***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***

Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***

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, I didn't realize I had been a member here so long! Nothing to do with the history but I remember all the "problems" associated with the other sites. I believe I just followed the bouncing ball to this site after being members elsewhere. I'm sure if we started a poll asking what web board you came from to here, a lot of us have the same history. <br />
    <br />
    Let's keep a good thing going here!

    For sure! It isnt an option for us. Ryan, myself, the Mods and staff all feel the responsibility to keep this as it was and is. We want this to be a place you are proud to be affiliated with. We cant please everyone all the time, but if you know our motives it helps you understand what motivates us. <br />
    <br />
    I say this often to members but it is true.... we work for the members. We are here for the members and our decisions are always made to please the membership as a whole for the long run. <br />
    <br />
    When we think about how or what we should do in certain situations... all we do is think about it from a members perspective and the answer is black and white in most cases.

    I have apparently been here since Jan 2006 but don't remember how I got here the first time. I don't post a lot but am on here almost everyday as it is my go to golf site. I remember the Golf Channel Forums and what a mess they were and visited BSG a few times.<br />
    <br />
    My early experience on hobby sites was in 1999 through about 2004 on the Bass Fishing Home Page when all I did was fish and had all but given up the game I grew up with (golf). That site looks today like it did in 1999/2000. <br />
    <br />
    I glad to have this site to go to and thank Richard and Ryan for their commitmment to keep this place to go for golf info and for continuing to reinvest in the site. <br />
    <br />
    This would be good day to re up my Club WRX membership. I think I'll do that now.

    <br />
    I can remember when you and a bunch of otehr guys were really frustrated. I can't remember the specifics but I do remember there was mutiny on the bounty. The model of profiteering off of the members was broken. <br />
    <br />
    I will never forget throwing in a hail mary and calling BH once. He took my call and I told him to stop selling and make his $ with the "insiders" subscription. I told him the model was dysfunctional and wont last. His reply was "cant happen".<br />
    <br />
    GolfWRX was started then. It was a seed in my head. I reached out to Speeder617 (Art) and Joe Kwok. I wanted to get 5 guys to do this with me. At teh End I was the only one that ponied up the $ to get it going. Then Ryan ponied up to. We were in some serious debt. It took us years to dig out of that but worth it. Ryan and I both have good careers and could afford some cash but we wernt a bank.<br />
    <br />
    I was (and still am) obsessed. Simply obsessed to make this work. Honestly... all of it was to protect us as a whole from the evil empire. LOL. Laugh but it is true. It is crazy to look back.<br />
    <br />
    Thank god my wife was cool about it. By son was 6 and my daughter was 4 when we started. I was always sneaking over to the computer. There was most nights when my wife would be watching TV and I would be off the the right on this old crappy circular wood table that I worked on. Crappy internet and a worst chair. She always wondered why I was doing it and thought I was off.<br />
    <br />
    I still work as hard as I did. Now 46 years old and my boy is 13 and my girl is 11. They are with in 15 feet of me as I type. <br />
    <br />
    Driven then to create a playground for us and driven today to improve the same playground. Always thinking of threats to it and how to make it better so you dont ever ever ever want to leave.<br />

    Both of you are old school.<br />
    <br />
    BTW... Ryan and I arnt the only one that spent hours a day. Frank, Jim, John, Kiran, Joe and then Reid (Pitbull808) yikes. Did you know for a few years Ried would wake up and somehow had a system to find out who join the past day. He would then send out a Private Message to each of them every day to welcome them. Every day. Talk about tireless commitment.<br />
    <br />
    Unbelievable.

    Ohh... Ryan and I still today as the site is above water spend 100% of anything the place makes back into the site. We have had an opening for 1 and now maybe 2 programmers. Ryan and I dont even draw a salary over our expenses. Come to think about it.... someone should knock some sense in me for that.<br />
    <br />
    Again we do fine with out it. If and when we would be dependent of $ from WRX is when we start to think differently. We want to build and create! Not harvest.<br />

    Easyyy- thank you for the reply and sharing the incredible story. I am sure I speak for many of us when I say much respect to you, your family, GX, his family, Kwok and all the others that sacrificed and worked hard to give us what we have today. <br />
    <br />
    I remember joing in 07 when a link in Golf Digest brought me here. Before that I would spent countless hours looking at The Hot List, reading reviews on TGW (yes The Golf Warehouse) basically I was starving and desperate for equipment information. I remember lurking for a few days and then stumbling onto JHR's WITB (any young bucks that don't know who JHR is, you need to look it up). I believe at the time you needed a membership to view pictures and the rest is history. <br />
    <br />
    You guys achieved your mission to create an inviroment where dimple heads like us can share unbiased opinions, meet great people and just hang. Mission accomplished! <br />
    <br />
    PS: can I call you Y3? way easier to type on a IPad. <br />

    Hold on now. All the big dogs are rolling in here.<br />
    <br />
    Yea... I can remember doing the same. I also remember my loyalty switching from Golf Opinions to BSG. I held on strong till I couldnt take it any longer. Then I was all BSG till things got stupid. It seems crazy to some but after you spend hours, days, weeks... hundreds of threads and more posts you (I) was invested. I felt as if I was part of it. To leave meant leaving all that work and text. My profile and everything.<br />
    <br />
    That is exactly why we feel the burden to maintain excellence here. To protect the interests and all the history invested by all of our members. 3 days old or 8 years old. Time is time and hopefully that time will be preserved forever online.<br />
    <br />
    BTW... did you know GolfWRX bought Golf Opinions a few years ago. She is live. We did it to preserve some history.<br />

    This place quickly became a huge part of my golfing life. A few years ago, I made a mistake, and it was rightly taken away for awhile. That was no fun, and I won't let it happen again, even if I need to be nice to Stage... :-)<br />
    <br />
    Just kidding, Stage and I have had our differences (Scotty Cameron). But I respect his views on everything else. :-) Cheers!!!

    If you dont have a difference with Stage from time to time, you are either his lemming or he went passive aggressive. He and I have each other on our favorites on the cell phone now since we butt heads from time to time. <br />
    <br />
    Even though Stage steps on the line of acceptability in posting I feel it is my (or ours as a community) obligation to reach out and try to keep the peace enough to preserve our relationship. Four tours in Vietnam together creates an odd internet friendship. Just because it is odd doesnt make is anything but REAL. We all have bonds here. Not the same as a face to face but in ways even stronger. Our bond is our passion and our vested time here. I respect that and always want to protect it.<br />
    <br />
    Guys that contribute and new and old are important, but the veterans that have become disenchanted for reasons need to be heard to. I want the Mods and Admins to never close their minds. Stay openminded, honest and will to listen. They say when you have you finger pointed at someone you have three pointed back at you.

    My avatar has remained the same from BSG to today. Didn't have one at GO.<br />

    I remember that Cleveland driver. It was good back then, but still no match for the R510TP "Titanium on the toe" heads. (Tour issue, of course.laugh-1.gif) Backed up by the Royal Collection Super CV B.B.D. Type-H 3-wood, Lehman Box Toe irons, and Cleveland 588 Black "TG" wedges. Sigh.<br />
    <br />
    Problem was, reviews on some of those were deleted. And prices on some were $2,500.00! And if you didn't like it, you were banned until the year 2036. Seriously.<br />
    <br />
    So R & R changed one word: "...for profit" became "...for the golfer", and GolfWRX was born.

    They would put a Lime Ozik in anything over there, for at least a grand. I could not then nor can I now fathom all that scrilla on one club. But that is what is great about this place, everything gets reviewed, everything gets rated, and even the cheaper options get mentioned. I couldn't hang out here otherwise, but Y3, Gx, and all the crew have been nothing short of excellent here. I remember getting that PM from Pitbull and then checking out his WITB full of clubs I had never heard of. Good times. Thanks.

    that forum sounds alot like that one forum where the owner would ban you if you disagreed with him on SnT. The members started to treat him like a god or something and the members started to try to learn SnT so they wouldnt get banned or negative rep.

    As one of the old timers who are still around, I'm glad this site is here. It's where I go at home, work, on my phone, iPad, everywhere. I've had experiences that I'll never forget and friends I'll have for a lifetime.It's my home. It's given me more than I ever gave it. <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /><br />

    And for the record, the Cleveland Launcher Comp was one of the best drivers I've ever used. <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' /><br />
