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?

    You hit the same drive the rest of your life, 280 down the middle (if length needed).

    Don't need the money. If I can hit 280 yards down the middle every time my putting average will drop anyway (that would gain me around 70 yards at the moment).

    You one-putt every green for the rest of your life (practice or tournament).

    One putt every green for the rest of my life.

    Basically every GIR is a birdie (or eagle)

    Most missed greens (like 80% guessing) are pars. Because you know if you missed the green you don't have to "get up and down for par" you just have to get ON THE GREEN ANYWHERE. Even pros don't get up and down that often.

    This takes a ton of pressure off your game, all the way back to the tee.

    Any par 4 under 350 yards with ANY KIND OF TROUBLE I am teeing off with an iron because I just have to keep it in play and get the second shot near the green. Anywhere on it is a birdie, anywhere near it is a par 80% of the time. Remember you just need to be on in 3.

    Basically you can bail out safely on any hole and get a par.

    Avoid penalty strokes, which should be much easier if you know you are an automatic one putt, and your score will plunge.

    Tour players average about 28 putts so in an average round they would drop about 10 strokes (18 putts every round).

    Basically if you could one putt every green all the rest of the wishes would come ($, getting on to great courses, etc...)
