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.

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)
