Testing Bridgestone RX Golf Balls
Between coronavirus lockdowns and unseasonably cold weather (snow is threatening in the second week of May), it has been difficult for me to get out to test some of the equipment I accumulated over the winter.
The balls have a 66 compression and are designed as a distance ball for players with a swing speed of less than 105 mph. That suits my game perfectly.
After a round, my initial impression is that it’s a very good ball, indeed. Even in the cold air, the ball seemed exceptionally long. I was also pleased with its play round the green.
On Washtenaw’s 411 yard par 4 fifth, I very nearly holed out for an Eagle. That’s a hole that I don’t think I have ever reached in two before.
I’ll have more on this shortly.
