  1. Take 2 I tried to post this video several months ago but had some trouble, so hopefully y'all can see it this time. I believe it was made somewhere around 2010 or 2011, but to my knowledge was never released. It has some very good information, so anyone interested in golf ball fittings, or those who have questions about the process, will find it interesting. One of the main points in this video is the opinion that golf balls should not be tested from the green back to the tee...that when finding the ball best for your game you should fit it the way you play it...from the tee to the green. The "green-to-tee" method has been widely believed as the best way to do it for a long time, but this video explains the merits of tee-to-green. Keep in mind that because it's 8 or 9 years old some of the data is outdated, like the number of fittings Bridgestone has conducted for example. But otherwise it's a really well done piece. After watching it, I'd be interested to hear which way you think it's better to test balls...tee-to-green or green-to-tee, and if this video changed your mind or not. Enjoy!
  2. Bridgestone Golf Unveils Most Technologically Advanced Golf Balls to Date with TOUR B Series FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 21, 2017 (COVINGTON, GA) – Bridgestone Golf – innovator of premium golf balls, clubs and accessories – unveils TOUR B series golf balls, the most innovative and performance oriented offerings in company history, which will be available at retailers nationwide and on Bridgestonegolf.com beginning October 2. The new series includes four models – TOUR B X, XS, RX and RXS (each $44.99) – which replace the company’s storied B330 lines and provide unmatched feel, accuracy and distance over competitors. As with all Bridgestone models, the company utilized data from more than 3 million in-person and online ball fittings in the R&D process to determine how specific characteristics would benefit different players. In addition, they used white label surveys to gauge and fulfill exact needs of customers. TOUR B X and XS are designed for low handicap golfers looking for exceptional feel. Compared to the B330 and B330-S predecessors, the X and XS provide more spin and greenside control due to softer urethane cover formulation, while increased distance comes from enhanced aerodynamics and improved 330 Dual Dimple design. The X is for those players looking for more accuracy off the tee while the XS provides extra length. The RX and RXS are for mid-to-low handicappers, delivering explosive distance and optimized trajectory thanks to high repulsion construction and new 338 modified Dual Dimple design. The RX will help players hit more fairways while those looking for unmatched feel will gravitate toward the RXS. “Unlike other manufacturers, we don’t try to shoe-horn golfers into a ball that doesn’t fit their game,” says Adam Rehberg, Bridgestone Golf Ball Fitting. “Plain and simple, our goal is to help golfers find the ball that will lower their scores by maximizing performance from tee to green.” The TOUR B series is a result of Bridgestone’s continued commitment to remaining on the forefront of innovation. Bridgestone owns over 1,000 golf ball patents and has more than 900 polymer engineers worldwide drawing on the company’s rubber expertise to design the industry’s leading golf balls. “The secret to our success is in the data, as we rely on our database of millions of swings to understand how golfers of all skill levels are hitting the ball,” says Elliot Mellow, Bridgestone Golf Marketing Manager. “We then start to build out player personas based on trends and collaborate with third party golf industry data sources to further fine-tune each persona bucket. Once we have established exact needs of different players we determine which of our proprietary technologies can help them rise above the competition.” Each new TOUR B Series golf ball features the proven characteristics that have made Bridgestone Golf among the most respected names in the industry. The benefits of these features include: Accuracy – Gradational core provides optimal energy transfer to create low side-spin and high ball velocity for incredible distance and accuracy gains Consistency – Seamless cover design utilizes injection molding technology to stabilize ball flight on all shots Distance – Aerodynamically superior dimple profiles provide different player types with vastly enhanced length and control Feel – SlipRes cover technology increases friction by creating more stability between the ball and club for enhanced control with irons and wedges In addition to the new TOUR B series, Bridgestone Golf designs a diverse portfolio of golf balls to meet the needs of all player performance characteristics, including the e6 SOFT, e6 SPEED, Extra Soft and Lady. More information on the company’s ball, club and accessories offerings are available at bridgestonegolf.com. Bridgestone’s professional staff features 14-time major champion Tiger Woods, FedExCup champion Brandt Snedeker, Olympics bronze medalist Matt Kuchar, Masters winner Fred Couples, three-time major champion Nick Price, Bryson DeChambeau, Hudson Swafford and LPGA Tour stars Stacy Lewis, Paula Creamer and Karrie Webb.

  4. It's official. Numbers and details not available as of now. He'll be using the B330S. http://golfweek.com/2016/12/15/tiger-woods-signs-golf-ball-endorsement-deal-bridgestone/
  5. Bridgestone has a foursome of Tour B330 golf balls hitting the stores this month, a tour design flexed to cover a wide range of golfers. The 2016 Tour B330 series offers a 2 x 2 matrix of balls. For the 75% of golfers with less than 105 MPH clubhead speed, two models feature an Amatour core – outer region for speed and inner region for less spin – and a soft compression. Tour B330RX. Delivers added distance. Tour B330RXS. Delivers added spin. For golfers with 105 MPH or greater clubhead speed, two models feature a Tour core – outer region for speed and inner region for less spin, and a tour compression to maximize precision ball-striking by better players. Tour B330. Delivers added distance. Tour B330S. Delivers added spin. Bridgestone golf ball marketing coordinator Adam Rehberg previewed the 2016 versions for me at the PGA Merchandise show in Orlando, a few weeks prior to the B330 series launch. Innovative features of the series include: Amatour and Tour Cores. Single cores uses a core gradient technology. The core is softer in the center and firmer ias it approaches the outer cover. This increases ball speed and creates less spin off the driver., The Amatour is 28% softer than the average tour ball, allowing for lower compression. The Tour core is 6% larger than the average tour ball, producing similar effect. Seamless Cover Technology. Creates more consistent ball flight. Dual Dimple. Smaller inner dimple increases lift on launch, and the larger outer dimple creates a more shallow angle of descent to increase rollout. SlipRes Cover. This new covering helps in both durability and performance. In Bridgestone tests, the SlipRes balls were sandblasted, and have higher durability than competing balls. “The ball cover is softer but more durable It doesn’t scar as much and is sand abrasion resistant,” said Rehberg. The SlipRes has maximum allowable friction coefficient, increasing stability of flight. “It has lower spin for longer drives. And around the green, it sticks to the grooves for increased spin.” MSRP for a box of a dozen is: $39.99 for the B330RX and B330RXS; and $44.99 for the B330 and B330S.
