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!

Appleby And Bridgestone Make Boom at WGC NEC Invitational

Stuart Appleby Relies on TOUR B330-S ball and J33P Driver in Ascent to Top of PGA TOUR Longest Drive Category

Covington, Ga. — In a week in which Bridgestone announced its new title sponsorship of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio for the next five years, Bridgestone Golf staff player Stuart Appleby hit the longest drive of the PGA TOUR season. Teeing off in the third round on the par 5 16th hole, Appleby used the new Bridgestone Golf TOUR B330-S golf ball and his Bridgestone J33P driver to boom a mammoth drive of 427-yards.

In addition to his 427-yard moon shot, Appleby also produced two other 400-yard plus drives on the same hole in rounds 1 and 2 of 408-yards and 412-yards, respectively. For the week, Appleby led the field in driving distance averaging 341-yards per drive, beating out eventual tournament winner Tiger Woods by over six yards per drive.

Bridgestone Sweeps Driving Distance Categories on the PGA TOUR; Distance Leader Hend Earns More Equipment for Returning Military

With Appleby's impressive WGC driving performance, Bridgestone Golf now leads in both PGA TOUR statistical categories relevant to distance. In addition to Appleby's capture of the Longest Drive lead this week in Akron, Scott Hend continued his dominance in the PGA TOUR Driving Distance category with a performance at the Reno-Tahoe Open in which he averaged nearly 333-yards off the tee. Hend who plays the Bridgestone Golf B330 golf ball and J33R driver is currently averaging 318-yards per drive, which is more than three yards ahead of his nearest competitor Tiger Woods.

Hend's impressive performance this week in Reno translates into 33 new golf clubs for returning service men and women, as part of Bridgestone Golf's "The Long Drive Home" program. In the program, for every yard over 300 that Hend averages each week in competition Bridgestone Golf donates equipment to the American Legion who then distributes it to randomly chosen service men and women returning from action in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since the program's inception the last week of June, Bridgestone Golf has donated nearly $60,000 worth of products as a result of Hend's weekly driving distance average.
