Bridgestone Golf Balls – Tiger’s Brand

This is our fourth and final edition of our golf ball reviews. However, we are certainly not done on the topic. Next week we will provide a comprehensive review of all four brands and the pros and cons of each, individual golf ball. We will break it down by swing speed, playability, workability, feel on and around the greens and more. What we envision is to give you a real, honest at look at which ball(s) are best for YOUR game.

Bridgestone golf balls as most of you know, are the golf balls played by The Big Cat (aka Tiger). Although I highly doubt you can buy the exact ball he plays in stores. Bridgestone does offer a robust selection so let’s get to it!

We’ll continue to provide this chart below as a guide to each category of golf ball we review.

Tour B X

Type – Tour X

Constructed For – Designed for club head speed over 100 mph. Low spin launch off the tee and excellent for shotmaking.

Highlights – Gradational Compressin Core for more ball speed and less ball spin. Patented Dual Dimple Design for more control and workability. Seamless Cover Tech for improved aerodynamics. Available in white and yellow.

TP B XS

Type – Tour

Constructed For – For players with speed but want to eat their cake too. Softer feel than the Tour B X with more spin.

Highlights – Also uses the Gradational Compression Core, Dual Dimple Design and Seamless Cover Tech. Available in white and yellow.

E12 Soft

Type – Soft Distance

Constructed For – For swing speeds under 100 mph that want added distance with a lower compression ball. Has a soft feel with low spin.

Highlights – Delta Wing Dimple pattern for less friction and drag off the tee. High Performance Polymer cover for faster ball speed. Available in white, matte green, matte red and matte yellow.

E12 Speed

Type – Straight Distance

Constructed For – Swing speeds over 100 mph with less workability than the TOUR B series. There will be a sacrifice in feel and control around the greens.

Highlights – Features the same Delta Wing Dimple Pattern as the Soft. Cover is durable surlyn (i.e. this ball is pretty rock hard. Available in white, matte green, matte red and matte yellow.

Tour B RX

Type – Tour X

Constructed For – For swing speeds less than tour caliber put with tour caliber performance. This is an excellent combo that we have not seen in much of our research.

Highlights – Low compression (66) but with the same materials in the Tour B X and Tour B SX. Includes the

Gradational Compression Core, Dual Dimple Design and Seamless Cover Tech. Available in white and yellow.

Tour B RSX

Type – Tour

Constructed For – Tour performance for those who don’t have tour speed. Much the same as the Tour B RX but with a much softer cover.

Highlights – Lower compression (64) but with the same materials in the Tour B X and Tour B SX. Includes the

Gradational Compression Core, Dual Dimple Design and Seamless Cover Tech. Available in white and yellow.

And That’s A Wrap…Kind Of

So Bridgestone is now covered and that takes or golf ball choices to 23 with just the four main manufacturers (I’m sure some other manufacturer will get mad but nobody wants to read about Volvik). I can say I have learned quite a bit through this research but not nearly enough.

Golf swings are like snowflakes, no two are alike. Be on the lookout for a post next week to tie all four brands together. I will attempt to be as thorough as possible and put some actual data together that indicates which ball(s) is best for which type of player.

My standard disclaimer…

As always, before you buy, The Geek’s recommendation is to consult your local PGA Professional or expert Club Fitter. Will check in soon for our final review with the Bridgestone golf balls.
