Sned's finally upgraded from his old Taylormade driver last weekend in Hawaii -- played pretty good, too. Here's the lowdown on the new Bridgestone JGR he put into play... SNEDEKER PUTS NEW DRIVER INTO PLAYCovington, Ga. â€” Bridgestone Golf, the #1 ball-fitter in golf and a recognized industry innovator, announced today the launch of its new JGR Driver. The new Bridgestone JGR Driver utilizes revolutionary technologies to deliver longer distance and more forgiveness. â€œWe set out to make the JGR Driver our fastest and most forgiving ever,â€ said Josh Kinchen, Golf Clubs and Accessories Marketing Manager, Bridgestone Golf, Inc. â€œThe engineers really outdid themselves, as the JGR is not only incredibly forgiving, but also extremely fast and high launching. Combine that with the ability to optimize spin for players of all skill levels, and we expect that this driver will turn a lot of heads this year.â€ The increased distance and forgiveness that the JGR Driver provides is achieved through 3 proprietary technologies: 1. F.A.S.T Crown Â· The Flex Action Speed Technology (F.A.S.T.) crown is extremely thin near the clubface and progressively thickens towards the club head rear to enable the crown to slightly flex at impact creating higher launch and increased repulsion where players impact the face of the club most often, above center. 2. speeDARC Â· A pair of internal arc-shaped ridges provides increased sole rigidity and better stability for the F.A.ST. Crown to flex against, leading to higher launches and extreme ball velocities. 3. Power Milled Face Â· Bridgestone's patented face milling pattern works to reduce the golf ball slippage and increased spin problem that all competitor drivers today face. The newly improved design has been enhanced for the JGR Driver. Milling is spaced further apart at the top of the driver face to maintain spin, while the milling is tighter and rougher at the bottom of the driver face to decrease spin on mishits. In addition, a new vertical milling pattern is utilized on the heel and toe of the face to further stabilize the ball on mishits. The milling combines to reduce spin (300 RPMs based on robot testing) for straighter and longer drives. Further enhancing the spin control of the JGR driver is a dual zone adjustable weighting system. The Heel weight can be modified to create a more piercing trajectory with lower spin, increased roll and more draw for longer distance. While the Center weight can be altered to increase trajectory for maximum carry distance. The JGR Driver made its PGA TOUR debut in the hands of Brandt Snedeker at the 2016 Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Maui, where he immediately showcased improved accuracy and distance, on his way to a T3 finish. The JGR is available in 9.5, 10.5, and 12-degrees of loft. JGR comes standard with the new Aldilaâ„¢ NV 2KXV Orange driver shaft and custom yellow grip. Custom shaft and grip options are available. The JGR Driver will be available March 4, 2016, and has a street price of $299.

Pretty impressive early season run for Snedeker and Bridgestone... SNEDEKER AND BRIDGESTONE'S NEW B330 PROVE TO BE UNFLAPPABLE AT WIND-BLOWN AND WET FARMERS OPENSnedeker Trusts Full Bag of Bridgestone Equipment To Overcome the Elements in 8th Career PGA TOUR Win Covington, Ga. â€” This weekend at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, CA, Bridgestone Golf tour team member Brandt Snedeker authored one of the most remarkable final rounds in PGA TOUR history, overcoming tropical storm-like winds and rain to grab his 8th career PGA TOUR title. Starting the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open six shots off the lead, Snedeker put his new 2016 B330 golf ball and JGR Driver to the test, overpowering the inclement weather and a challenging course setup to record a 3-under par 69 â€“ not just the only round in the 60s, but also the only red number in the field during the final round. Making the win even more remarkable, Snedeker didn't play a shot in the event's rain-delayed finish, which was pushed to Monday, when weather conditions actually improved. â€œThis was like playing a U.S. Open course in British Open conditions, I've never experienced anything like it,â€ said Snedeker. â€œI put the new B330 and JGR driver in my bag this year and the results bare out. Since I've put them in play I've finished 3rd, 2nd and 1st. That's pretty unbelievable stuff. That shows you how good the new stuff is and how confident I feel in it.â€ Snedeker showcased impressive driving, iron play and clutch putting to tame el Nino's 40-50 mph wind gusts and torrential rains that battered the California coast. In his victory, Snedeker trusted Bridgestone's new TOUR B330 golf ball, JGR Driver, J15 CB irons (4-PW) and J15 Forged Wedges (52-degrees and 56-degrees). In his first three starts of 2016, Snedeker has finished 3rd, 2nd and 1st. With the victory, Snedeker earned $1.17 million and vaulted himself into 2nd place in the early 2016 FedEx Cup standings.

outta the strange files... Brandt Snedeker to Charles Barkley: Hit My Shot on 16th in Phoenix (http://www.golf.com/2015/01/27/brandt-snedeker-invites-charles-barkley-tee-storied-16th-phoenix) Marika Washchyshyn One of the most entertaining holes in golf just got more flashy - that is, if Charles Barkley accepts Brandt Snedeker's invitation to tee off for him at the 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale on Wednesday. Saw Charles Barkley is in Phoenix. I will let him hit my shot on 16 tomorrow if he is up for it.. Barkley, who has been known to...struggle with his golf swing, would definitely up the ante on the already famous hole's profile. Tiger Woods famously aced the hole in 1997, and will return for the first time since 2001 to try again. While the gallery erupted into cheers in that moment, the 16th hole crowd can also be unforgiving; in 1996, Justin Leonard was harangued with boos for giving the finger to the gallery after a missed shot. How will Barkley be received? Will he demo his one-handed or two-handed swing? Only one way to find out, so please, for all of us - accept Sned's offer!
