.e. swinging.
I know this is probably a loaded questionbut what exactly is the endgame for the release? Is it the "older" theory where hands and wrists need to be "active" or is it this new style which is built what seems to be purely on rotation and taking the hands totally out of the equation? Or, as Monte loves to put it, is this one of those areas where he says in golf instruction it's some, meaning a little bit of both? Any info is greatly appreciated as I am starting to lose sleep researching and trying to understand this.
Thanks in advance guys
