Kuchar Finds His Fit With Bridgestone TOUR B X Ball In 8th Career Victory

Fan Favorite Matt Kuchar Relies on Bridgestone TOUR B X Ball and Full Arsenal of Bridgestone Clubs in his first victory in 4 years at 2018 Mayakoba Golf Classic

COVINGTON, GA – Bridgestone Golf Tour star Matt Kuchar kicked off his new season with a ‘working vacation’ he’ll remember forever. Having recently put Bridgestone’s lower spinning TOUR B X ball and new JGR Driver into play over the last two tournaments, Kuchar proved the combination to be a winning one, taking the title at the 2018 Mayakoba Golf Classic in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, by one shot. The win south of the border was Kuchar’s first since 2014 and the eighth of his career, vaulting him into 5th place in the early season FedEx Cup point standings.

Relying on Bridgestone Golf’s TOUR B X ball and a full bag of Bridgestone clubs, the fan favorite showcased tremendous accuracy off the tee and consistent precision on his approach shots enroute to victory. In fact, Kuchar tightened his dispersion off the tee with the JGR Driver and TOUR B X ball to rank among the top 10 in driving accuracy for the week.  In addition to straighter drives, Kuchar also gained an average of 7-yards off the tee over the last two tournaments in which he used this winning combination.  Beyond his enhanced tee shot performance, Kuchar also finished in the top 10 in greens-in-regulation and birdies for the week.  On the rare occasion when he didn’t hit a green in regulation, the TOUR B X provided all the greenside feel he needed, as Kuchar got up-and-down 80% of the time, finishing in the top 5 in the scrambling category as well.

The rundown of Bridgestone equipment used in Kuchar’s win in Mexico is as follows:

  • TOUR B X golf ball
  • TOUR B JGR 9.5-degree Driver
  • TOUR B XD-H 18-degree 2-Hybrid
  • J15 CB Irons (5-PW)
  • J40 52-degree Wedge

Mayakoba Golf Classic Champion Wins with Dynamic Gold 105

MEMPHIS, TN  –  The 2018 Mayakoba Golf Classic champion won with Dynamic Gold 105 S300 in the bag this past weekend in Mexico.

The longtime graphite iron shaft user switched to steel iron shafts with Dynamic Gold 105 S300 during the Northern Trust in late August. Four starts later, he has claimed his first PGA TOUR victory in four years.

Dynamic Gold 105 is a new shaft design that was introduced earlier this year. It is a tour-caliber shaft that is engineered to deliver similar feel and control as standard Dynamic Gold but in a lightweight design that is easier to swing. Dynamic Gold 105 is available in a classic chrome finish as well as a new onyx finish.
