Tiger Woods will compete this week with Bridgestone’s new Tour B XS golf ball at the 2017 Hero World Challenge, November 30 – December 3 at the Albany resort on New Providence island in The Bahamas.
Woods previously played the Tour B330-S and made the switch following testing, during which it was determined the XS provided optimal distance, control and consistency. Bridgestone says the Tour B XS offers 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.”
“Tiger is easily one of the most discerning players in the world and only makes equipment changes when he sees a true performance benefit,” says Angel Ilagan, Bridgestone Golf President and CEO. “Just like Tiger went through the fitting process to find the ball that best suits his game, we strongly encourage amateurs to get fit and identify the Bridgestone model that will help them optimize their own performance.”
The TOUR B Series is offered in four models: X, XS, RX and RXS, suggested retail price is $44.99.
