COVINGTON, GA — Bridgestone Golf, the #1 ball-fitter in golf, announced today that it would collaborate with luxury golf apparel brand Peter Millar for a summer promotion that will allow consumers the opportunity to be like 2012 FedEx Cup Champion Brandt Snedeker.
Beginning June 1, with the purchase of 3-dozen of any TOUR B330 family golf balls, consumers will receive a "Snedeker Summer Golf Shirt" in Royal Blue or White - a $99 retail value. The promotion will be available at supporting retailers through July 31, 2013.
After a thrilling run in the FedEx Cup to cap off his career 2012 season, and an early win at Pebble Beach in 2013 that vaulted him to the top of the early season FedEx Cup standings, Snedeker has quickly become a fan favorite in the world of golf. Through this innovative new alliance, Bridgestone not only gives golfers the chance to play the same B330 family golf balls that the World #5 relies on each week; through this promotion golfers can also sport the same stylish, luxurious performance golf shirts that Snedeker enjoys during TOUR competition.
"Bridgestone and Peter Millar are two premium, relatively young brands that have risen quickly in the world of golf, and we're both honored to be represented on TOUR by Brandt," said Dan Murphy, Executive Vice President of Sales/Marketing - Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "We're excited about this promotion as it allows us to pay homage to Brandt's success by providing consumers with a unique opportunity to be like their favorite player on and off the course."
