***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.

Well, that'll learn 'im.

A friend and I had a tee booked at my club today. I'm expecting a typical friendly match with neither of us bothering about the score beyond personal interest. Out of the blue he suggests match play. At my own club. With a visitor.

Well I completed every hole as either a par or a bogey with one birdie. Don't think I actually broke my record of 80 but it was a good round. He conceded on the 14th.

Don't challenge me on my home turf, mate!

    It is amazing how switching up the focus can either make you play really good golf or ruin a day

    It certainly focused my mind. At one point on the front nine he was a hole ahead but I levelled up before the turn and then continued on my way while his game began to fall apart. I have a feeling that it might have been when I began to use my 3h. I don't get to use it much on the shorter front 9 but it's often called into action on the longer back.

    By GolfWRX standards 190 yards is probably weak for a 3h but when it's arrow straight and playing against another amateur it has a way of sapping their will :)

    Congrats on the win! I think having something on the line accentuates the focus.

    Never a bad idea to play some serious golf now and again, if only to see what you can really do.
