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's Appleby Rides B330-S to Mercedes 3-Peat

"King of Kapalua" Defends His Crown with Full Arsenal of Bridgestone Equipment

Covington, Ga. — PGA TOUR superstar Stuart Appleby kicked off the New Year in style, winning the season-opening Mercedes Championships for the third time in three years, pulling off golf's first ever Hawaiian Hat Trick. In what is becoming a PGA TOUR post-Holiday tradition, Appleby used his Bridgestone Golf J33 series of equipment and TOUR B330-S golf ball for overpowering tee shots and deft touch around the greens, propelling him to birdie and the title on the first hole of a sudden death playoff. With his victory, Appleby becomes the first player in over 50-years to capture the winners only event three years in a row.

Appleby relied on the Bridgestone TOUR B330-S ball, Bridgestone J33P driver, J33B Blade irons and Bridgestone Air Muscle utility club on his way to rounds of 71-72-70-71, in his season opening victory over Vijay Singh in Maui. The Bridgestone TOUR B330-S features a Soft Speed Elasticity Core for increased initial velocity at impact for increased distance off the tee. In fact, during the first round on the Par 4 12th hole, Appleby boomed the second longest drive of the week with a 426-yard blast through the green. Overall for the week, Appleby finished second in the field in driving distance, averaging 274-yards per drive.

"The B330-S is just awesome in the windy conditions with the seamless cover consistently boring through the wind," said Appleby. "Getting up on the tee, facing a stiff breeze, nothing makes you feel more confident than knowing that you've got the right equipment. That's what I get from Bridgestone."

In addition to his outstanding finish in the driving distance category, Appleby also counted on his Bridgestone gear to gain a top-5 finish in five other statistical categories, including birdies, eagles, pars, greens in regulation and a first place finish in putting - averaging just 29.3 putts per round. "We are excited for Stuart and his family, and pleased that Bridgestone was able to play a part in his hallmark achievement," said Dan Murphy, Senior Director of Marketing, Bridgestone Golf. "This win is a tremendous momentum builder for both Stuart and the Bridgestone brand. We are confident there is much more to come throughout 2006."

The Bridgestone TOUR B330-S, J33P driver, Bridgestone Air Muscle Utility Iron and J33B blade irons are all currently available at golf specialty stores and green grass retailers nationwide.

  • Ball - TOUR B330-S
