DeChambeau and Bridgestone Come Up Aces in Vegas!

“The Golf Scientist” Relies on Bridgestone TOUR B X Ball in Dazzling Victory at Shriners Hospitals for Children Open

COVINGTON, GA – Bridgestone Golf Tour star Bryson DeChambeau opened his new season in much the same fashion he closed out the last, with a scintillating one-shot victory at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas. The win in the desert gives DeChambeau his fifth for his career (all with Bridgestone balls), and an astonishing three wins in his last five PGA TOUR starts.

Relying on Bridgestone Golf’s TOUR B X ball, the young star exhibited pinpoint iron play and impressive driving performance in his march to victory. In fact, DeChambeau ranked among the top 10 in driving accuracy, greens-in-regulation, birdies, eagles and strokes gained: total. The win moved him to No.5 in the Official World Golf Rankings propelling him to the highest ranking of his career to date.

DeChambeau switched to the TOUR B X in late 2017 after extensive experimentation revealed a significant impact on his driving, iron play, short game and putting.  He also wears Bridgestone’s new TOUR B FIT Glove featuring high-end Cabretta leather with FIT technology to ensure a soft feel, consistent grip and excellent durability.

The TOUR B Series golf balls represent Bridgestone’s most technologically advanced models to date. During development, company engineers used data from nearly 350,000 in-person 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 type of swing characteristics identified.
