  1. I think it's because the perspective of the photo with the shadows makes it look like they're chipping from an elevation above than the surface of the green. In reality they were about level with the edge of the green, and then it sloped away from them towards the bunker from there. 


  2. I'm still surprised that the bunker shot ended up short of the hole. With how much the green ran away from that bunker I thought I'd still be 5 feet past the hole even though the ball landed in the rough before trickling onto the green. 


  3. That morning our birdie putt was on the green about 15 feet above the hole. It was a quick little slider to the left that I ended up missing, though we tapped in for par. The lie the blue team was chipping from really was quite severe, there was a dip between them and the green that was probably at least 6 feet deep and they were on the downslope created by it. 


  4. Thanks, I appreciate it. I don't remember if you mentioned this photo in that other thread, but when I was looking through the tagged photos you've been putting up I liked this one much better than the one I have right now where it shows mostly my back.


  5. That is actually really cool about the Japanese market. I never would've guessed a single company in golf could have their own entire store, especially a company that is perceived as "smaller" in the U.S. outside of the golf ball market (I know they make clubs, but I don't know what their line up looks like and I honestly couldn't tell you the last time I saw anyone besides Matt Kuchar playing them). Thanks for the response, it was more informative than I would have expected!

    My job was mostly answering consumer questions and education, so I really enjoyed it. 

    If you don't mind, I've got a couple questions should you know the answers and are allowed to spill the beans.

    • Do you know if they ever made "tour-only" versions of their golf balls as some rumors state?
    • What golf ball do you prefer?
    • Is there anything that most people would be a bit surprised to hear about Bridgestone products (whether it be golf balls or clubs or apparel)?

    I was an equipment tech with Bridgestone for almost 10 years.  They did some restructuring and my position was eliminated late last year.  Great company, great people.

    Sorry to hear that, but it sounds like that would have been an interesting job to hold. I always thought it would be cool to work for a golf company, but I'm not a huge fan of the materials engineering that it seems it would mostly entail.
