Bridgestone Tour B RXS Catastrophic Failure


Recommended Posts

 Anyone else have a Bridgestone or other premium ball fail in this manner? Cracked on driver impact.

In 38 years playing and caddying I have never seen this. I've even seen balls survive run-ins with the fairway gang reel mower blades with less damage.

Ball was performing with no issues up to that point.

Back to Titleists for me based on this.
