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.

Doing impact drills - your thoughts?

I feel like I have a very good understanding of what I need to work on in my golf swing and also what happens in great swings however knowing what to do to improve or how to train a new motion is the most difficult part IMO. So as it relates to doing impact drills, what are your thoughts? I remember Johnny Miller saying he attributed his ballstriking to the thousands of times he rehearsed backswing to impact and then hit a shot.

Also, when I'm referring to "impact drills" I'm referencing making a fairly slow swing to the top of your swing and then coming down and stopping at impact of where you want to be, get that feeling, quickly get back setup and swing.

    Miller also said he used to hit those shots in the basement in the dark and that's why he can tell you the quality and direction of a shot by sound alone.

    I do a lot of slow and semi-slow and partial swings, but I never stop at impact.
