Tiger's Nike ball was a Bridgestone

Exactly my point to the comments in this thread saying why would Tiger play a retail ball.

Do you really think he would play a retail ball if Bridgestone could tweak a ball for him? He would be the a one of a kind that would turn down a better ball to play a retail ball.

That was related to the Nike vs Bridgestone conversation. Bridgestone designed him a ball which he played even after Nike had their ball division. So I was saying would he play a retail Nike ball if Bridgestone could design him a better ball. 

It’s been posted in this thread by mgs staff about Bridgestone showing them tigers ball on the tour truck and it bring the same as retail.

Based on the conforming list at the time, aside from the Tour Accuracy snafu, Tiger always played a retail Nike ball. Regardless of who manufactured it.

Many people have stated including guys on the tour truck that the BXS is the same on tour as it is retail.

Obviously you aren’t going to take anyone’s word or the examples shown. Tiger has always played a Bridgestone designed & manufactures ball after switching away from a titleist.

nike outsourced it’s designs to Bridgestone for retail balls which a large majority of the ball manufacturers do. 

Tiger, miura, titleist, mizuno and Tm wont admit that miura has made all of Tiger’s irons and some of not all of Rory’s but that is common knowledge around golf as well. 

It is just like TM will not admit Miura forged the famous 200 irons as well as the Lehman grinds. And it goes the other way some Miura dealers and fanboys will not admit Miura forged some Macgregor irons too back in the day notably the Pro 82s
