***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.

    People who buy these wedges will be doing themselves a HUGE disservice with no grind or bounce options. I would hope anyone on this board knows better, especially for wedges and how important they are to scoring.

    For the guy that plays a couple of times a year, not a big deal.

    But, for guys here, completely agree.

    exactly. If you know better you should do better. These wedges are fine for the average hack who struggles to break 100 but everyone on Golfwrx should know to skip these without blinking an eye.

    So it's elitist to be educated now? You seem to be very insecure about wanting to play these wedges when i said nothing bad about the brand simply commented on facts about the lack of options to fit players with some of the most important clubs in the bag. The chances that the standard bounce and grind on these wedges fitting players vs getting fit into a wedge that actually has relief where they need it is slim to none. Especially with a 58 or 60* wedge. So i'm right on so many levels it's scary and you clearly have never had a wedge fitting.


    And btw you mentioning your hcp is elitist as you are implying because you played good golf in the past that you somehow know what your talking about with regards to wedge fitting. You don't btw.

    This is a great idea...would love to see a Costco van on site. They could sell $1.25 hot dogs out of a window in the back. Comes with a drink too : )

    Lets be clear, Costco isnt marketing to the 200,000 golfers on GolfWRX. They could give AF less about a bunch of golfers who buy $650 PXG wedges or custom wedges from Artisan.

    They are marketing to the 24.8 million golfers who are NOT on WRX.

    If one of those 24.8 million golfers walks into Costco and sees a set of three wedges for....$149, thats an insta-sale. THATS who they are marketing to.

    We can agree to disagree and leave it at that. Kirkland wedges aren't worth the price or anymore of my time.

    Based on them not offering left handed putters, I doubt they will offer their wedges in left handed models. I hope I’m wrong so my lefty boys get some love👍

    That would be amazing! Pretty soon you see John Daly's tour bus at every stop. "Oh, is JD playing on tour again?" "No, he just follows the Costco van from tour stop to tour stop".

    Has anyone tried their glove? I think it was three for $25. The ball spins like crazy, a little too much for me. I compare it to the regular prov1, but the AVX is a better fit for me. I use them for practice balls since they’re only $1 a piece. Very fun around the practice green.

    The WRX crowd who cares about those things is not who Costco is hoping to sell these wedges to. They are aiming at a much larger and general golfing audience.

    I don't understand what Costco is doing. They put out the balls with nowhere near the amount of inventory they would sell. They put out the putters and the same thing. We all expect the same with the wedges.

    Aren't they trying to maximize profits? If they charged 1.5x I think they would still sell them because they are quality products. They sell k-sig vodka right next to grey goose. The k-sig cost half as much and constantly beats it in taste test.

    I realize some won't play "grocery club" golf stuff. But for me, I had friends when I played top flights too.

    Yes, really impressed with them to be honest, first one is still nice and soft and still fits well after 8/9 rounds and 3/4 range sessions/lessons.

    Had been using Mizuno Comp/Srixon all-weather for range gloves and Mizuno Elites for playing. For the cost (£15) of a pack puts them up against the cost of the cheaper synthetic gloves but gives you a nice leather glove.

    Bounce is dependent upon my grinder. I like lots of it so most of my wedges get the treatment. No different with these.

    The gloves are excellent, but the fit can be a little different from glove-to-glove in the same size. They're both soft and durable. I haven't purchased them in-store, but online they're 4 for $20. I usually get three or four 4-packs at the beginning of each season.

    Couldn't agree more. I'm an 11.4 who plays twice a week; breaks 80 one day and shoots 90 the next. I'm not a great wedge player and, really, the grind really only comes into play when you start manipulating the club face around the green. Bounce is much more important to me, and the grind only matters on the higher-lofted wedges in my game.

    99% of golfers, serious or not, don't get fitted for their wedges. Maybe J13, with his + handicap and elitist attitude does, but I'd wager even the overwhelming majority of WRX posters don't get wedge fittings and are probably playing the "wrong" shaft/bounce/grind in their wedges, too.

    Thanks, yea I couldn’t remember the exact price just knew it was cheap. I might have to stop there this weekend to try them out. Sick of spending $20 of FJs just to have them rip after a couple rounds.

    The biggest majority of even the guys on here would be a lot better off practicing with their wedges than worrying about bounce/grind. This a place to talk about golf equipment but a whole lot of the club stuff is just marketing. I am betting these wedges would work for 99 percent of folks.

    Simply ignore him. He has claimed multiple times in the past in different Costco threads to have "insider" information on the K-Sig balls and putter. He has provided none of it even when directly asked to prove it.
