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.

I have a good discussion point

<div class="IPBDescription">...most people don't know about</div>So exactly what is the difference between the Japanese Gauge Design putters vs. American made Gauge Design putters. Are both made by the same company. Why are the American ones not as good as the Japanese ones? How can I buy a Japanese one? <br />

Thanks, clears up many questions.

    go to tourspecgolf.com. They are the import specialists, especially gauge design. They used to be the sister site of golfwrx.com. They sell gauge japan items, and there are many differents posts on this topic. Go down the domestic section not more than 2 pages and there will be a post started by me on this topic. I think it is titled,"gauge usa." There is a letter posted by David Whitlamon the gauge usa site in that post and then also the conflicting stories by those who are affiliated with gauge japan.<br />

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph.
