***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.

Morning Drive...What Happened?

    I guess it's been awhile since I've watched. I have no idea who "Coach" is!

    I didn't see the segment but based on what you described, Coach is right. The PGA Tour needs to make money...

    LOL. Yes, the poor PGA Tour is so poor the players have to carpool from tournament to tournament and stay four to a room in Motel 6's. They barely have enough money to eat, so they're forced to shoplift from 7-11's on the way to the courses.

    The PGA Tour is owned by the players and is a non-profit organization. There's a lot of money in non-profits!

    For me, I love the idea of a sport (or anything) that rises above the modern obsession with money, advertising and crass commercialization of everything.

    Look the companies running football teams don't give a hoot about the city they're in. They only care about the money and getting numbskulls to sit in the cold in the overpriced seats of a stadium paid for by taxpayers so they can scalp them for food and drinks while they buy nonsense logo'd trinkets at exorbitant prices.

    I'd love to have the taxpayers buy me a building for my business.

    What the heck does any football team cult member get if a team wins? Nothing, zip, nada, zero. People are so easily conned.

    We all have the ability to say we are not paying those prices. Until that happens and stadiums are empty and people stop buying $12 hotdogs and cold nachos the price is the price. Supply and demand. That is why Sunday tickets to the masters can resell for $10k. Somebody is willing to pay that to go. Once people stop paying those prices they will come down. Till then, you cannot blame Disney for charging what they do while their park is full.

    We are glutenous consumer society that will do anything to make our instagram get 10 more likes. It is not the fault of whatever corp. that we as a whole are willing to buy at whatever price the new shiny thing they are selling.

    Coach was tripping balls this morning when he got on Berger. It’s like watching WWE. And I’m not inbred. Which is similar to sitting at a bar all night and not being drunk.

    It still amazes me that Coach is an actual thing when it comes to golf coverage. He brings absolutely nothing to the table of any substance. I can think of a few guys on here that would be much better suited to the role than Coach.

    Problem is this "growing the game " idea- it's going to rub some of us purists and true fans of the game the wrong way bringing in people who act like the 6am Sports Center crew about golf- At least the sports center people generally have some knowledge on the subject at hand-
    Anna Whitely was a great addition- the coach- not so much-
    I like Damon Hack and Robert Damron and Lauren Thompson quite alot-
    I'm always happy to see Paige McKenzie too-
    Overall I think they do a great job and I love having the show available to watch

    The argument he had earlier today on the schedule with the British guy on remote was cringe worthy. And coach is an idiot. The other guy had a great point. Why alienate the core golf fan in favor of the football fan ? Some watch both successfully. Some don’t care to. Let those that don’t go. Caoch said “ that’s impossible. Sponsors bring money and they want more viewers “. Sure says the other guy. But which sponsors will leave if this schedule flops ... coach basically says “ it can’t flop. It’s the only way “. Idiot. He’s the football fan we’re all griping about. EF-off and leave golf alone.

    Context to be fair. When I say idiot here. I’m referring to golf IQ. He maybe a perfectly swell guy otherwise. I just am not sure why he’s so anti golf fan and pro football.

    I didn't see the segment but based on what you described, Coach is right. The PGA Tour needs to make money, therefore it needs sponsors, therefore it needs the right ratings numbers. It makes sense to move its bigger events away from football which will wreck its ratings.

    The question is will they lose more ratings jamming the majors together resulting in the top players skipping more events in the major season and hurting TV ratings. The Tour might lose more than it gains.

    What Tour events are top players skipping more than in prior years? I don't see it.

    If you go by OWGR SoF, at a quick glance, the Honda Classic, Valspar and The Memorial took a hit this year compared to last. No evidence the new schedule is directly responsible for these fields but its definitely a possibility that tournaments outside the big events (majors and The Players) in this new condensed schedule could suffer. It would seem very unlikely that there would be no negative effect on any tournament in that period of the schedule.

    The Memorial is exactly where it has always been. Two weeks before the US Open. Now the May tournament is the PGA instead of the Players, but the new schedule would not have any different effect on playing it. One or two tournaments may be affected negatively but other tournaments may be affected positively. The Florida swing tournaments have always varied year to year.

    It now has a major two weeks before that makes a difference in some way to players schedules. It all a bit of unknown at the moment but it's different including The Memorial.

    While every thing you said is absolutely true.....It's all in the name of entertainment. I never question what people will do for their own pleasure....those same people in those over priced stadium seats think that me and you are totally insane for chasing a little white ball while using over priced equipment and paying insane greens fee while taking lessons and not getting any better....entertainment is all about the money.....LOL! They think that we are being conned!

    The false hood that is “ ratings”? Lol. Advent of the dvr killed that idea. They cannot possibly know how many people watch live in real numbers. Either event.

    Selling golf to the unwashed football fan is not good for golf. When the goose is sold and eaten. She no longer lays eggs.

    The last guy to keep his card (125th on money list) is Pat Perez and he made $1.1 million in earnings not counting endorsements... and the “Tour” needs to make more money?

    OK, so the Morning Drive folks were talking about the long drive guy hitting a ball 342 yards from Canada to the US across the Niagara River. They were amazed, since it was so foggy and humid. The air was so “heavy.”

    Dry air is more dense (ball flies less) and humid air is less dense (ball flies more).

    The only thing more dense than dry air are “expert” golf announcers. Don’t people go to junior high school anymore? :smiley:

    Being qualified to talk about golf is no longer a criteria for being one of hosts, or whatever they are call, on Morning Drive. If it were still a criteria, Robert Damron would be hosting by himself right now.

    I guess it's been awhile since I've watched. I have no idea who "Coach" is!

    He was the guy before Woody.

    It's been so long since Cheers has been on, it took a few minutes for me to get it.

    I didn't see the segment but based on what you described, Coach is right. The PGA Tour needs to make money...

    LOL. Yes, the poor PGA Tour is so poor the players have to carpool from tournament to tournament and stay four to a room in Motel 6's. They barely have enough money to eat, so they're forced to shoplift from 7-11's on the way to the courses.

    The PGA Tour is owned by the players and is a non-profit organization. There's a lot of money in non-profits!

    For me, I love the idea of a sport (or anything) that rises above the modern obsession with money, advertising and crass commercialization of everything.

    Look the companies running football teams don't give a hoot about the city they're in. They only care about the money and getting numbskulls to sit in the cold in the overpriced seats of a stadium paid for by taxpayers so they can scalp them for food and drinks while they buy nonsense logo'd trinkets at exorbitant prices.

    I'd love to have the taxpayers buy me a building for my business.

    What the heck does any football team cult member get if a team wins? Nothing, zip, nada, zero. People are so easily conned.

    the tour is a business and wants to maximize earnings for its players ... you may not like that capitalistic notion, but it's the same as any other business ... you love the idea of a sport /business that rises above money? ... let us know which organizations those are ... would really like to know ...

    Then had his own show for a bit. I liked Coach.

    Oh, I’m a capitalist through and through, but the PGA Tour is a tax-exempt non-profit and not a for-profit business.
