altCOVINGTON, Georgia — Bridgestone Golf has used knowledge gained through extensive PGA TOUR testing and over 300,000 consumer in-person ball-fittings to perfect its Tour B330 family of balls. Bridgestone’s new 2016 Tour B330 and Tour B330S golf balls have been specifically engineered to produce longer drives and better spin around the green for players with swing speeds above 105 mph, using new proprietary TOUR Core and SlipRes Cover technologies.

Bridgestone’s 2016 B330 Family features Bridgestone’s new TOUR Core that is 6% larger and utilizes a steeper gradient in softness from the inner part of the core to the outer region, to generate faster ball speed and less spin off the driver than ever before. In fact, Bridgestone’s proprietary gradational compression technology in its core allows the company to accomplish in one layer what other ball makers accomplish in two or three layers, leading to a smoother energy transfer and more power.
