Rocco Breaks 3-Year Winless Drought After Switching To A Bridgestone Ball

COVINGTON, GA – Bridgestone Golf Tour team member, Rocco Mediate, returned to the PGA TOUR Champions winner’s circle for the first time in three years on Sunday, with a thrilling victory at the 2019 Sanford International. Mediate finished birdie-birdie to close out his best single round score of the year – a 64 – winning the event by 2 strokes. Mediate’s victory with Bridgestone’s TOUR B XS golf ball vaults him into top 25 of the current Charles Schwab Cup points standings.

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.

Mediate carded a 9-under total of 201 to win the 54-hole event in come-from-behind fashion. Earlier this season, Mediate made the switch to a Bridgestone golf ball after undergoing the first ever ball fitting session of his career.

“The ball fitting with Bridgestone really was an ‘aha’ moment for me,” said Mediate. “I never really considered how choosing the right golf ball could have a positive effect on all aspects of my game. These Bridgestone balls really work for me from tee through the green. This is the most excited I have been about my game in a long time.”

Majesty Golf Introduces Royale Family of Products

LA MIRADA, CA –  Majesty Golf, a golf equipment company staking the largest luxury segment golf club market share in Japan and Korea, today announced four new upscale products exquisitely designed for moderate swing speed golfers: The Royale Driver, Royale Forged Face Irons, Royale Fairways and Royale Hybrids. These new clubs will be available in the U.S. on October 1, 2019.

The Royale Driver represents the very best of our industry-leading lightweight technologies. The clubhead touts a refined Spider web face and a three-piece structure, using a highly rigid and lightweight honeycomb design that promotes higher ball speed across the face. Its ultra-lightweight shaft sports our double bias technology that utilizes two layers of high-elasticity carbon wrapped around the bias area, letting us minimize the torsion and slightly lengthen the shaft for more distance without sacrificing control.

Royale Forged Face Irons are geared for aspiring golfers seeking ultimate distance and control. These precision engineered irons feature a multi-material construction consisting of an ultra-thin forged maraging steel face, a repulsion groove and a tungsten alloy that positions the center of gravity (CG) 1mm lower than its predecessor.

Royale Fairway Woods incorporate a lightweight titanium crown and tungsten alloy sole, to promote a higher trajectory and more stability. Each wood has one of the deepest CG locations we’ve ever manufactured, helping shots get airborne with ease. With this exotic head construction, the CG deepens by 5mm and the moment of inertia (MOI) increases by 17%, resulting in extra distance and ultimate stability. Combining the driver’s refined Spider web structure with the exotic Dat55 G forged face promotes a larger sweet spot, yielding consistent distance across the face along with unprecedented feel.

Finally, Royale Hybrids also feature our Spider web design in conjunction with a high-grade TSP910 titanium face — making for an extremely thin hitting area and maximum repulsion across the face. Each clubhead also includes a high-density tungsten weight and high-strength maraging custom body that deepens CG by approximately 1mm while boosting MOI by 10%.

“These innovative, new products are in a class of their own,” said Adam Sheldon, President, North America, Majesty Golf Company. “We spared no expense in creating them. From the exotic materials to the jewelry quality finishing techniques and overall performance engineering, we built the ultimate product for moderate swing speed golfers.”

  1. I read a article which Rocco talked about him getting in shape and stopped drinking. He said he needed to be a better person and a better parent. I think that was better than changing a ball.
