Bridgestone's Patriotic USA e6 Golf Balls

Posted at 10:05 AM by Michael Chwasky

All premium Bridgestone golf balls are now manufactured in the good 'ole USA and to celebrate the company has introduced a limited edition USA e6 ($26.99/dozen). Featuring the same sidespin busting design as the original e6, the USA model comes complete with red, white, and blue packaging as well as an American flag on each and every ball. 

“Bridgestone is excited that all of our premium balls are now manufactured right here in the United States, particularly at a time when many traditionally-American golf brands have chosen to move their operations off-shore,” said Dan Murphy, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Bridgestone Golf, Inc. “Like so many golf consumers, we truly value U.S. manufacturing and domestic job creation, and each of these e6s that are put into play will have been proudly produced right here in America.”

Bridgestone limited edition USA e6 golf balls are available May 15.

All logos are available on any golf ball model in the Bridgestone lineup (through Bridgestone's custom logo department), while a select number of teams are available in retail locations on the e6 model. 

“College football brings out passion in people like few other things, so we’re excited to offer golfers the ability to show that team pride on the golf course this fall,” said Corey Consuegra, Golf Ball Marketing Manager - Bridgestone Golf, Inc. “With more than 190 million college sports fans across the country, we believe our college offering will be a great addition to Bridgestone’s already successful collection of industry-leading golf products.”

David Feherty signs with Bridgestone Golf

Posted at 11:06 AM by David Dusek

In the next series of Bridgestone commercials, there is going to be a new face huddled around this barroom table alongside Lee Trevino, Fred Couples, Davis Love and Brandt Snedeker.

The company announced Tuesday that it has signed a two-year deal with David Feherty. The funnyman, 52, is a Golf Magazine columnist, CBS on-course analyst and star of an eponymous talk show on Golf Channel.

In addition to appearing in Bridgestone TV commercials, Bridgestone says that Feherty will appear in a series of Web videos that aim to "educate golfers on golf ball technology and the importance of choosing a golf ball suited to one’s swing characteristics."

It sounds like his sense of humor is already permeating the company. "Truthfully, Feherty wasn’t our first choice," Dan Murphy, Vice President of Marketing, said in a release. "But with Justin Timberlake already taken [he signed recently with Callaway] our options were pretty limited. I guess instead of bringing sexy back, we’ll have to settle for bringing funny back."

Bridgestone releases the spin-zapping J40 drivers

Posted at 9:15 PM by David Dusek

Depending on the player, spin can either be a blessing or a curse off the tee. For slow-swinging players, adding a little more spin can increase carry and overall distance. But for heavy-hitters, too much spin can balloon tee shots and cost serious yards.

Bridgestone prides itself on making spin-killing drivers for better players and the company is set to release two new offerings for fast-swingers.

The J40 445 (below) is made by fusing four pieces of titanium and repositioning the discretionary weight saved in the process to the perimeter of the head to increase the moment of inertia. Coupled with a face that is thicker in some areas and thinner in others to expand the sweet spot, the 445-cc head produces a mid- to high-launch with low spin for longer drives.

J40_445driver_600x600

The J40 430 (below) has a slightly smaller head but uses the same four-piece construction and face technology. While it's still forgiving on mis-hits, accomplished players should be able to maneuver the ball off the tee more effectively with the 430-cc head. The ball flight of the J430 is also lower than the J40 445's and it produces even less spin.

J40_430driver_600x600

"In the J40 445, we've made forgiveness the most important aspect of the driver design," says Corey Consuegra, Bridgestone Golf's club manager. "With the J40 430 we focused our efforts on workability and control. We now have high-launch, low-spin offerings for two very different types of players, both of whom value increased distance and consistency."

Look for the J40 445 in 9.5°, 10.5° and 12° lofts in pro shops starting in October. The J40 430 comes out in January, 2012, and will be offered in 8.5° and 9.5° heads. Both will come standard with a Project X graphite shaft and cost $399.
