Bridgestone would like do some pre-release testing with The Sand Trap. Bridgestone has allotted 25 dozen balls of the 2014 B330 series balls (Tour B330, Tour B330-S, Tour B330-Rx and Tour B330-RXS) for members to test under embargo.

Here are the requirements:

- Looking for members that are in warmer climates where they can test now.

- If you've never done a Bridgestone fitting you need to go through B-FIT to help select with model is best for you.  Models available for testing are the Tour B330, Tour B330-S, Tour B330-Rx and Tour B330-RXS You can do the B-Fit stuff HERE

- Write a product review or post about your experiences with the ball in a thread (we'll let you know).  This requirement should be done in a timely fashion.

I'm still waiting for a free hat or a bowl of soup or something for coming up with their "Bridging the gap" slogan. :mad:

Well I don't let winter stop me playing, so I can test this weekend but it's still going to be 40 degrees on Long Island. I assume they're interested in warmer areas only? I do love their balls almost as much as I like free stuff. I'm a B330 person btw.

Maybe, but Lee Trevino pushing a vacuum in the pro shop is hilarious!

    • I'm in a hotel in HK at 1:08am doing practice swings with the chair drill and a metronome just to get my tempo dialed in a bit. I should probably get some sleep for my early flight and factory visit right after lunch, but I can't fall asleep. . .
    • I don't think I've ever in my life been distracted by where someone was standing on the putting green.  I don't even have any distinct memories of knowing where anyone was standing while I was putting. I would probably object to someone waving their hand between my face and ball or peeing on my foot or something.
    • Welcome to TST! Good to hear you have the chance to increase your golf play. As for your clubs... Cobra F6 irons ended up in the Game Improvement category; given how far you hit the ball you should be OK with them. F6 reviews noted the irons have slightly different head designs up and down the line, to meet the demands of long irons vs. short irons. Cobra drivers and long clubs have a good reputation. I especially liked their FlyZ driver from a couple of years back, one of my top three favorites at the time. I play a FlyZ 4 hybrid, it's usually my go-to club for longer approaches and tight tee shots on evil short par 4s. Be aware that the Cobra long clubs have slightly heavier shafts than average; so if you're on the line between one flex and another, probably go with the gentler flex. But, test this out on the launch monitor and find out for sure. Note: Pick up a sand wedge if possible; doesn't have to be new, just decent grooves. As for winter lessons: if you can find an indoor lesson place with a good pro, you can get a jump on next year. Although hitting off of mats is not ideal, it's better than nothing. You can sense if the shot was a little fat on contact. If a golf shop is deserted on a winter's day, sometimes you can rent a half hour on the launch monitor and hit some balls. The shop can give you an idea of when hitting stall dead time will be. Where in Pennsylvania do you live? The head TST guy Erik operates out of Erie.
    • I'm not easily distracted and don't really care what people are doing while I am putting, but if I did I would prefer they be 30' back.  I don't understand people who get distracted by where people are standing, but I respect it and do my best not to let my lack of concern for these things effect them.   I was once standing around 20' or so behind someone who was lining up to a putt.  He took a few practice strokes and then stopped and angrily waved me to move.  (I didn't know him at all).  I don't see how I could have been in his line of site, but I said a simple "I'm sorry" and stayed far away from him any time it was his turn going forward.
    • Virtually nothing distracts me on the course. That gets me in trouble occasion, however. I forget that other people can, and do, get distracted, and I find myself doing somehting I shouldn't be doing while they're hitting (generally on the tee).  That being said, I could not care any less where they stand, as long as it isn't between me and the hole. ;)
