2018 Official Forum Member Review Bridgestone Tour B JGR Driver, Fairway Woods and Hybrids

Recommended Posts

So last night even though I got spanked by the No1 seed. I came away happy with the way I drove the ball.

 

It was validated today when I saw him and he said to me. "I was really impressed with the way you got off the tee last night. Have to admit I didn't expect that from a 17 HC"

 

Quite a compliment from a guy who has legit Tour level length.

 

I watched him at a TM Demo day earlier this year. He was hitting 119 on the LM with the driver. Last night he almost drove the green of an uphill 340 yard par 4. Was 50 yards out on a 360 yard one and hsd 155 into a 495 yard par 5.

 

For shits and giggles he hit a TM Utility iron off the lasf tee out to 265.

I haven't had a lot of opportunities yet where I really had to “trust it”. With an admittedly small sample size, I do definitely trust the hybrids. Driver is solid, I'm not sure yet that I'm in love with the ProForce V2 shaft. We'll see if it makes it thru the winter.

I'm on my way Saturday to SW FL for six days of golf, testing & debauchery. I'll know more & have a BUNCH more to say by the end of the month.

That's a great feeling isn't it.. Not the spanking part unless your into that, the getting complimented part.. LOL  Glad you crushed the driver..

In regards to the 3 wood, my JPX-EZ looks like it may be retired to the basement because of the JGR. I didn't think anything would kick that out of the bag but it very well may.

 

The 3 hybrid and I don't get along at the moment, but a date with some lead tape MAY fix that. The 4 hybrid is a bit of a beast for me right now, but we'll see how it hold up.

As far as Drivers, Woods, and Hybrids how do these compare to other clubs you have played or tested? Cobra has the baffler technology which instills confidence to get after it in almost any lie. do these clubs give you the Confidence to "go for it"?? or do you feel solid and safe with them?? 

 

Confidence or stupidity - sometimes it's a fine line, but I am already very comfortable with the hybrids, especially the 4. 3W not as much, but I think we're getting there. Driver is a work in progress, which has always been the case for me, but I am as comfortable with the JGR as anything else I've hit in the past.

Thanks for the reviews!!! I stopped reading, and then just looked at pics, as soon as Rob mentioned “draw biased”... With a hook as my nemesis, I'll move along.

They do look GREAT, though!!!!

Nice job! Glad to hear changing the weight seems to be helping. We'll see for sure tomorrow.

Did I hear long drive contest tomorrow?

Saying things like that is a good way to get my to swing out of my shoes and spray the ball all over the planet.

 

Who am I kidding, I do that anyway

Man I totally missed that this was going on. With the mobile app I just see a current picture and do not post.

 

No wonder Rob has been in Ohio! :)

 

Great work guys - it's funny that Sluggo doesn't like the yellow, I think it looks cool.

OK I'd take an 11.5* driver in a heartbeat. Still unsure about the hybrids, but the reviews on this driver are outstanding.

Driver and 3 wood are pretty damn good when I can swing them right!
