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.

Question for those with junior golfers.

My son who is about to turn 13 and growing like weed, has the golf bug pretty good right now. He currently has a height appropriate set of USA kids clubs, but he seems to be losing distance IMO just from his equipment. Or at least not realizing his full distance from a good strike.

So my question for you that have a serious junior golfer when did you upgrade them to an adult club head, which was it?

Did you go with graphite or steel? He’s not quite swinging hard enough, or perhaps even strong enough for steel yet, but he carries his driver about 170 on a great hit.

Im just curious what heads y’all might be using, I can work the shafts out later. Thanks in advance.

    I don't have a JR golfer. I feel that standard men's heads are fine, with shafts the length and flex that fit him.

    As he gets bigger, stronger and able to swing a standard length club, the distance will come.

    If the US Kids driver head is small, a men's driver head will be more forgiving, which will add some yards.
