Tiger Woods To Play New Bridgestone Tour B XS Golf Ball At Hero World Challenge

COVINGTON, GA – Bridgestone Golf – innovator of premium golf balls, clubs and accessories – announces brand ambassador Tiger Woods will compete using the company’s new TOUR B XS golf ball during the 2017 Hero World Challenge, taking place November 30 through December 3 at the Albany resort on New Providence island in The Bahamas.

Woods had previously played the Tour B330-S and made the switch following rigorous testing, during which it was determined the XS provided optimal distance, control and consistency. These gains are the result of a softer urethane cover, enhanced aerodynamics and improved 330 Dual Dimple design.

“I am more confident in the performance of the TOUR B XS than any other ball I have ever played,” says Tiger Woods. “It is incredibly long off the tee, while offering excellent feel and spin around the green. The consistency it provides gives me complete confidence that I can hit any shot the situation calls for.”

The TOUR B Series includes four models – X, XS, RX and RXS and represents Bridgestone’s most technologically advanced golf balls to date. Using data from more than 3 million in-person and online ball fittings, combined with insights from leading third-party industry sources, Bridgestone identified the needs of specific player types and drew on more than 1,000 golf ball patents to determine which of its proprietary technologies would most benefit each.
