Bridgestone Provides Golfers With Another Way To 'B-FIT' For The Right Ball For Their Game

#1 Ball-Fitter In Golf Takes Consumer Education To New Level With First of Its Kind Live Chat Service

Covington, Ga. - As Bridgestone Golf nears 70,000 consumers fit by its Bridgestone Challenge – launch monitor based ball-fitting system, the company is once again demonstrating its penchant for innovation, introducing the first ever web based live-chat golf equipment consultation service – B-FIT. B-FIT is free and allows golfers to participate in a 2-way, one-on-one chat with Bridgestone's expert ball-fitting technicians. Through B-FIT, golfers have the ability to tap-into the Bridgestone ball-fitting experts' incredible depth of knowledge right from their computer.

Bridgestone's B-FIT service is the first service offered by a golf equipment manufacturer in which consumers have a direct, yet secure way, to consult with fitting experts through a web portal. Instead of answering a few questions via survey and receiving a ball recommendation, B-FIT employs much more of a consultative approach.

"We've fit nearly 70,000 golfers through the Bridgestone Challenge, yet we recognize that not all golfers are able to get out to one our events, so web based consultation plays an increasingly important role in educating golfers about what ball is best for their game," said Dan Murphy – Vice President of Marketing, Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "B-FIT will allow us to help golfers by digging deep into their swing characteristics, current challenges and preferences and then use that info to point them in the direction of a golf ball that can help maximize their performance."

B-FIT has been available in a test phase and has already served several thousand golfers on The service will officially launch June 11th.
