2020 Official Member Review: Bridgestone White Box Ball

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Played, poorly, today but made sure I used the prototype B X this time. Since I pretty much know the ball is good in terms of distance, I’m mostly focusing my testing on how well they hold greens. Greens were nice and receptive today, they must’ve gave them a good watering this morning.

 First hole, 54* from 80 yards out that went 82 according to arccos, I actually got it to move back an inch. Perfect for me because I don’t try to fly pins and bring the ball back, I like to hit a number and have the ball finish at that number.

Sorry I don’t have more examples to show, I was hitting the ball like trash today, but I’m glad this ball spins enough on approach shots for me, TBD on chips and pitches still.

My work schedule should slow down a bit after this week.. 🤞🏼

Planning on a next Saturday round with the XS’, been pitching with a couple out in the yard with various different clubs up to 120 yards. Right now I can get 7 of the 9 trajectory windows with them at 100 yards with a PW... but that’s probably just me, the Medium Draw and the low Fade just don’t click right now. I’ll get there.

I plan to play solely with these Bridgestone’s all year. If/when I run out I will be purchasing some to restock. I may buy a box of the X to test alongside when they come to retail.

Being a short game fanatic, most of my testing will be done within that 150 yard mark. I don’t really care what the ball feels like off the driver, as long as it doesn’t ballon or knuckle ball. Mid and long irons same thing, the object is to advance the ball far enough to get in range of a 8/9 iron or lower.

I don’t have any access to launch monitors or any other tech, so all my testing will be as seen in person.


And so I lied... this is unreal! Still playing this weekend but man... I need a golfcation!!

First thing I did was my standard putter sound test. 

The XS is noticeably softer/deeper/more muted than the X. 

Both are softer/more muted than the 2019 Srixon Z Star XV

The softness of the XS is still taking me some adjustment.  I putted much better yesterday though.  Had a few uphill putts and I got it to the hole much better.

I made it out for a quick walk of a few holes yesterday evening.  I had actually typed this all up yesterday, but the app crashed on my phone, I got mad, and didn’t feel like typing it all over.  Anyhow, more of the same really.  The XS is amazing off the driver, ditto on the irons and wedges.  I did have a sand shot yesterday though.  Sand is firm and compacted with all the rain we’ve had lately.  When it’s like this, I typically play the ball more in the middle of my stance, still opening up but not laying the face as open as I would if it were soft.  It doesn’t generate as much spin as much this way, but it makes for a consistent out.  The shot...was about 20 yards across the green.  Ball hit about 5’ short and rolled out about 3’ past the hole.  I dropped a ZStar and duplicated the shot.  Human inconsistency here, but the ZStar landed about 15’ short and rolled to about 5’.  

I’ve said the one thing that has captivated me more than anything with this ball is the distance off the tee.  Here’s a pic from two very well struck drives, gap was right at 14 paces.

I'm happy to report that I've apparently found what little golf game I do have again, so all hope is not lost! 

I got out for 9 this afternoon and put the Tour B X in play again. Here are some thoughts on today's outing. 

Off the tee: The main thing I'm noticing is much straighter ball flight, which is a good thing. My tee shots, when struck well, are holding their line at a lovely mid-high ball flight. I don't have any data to back this up, but the Tour B X does seem a touch longer than the Pro V1x for me. I'll get on a launch monitor eventually to see if this is actually the case! 

Iron shots: I lost quite a few strokes in the approach area today, but for the most part I noticed straighter ball flight and slightly longer shots with my irons as well. 

Wedge shots: This is where I was impressed with the Tour B X today. The first shot (pictured) was from 62 yards to 18', and as you can see from the ball mark, it hit, checked up and barely rolled out. The second shot was a pitch from 18 yards, that hopped and checked up to like 1'. I was pleasantly surprised with the action I was seeing around the green. 

IMG_0928.thumb.JPG.b9ff1835e270de084d4d5817d8b30420.JPG

Putting: I do like the feel of the Tour B X off the putter. I'd describe it as a medium firm feel if that's a thing. I know feel is always super subjective, but this ball isn't overly 'clicky' and is most definitely not mushy. 

My plan moving forward is to continue playing the Tour B X and once I can shake down one of these shops down I'm going to do a compare and contrast with the Tour B X, Pro V1 and Pro V1x.

Played 18 with only my white ball stash. Played whole round with same ball.

Simply put: the best round I have played in close to 3 decades!

Played men's forward tees 5310 yards.  TOTAL SCORE: 78!!  NO penalties, NO 6's, 11 pars, 2 fairway sand traps that did not affect scores at all

30 putts, 85% fairways off the tee.

I am NOT crazy enough to claim the ball was the cause to my best score since the late 1980s.  however...

Drives were longer than ever: 210-235 on all driver uses, and well centered in terms of line.  Some of that must be the result of comfort with my PING G410+ driver.  I have only had it for just over 2 months. Still every time better results. Perhaps a solid combination of both additions.

The greatest improvement was in the way the ball bit on wedges and chips.  I think I had saved 4-6 strokes on that alone.

Add a few lucky breaks, good putting and no penalties, I am ecstatic. 

It is fair to add that as this was the first time playing the RX on course; it had to have a solid contribution

I know how you feel I broke 80 for the first time of my life two weeks ago!  That was using Pro V1x just the day before receiving the Bridgestones.

So the pressure will be on the Tour B RXS Image result for pressure meme funny

After putting for an hour with both balls last night and for another 45 minutes tonight, I'm becoming addicted to the sound and feel of the XS. The two putters I used were my Evnroll ER2 and Scotty Select Newport, so both solid milled putters (though evnroll's grooves provide a softer feel than the Scotty). 

I don't have an insert putter to test with, but I could see where those with an insert in their putter could find the XS too soft. 

Don't get me wrong, the B X is by no means overly firm (especially when it compared to the zstar XV), but it provides a noticeably louder and higher put he'd sound off of both of my putters. I find the sound similar to the 2018 B X.

The first thing I noticed about the XS was that feel. My PING Anser has grooves and I love that combo as well. Same with the wedges, a very unique feel. Not mushy but not firm. Nice dead sound off them, not a click to be heard.

 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 the ready. I new demand for my game! 

I will be playing a familiar course tomorrow with many challenges for my skills: longer yardage, narrower fairways, lots of sand, water, and greens with quite a bit of roll. Last time I played this course, I felt happy to just hit under triple digits. 

I do not expect to do as well as I did earlier this week,  but will again allow me to see how this ball will help an old geezer such as me.

Spent an hour and a half at the putting a chipping green this afternoon with the XS and X.  Both balls performed to well.  Didn't really hit anything further than about 25 yard pitches, but had no problem controlling the flight or spin of either ball.  The XS continues to shine from a feel perspective, while the X is still no slouch in terms of feel for as firm a ball as it is.  Going to be 60 degrees here on Monday so I will be heading to the course for 18.  Really looking forward to hitting some full iron shots with each ball.

Played 18 today and continued to see a lot of what I've been seeing:

  • Ball seems a little longer
  • Doesn't feel as "sticky" around the greens as a V1X

What I also noticed today is it seems like a more "boring" or flat flight compared to V1X. I was 2' from an ace from 165 out, probably would've guaranteed a spot in my bag if that happened. Felt like a jerk because the guy we played with hit one to 4' right before that, and I put it inside of his, whoops!

Interesting on the stickiness around the greens. Full shots are good though?

It seems to hold greens fairly well on full shots, and while it’s an improved around the greens over its predecessor, the Pro V1 is still king IMO.

That's awesome... and quite a testament to advances in medical technology/procedures. 

To all the testers, is anyone evaluating ball balance/CG?  

I spent some time checking the balance of all of my Bridgestone Tour B RXS Prototype and several 2019 Titleist ProV1x  balls.

Played a round of golf. Found eight random ball on the very wet golf course ( cart path only for the fifth round in a row! ).

Tested the random found balls later that night. I also weighed all of the balls.

All of the Bridgestone Tour B RXS prototypes and all Titleist ProV1x 2019 and previous season editions were balanced. All weighed 40 grams.

The eight random found golf balls were all unbalanced !   These eight balls were major manufacture balls Bridgestone, Callaway, Taylor Made, Snell, Srixon, and Titleist. The thing they had in common was they were found on a very wet and muddy golf course. I'm done playing found or renewed golf balls period. Curiously they all weighed 40 grams.IMG_1973.thumb.JPG.a44f1c0b3d67ec3f3293519d9890d160.JPG

I did find one ball a few weeks ago that I have kept as a reminder of my club testing Lynx Blackcat ( Who knew they had a ball?).

It did test balanced. But it only weighed 37 grams. Don't know what to think about that.

As I said I played a round of golf the day after 3 inches of rain and temperature was a breezy high of 56 and thick cloud cover. Kind of miserable golf conditions so I really can only say this ball plays well off the driver and full iron shots. The jury is still out on short game performance and I'm still struggling a bit with putting distance control with the Tour B RXS.
