My coach was there to witness it and it will be going in the Minnetonka Star tribune. I just wanted to inform the great news and how good your balls are.

Amon, Los Angeles, CA Bridgestone Golf Fan Mail. I was fortunate to receive a trial set of the Bridgestone B330-S balls from The Hackers Paradise & Bridgestone for testing. I have played some of the best golf I never thought I was capable of with the combination of this ball and my clubs. My best shot came on a par 5 575 yard hole where I hit a 362 yard drive. Carried maybe 346 and rolled out the rest of the way. Then on another par 3, I hit a solid drive on the green and saw the ball roll back better than I had ever thought was capable of. Amazing Ball!

Bridgestone Golf Dispels Industry Myth With New Custom Golf Ball-Fitting System

Bridgestone Educates Consumers That Most Popular Choice Isn't Always Best for Their Game

Covington, Ga. — For a number of years now consumers have reaped the benefits of being custom-fit for golf clubs. With the ability to dial in shaft choices, grip choices and clubhead lofts and lies, players are maximizing their games and scoring better as a result. While custom club fitting was a significant improvement to the industry, it is only half of the equation. Today, Bridgestone is pleased to announce that it will now offer consumers the ability to get custom fit for their golf balls, as well.

The Bridgestone Golf custom-fitting system – "The Bridgestone Golf Challenge" – is a real playtest for consumers to learn first-hand how their current golf ball-of-choice stacks up against the Bridgestone offering, through a series of swing analyses. The Bridgestone Golf Challenge uses a sophisticated computer system named Science Eye, which allows Bridgestone to analyze each individual's swing in a complimentary 15-minute session. The Science Eye measures clubhead speed, ball speed, launch angle, backspin, sidespin and total distance of the consumer's current golf ball choice and then compares these same statistics to the results the consumer receives when using the fitting team's recommended golf ball model. Beta-testing of the ball-fitting system has documented that 73% of golfers in our sample are not playing the ball best suited for their swing.

National Rollout of "Challenge"

The Bridgestone Golf Challenge is set to launch this spring and will feature five teams of specially trained golf ball fitting professionals (Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, Mid-West, and West regions). These professionals will visit private and public golf course venues across the U.S. encouraging consumers to "take the Bridgestone Golf Challenge."

"We believe that when intelligent consumers are presented with facts and all the information, they will choose the proper golf balls for maximizing their game, not just the most popular," said Dan Murphy, Senior Director of Marketing, Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "There is a myth among golfers that if you're not playing a certain kind of ball, you're not a serious player. We hope that ball-fitting dispels this myth and is the first step in changing the dynamic of the golf industry – creating marketing based on proven science and technology, instead of pure emotion."

The Bridgestone Golf Challenge will kick-off nationwide in April of 2007 and will run through June. For information on how to schedule a fitting or to track when the Bridgestone Golf Challenge will be available in certain areas, visit www.bridgestonegolf.com.
