James, Larkspur, CA Bridgestone Golf Fan Mail. I switched to the e6 a month ago because I was playing in a tournament and didn't want to spend all the money on ProV1x's. I played some great golf, and just today I shot the round of my life - one over par with an ACE! I'm never going to play another golf ball again haha!!

Colleen, Sun Lakes, AZ Bridgestone Golf Fan Mail. On April 15, 2014, when I played in our Member/Guest Tournament, nobody wanted to lead off on hole #3, which is a par 3 and was playing 95 yards to the hole. I stepped up with a 9 iron and said I would see what kind of a leader I could be. I hit the ball nice and crisp and it landed 3 feet from the pin and went straight in the hole! I've been using the Bridgestone Lady Precept for the last 2 months and I love them!

Gene, New Jersey True Balance Putters Product Comment. I tried the True Balance putter last week at the PGA store, it felt so different and easy to swing for distance control and direction, you could feel the head hit the ball. Today I had to go back and buy it!! I can't wait to try it out this weekend!!

Skylar, Grand Rapids, MI True Balance Putters Product Comment. I hit one today at a demo day at a local golf shop. It felt AMAZING! I went there to buy a new driver and almost left with a new putter instead. I'm sure I won't make it through the first couple months of the season without picking one up.

Seeing Is Believing: Bridgestone Golf Unveils First Ever Live In-Store Video-Chat Ball Selection Service

New Service Allows Golfers to Video-Chat with Bridgestone's Ball-Fitting Experts at Point-of-Sale

COVINGTON, GA — Recognizing that golfers are baffled by the scores of different golf ball models available at retail, Bridgestone Golf, the #1 Ball-Fitter in Golf, announced today that it will bolster its popular online B-FIT program with the introduction of B-FIT Video Chat, a free, live face-to-face, point-of-sale video-chat golf ball consultation service. Since B-FIT's launch in 2010, Bridgestone has conducted over 325,000 free online consumer ball selection consultations, helping golfers of all skill levels find the right balls for their games. Now, the service is expanding to in-store live video consultation.

Bridgestone's B-FIT Video Chat launched in a beta test form at the PGA TOUR Superstore in Roswell, Georgia in mid-July. Since its launch, customers at PGA TOUR Superstore have raved about its convenience, ease of use and the unique ability it affords to have one-on-one, face-to-face conversations with Bridgestone's ball-fitting experts. Bridgestone's B-FIT video-chat program is housed in an in-store kiosk on a Bridgestone golf ball end cap display. The kiosk features a striking flat panel display 25" touchscreen monitor using the OpenTok Platform from TokBox. OpenTok allows face-to-face communications to be embedded into any site or service. Over 50,000 TokBox partners are currently using the technology worldwide, but Bridgestone Golf's version is the first to ever be used in a retail in-store environment in any channel.

"We realize that when consumers walk into a store looking for golf balls they have to be overwhelmed by having probably a hundred choices," said Dan Murphy, Vice President of Marketing - Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "We believe that by offering this live in-store consultation with one of our fitting experts, we add some clarity to the madness and make the buying experience much more rewarding for consumers. Thus far the incredible feedback we've received from both consumers and store personnel at the Roswell Superstore location tells us we are succeeding."

Bridgestone Golf plans to offer the B-FIT Video Chat service in select markets in the near future, and the company is currently working on an iPad version of the application that would be used to expand the concept widely to golf specialty and green grass stores throughout North America by the end of 2013.

In addition to the market test in Atlanta, Bridgestone Golf is previewing the technology at the 2012 WGC Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club this week. The B-FIT Video Chat kiosk is available for attendees to experience in the Bridgestone Performance Park at the event, throughout the tournament week.
