Bill, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida True Balance Putters Product Comment. Hello Bridgestone Golf. Just took my DT-01 True Balance Putter with the oversized grip to the golf course and practiced on the putting green for about 30 minutes. Was making everything. Took it to the golf course for 9 holes, shot 33 with a total of 12 putts. The putter looks great, feels great and is almost impossible to decelerate. I have played golf for over 50 years and this is the best putter I have ever had in the bag. Goodbye Scotty Cameron, hello Bridgestone Golf. The putter is pure gold and once folks get a chance to give it a try it will sell itself. Thanks Bridgestone Golf.

GP Golf Watching Matt Kuchar last week was extremely impressive. Very straight hitter, great short game and a swing that repeats on something called the inner circle....very few golfers get on and stay on the inner circle. Kuch manages to do so more often than he has one of the best coaches in golf to help him in Chris O'connell.

Jeff, Rogers, AR Bridgestone Golf Fan Mail. I've been playing golf for approx. 25 years. I have played a Titleist Pro V1 more than any other ball in the past. The local Academy Sports had a sale on the Bridgestone TOUR B330-S balls. Some of the guys in my golf group play Bridgestones, so I thought I would give them a try and purchased a dozen. That, and I honestly do enjoy the commercials! The next day, April 16, 2014, I broke them out for our usual Wednesday evening game. Hole 13, par 3, 173 yds. I hit a smooth high draw with a 7 iron, landed approx. 4 inches in front of the cup and disappeared. That was the FIRST hole in one that I have ever had in my life! I was beginning to believe that I would never have one. I retired the ball and picked up a skin after the round. I am a believer in the TOUR B330-S, and they will now be a regular companion with me on my future rounds! Thanks Bridgestone for helping me get my first ace!

Bridgestone Incorporates Material Innovation in New B330 Balls for Longer Distance and Same Great Feel

New Proprietary Mantle Layer Material Benefits Kuchar in Career Year on PGA TOUR

COVINGTON, GA — Bridgestone Golf, the #1 ball-fitter in golf, has unveiled the latest versions of its popular B330 series of Tour performance golf balls, featuring a proprietary new material used in the dual mantle construction. First debuting in Fall of 2010, the 2011 version of the TOUR B330 and TOUR B330-S golf balls now offer high swing-speed players more distance off the tee and the same great spin and feel that better golfers have become accustomed to with Bridgestone.

TOUR B330 and TOUR B330-S

The 2011 versions of the Bridgestone Golf TOUR B330 and B330-S get a power boost as a result of Bridgestone's new RD10 resin mantle layers. Bridgestone engineers created RD10 by subdividing the constituent of high repulsion, which increased the material density and resulted in higher initial velocity and an overall softening of the mantle layers.

The new RD10 material is currently in play on the PGA TOUR in the presence of Ryder Cup rookie Matt Kuchar. Kuchar is the first player on the Bridgestone Tour team to benefit from the new RD10 mantle layer material, currently using a TOUR prototype version of the new B330-S that has helped improve his driving distance while maintaining tremendous spin and feel on the greens. In addition, the new DUAL MANTLE design scientifically engineered to promote quicker restoration at impact, results in faster rebound and reduced spin at tour-level swing speeds. By further reducing the spin off of the longer clubs in the bag (driver, fairway metals, hybrids and long irons), the 2011 B330 series provides better wind piercing performance than ever before. In addition, Bridgestone's modified Gradational Hardness Layering, from the center of the core to the outer mantle allows for the smoothest and most efficient power transition of any Tour ball, ever. This means booming distance and superior accuracy off of longer clubs.

"With the new B330 family of balls we're letting better players know that it's OK to be long," said Dan Murphy, Vice President of Marketing - Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "We've heard our high-swing speed customers loud and clear, and the overwhelming majority still want one thing in their golf balls, more distance. According to a recent consumer survey we conducted, golfers are very pleased with our balls' spin performance around the greens. The thing every golfer wanted was more length. With all the industry spin on the new grooves out there right now, we think it is important that someone let golfers know what is really going to improve their scores - better length and accuracy. Neither of which comes from creating more spin."

Like their predecessors, the new B330 and B330-S will feature a SOFT Urethane 330-dimple design seamless cover for the ultimate in piercing consistent flight, and tour-level spin and control on the greens. However, for 2011, the TOUR B330-S dimple pattern will be redesigned to compensate for its softer cover and compression, and slightly higher driver spin that comes as a result. Bridgestone engineers have created a new shallower 330-dimple pattern with modified dimple spacing designed to reduce up-shoot spin, creating a flatter trajectory and wind performance consistent with that of the B330. In addition, the new dimple pattern fosters a shallower landing angle on tee-shots for more fairway roll.

Optimized for players with swing speeds greater than 105 mph, the 2011 TOUR B330 and TOUR B330-S golf balls feature 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.
