Team Love Relies On Bridgestone in Thrilling Victory at PNC Father-Son Challenge
COVINGTON, GA — This weekend in Orlando, Florida, Bridgestone Tour
Team member Davis Love III teamed with son, Dru,
to win the 2013 PNC Father-Son Challenge. The duo needed Dru to sink a clutch 8-foot
birdie putt on the final hole to best the team of Larry Nelson and Josh Nelson by
a stroke. For the tournament the Loves shot 23-under par (60-61) on the par 72 Ritz-Carlton
Grande Lakes course. The 2013 Father-Son Challenge was the first to be contested
since 2008, as the event had been in hiatus for three years.
In victory, Love III relied on the Bridgestone Golf
TOUR B330 golf ball and new J40 prototype
blade irons (3-PW). Bridgestone's TOUR B330 ball features the company's proprietary
Dual Dimple Technology cover for optimized aerodynamic performance. The cover's
smaller inner dimples increase thrust power at launch for greater distance while
the larger outer dimples promote a shallow angle of descent for increased roll out
on landing. The result of the improved performance at both takeoff and landing is
greater overall distance performance and a more consistent wind-cheating ball flight.
The B330 balls feature a street price of
$44.99 per dozen (MSRP $58.00 per dozen) and are available now at select golf courses
and golf specialty and sporting goods retailers nationwide.
