Webb Relies On Bridgestone B330-RX in Winning 2013 ShopRite Classic
LPGA Legend Uses Bridgestone TOUR B330-RX Ball in 39th Career Victory
COVINGTON, GA — Bridgestone Tour team member and LPGA legend
Karrie Webb treated golf fans to one of the most heartwarming victories
on tour this year, outside Atlantic City, this weekend. Webb used grit and determination
in coming from 5-shots back to win the ShopRite Classic in honor of her grandmother
who is seriously ill back in Australia.
Webb utilized Bridgestone's patented seamless cover
technology to negotiate extremely windy conditions in carding a final round 68 to
win by two strokes. The win is Webb's first LPGA Tour victory in two years and the
39th of her illustrious career.
Webb relied on the
Bridgestone TOUR B330-RX golf ball
in her dramatic victory, giving the ball
victories in 2 of the last 3 weeks on the LPGA Tour.
"Between Jennifer Johnson and
Karrie Webb the B330-RX has had
a great last few weeks on the LPGA TOUR," said Dan Murphy, Executive Vice President
of Sales and Marketing - Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "We're excited to see Karrie enter
the winner's circle with the TOUR B330-RX, but first and foremost, our thoughts
are with her family at this time."
