I found this place out of necessity. I was trying to tell how much the Cleveland Comp head was the GOAT and the owners of BSG squashed the thread because they didn't sell it. That was where I lost it.

I was upset that we were let down. I cant remember complaining in public but their actions were self serving.    We have tried to manage this community through the lens of the member. 

Almost 25,000 posts ago in 2005, I did a web-search and here I am.  I took a break and now I'm back.  Now I spend most of my days trying to catch @Sean2's post count!  This place used to be tumbleweed

Being one of the OG's here, I have to hold my tongue sometimes and just realize that I'm old and may not know as much.  But the place picked up nicely after a lull.


agreed.

agreed.

But between us, working in the industry for a while has given me a LOT of insight.  Plus I have lots of stories now!

golf journey began solo, zero golf playing family or friends to hold my hand during this complicated learn so I learned from golf Magazines. I was really lost, but wanted to get better fast and all the golf magazines mentioned to get fit. I got fit at a GD top 100 and was blown away by the sensitivity of the set up, I saw the light. Fit into S300’s/716 TMBs, heads weren’t that impressive but difference the shafts(stiffness, Weight, kick point) effect the swing was crazy interesting. I google everything you can think of on S300s and 90% of my searches landed on wrx forums.
 

Since then, Golfwrx pretty much taught me what I needed to know before starting my next step in this journey. Why i should take lessons, who to take lessons from, how to practice, buying equipment, testing equipment, Selling equipment, walking vs riding, sale updates thats force you to buy stuff you don’t need, different courses, which course were open at the start of covid lockdown, which courses were the first to open, etc... it goes on and on my friends. Been golfing a little over 5 years and wrx definitely has been a cool manual for the lone wolf entering the field.

Had to come here to help build a neutral place that is unbiased for golfers. 

 

I was a big fan of GolfOpinions.com before that. JMHGO

I signed up for BSG and posted like 4 times. It just didn’t seem to be my jam. Not really sure why but felt unwelcome.

I got back into golf about a year ago and was looking for club component and clubfitting info on Google and the forums kept on popping up. Since I've been here I've been posting a lot in the instruction forum as like most of my peers I am trying figure out how to make my swing more repeatable.

I came from a terrible abomination called rec.sport.golf, a Usenet group. Joined it around the time I started playing golf. It turned into a total cesspit, so it was time to move on. 
I joined here after finding it by doing a web search. Most expensive move I ever made?

Add me to the list.  I may have even had fewer posts than Quigley and quickly realized, it wasn’t for me.

I googled "golf forum" and this was the top result. 

 

Also, can someone tell what the "WRX" is about? Im still trying to figure out what this forum and a Subaru rally car have in common? That is what everyone thinks of when they see WRX, right? 

  Not me, wrx also means works in some online lingo from the 90s. So I consider this to be Golfworks when I see it, lol.

Another to come from the GC / BSG worlds. GC was kinda bland, and I was never going to buy a lime green Ozik, so here I am. Member #521, though my post count is shamefully low.

 

 

It is way down the list but I am hopeful we can get the "join Date" and or the (Member #) back. ?

I was a member at another golf forum which shall remain nameless. My experience over there was nothing short of awful, mostly because of the admin. Decided it was time to find a better place, and GolfWRX came up in search.

 

Been here since 2008.

WRX is the tech side of a company. Golf WRX would suggest the same. Looking at the layer above the retail shot and ship. Ping golf has the WRX department. All custom and tour handmade. 

 

Example is Subaru, a subsidiary of Fuji Heavy Industries.
 
I also found the WRX reflects Impreza's secret Superman duality, many of the same bones under the skin, but sporting powers not found in the mortal Impreza. :pimp:
 
I looked that up on google so it must be accurate. I like it though.

Very close. #Karma

 

When you do what is right people can get behind that. We have always tried to make all decisions through the lens of a member. New comers and veterans here. What would the members want? Then make the decision. I was and am a member first and an administrator second. No BS with that. Cant go wrong if you consider the average member your customer here. Don't feel equipment or you will want to fake news the forum to prop it up. Try to tale to and not down to the member and take the high road unless you need to cut bait and then there is a time out for the offender. Have to do what is right.

 

We are here for the love of this great game and our fellowship is a great addition.
