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 and Hurley Team Up With Birdies for the Brave®

Season-Long Initiative Will Fund Military Homefront Groups Based on Former Navy Officer's Cuts Made, Top 10 finishes and Wins on PGA TOUR

COVINGTON, GA — Bridgestone Golf, The #1 Ball-Fitter in Golf, announced today that it has teamed up with Bridgestone Tour Team member Billy Hurley III to raise funds for Birdies for the Brave®, throughout the 2012 PGA TOUR season. Retroactive to Hurley's first event of the year, The Sony Open in Hawaii, Bridgestone will make a donation to PGA TOUR Charities, Inc. on behalf of Birdies for the Brave based upon Hurley's tournament finishes. For every PGA TOUR cut made in 2012, Bridgestone will donate $1,000. In addition, every time Hurley records a Top 10 finish Bridgestone will donate $5,000. Most impressively, any victory earned by Hurley will net the charity $10,000.

After a highly decorated collegiate golf career (that included a spot on the 2004 U.S. Walker Cup Team) and graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy in 2004, Hurley served for five years in the United States Navy. Hurley's service included a stint as lieutenant aboard the destroyer USS Chung-Hoon in the Persian Gulf. Hurley's duty while aboard the Chung-Hoon was safeguarding two of the world's largest oil platforms during the Iraq War. Now having fulfilled his dream of earning a PGA TOUR card, Hurley is eager to use his newfound celebrity to help his brothers and sisters in arms.

"We are thrilled to have Billy Hurley lend his support alongside Bridgestone Golf as we work to honor and show appreciation to the courageous men and women of our U.S. Armed Forces and their families through Birdies for the Brave," said former 12-year distinguished Navy SEAL Stephen Kupcha, the PGA TOUR's senior manager of public relations and military/community outreach. "We appreciate his service and sacrifice in service to our country, and applaud his efforts to help generate funds and awareness for the benefit of fellow military members, wounded warriors and military families."

Hurley will proudly display the Birdies for the Brave logo on his Bridgestone Golf staff bag throughout the 2012 PGA TOUR season. In appreciation of his commitment to charity, PGA TOUR will also highlight Hurley in promotion of the Birdies for the Brave program in its 2012 marketing efforts.

"We are delighted to continue our company's extensive track record of supporting U.S. military charities, through this innovative campaign with Birdies for the Brave and Billy Hurley III," said Dan Murphy, vice president of marketing - Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "Since our entrance into the U.S. market in 2005, Bridgestone Golf has proudly supported a variety of charities dedicated to improving the lives of the men and women who served with valor in defending our nation's freedom. This program is all the more special because Billy is one of those brave men and women."

Bridgestone plans to track Hurley's success on the course through its website,, and golf fans should check the site to track progress.
