  2. Finally back doing the golf thing. Without going into a lot of detail, I lost strength in the legs for almost any activity, including standing and balance. After impressive work done by my primary care physician. cardiologist, and great physical therapists, all is in order for doing "golf activities". First re-pairs were adding a stent to a locked artery and doing a LOT of physical therapy. THEN it was decided to put a Watchman in me and all has been cleared in terms of activity. So far I can chip and putt and lightly swing my Orange Whip®. So I did a little of each. Results we

After impressive work done by my primary care physician. cardiologist, and great physical therapists, all is in order for doing "golf activities". So far I can chip and putT and lightly swing my Orange Whip®. So I did a little of each. Results were "OK" for now. All showed severe rust; but, I expected that. Great to be back!
  4. I am FINALLY returning to golf after a 6 month absence due to severe injury, so obviously this would help greatly! Mark Goodyear AZ I have not used a net is a few decades, now I have used a launch monitor at a local range; do not own one
  5. No, did not stop my interest in Golf or this forum. Rather my body decided not to want to play I was forced to stop golf 8 hours after my last 18. For reasons still neither fully explained or understood, my body decided to go from a slightly higher blood pressure to a very low one. Not related in any way to Covid16. As a result, balance was not possible and for over a 4 week period I cold not stand without getting very dizzy, even moving my lower body was quite the challenge. A combination of re-doing my medications from before to now have me well on the way. Therapy 3x a week
  6. It has been quit the while since my last post. There reason I did not post had nothing to do with this review, ball, forum, or anything such as that this product. Regarding this product, it exceeded both the promo stuff from Bridgestone, their evaluation of my swing, and my expectations The switch to Tour B from the e12 I was using is a good one. Drives: average 10 yards Irons 6-9 yards from 6 and 7 Hybrids aout 10 ALL showed improvement in accuracy, loft and result such as wedges. This will be the choice in my golf future! As to me: I was forced to
  7. Prior to getting VERY solid with the hybrids, I used the 6i a lot. Used it a quite often last round due to Ionger first rough on a moist course. So it drew my mind in practice. My hybrids are solid so is my 7i and wedges. We always seem to second guess our play at my level.
  8. Today I focused on my 6, 7 and 8 irons. These, along with my hybrids, are the clubs I use most in my rounds. I know, that is a major revelation. Lately, my inconsistent club is the 6. I get good loft, ball speed and distance is not bad; but divergence from the target has widened in both directions. Today I even had a few topped shots. So, tomorrow through Sunday I will be figuring out were I am off in my routine. I do have a routine that has been very predictable and productive. Not sure why only the 6i is not doing well. Maybe, I need to not use it for a few days before a re-examinati
  9. Final report is on the way. Here is a short summation. I am an older player with a slower swing and ball speed; so when we did our video, Bridgestone recommended I play their e12. I already play that as my gamer. So the best option for me to test was the RX. I cannot really express my surprise and even shock at how much this particular ball has helped my game: cleaner straighter drives, more consistency with my group of irons and my hybrids, and, finally, the spin needed on chips and pitches. No, all my mediocre skills were not miraculously improved. I may change
  10. On my return to golf, I had to almost most start over in terms of grip. It seems I started a it too weak, so my coach ad me go to a some hard grip and THEN move to a somewhat more neutral grip. It as worked fine these past three years. Too hard of a grip also tires my hands quite a lot as I have major arthritis in my right hand.
  11. I try to do the same thing: lower hands and lower start to backswing. Voice it in my head for every shot! One of these days it may turn into automatic. muscle memory!
  12. Question for us all: How well the ball you were sent to try out match you and/or your game, regardless of what you usually play or in comparison to other spheres? Did the Bridgestone ball fit for this evaluation do well by you? Mine, the RX not only was a good fit, I was very pleasantly surprised.
  13. Report post New round today was nowhere as good a the other day, and, given my usual problems with this course, it was still somewhat better than usual. Course 73.2/128 Score 92, 39 putts (left way too many way too long when I hit the green). Only 17 GIR, Not as many FIR as well. Two balls sent swimming and one shot into the trees past a green. So penalties plus the most lost balls for the year. In reality, most shots that were "off" were just enough off to make playing the round seem greatly unplanned. 7i usually

  15. As with many here on the Bridgestone White Box Review, the sound is different from what I have played and it has taken a bit of time to adjust. I do like it, especially while putting; sounds solid and sure. In my pitch and chip practice this week, I have fallen in love with my new found ability to hold the greens. Sorry my beloved Bridgestone e12, you now may be replaced! I have even had a ball or two spin nicely back. This has never been a strong skill of mine. I was never able to create enough spin to do that well. The bite has even forced me to keep my ball mark repair tool at t
