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.

Bridgestone Becomes Official Sponsor of World Golf Championships

(PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL) -- The International Federation of PGA Tours has announced that Bridgestone Sports Co., Ltd. has become an Official Sponsor of the World Golf Championships for 2005.

Bridgestone Sports is a worldwide leader in manufacturing and marketing premium golf equipment including balls, clubs and accessories.

"We are pleased to announce Bridgestone's new role as an Official Sponsor of the World Golf Championships," said PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem on behalf of the International Federation of PGA Tours. "We look forward to a long-term relationship with Bridgestone and hope that it will grow over time."

"We are honored to enter into this relationship with the World Golf Championships," said Hisashi Kawano, the president of Bridgestone Sports Co., Ltd. "The World Golf Championships is a highly regarded international series of events that fits perfectly with the international nature of the Bridgestone family of brands."

The World Golf Championships series features elite players in a variety of competitive formats at venues around the world. Since the series debut in 1999, World Golf Championships have been held in seven countries. When the Algarve World Cup in Portugal is held this November, that number will increase to eight.

The agreement will allow for Bridgestone to advertise and leverage on-site relationship building benefits around each of the three remaining 2005 World Golf Championships events. The next World Golf Championships event is the NEC Invitational, August 16-21 at Firestone CC in Akron, Ohio, followed by the American Express Championship at San Francisco's Harding Park Golf Course, October 4-9 and the Algarve World Cup in Portugal, November 15-20 at the Victoria Clube de Golfe-Vilamoura, in the Algarve region of Portugal. The first World Golf Championships event of the year, the Accenture Match Play Championship, took place in February at La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California and was won by David Toms.

Additionally, Bridgestone gains the right to promote its Official Sponsor status in all of its advertising.

Accenture, American Express, NEC and Portugal are worldwide Umbrella Sponsors of the World Golf Championships, while JELD-WEN, Kohler and Bridgestone are Official Sponsors.
