***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.

1st Eagle ladies and gents.

    One question: why not hit Driver off the tee?

    That's a great feeling. A nice well earned and executed eagle. I have 5 or 6 myself but, only one is from 1 putting. The others were off the approach shots or chips. Good feeling, indeed. Keep em comin

    One question: why not hit Driver off the tee?

    Thank you so much!

    Yes, that actually was my driver. I have a few drivers and one has the arccos grip(sensor built in) which is saved as the “driver” on the app and my other drivers I use the screw on sensors saved as “2W”..

    I only attempted once for a few seconds so I can be wrong, but the arccos app only allows to save 1 sensor per club slot...

    3 footer/ flat as can be- I was able to see/sense the hole with my peripheral vision from address and during the whole putt... it was awesome.

    Congratulations, those are some great shots to lead up to an eagle. Up until a few weeks ago, I’ve only had 2 eagles in over 10 years of playing. One was a chip in just off the green and the other was a lucky, long putt on a short par 5. I’ve been playing a bit more this year and I had a similar eagle to yours with a finish with a 6 footer, and I had my first “true” holeout from the fairway for an eagle. It was from 84 yards. Since I’ve never had an ace, it’s the most exhilaration I’ve ever felt on the course. Good job on your eagle, more are sure to follow.

    On -, @Kevlar10 Thank you so much! Yes, those were two of the best shots I’ve hit thus far.. yes, it’s an amazing experience.

    Definitely not easy to come by.. my friends who have been golfing a lot longer then me said they never seen a eagle before in person, I agreed.

    Yes, I just finished a 8 lesson package and really learned the swing that works for me.

    I’m still in the process of transferring the new swing to the course and it’s around my 4th time out since I finished the lessons.

    The first time out I only hit 1 295 ish drives and thought it was a fluke.. then, the number of 295 drives started increasing to 2.

    this last time I hit 3 drives that far and was able to connect a great 4i shot that landed on the green to follow.

    I’m hoping to learn to pull this off on every drive by end of year... guess I’ll be that guy on the range that’s looks like he’s brainlessly beating driver lol.

    This is a great game that keeps me discovering new skills and weaknesses to work on which is a part of the journey I enjoy.

    Congratulations!!! I have a few hole outs but have yet to make an eagle putt. That feeling had to be amazing!

    I was 42 when I made my first eagle. Now have 29 of them. Course familiarity and knowledge have been the keys.

    Hope to reach 30, but at 66 it's a fairly faint hope.
