***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.

New wedge set-up

I’ve decided to drop my 64* as I’ve literally used it fewer than ten times this year. Magical club but given there are only 14 spaces in my bag, I’m going down to PW-UW-54-60 instead of PW-UW-54-58-64.

So, I’m replacing my RTX4 with a CBX2 with graphite shaft, and my 58* MD4 with a new 60* MD5 Jaws 60/08 W Low Bounce with the standard steel.

I use the 54* for a lot of full and pitch shots from 90-30y and think the CBX2 will be a better transition from my graphite Ping irons. The MD5 will be used as a last resort, which is usually about 4 or 5 times per round.

    Seems like a logical decision... only need so many wedges in a bag... I've never carried past a 60 degree, though!
    I'm working on a bag rebuild, and trying to figure out what I want to do... I'm thinking 54 for general around the green stuff, and a 58 I can open and hit out the sand.

    My PW and 50 degree are set, but I've mostly abandoned both for around the green stuff.

    Neither of the 54 or 58 will be used much around the green, unless necessary. Tend to use 9 Iron or PW for much of that and get them rolling. Obviously that can’t always happen and the ball needs to be flown to the pin.
