James, Larkspur, CA Bridgestone Golf Fan Mail. I switched to the e6 a month ago because I was playing in a tournament and didn't want to spend all the money on ProV1x's. I played some great golf, and just today I shot the round of my life - one over par with an ACE! I'm never going to play another golf ball again haha!!

Colleen, Sun Lakes, AZ Bridgestone Golf Fan Mail. On April 15, 2014, when I played in our Member/Guest Tournament, nobody wanted to lead off on hole #3, which is a par 3 and was playing 95 yards to the hole. I stepped up with a 9 iron and said I would see what kind of a leader I could be. I hit the ball nice and crisp and it landed 3 feet from the pin and went straight in the hole! I've been using the Bridgestone Lady Precept for the last 2 months and I love them!

Gene, New Jersey True Balance Putters Product Comment. I tried the True Balance putter last week at the PGA store, it felt so different and easy to swing for distance control and direction, you could feel the head hit the ball. Today I had to go back and buy it!! I can't wait to try it out this weekend!!

Skylar, Grand Rapids, MI True Balance Putters Product Comment. I hit one today at a demo day at a local golf shop. It felt AMAZING! I went there to buy a new driver and almost left with a new putter instead. I'm sure I won't make it through the first couple months of the season without picking one up.

bridgestonegolf @shawnholubgolf #B330S will provide more driver spin for added lift. Will also give you secondary benefit of increased green side control

Appleby And Bridgestone Team up For Week of 'Firsts' at Kapalua

Defending Champ Says 'Aloha' to New Bridgestone Equipment with Mercedes Repeat

Covington, Ga. — PGA TOUR star Stuart Appleby, in his FIRST official PGA TOUR event using new Bridgestone equipment, overcame a slow start in Hawaii becoming the FIRST person in history to repeat at the Mercedes Championships on the Plantation Course at Kapalua, all while awaiting the birth of his FIRST child. Appleby's down-to-the-wire win (the FIRST ever at Kapalua after an over par opening round) gives him golf's FIRST title of the 2005 season and Bridgestone Golf's FIRST ever PGA TOUR victory.

Bridgestone-Equipped Win

Appleby relied on the new Bridgestone TOUR B330 ball, Bridgestone J33P driver, J33B Blade irons and J33 AirMuscle utility clubs on his way to rounds of 74-64-66-67, in his season opening one-shot victory in Hawaii. The Bridgestone TOUR B330 features a Speed Elasticity Core for increased initial velocity at impact, delivering increased distance off the tee. This was never more evident than on the hole which started Appleby's final round charge, the Par 4, 6th. Appleby boomed an almost inhuman 389-yard drive to reach the green and leave himself with a 12-footer for eagle. Appleby made good on the eagle attempt and continued to roll from there.

"The new ball is just awesome," said Appleby. "I've picked up an additional 15 yards off the tee, and when you see this thing perform in the wind, you really know it's something special."

Appleby finished 5th in the field in driving distance for the week with an average of 287.1 yards per drive. Appleby also counted on the new Bridgestone gear to gain a top 5 finish in six other statistical categories, including such telling statistics as, birdies, eagles, putts per green and greens in regulation.

"We knew Stuart was going to have a great season when we first witnessed the way he performed with the new clubs and balls during testing sessions," said Dan Murphy, Director of Marketing, Bridgestone Golf. "What a great way to begin the new season, the stars are really beginning to align for us and for Stuart."

The Bridgestone TOUR B330 ball is already available at retail in select locations and the clubs Appleby relied on will be available March 1st, at golf specialty stores and green grass retailers nationwide.
