Bryson DeChambeau Seizes First Leg of FedExCup Playoffs by Dominating The Northern Trust Using Bridgestone Golf’s TOUR B X Golf Ball

Victory Marks Back-to-Back Wins for Equipment Manufacturer

COVINGTON, GA – Bridgestone Golf ambassador Bryson DeChambeau again proved he is among the PGA TOUR’s elite by claiming the No.1 spot in FedExCup Standings following a commanding four-shot victory at the season’s first FedExCup Playoff event, The Northern Trust, yesterday at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey.

Relying on Bridgestone Golf’s TOUR B X ball, DeChambeau captured his third PGA TOUR win the past 13 months, joining a star-studded fraternity of only 10 golfers in history to hold that many TOUR titles before turning 25. Carding four rounds in the 60s, his lowest a 63 on Saturday, he led the field in greens-in-regulation and finished among the top five in driving distance, averaging nearly 300 yards.

“This was the first time I’ve had to hold onto a lead during the final round, but to be able to push forward and make a couple putts when I needed to was great,” said DeChambeau. “I have to thank Bridgestone Golf for being very instrumental in helping me get here and, if I can keep playing the way I am, I can do some great things.”

The TOUR B Series golf balls represent Bridgestone’s most technologically advanced models to date. During development, company engineers used data from more than three million in-person and online ball fittings, combined with insights from leading third-party industry sources, to identify needs of specific player types. They then drew on more than 800 golf ball patents to determine which proprietary technologies would most benefit each golfer persona identified.
