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.

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.

Jeff, Rogers, AR Bridgestone Golf Fan Mail. I've been playing golf for approx. 25 years. I have played a Titleist Pro V1 more than any other ball in the past. The local Academy Sports had a sale on the Bridgestone TOUR B330-S balls. Some of the guys in my golf group play Bridgestones, so I thought I would give them a try and purchased a dozen. That, and I honestly do enjoy the commercials! The next day, April 16, 2014, I broke them out for our usual Wednesday evening game. Hole 13, par 3, 173 yds. I hit a smooth high draw with a 7 iron, landed approx. 4 inches in front of the cup and disappeared. That was the FIRST hole in one that I have ever had in my life! I was beginning to believe that I would never have one. I retired the ball and picked up a skin after the round. I am a believer in the TOUR B330-S, and they will now be a regular companion with me on my future rounds! Thanks Bridgestone for helping me get my first ace!

Returning Service Men And Women Arrive Home to New Golf Equipment Thanks to Bridgestone And The American Legion

PGA TOUR Driving Distance Leader Hend To Earn Free Equipment for Military

Covington, Ga. — So that US soldiers returning from overseas can enjoy some of the very freedoms they have protected, Bridgestone Golf, Inc. is teaming up with The American Legion to provide free golf equipment to service men and women coming home from the Middle East and Afghanistan, through an innovative program called "The Long Drive Home." The amount of free golf gear to be donated—including Bridgestone clubs and balls—will be based on each week's impressive tee shots of current PGA TOUR Driving Distance leader and Bridgestone Tour Team member Scott Hend. The longer Hend's driving distance, the sweeter the 'drive home' for US service men and women.

Here is How It Works

For "The Long Drive Home," Bridgestone Golf will provide one SKU of golf equipment (drivers, fairway woods, sets of irons, wedges, etc.) for every yard over 300 that Scott Hend averages per week that he competes on the PGA TOUR. Bridgestone will provide the equipment on a weekly basis to The American Legion National Headquarters, where all products will be distributed via local posts to predetermined Middle East and Afghanistan military returnees.

For example, if Scott Hend averages 320 yards at the Barclays Classic, Bridgestone would donate 20 Bridgestone Golf J33R drivers, the same driver that Scott Hend uses, to randomly chosen active duty military returnees.

In addition, Bridgestone Golf will also donate one dozen TOUR B330 or TOUR B330-S golf balls for every yard Hend averages over his nearest PGA TOUR competitor per week. Through the 2005 Memorial Tournament, Hend leads the Tour in driving distance, averaging 319.2 yards per drive, which is nearly 12-yards more per drive than his nearest pursuer.

"We are very pleased about the opportunity to show our appreciation for the men and women who so valiantly serve the United States abroad," said Dan Murphy, Director of Marketing, Bridgestone Golf "We realize that while overseas, golf may be the farthest thing from soldiers' minds, but upon their return we think they'll yearn for life's pleasantries so many of us take for granted on a daily basis, such as playing golf. I would also be remiss if I did not thank The American Legion. Without them helping with much of the logistics of this program, it would have been difficult to bring 'The Long Drive Home' to fruition."

"We are delighted to work with Bridgestone Golf in recognizing these outstanding men and women of our armed forces who have served in harms way on our behalf," said Thomas P. Cadmus, national commander of the 2.7 million-member American Legion. "We are proud to facilitate the presentation of these welcome home gifts to America's newest veterans."

"The Long Drive Home" program commences at the Barclays Classic in Harrison, NY on June 20th and is scheduled to run through the end of the 2005 official PGA TOUR season.
