It's Forum Testing Season!!

 

We kicked it off last week with the Galway Rain Gear and we are moving right along with giving 10 testers the oppportunity to put the new Bridgestone e12 balls to the test.   

As you may have read or heard previously the e12 is a new ball to Bridgestone, it takes the place at the family table previously held by the e6, meaning priced at $29.99 retail.  However, while it has the same price as the previous version of e6 there is a lot more that has gone into this ball.

“With the benefit of 12 years of ball-fitting data, we have amassed an incredible body of data that has allowed our R&D engineers to pinpoint specifically what causes players to lose distance and accuracy in golf ball construction,” said Elliot Mellow, Golf Ball Marketing Manager, Bridgestone Golf.  “Contrary to the traditional school of thought in golf ball design, where power comes solely from the core, our new Active Acceleration Mantle actually allows us to derive additional power from the mantle layer to boost distance. We’ve created the ‘holy grail’ of distance performance golf balls - a 3-piece surlyn construction that minimizes sidespin to provide ultimate forgiveness, while delivering velocity needed to ensure maximum distance.”

 

So that sounds exciting, who doesn't want to  discover the Holy Grail.   So never one to keep such wonderful things under wraps.  We are going to provide 10 of our valued forum members a chance to try these out for themselves and report back their findings. 

These balls will be hitting retail shelves sometime in early to mid March so the chosen testers will be among the very first consumers to put them through the paces.  Your job as testers will be to test these from off the tee all the way though holing out that putt for birdie.....hey the season is young, we're full of optimism here!

With testing season upon us it makes me feel the golf season is so close but still so far off. We just got another 15 cm of snow... Looking forward to seeing how these perform. Love to see a good cost sensible golf ball!

      Hello,
      Has anyone tested the Bridgestone Tour B RX or RXS balls? I haven't found a topic on them.
      I recently found a Tour B RX ball and started chipping and putting with it. It was in perfect condition when I found it and after practicing with it, it was in much better condition than the Pro V1's that I also use for practice. I'm amazed with it's durability but I found the B RX to be a little hot off the face compared to the Pro V1 (softer vs firmer feel?). I played a round with it and compared it to my gamer (Srixon Q-star) and didn't see much difference but I also played like crap that day, so it's difficult to say. 
      What experience have you guys with it? Is it worth the buy?
      Thanks,
      JD

      A special Limited Edition release by Bridgestone:
      As the golf world gears up for the PGA Championship and Tiger tries to make it two-in-a-row at the Majors, Bridgestone is launching a LE special "Tiger Chasing Majors" commemorative package for its TOUR B XS balls this weekend.  We expect it to be widely available beginning on Monday, but some Southeast locations will have it on shelves as early as this weekend.  Same price as typical TOUR B XS ($44.99 per dozen) - just another opportunity for Tiger fans to grab a cool commemorative pack.

      As many of us know Bridgestone Golf has had an interesting last 24 months, they have practically disappeared from the equipment side of things, signed Tiger Woods as it's marquee ball endorser.   They have been all over with ball sales and promotions, and have left many to wonder exactly how well if at all they are doing financially.  Then there was the curious Premium Box Set offering announced a couple months ago.
       
      Well all of the above possibly or possibly not let to the dismissal of the  CEO Angel IIagan in late May.
       
      Bridgestone is bringing back the very highly respected Dan Murphy as the CEO and President. Read more about him and his background in the press release.  I think this is a great move and can't wait to see what it means for the brand. 
       
      I'm sure our very own John Barba and or Tony Covey will have a great blog piece about what this means in the short and long term. 
       
       
      Bridgestone Golf Names Dan Murphy President and CEO
      JUNE 18, 2018  
       
       
      (COVINGTON, GA) â€“ Bridgestone Golf â€“ innovator and manufacturer of premium golf balls, clubs and accessories – has appointed Dan Murphy as President and CEO.
      Murphy was with Bridgestone Golf USA from 2004 to 2015, most recently as Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing.  During that tenure, he helped the brand increase market share to No. 2 in the ball category, grew domestic revenue by roughly 250% and negotiated title rights to the PGA Tour's annual World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club (Ohio).
      As President and CEO, he is responsible for directing the company's core business functions, including product planning and production, marketing, sales and customer relations.
      “I've been with Bridgestone Golf since the beginning and the passion runs deep,” says Murphy.  “We make the most technologically-advanced golf balls in the world and my role is to help ensure Bridgestone is recognized as the industry's leading example of how science and data is used to make products that improve the performance of all golfers.”
      Committed to remaining on the forefront of innovation, Bridgestone draws from nearly 1,000 golf ball patents and the leading rubber experts in the world to design the industry's best golf balls.  A major differentiator over all other brands, it leverages the invaluable knowledge of 900-plus polymer engineers in the R&D process.  This engineering and manufacturing expertise is combined with real-world data collected from three million golf ball fittings over the past decade.  The result is a line-up of models perfectly customized for any player type, from PGA TOUR superstar to beginner.    
      Under Murphy, Bridgestone will continue to be the industry's leading voice on the importance of fitting and customization in the golf ball selection process.  The company currently offers two easy and comprehensive fitting options, the BFIT Golf Ball Fitting App and a new online fitting tool.  Its diverse ball portfolio includes the TOUR B Series, e6 SOFT, e6 SPEED, Extra Soft, Lady and more. 
      “Dan's leadership skills, product knowledge, industry connections and assemblage of talent are exemplary,” says Shigeru Nakayama, Senior Officer for Bridgestone Sports and Chairman of Bridgestone Golf.  â€œHe's unafraid to push the envelope to find ways to make golfers better and, therefore, lifetime Bridgestone loyalists.”
      Murphy is enthused by a recent NGF report showing growth of America's $89.1 billion annual golf economy.  Citing the 20 million committed golfers who play 95% of all rounds, he points to Bridgestone's influence making low handicappers even more competitive.  Furthermore, Murphy is keen on Bridgestone's ball and club technology turning the sport's 2.6 million newcomers into lifetime golfers.
      Since 2015, Murphy was President of textile manufacturer Kentwool and Vice President of American Achievement Corporation.  Before joining Bridgestone Golf almost 15 years ago, he held key marketing and business development positions at TaylorMade, Dunlop Slazenger, Maxfli and General Mills.
      The appointment of Murphy comes at an ideal time for Bridgestone Golf.  Rising star Bryson DeChambeau used the Tour B X ball to win the PGA Tour's Memorial Tournament two weeks ago and catapult to fourth on the official money list.  Additionally, the company's recent introduction of the TOUR B XS Tiger Woods Edition and the e6 SOFT Lady Edition (pearl white finish and pink Bridgestone logo) have proven widely popular. 
      Beyond golf balls, Murphy is committed to growing Bridgestone's share of the golf club market. The same industry leading fitting data that informs R&D for the company's renowned golf balls is being applied to the creation of revolutionary club designs. Currently, Bridgestone offers a variety of options via its JGR and TOUR B Series clubs, and will unveil new lines in the coming months.
