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.
Driver body movement....the Gary Player 'walkoff'
OK, I've been noticing this for a while and especially my playing partners who call me out for my 'walk-off' to finish my driver swing (my wife calls it 'doing the Tango'). The problem is, I get my best shots when I do that, but it's unconscious. When I try to do it on purpose, I ruin the shot. If I was getting bad shots with that routine in there, I'd purposely be trying to stop doing it, but I get my best ones that way. I guess it's partly my body momentum carrying me through my swing to the point I have to take a step at the end of the follow through, and I mean an obvious step as part of the end of the follow through. Personally, I think my shoulder rotation moving forward at the end helps me keep the club face square to the ball a fraction longer and that's why I get my best drives (long and in fairway, but my upper body is now forward and forces me to take a step. Not sure if I should try to prevent that, but I kind of like 'don't fix what ain't broke' even though it is like a broken follow through....perhaps another version, "don't fix what works"? Good, bad? Should I try to ditch it?
