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.

Snedeker's "Double-Dip": TOUR Championship Win Delivers Golf's Premier Prize - The FedExCup

Caps Record-Year for Bridgestone Tour Team

COVINGTON, GA — Continuing the best season of his professional golf career, Brandt Snedeker doubled-up with the TOUR B330 golf ball to command a three-shot victory at the 2012 TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola on Sunday and capture the coveted FedExCup. Snedeker negotiated the storied East Lake Golf Club in metro Atlanta in 10-under par, recording rounds of 68-70-64-68. With the win, the biggest of his career, Snedeker also captured the 2012 FedExCup and the $10 million bonus that comes with it. Snedeker's TOUR Championship win marks the fourth PGA TOUR title of his career. Together, the wins delivered $11.44 million for the week and a season total of $14,989,739.

In his victory, Snedeker relied on Bridgestone's TOUR B330 golf ball, J40 Cavity Back Irons and J40 Black Oxide Wedges.

Brandt's Bridgestone Arsenal

Snedeker finished the week ranked #1 in Birdies (20), #1 in Stroked-Gained-Putting (1.676), #2 in Driving Accuracy (66%), #2 in Putts Per Round (27.5) and T7 in Greens-In-Regulation (69.4%). After an early final Round double bogey, Snedeker relied on the increased consistency and spin performance of the TOUR B330 and the precision shot-making of the J40 Cavity Back irons to bounce back and card four birdies down the stretch.

"The new dual dimples on the cover of the B330 ball allows it to perform great in the wind," said Snedeker. "Even in the blustery conditions at East Lake, I had confidence in firing at pins coming down the stretch, because the ball holds its line so well."

"Brandt has turned in one incredible year, and we're just glad that we could play a small part in it," said Dan Murphy, Vice President of Marketing - Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "To have our first FedExCup Champion is amazing and for him to seal-the-deal here, in Bridgestone's hometown of Atlanta, just makes it even more special."

Snedeker's victory at the TOUR Championship combined with FedExCup award gives him a total earnings windfall of $11,144,000, vaulting him into first place on the 2012 PGA TOUR Money List and into the Top 10 in the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time in his career.

Sneds' FedExCup Championship Continues Hallmark Year for Bridgestone Tour Team

Brandt Snedeker's impressive performance at East Lake this weekend makes for a fitting exclamation point on the Bridgestone Golf Tour Team's 2012 season to remember. The 2012 season featured victories on all four major professional golf tours (PGA TOUR, CHAMPIONS, Web.Com, and LPGA), and now Bridgestone Golf players currently hold three of the most prestigious titles in golf (2012 PLAYERS Championship, 2012 TOUR Championship and 2012 FedExCup Champ). In addition, this week, Bridgestone Tour team members, Davis Love III, Fred Couples, Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker will all play a part in the United States team's effort to to regain the Ryder Cup. Below is a rewind of the Bridgestone Tour team's most memorable moments from the 2012 season.
