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!

World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to Host International Field

Akron, Ohio, USA — The World Golf Championships were created to bring together the world's best golfers in competition. In what continues to be an international affair, 40 players hailing from 17 different countries are currently qualified for this year's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, on August 22-27.

They earned their places in the field by winning designated events around the globe or by being members of the 2005 United States and International Presidents Cup teams.

In addition to the players who are currently qualified, the field will also feature any remaining players from the top-50 of the Official World Golf Ranking and members of the U.S. and European Ryder Cup teams who are not already qualified.

The game's top international players such as Vijay Singh, Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia and U.S. Open Champion Geoff Ogilvy have all qualified. Australia (eight players) and England (seven players) are the two countries with the most players currently qualified. The Australian contingency includes 2006 World Golf Championship-Accenture Match Play Championship and U.S. Open Champion Geoff Ogilvy as well as 2006 Mercedes Championships and Shell Houston Open winner Stuart Appleby. Peter Lonard will join Craig Parry, Robert Allenby, Verizon Heritage Aaron Baddeley, Mark Hensby, Bay Hill Invitational champion Rod Pampling and Adam Scott.

Honda Classic winner Luke Donald leads the England contingent of players. Donald is joined by David Howell, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter, Paul Casey, Thomas Bjorn, and John Bickerton.

South Africa has five players qualified for this year's event. Trevor Immelman guaranteed himself a place in the field by holding off Tiger Woods at this year's Cialis Western Open. Retief Goosen, Tim Clark, Nissan Open champion and winner of the PGA TOUR's West Coast Swing Rory Sabbatini and Charl Schwartzel have also qualified. Perennial top-10 ranked Ernie Els would currently qualify for this year's event as he is well inside the top 50 in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Johan Edfors, who has won three times on the European Tour, will be joined in the field by fellow Swedes, including Memorial Tournament champion Carl Pettersson, Commercialbank Qatar Master winner Henrik Stenson and Robert Karlsson.

Northern Ireland and Ireland send 2003 Bridgestone Invitational champion Darren Clarke as well as Padraig Harrington and Paul McGinley.

Clarke won the 2003 Bridgestone Invitational by four strokes with a final-round 67. Clarke also defeated Woods in the finals at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship in 2000. Clarke has won close to $5 million in his career at World Golf Championships events and is the second-leading money winner at the Bridgestone Invitational with more than $1.6 million.

"When you get here and see all the pictures of all the previous winners and who's who in golf, it's one of those places that I've grown up watching. It's just a fantastic golf course, tough but very fair," Clarke said.

Harrington was also a member of the 2004 Ryder Cup team and has wins at the 2004 Linde German Masters as well as the 2005 Honda Classic and Barclays Classic on the PGA TOUR.

A pair of Spaniards, Sergio Garcia and Miguel Angel Jimenez is also qualified.

The world's third-ranked ranked player Vijay Singh (Fiji), PLAYERS Championship winner Stephen Ames (Trinidad and Tobago), Angel Cabrera (Argentina), Michael Campbell (New Zealand), K.J. Choi (Korea), Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano (Germany), Shiv Kapur (India), Thomas Levet (France), Colin Montgomerie (Scotland), Tatsuhiko Takahashi (Japan) and Mike Weir (Canada) round out the list of international players who have qualified.

"International players have always enjoyed success here at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational," said Tom Strong, Executive Director of the Bridgestone Invitational. "These events were created to give the world's strongest golfers a chance to compete against each other and they have accomplished just that."
