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.

Best glove for summer....heavy sweating with your hands

    2-3 pairs of Perma Soft on rotation during a round and on the range. I have sweaty a$ hands and live in Florida. Only way to stay dry and use a quality glove with good feel.

    Sweat bands and rain gloves, rotate the glove every 6 holes.

    Never been a big fan of rain gloves due to the feel, so I usually just rotate a couple of Vice/Titleist gloves.

    I am one of the owners of CaddyDaddy, the makers of the Claw glove. We're based in Arizona and designed our gloves to specifically play well in the summer heat. We also have a large customer base in Florida and the Southeast that love our gloves for humid conditions. Sorry to hear the gloves did not work for you, we don't see unsatisfied customers very often. I looked into it personally and our records show we did refund your purchase in full for the gloves. If there was something incorrect with that transaction please send me a Private Message here and we will get it handled ASAP. If anyone has any questions on our gloves or any other product, please feel free to ask!

    For anyone that would like to give our gloves a go, we're giving away 20 Claw gloves to GolfWRX members here.

    Although our gloves have a very different feel than nearly every glove out there, I'd recommend anyone interested in learning more to visit our media and customer reviews at our website.

    Thanks, Rod

    Rosin bag works. Sexwax works really well. The wetter it gets, the more sticky it becomes. Used board wax on tennis rackets for years.

    I'm another one that rotates during the round. Usually will swap after the front 9 if it's a humid day.
