COVINGTON, GA – Bridgestone Golf, the #1 ball-fitter in golf and a recognized industry innovator, announced today the launch of its new JGR Fairway Metals and JGR Hybrids at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show. The new Bridgestone JGR Fairways and Hybrids rely on revolutionary technologies to deliver faster ball speeds, higher launch angles and more overall distance than ever before.
"The new JGR Fairways and Hybrids are without question Bridgestone's fastest fairways and hybrids ever", said Josh Kinchen, Golf Club Marketing Manager, Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "Both offer players an unbelievable amount of forgiveness on mishits and impressive distance off the tee or the turf."
The new JGR Fairways achieve their performance through three primary technologies:
The JGR Hybrids also rely on F.A.S.T. Crown and speeDARC technologies to produce faster ball speeds and higher launch for more distance from a variety of lies, but do not include the Power Milled face in order to increase spin for these green attacking clubs. Further enhancing the spin control capabilities of the JGR Fairways and Hybrids are adjustable 10-gram weighting systems in the clubs’ soleplates.
The JGR Fairway is available in 15, 18, and 21-degrees of loft. The JGR Hybrid is available in 19, 21, 23 and 25-degrees of loft. Both the JGR Fairways and Hybrids come standard with the new Aldila™ NV 2KXV Orange shaft and custom yellow grips. Custom shaft and grip options are available.
The JGR Fairway features a street price of $179 and the JGR Hybrid has a street price of $169. Both are available March 4, 2016.
