    Other than the Bridgestone balls, I’ve never owned anything else from their lineup but have always liked the look and sight lines I’ve seen. Help a brother out....!!!!

    I'm always up for playing this game.

    Driver: Tour B XD-3. Looking at the website it seems like this is the most neutral setup driver. I prefer not to have draw bias for sure.
    Fairway: Tour B JGR. It sounds like it's pretty forgiving and a high launcher which I can use in that area.
    Irons: Tour B X-CB. Forged, should be relatively playable and they look sexy as hell.

    The J40 DPC are still one of my favorite irons ever and are what brought me to THP so I'll be following this one closely.

    I have a "thing" for irons and the Bridgestone lineup is fantastic. Ideally, I'd like to try the drivers and fairways but here are my thoughts.
    Driver: Tour B XD-3, 9.5*
    Fairway: Tour B 3FW, 15*
    Hybrid: Tour B, 3H, 21*
    Driving Iron: Tour B, X-HI, 4I, 23* (always wanted to test one of these...2 hybrids might be the better answer)
    IRONS: Tour B X-CB, 5-PW
    Driver: G400 SFT, 10*
    Fairway: Rogue 3W
    Hybrids: Rogue X 3 & Rogue 4
    Irons: Apex CF16, 5-AW
    Wedges: CBX 54* and 58*
    Putter: O-Works Red Marxman
    Ball: B330-RX

    I haven't hit any Bridgestone clubs before but based on the descriptions I would probably be:

    Driver: Tour B XD-3 10.5
    Fairway: tour B (not sure if 3 or 5)
    Hybrid: JGR 3
    Irons: I'm guessing I should use the HF1 but I like the Looks of the HF2 better. If one worked better though, that would be the winner.

    How do the participants rate the areas of your game? Driver - Irons - Wedges - Putter

    As of today; I'd say my game (strongest to weakest) is Putter - Wedges - Driver - Irons.

    The new Bridgestone wedges look great. Excited to start hitting balls with them in ~57 days. As mentioned earlier, I have a thing for irons and hope we get a chance to try them on the range. Tour B X-CB or JGR HF2??? Ponder continues...
    Driver: G400 SFT, 10*
    Fairway: Rogue 3W
    Hybrids: Rogue X 3 & Rogue 4
    Irons: Apex CF16, 5-AW
    Wedges: CBX 54* and 58*
    Putter: O-Works Red Marxman
    Ball: B330-RX

    My hometown. This is going to be sweet for the lucky few. I had a chance to play Firestone West once and it was great! Lots of people I’ve talked with about the courses favor the north course.
