Has anyone tested the Bridgestone Tour B RX or RXS balls? I haven't found a topic on them.
I recently found a Tour B RX ball and started chipping and putting with it. It was in perfect condition when I found it and after practicing with it, it was in much better condition than the Pro V1's that I also use for practice. I'm amazed with it's durability but I found the B RX to be a little hot off the face compared to the Pro V1 (softer vs firmer feel?). I played a round with it and compared it to my gamer (Srixon Q-star) and didn't see much difference but I also played like crap that day, so it's difficult to say.
What experience have you guys with it? Is it worth the buy?
A special Limited Edition release by Bridgestone:
As the golf world gears up for the PGA Championship and Tiger tries to make it two-in-a-row at the Majors, Bridgestone is launching a LE special "Tiger Chasing Majors" commemorative package for its TOUR B XS balls this weekend. We expect it to be widely available beginning on Monday, but some Southeast locations will have it on shelves as early as this weekend. Same price as typical TOUR B XS ($44.99 per dozen) - just another opportunity for Tiger fans to grab a cool commemorative pack.

(10) TESTERS WANTED
5 Each e12 Soft and e12 Speed
It's Forum Testing Season!!
We kicked it off last week with the Galway Rain Gear and we are moving right along with giving 10 testers the oppportunity to put the new Bridgestone e12 balls to the test.
As you may have read or heard previously the e12 is a new ball to Bridgestone, it takes the place at the family table previously held by the e6, meaning priced at $29.99 retail. However, while it has the same price as the previous version of e6 there is a lot more that has gone into this ball.
“With the benefit of 12 years of ball-fitting data, we have amassed an incredible body of data that has allowed our R&D engineers to pinpoint specifically what causes players to lose distance and accuracy in golf ball construction,” said Elliot Mellow, Golf Ball Marketing Manager, Bridgestone Golf. “Contrary to the traditional school of thought in golf ball design, where power comes solely from the core, our new Active Acceleration Mantle actually allows us to derive additional power from the mantle layer to boost distance. We’ve created the ‘holy grail’ of distance performance golf balls - a 3-piece surlyn construction that minimizes sidespin to provide ultimate forgiveness, while delivering velocity needed to ensure maximum distance.”
So that sounds exciting, who doesn't want to discover the Holy Grail. So never one to keep such wonderful things under wraps. We are going to provide 10 of our valued forum members a chance to try these out for themselves and report back their findings.
These balls will be hitting retail shelves sometime in early to mid March so the chosen testers will be among the very first consumers to put them through the paces. Your job as testers will be to test these from off the tee all the way though holing out that putt for birdie.....hey the season is young, we're full of optimism here!

The New Year has arrived and it's time to turn our attention to the PGA Tour! Get ready for the:
2019 MYGOLFSPY FANTASY GOLF LEAGUE
The MGS community lends itself to large fantasy leagues which boost the drama to nail-biting hair-pulling levels (just ask @blackngold_blood). This will be a great opportunity to connect with fellow posters and chat about the PGA Tour all summer long. @Berg Ryman and I will be your humble commissioners. The format will change from last year and we're working with Fantrax to see if they can add a new option for the season/playoffs. If that doesn't pan out, we have a plan B that we'll roll out. Both options will be geared to maximize drama during the season and in the playoffs.
In the meantime, it's time to start gathering players. So, who's in??
Platform: Fantrax Buy-In: Free Draft: January 30, 2019 9:00PM EST (can be changed by popular demand) Draft Format: TBD pending league size Format: Head 2 Head - Details TBD Scoring: See Below League Size: As big as we can get while remaining even 1st Tournament: AT&T Pebble Beach - February 7, 2019 Playoffs: During FedEx Playoffs Prize: 😉
For returning players, the 2018 league has been renewed and all of your profiles carried over. There's no action required from you on the Fantrax side, but please confirm your interest in this thread. Until your name below says confirmed, you're not in the league:

For simplicity, the point values were reduced by the highest common divisible (5). Anything that used to be worth 5 points, is now worth 1; anything that was 10, is now 2 and so on. The scaling and weight is exactly the same as before. The only new category is Par for 1/2 point to keep course setup from blasting our players.

In addition to expressing interest, please comment on any changes you'd like made to the scoring or format. No promises that they'll be incorporated, but now is your chance to make recommendations. Stay tuned for more details. Good Luck!
