2017 18 Days of Golf, Gift 1: Bridgestone Golf Tour B golf balls


For Gift 1 of the 2017 18 Days of Golf, we have two dozen of Bridgestone Golf's successor to the popular B330 line: the Tour B.

Earlier in 2017, Bridgestone introduced the Tour B line of golf balls, coming out with four balls like the B330 series, but targeted to golfers in a different way.

The Tour B has the Tour B X and Tour B XS balls for low-scoring, faster-swinging players who prioritize feel. The X is the ball geared toward accuracy, more greenside spin and control, while the XS is designed for more distance and less spin off the tee.

The Tour B RX and Tour B RXS are for players who don't score as well and prioritize distance, with a lower-compression offering compared to the X/XS group. The RX remains the control ball, while the RXS has more distance in mind.

The SlipRes cover with new dimples provide spin with scoring clubs and less spin off the tee, while the gradational core helps reduce sidespin in the X/RX, which causes you to miss targets near and far, while it works in the XS/RXS models to deliver more distance.

We're giving away two dozen Bridgestone Golf Tour B balls through our Twitter account! All you have to do to enter is follow @GolfNewsNet on Twitter and retweet our Tour B contest tweet before 11/28 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. Good luck!
