Bridgestone's Dynamic Duo Claims Top 2 Spots in Early FedEx Cup Standings
COVINGTON, GA — The PGA TOUR officially closed the books on the 2013
West Coast Swing with Bridgestone's Matt Kuchar
winning the 2013 WGC Accenture Match Play Championship this past week. With the
victory, Kuchar ascended to #2 in the current FedEx Cup standings, giving Bridgestone
Tour team members (Brandt Snedeker is #1) both
of the top 2 spots.
Having both played in 5 events this season, Kuchar
and Snedeker have combined for greater than
$4.8 million in earnings, and neither of Bridgestone's "one-two punch" have missed
a cut in 10 total events this year. In fact, Bridgestone's entire tour team has
amassed 14 made cuts out of 16 possible events started in the young season.
"We've been with Kuch and Sneds for a long time, since they were playing on the
Nationwide Tour, in fact," said Dan Murphy, Vice President of Marketing - Bridgestone
Golf, Inc. "To see them having the success they are is incredible. It sort of feels
like the Bridgestone brand has grown up with these two and I'm confident neither
the brand nor the guys are done growing. We are excited to see what lies ahead."
Both Snedeker and Kuchar
rely on the TOUR B330 family of golf balls
and J40 family of clubs. For
