Weekly fantasy golf prizes until US OPEN: A box of Bridgestone Golf e5 Golf Balls!
Being a patron of my two golf sites Hooked On Golf Blog and The Golf Space is good for your game. In this particular case, it is because you can be the happy recipient of 10 weeks of prizes from Bridgestone Golf‘s sponsorship of HOG Space Fantasy Golf.
Last week’s fantasy winner for the Masters and the next TEN weeks’ fantasy winners through the US OPEN will receive a box of Bridgestone’s e5 golf balls! Many thanks to Bridgestone for their support.
My fantasy golf league goes the entire PGA Tour season. There are many prizes from EIGHT golf companies! If you haven’t signed up, you can still do so for free and you’ll have chances to win many prizes. It is NOT too late so do it now! Refer to the HOG SPACE FANTASY PAGE for details.
Normally I like to get more holes under my belt with a golf ball before I review it. But by the first round I’ll almost always have reached my primary conclusions anyway. I’m speeding up the review process on the Nike 20XI-X golf ball because I can, and I want to beat everyone else to the scoop.
The 20XI-X is one of two new balls Nike is releasing soon. The 20XI-X or what I call the “X” version, is the longer, distance ball. The 20XI-S (“S” version) is the spin/control version.
During Masters week next week my pals at Nike are releasing “Masters Green” limited editions of the Lunar Control golf shoe and also the new 20XI golf balls. Check them out below.

Every time Titleist changes to a new model of Pro V1 and Pro V1x they alter the ball slightly where the text on the ball says “Pro V1” or “Pro V1x.” The text and aiming arrows, or what Titleist fancily calls A.I.M. for “Alignment Integrated Marking” for each model, vary slightly.

When you’re fishing balls out of the lake or the bushes, these photos of the Alignment Integrated Marking will tell you if you found one of the cool new Pro V1’s for 2011.

Most golfers like to shag balls out of the woods, the lake, hazards etc. I’ve always wondered what sort of performance loss, if any, those balls have after sitting there for days or weeks or years. Here on my home course we have a lot of water hazards. I’ve fished hundreds of balls from there, and the swampy surroundings. We also have many freeze/thaw days and nights in the spring and fall. I’ve wondered what effect freezing and thawing has or the ball sitting submerged in water for “x” days.
Now I have a tool to test my balls
All joking aside, Hexcaliber is a serious machine. This solid chrome steel unit performs three different tests on golf balls:
Test One – compression/hardness
