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.
Wrists/hands action at impact - am I thinking about this the right way?
Over the course of the last ~6 weeks I've been grinding away to eliminate several bad habits, everything from poor setup over the ball with the driver to a bit of reverse pivot creeping into my swing. As I've worked to fix those problems (it's been a positive journey yielding better results) a positive by-product is around how my wrists/hands work in the swing, specifically immediately before, thru and after impact. By getting my body into a better position I've found that my ball striking is more crisp and I'm no longer "flippy" with the hands. For some reason I've become way more aware of the flippy feel with my hands - I can now tell on the poor swings when the hands and wrists are getting too active thru impact.
So here's my observation which I'd love to get input on. When I purposefully come through impact with what I would describe as "calm" wrists/hands, I see excellent results (slight forward shaft lean, good AoA on the ball - up on the driver, down on the scoring irons). Is this something I should continue to engrain in the swing? It feels great and when I step back and think about my swing, it simplifies how I make impact and makes sense.
