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 Expands J33 Wedge Family With New Black Satin Series

New Bridgestone J33™ Forged Wedges Offer Glare Reduction And Maximum Spin

Covington, Ga. — The new J33 Black Satin Forged Wedges offer a perfect blend of performance, feel and playability for skilled golfers looking for an advantage in the scoring zone, but in addition the new finish reduces glare and as a result makes the new wedges more versatile.

The J33 Black Satin Forged Wedges are forged from 1020 mild carbon steel for exceptionally soft feel on finesse shots. The wedges also boast U-grooves for maximizing spin and control on approach shots. To ensure, greater workability from the wedges, Bridgestone designed them like the original J33 Forged Wedges, with an optimum "Tour" head size and shape.

Bridgestone Golf also uses a double cut sole design to provide golfers with the ability to effectively use the wedges from a variety of sand and turf conditions. One of the most unique features of the Bridgestone J33 Forged Wedges is the long hosel, which is used to raise the center of gravity and produce a high spin, low trajectory shot for optimum control.

In addition, like all of the J33 Forged series of products all the wedges have been designed with a leading edge grind to reducing digging. The softened leading edge also helps to make the irons more playable from various turf conditions.

"Many better players will opt for the Black wedges because of the glare reduction and increased spin that results from the new finish," said Mike Moxie, Golf Club Marketing, Bridgestone Golf, Inc."

The J33 Black Satin Forged Wedges are available in a gap wedge (52-degree), sand wedge (56-degree) and lob wedge (60-degree) and come standard with a True Temper® Dynamic® Gold S300 shaft. The clubs also feature a Golf Pride® Tour Velvet grip.

The J33 Black Satin Forged wedges will feature a suggested retail price of $159 each and will be available in Fall 2005 at golf specialty stores and green grass retailers nationwide. For more information on the J33 Black Satin Forged Wedges and Bridgestone's entire product offering visit
