Bridgestone's Aussie Bomber Hend Takes PGA TOUR Driving Distance Lead
Scott Hend Relies on TOUR B330 ball and J33R Driver To Catapult to Top of Driving Distance Category
Covington, Ga. — Bridgestone Golf, Inc. is pleased to announce that Bridgestone Tour team member, Scott Hend has
used his latest performance with the new B330 ball and J33R driver to take over the top spot in PGA TOUR driving distance.
The Aussie is averaging 309.2 yards per tee shot, which is two yards ahead of his nearest competitor.
Hend is already notorious for his prodigious length off the tee, and by adding the new TOUR B330 and J33 driver to his arsenal;
he looks to be emerging as an early favorite for the 2005 PGA TOUR driving distance title.
"The ball speed that you get at impact from the TOUR B330 is just awesome," said Hend. "I firmly believe that the Bridgestone
B330 has added new length to my game. We have a long way to go in the 2005 season to begin thinking about end of year titles,
but with the B330 and the J33R driver let's just say I feel very confident about my prospects."
