***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.

::begin rant::

Yesterday I started out pretty good.

Easy two putt birdie on the first hole, and like most everyone here would have thought...we're off!

Yanked my 160 yard approach shot deep into the forest on the second hole and the real fun began.

Subsequent holes consisted of missed greens, skulled chips and 3 putts. (skulled chips!!! 3 of them!!!)

Of course I lost every bet, no skins, no greenies, no Nassau's.

On the plus side, being so far off course, I found about half a dozen shag balls...

Ninety freaking two. (although, if you told me I shot 122 I'd have believed it)

::rant over::

First world problem for sure, the next skins game is Sunday and I'm going lights out!

    Been there, man. I play to a 4 but once or twice a season I'll put up a stinker 90+ round.. Some days you have it and some days you don't.. and then some days you REALLY don't.. All you can do is laugh about it and move on. Many times I've shot that bad round then bounced back with one of my best.. That's golf for you!

    A couple weeks back I shot a 39 in my 9 hole league. I followed it up the next week with a 50 for a smooth 89, lol. That's golf for you.

    I won a comp yesterday with 86 but today was random. Played some holes well, played a couple of them horribly. I just couldn't hold my swing together. Eventually I stopped scoring and just enjoyed the day with my buddy.

    It's golf. Stuff happens.

    I am in a Friday 9 hole match play league and my match last Friday shot a nifty 40 against my 43. I managed to win all of 2 and half points. The week before this same player shot a 53 against a different opponent. What a game! 😩

    It's golf. There is no rhyme or reason to this game, lol.

    Know the feeling. Been playing much better later with several low 70's scores but this weekend I through up some wonderous high 80s scores. These lovely rounds including a few bladed bunker shots, a few topped drives and even blowing lag putts 15 feet by the hole. And I was really encouraged at turning the corner on repairing my swing too. Hopefully next round out will be better. Otherwise yikes.

    I'm a 6.1 index right now, and of my last 20 revision scores, my worst round is a 93, and my second worst round is an 84.

    Was playing a new course I have never played with people I had never played with, and had a sudden onset of the toe-shanks with driver. It was embarrassing, but it happens, unfortunately.

    Birdie on the first is always bad mojo for me. Let's just say last time I did that it was a triple digit day.

    I did that the first time I ever broke Par on a side.

    1-under on the front and 9-over on the back to shoot a cool 80.

    Well, I shot 79 yesterday. 8 cap ( 5 course)

    Got beat by 2 people in the gross column ( club only pays two places gross)

    Got beat by eight 15 or higher caps in the net payout.

    3 birdies/ no skins ( Birdied #1 handicap hole, but the club goes on net for skins)

    Hit one to 6ft but someone did better for the CP.

    I feel your pain......

    I had a stretch where I was struggling to break 90 at my home course this summer. Then Sunday night we played a course in town that I hadn't played in 3 years and used to struggle with. Smooth 42-37 for the first sub 80 round in over 2 years lol. Still have never shot lower than 84 at my home course, slope/rating is somehow nearly identical but my home course sure seems way more difficult.

    I have never heard of net skins. That's ridiculous.

    Our first born came along in '92 - it was an awesome year!

    @cardoustie - I have to ask, why 92? It's obviously 20+ strokes higher than what you shoot!
