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.
Set my personal scoring record...THANKS MONTE
Anyone who knows me or has seen some posts knows I'm a huge proponent of Monte's teaching. I started working with him 5 or 6 years ago solely via his clinics in AZ. Started off with a pretty ugly swing...bent over way too far at the waist, sucked the club way inside, fired the hips, EE and spotty contact. My initial handicap was a 5 but with potential to shoot anything from 70 to 90 depending on the day. My new index before this last round is +1 and now my worst rounds are still in upper 70s. Fast forward to last week and posted my best round ever of 66 which is my personal best by 4 shots. That includes an idiotic bogey on 15 and 4 missed putts I left a half roll short in the jar. Huge thanks and anyone on the fence needs to take a lesson. He says it a lot but the key truly is to stick with it and not let a few bad rounds change your course. I had been playing awful the last month (4 or 5 rounds) but kept at it and finally had a breakthrough round.
