***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.

TS2 in Cold Weather

Bought a TS2 this year and we are told how thin the face and crown are to get bettter COG. I’m sure it’s the same with most current drivers. I play year round in Memphis including in the 30’s and 40’. Should I hit in cold weather for fear the face cracking? My back up would be a 915 D2 which has been thru several winters.

    Its more hitting range balls that are left outside that is a problem. I dont hit my driver on the range when its get to 4-5 celcius.

    There are a huge number of golfers who live in colder climates than you and their drivers don't tend to combust when it gets chilly. I think you should be okay.

    Personally I only game an older driver in the cooler start and end of the season. I've had a couple crack on me in the past during that time of year so I just don't bother chancing ones I like more. Current is a 983K or 9015D steel shafted, which are just cool to bring out from time to time anyway... but I have a couple more heads, so not as worried.

    I’m from Canada and have never had an issue. I play down to freezing. I do not however go blast balls on the range as no ranges are open.

    I had one fail at a domed range and another at a course, both days were around 5*, so now 8* and lower I don't play some stuff. Mind you this was 10+ years ago with a Tour issue Adams BTY 4350 and Cally FT-9 Tour.

    I remember Ping put a tweet out a year or so again saying that they test there clubs in very cold and very hot temperatures. Can’t remember the exact temps but it was much colder than anyone would play in.

    Wooo go Canada.

    Coldest I've played in was a windchill of -12C (I think that's about 10F for the Yanks?), have never had a problem with any club nor has anyone I know around here. I might rotate balls when they start to feel a little too firm to a warm one from my pocket, but that's about it.
