Bill, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida True Balance Putters Product Comment. Hello Bridgestone Golf. Just took my DT-01 True Balance Putter with the oversized grip to the golf course and practiced on the putting green for about 30 minutes. Was making everything. Took it to the golf course for 9 holes, shot 33 with a total of 12 putts. The putter looks great, feels great and is almost impossible to decelerate. I have played golf for over 50 years and this is the best putter I have ever had in the bag. Goodbye Scotty Cameron, hello Bridgestone Golf. The putter is pure gold and once folks get a chance to give it a try it will sell itself. Thanks Bridgestone Golf.

Mr_Hufflebuff Played a Bridgestone for the first time and shot 82 at sandcreek, I like that ball. I gave @lukeg88 crap forever for hitting Bridgestone.

GP Golf Watching Matt Kuchar last week was extremely impressive. Very straight hitter, great short game and a swing that repeats on something called the inner circle....very few golfers get on and stay on the inner circle. Kuch manages to do so more often than he has one of the best coaches in golf to help him in Chris O'connell.

Bridgestone Sports Initiates Patent Infringement Action Against The Acushnet Company

Titleist's Leading Golf Balls Allegedly Infringe Upon Several Bridgestone-owned U.S. Patents

Covington, Ga. — On March 7, 2005, Bridgestone Sports Co., Ltd., and its wholly owned subsidiary, Bridgestone Golf, Inc., filed a patent infringement lawsuit against the Acushnet Company in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware. Bridgestone Sports is currently the leading golf ball manufacturer in Japan with a 40% share of that market, and Acushnet remains the leader in the U.S. golf ball market.

In the complaint, Bridgestone Sports charges Acushnet with willful infringement of ten United States patents from Bridgestone Sports' extensive patent portfolio covering multi-piece solid core golf ball technology. Among the Acushnet balls charged with infringement are: Titleist® Pro V1™, the Titleist® Pro V1x™, the Titleist® NXT™, Titleist® NXT Tour, the Titleist® DT SoLo, and the Pinnacle® Exception™ golf balls.

Bridgestone Sports is seeking an injunction against Acushnet from infringing upon the company's patents and for unspecified compensation for damages that have occurred as a result of past infringement. In addition, Bridgestone Sports seeks a declaratory judgment of non-infringement with respect to four United States patents owned by Acushnet.

"During the course of several months of negotiations with Acushnet, we attempted to settle this dispute; however, when negotiations failed, Acushnet left us with no other course of action, but to file suit," said Mr. Kawano, President, Bridgestone Sports Co., Ltd. "We remain hopeful that this matter can be settled, but in the meantime, we must protect our intellectual property rights. We will do so passionately and we are committed to see this matter to the end, in order to properly remedy the infringement."
