Bridgestone's In The Money!
Bridgestone Tour Players Lead the Money Lists of 3 Different Pro Tours
Covington, Ga. - Led by future Hall of Famer Fred Couples,
Bridgestone Golf's Tour Team currently boasts three players ranked
#1 on the Champions Tour, LPGA Tour and Nationwide Tour money lists, respectively.
It is no secret that Fred Couples has set the Champions Tour ablaze in the first
few months of the year, winning 3 times and earning over $1 million even before
the year's first Major. Couples has done so, relying on the Bridgestone TOUR B330
golf ball and J38 Dual Pocket Cavity Back irons.
In addition, Ai Miyazato, Bridgestone Golf worldwide tour team member, is the top
money winner on the LPGA Tour, having won 3 of the first 6 events of 2010. Miyazato
trusts her game to a full bag of Bridgestone TourStage equipment.
Rounding out Bridgestone's "terrific trio" is Nationwide Tour rising star –
Kevin Chappell. Through 9 events on the 2010 Nationwide Tour, Chappell has recorded 4
top 10's including his first professional victory at the Fresh Express Classic.
Chappell's equipment arsenal includes the Bridgestone Golf TOUR B330-S golf ball,
J38 driver, irons and wedges.
Bridgestone Golf is also climbing its way to the top on the PGA TOUR. In 2010, Bridgestone
Golf's Matt Kuchar has relied on his B330-S golf ball and prototype J38 driver and
irons to ascend into the Top 10 of the FedEx Cup standings, continuing on his ‘career
"2010 has been an incredible year for our brand on the professional tours worldwide
and in the marketplace," said Dan Murphy, Bridgestone Golf – Vice President of Marketing.
"We've never aimed to have the biggest tour team, just the best group of quality
players and quality individuals. We're excited that the rest of the golf world is
enjoying these ‘best-in-class performances!"
