***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.

Your golf fantasy....a genie gives you one wish, which these would you take?

    Single here, take the two fiddy, pay off mortgage, have more time to practice, try and achieve the 280 straight down the middle every time on my own (that one was tempting)

    I would take the 1-putt.

    Empty my bank account and start a money-game with Michael Jordan.

    Then putt from the tee-blocks.

    Boom.

    Well you could then be one of the truly obnoxious folks in the world who could play ANGC anytime, but chose not to because you (sniff) "don't care for the place".

    If you can one putt all the holes, most people here can probably compete in pro level. Be able to fulfill all other choices..

    Results are interesting! People like cash and appreciate the power of one putting, for sure.

    Surprised no one chose the US Open Qualifying. 1982, I tried -- had no legit reason to be there, punching way above my weight class -- you had to be scratch or a "professional" -- I wasn't scratch but was in the PGA Apprenticeship program, so that counted. 36 holes in one day, walking, of course, Atlanta Athletic Club, 7200 yards, host to lots of majors, of course. With persimmon and the old balata ball, that's like 7500 today.

    For the 28 holes which were par 4's and par 5's (of the 36) I addressed the ball, looking at the top of my 1959 MacGregor driver and the name "Tommy Armour" -- and about 20 feet away was his grandson, Tommy Armour III ... a young gun on the PGA Tour, who'd later set 72 hole record, 254, Valero Open, my playing partner. I did NOT qualify, by a long shot. But a GREAT experience. It was on the Monday after the Atlanta Classic, so it was the Local Qualifying location loaded with all the PGA players who weren't exempt, just finishing that week's tour stop. I was 21, before the round, warming up with all these guys who'd won in the 1970's (when I watched them on tv as a teenager) ...Homero Blancus, Rod Curl, Mason Rudolph, Forrest Fezler, etc. The low qualifier was a 22-year-old Georgia Tech grad named Larry Size. Heady stuff.

    FWIW, if I was granted a one putt on every green then I would certainly be getting the best GPS device that I could find with the best mapping to THE CENTER of the green. Unless you are close enough that a hole out is a reasonable possibility, that # is what you need (at least on the greens that most of us play).

    But I am still taking the monthly rounds at ANGC just to be known as the only guy on the planet with the power to get them to open the course in the summer.

    You can caddy for one famous golfer in any moment in history (and return).

    I'll loop for Tom Watson thank you very much. Heck I'd settle for caddying for him for a single tournament: 2009 Open Championship!

    It was between the 1-putt, Masters tix, playing Augusta, and cash.

    Looking at the value of everything, compared to $250k

    Masters tix - I’m young enough, and assuming the tournament doesn’t go anywhere, I’d easily make up the $250k option, even accounting for NPV of the 250

    Play Augusta - similar time above, but would make up the money even faster. I could easily get 6 people a month to grease me $500+ each to go play Augusta

    1-putt everything - as has been mentioned before, with this option there’s a chance at making the Tour and making way more than $250k. Even if that didn’t work, I would win way more than that in bets and smaller tournaments. Worst case, I’d be some sideshow trick shot artist with a massive YouTube channel and get paid to 1-putt all over the country. So this one easily has the most potential to eclipse $250k.

    One putt everything, I'll get Bryson big, top 5 player, masters invites, fame and money, who's that guy? Oh, he's the one who makes the putts, ALL of them! The Green GOAT, how does he do it? he's got a system, publish an instruction book, make even more money, start designing and selling putters, like, who wouldn't use my putter? $250k? Pfft, its like $250MM by the second year, I might even talk nike into getting into equipment manufacturing, I'll take a royalty on that. Green GOAT clothing line, etc, etc.

    One putt every green no question. Everything else would probably fall in line, including playing Augusta and the money if that were my reality.

    The “have to tell your spouse” part of it lost much of the appeal for me. Lol.

    So, I went with the “one putt”. Since it’s a golf genie, seems appropriate? For me, it would mean 8-10 birdies a round plus 100% scrambling.

    It’s a tough choice between the $250k and the 1 putt. $250k sounds wonderful right now. Al debt paid off, then easy street. But, 1 putt for life and as others mentioned, I could make far more than $250k.


    with the rest of my game as it is right now, and the lack of time I have to practice, I think I’d have to go for the $250k and pay off all debts and pay off the rest of the kids college tuition.

    For all those taking the one-putt option, do you have any concerns the game would become boring and suck all the joy out of it for you? One of the things I love about golf is that every round is different, every shot is different, etc. If I knew that all I had to do was get the ball anywhere on the green, I think I'd become bored quickly and lose interest.

    One putting every green would make a lot of people the #1 player in the world. Good point about removing the fun from the game, but I'd sacrifice that to make tens of millions of dollars a year playing on Tour. I hate putting anyway so it wouldn't be a big deal for me.....

    Driving the ball 280 straight is not commensurate with perpetual one putting. Make it straight and 330 and then you might have an interesting question.

    Definitely the $250k. Hitting all drives 280 or one-putting sounds good at first, but working on the craft and trying to improve driving and putting is part of the fun! I'd gladly invest some of the money towards improving my game.
