At the PGA Show demo day I walked by a covered booth and saw this guy hitting balls about one per 1-2 seconds via an automated ball dispenser. He was over three hours into his world record attempt for the most golf balls hit in 12 hours. He did break the record and ended up with 7721.
Below they’re taking a quick break to tape up the blisters…
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend a super high end media only event at this year’s PGA Show, the announcement by my good friends at Bridgestone Golf about their new flavors of B330-RX. The RX (RX must be because the ball is prescription strength) is perhaps my favorite golf ball.
Two new series, the RX and RXS will cater even more to golfers (like me) with slower swing speeds.
I’ve had the pleasure of evaluating several different brands and models of golf balls over the last season. I’m beginning to wonder if any company is making a bad golf ball these days. One of the very best is the Srixon Z-Star and Z-Star-x series. The Z-Star is the softer and and more “spinny” of the two.
The Z-Star is a three layer ball. The three layers are the core, mid-layer and cover.
The cover is .02 inches and made of urethane. The thin cover helps the player control shots and gives the player great control in the short game.
