***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***

Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***

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.

    well as a part owner. I would expect him to be all LAgolf soon. Wonder when he will have graphite/composite iron shafts as well.

    He’s had it in the bag since at least February and Bryson has one as well which is where rickie got the idea to try it from. Also several other threads on the shaft

    To clarify, this is his driver shaft. Looks like he had been playing a Ventus Black previously.

    Interested to see what profile it is. They have a profile Dufner uses, a profile Bryson uses And a 3rd prototype I’ve seen. They may have built him his own shaft that has a similar bend profile to his Ventus Black but with the stability and higher ball speeds LAGP is quickly becoming known for.

    so this is who OLY was hinting towards a "big name" player coming on board this year


    I played la ozik black tie in driver, 3w, and 2i all last year and loved them. Still have all 3 shafts...... really looking forward to trying the new lineup

    I hope he goes graphite in the irons like Bryson, too. We need "popular" players to start using new equipment so things pick up steam in the market place. Right now shafts like MMT are still $75 per shaft... Would love to see that price down to be competitive with steel. Once it gets into the $50-$60 range, I think fitters will start putting it in better player's hands and within 10 years, I think almost every golf shaft (including putters) will be graphite or have graphite in it.

    The LA Golf website is shockingly poor right now. No specs on any shafts, many 404 errors, difficult to navigate. And the online "fitting" tool suggested that regular flex Red, White and Black Ties would all be good driver shaft choices for me, with no additional input. For shafts at their price point I think they should be marketing to gear heads and highly technical fitters, and their current website does not cut the mustard for that crowd.

    I noticed that from the pictures also, I wonder why he went away from his new Rev 33's and back to the old Amp cells.

    Not sure when the switch happened, but both he and Dufner are rocking the F9, while Bryson is in the SZ.

    In all fairness, Bryson is one of the top 10, maybe top 5 best players on the planet right now, so being number 2 isn’t exactly a bad thing.

    There has to be a programming error in that tool. I just entered the below inputs and got the same regular flex recommendations.

    Club: Driver

    Height: Too High

    Spin: Just Right - Low

    Carry: 290+

    Put those in just to test it and it still came out with regular, which I don't think any sane person would recommend with the speed needed for a 290+ carry.

    LAGolf is going through some serious internal changes. The shafts on their site are really not even available.. Ever since Oly bounced to Ping I think they are in a bit of a scramble mode.

    For what it is worth, I think you will absolutely see Rickie in a LAGolf driver shaft at some point soon. Iron shafts is not out of the realm of possibility. He was testing iron shaft this past week right? Their company model is to make endorsed athletes part owners. As owners don't you think they are going to want to rep the product as much as possible?? As all potential sales benefits them.

    Their site is for all intents and purposes. Currently down. Nothing they currently offer is even on the site except the putter shaft.

    You would think. Especially with Bryson being the only topic in golf right now. They would want to capitalize off him. People are going to find out with stuff he is using and that could lead to people asking questions and searching. If your website if half rate like it is now. You are going to miss out.
