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.
Best place to strike putts for best / straightest roll?
Sorry, WRXers - I feel stupid for asking this question but here goes...
I was watching a TXG video thisi morning (about the stability shaft) and they kept talking about trying to strike the ball slightly on the heel side (of an Anser like putter) for the best true roll - because it was presumably something with some toe hang and heel side of the alignment line would be on the center of gravity / axis. Is this correct?
I alternate between two putters - a YES! Pippi 12 (center shaft blade, some toe hang) and a Stroke Lab 7 (fangback mallet, face balanced) depending on how I feel on the putting green. I have always tried to hit the ball dead center on the putter face, but do I need to adjust that a little based on the putter in my hands?
I am a middling putter, and whether it's through bad alignment or an in-to-out stroke, I tend to miss more on the right than anything (unless I get handsy). Also tend to leave putts short more often than not. The only putting drill I do is with a mirror that has goalposts, in an effort to hit my starting line.
Any advice is well appreciated. thx
