Jacob, Shorewood, Minnesota Bridgestone Golf Fan Mail. Hello Bridgestone! My name is Jacob Pedersen and i am 14 years old. on tuesday, April 23, i hit my first hole in one using the yellow e6 ball (which is now my favorite ball). And the hole right after that I drove the green! your golf balls gave me great confidence and i want to thank you guys. 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. Thank you so much and i hope there are more to come using Bridgestone balls.

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!

Kuchar Relies on Bridgestone for First Tour Win in 7 Years

Bridgestone Tour Team Member Trusts 4-piece B330-S and new J38 Driver in Victory at Turning Stone Resort Championship

Covington, GA - In Verona, New York, this weekend - former U.S. Amateur Champion - Matt Kuchar relied on his Bridgestone Golf arsenal to help him survive difficult weather conditions and endure a six-hole sudden death playoff in route to winning the 2009 Turning Stone Resort Championship. The victory earned Kuchar a $1.08 million first place check and vaulted him into 25th place on the 2009 PGA TOUR OFFICIAL MONEY LIST (the top 30 finishers at season's end earn invitations to the 2010 Masters and U.S. Open). With the win, his second career PGA TOUR title, Kuchar has inserted himself into consideration for 2009 PGA TOUR COMEBACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR

With rain and wind playing a factor throughout the weekend, the event placed a premium on accuracy and the ability to recover after an errant shot. Kuchar did the latter better than the competition this weekend, carding par or better in nearly 3 out every 4 attempts when missing a green-in-regulation. In addition, Kuchar used the new Bridgestone J38 prototype driver to improve his driving accuracy from his season numbers of fewer than 65% of fairways hit to more than 75% this week, none more critical than the 78th hole where his opponent found water off the tee.

"Matt has easily had his most consistent year on the PGA TOUR this year, recording top 10 finishes in several big events and now recording a win," said Dan Murphy, Senior Director of Marketing - Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "We were confident that it was just a matter of time until he broke into the winner's circle again and we're happy that he did so relying on Bridgestone balls and clubs."

In his victory Kuchar had the following Bridgestone equipment in his bag:

  • 2009 Bridgestone Golf TOUR B330-S Golf Ball
  • Bridgestone J38 prototype driver (9.5 degree)
  • Bridgestone Golf J33 AirMuscle #3
  • Bridgestone Golf WC Design Wedges (54 and 60 degree)
  • TourStage Z101 irons (4-PW)
