***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.

Wow. Just occasionally it comes good :)

My record in competitions is pretty dismal. In social golf I can score around 90 all day. In comps, I'm lucky to keep it below 100. Hence the 22 handicap that has annoyed me for years. Then out of the blue today I played a comp like I play social golf - no inhibitions. Not caring what other people might think about my swing.

And the result was a gross 86 (+16) for 64. So I guess I'm not playing off 22 any more :)

Oh but it felt good. It included a birdie on a par 3 out of a bunker and one of the longest drives I've ever hit - 240 yards in total - right past a dangerous pond. I just had to turn to my partners and say "pond? what pond?" :)

    Just checked and I'd forgotten we had a live leader board now. Looks like I've won. That's nice :D

    You're in CONGU land, aren't ya ? Let us know how much you HI changes.

    If you're not in CONGU land though it still won't change much; maybe a stroke.

    Oh, and congrats !!!

    Yup. Congu land. I'm assuming -1.6 at the moment but I'm not sure what the SS is.

    Just got to wait for the committee to process the results. We're using new software this year (which, as a computer programmer does not impress me).
