Nick Price continues Bridgestone Golf's Champions TOUR winning ways at Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf
Hall of Famer Relies on 4-piece B330 in Team Victory In Savannah
Covington, Ga. - In Savannah, Georgia this weekend, Nick Price teamed up
with Mark O'Meara to win the 2010 Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf, making it 4 out
of 7 Champions events played in 2010 having been won by Bridgestone Golf balls.
In his second career Champions TOUR victory, Price made a title-clinching putt on
the 2nd hole of a sudden death playoff to secure his team's victory.
"Nick has finished Top 5 or better in 5 events this year, so it was only a matter
of time before he collected that second career Champions Tour victory," said Dan
Murphy, Vice President of Marketing – Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "Our Bridgestone ambassadors
have really created a strong buzz for the brand on the Champions Tour this year,
thanks to their great play. We look forward to Nick, Fred Couples and Bridgestone's
winning ways continuing throughout the year."
"Price relied on the incredible feel and consistency of the Bridgestone Golf TOUR
B330 golf ball to help his team record a tournament total of 28-under par, good
enough to get them into a sudden death playoff, which they would win on the 2nd
hole. During the sudden death playoff, Price and his competitors faced some of the most
adverse conditions of the week and the wind-cheating performance of the B330 golf
ball really helped him navigate the blustery conditions."
The B330 family of balls features a street price of $42.99 per dozen (suggested retail
price of $56 per dozen) and are available now at golf specialty stores and green
grass retailers nationwide.
In addition to the TOUR B330 golf balls, Nick Price also utilized Bridgestone Golf's
TOUR glove. For more information on
