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.
Ughhhh - Game is gone & no idea what to do..... Oh yea & yips on chipping.
I will never be a good golfer & no not one to practice or go to the range. I like hitting the ball, playing 18 & lucky to be a member & get out quite a bit during the May-October golfing season.
No I will not drive it 250+ or be a wizard with the flat stick, but started to feel pretty competent by the end of 2019, shooting low/mid 80's, making few mistakes and generally working my way around the course.
This year once we started posting scores in June, my HC is going up and up and no idea what to do.
I have too developed serious yips on my chipping by the green (40 yards in), often hitting it sideways.
Fortunately I am usually in play off the tee, but it is an adventure from there on in.
Before I didn't need to concentrate and simply was pretty easy to walk up, choose my club and swing, make decent contact and the ball was in the air somewhere in the direction of the hole.
Yesterday I was 0-18 in GIR's. Have had that happen a few times this year. Generally should be 5-7.
I was excited seeing my HC almost in single digits and now lucky to be 14.....
Luckily am out 3-5X/wk so it isn't a lack of play.
Sure I'll arrive early and work on some chipping, but no idea what is going on.
Any ideas or help is much appreciated????😖
