(COVINGTON, GA) – Bridgestone Golf – Innovator and manufacturer of premium golf balls, clubs and accessories – officially releases its ultra-premium TourB Series of drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons, now available in limited quantities through select fitting partners around the United States.
Locations offering the high-end, Japanese-crafted clubs can be found through the company’s website at https://bridgestonegolf.com/en-us/where-to-buy/find-a-golf-retailer#/TourB. These Bridgestone Golf authorized fitters work closely with customers to determine the best clubhead / shaft combinations to ensure clubs are built to the exact specifications that will most benefit the user. A variety of the highest-quality components are incorporated into the fitting process, including exotic premium shafts from Mitsubishi Diamana, Fujikura, UST Mamiya and Aldila (estimated added value of more than $300).
“Our TourB Series was created for players who want the absolute highest quality materials and components in a package that looks amazing and delivers unmatched performance,” says Zack Kupperbusch, Golf Club Marketing. “Through our expert fitting locations, golfers will receive the highest attention to detail and can rest assured that their clubs properly match their game.”
Driver, fairway wood and hybrid innovations include:
- FAST Crown – through Flex Action Speed Technology, the crown flexes at impact creating incredible ball speed off the face
- Power Ribs – When paired with the FAST design, power ribs ensure the sole of the club remains stable, allowing the crown to flex even more at impact
- Power Milling Technology – Stabilizes the ball at impact to increase quality compression time
TourB Series drivers are offered in three unique models, the XD-3, XD-5 and XD-7, featuring a matte finish and adjustable hosel that allows eight face-angle / lie configurations. All come with interchangeable weights (2g, 4g, 6g, 8g, 10g, 12g) to dial-in preferred trajectory and shot shape. Designed with the compact shape preferred by better players, XD-F fairway woods are available in 15* and 18* lofts and the XD-H hybrids are available in 18*, 21* and 24* options.
Adding to Bridgestone Golf’s celebrated line of forged irons for low handicappers is the cavity-backed X-CB and traditional X-Blade. Both feature high-quality 1020 forging, 15 premium shaft options and minimal offset for a clean address and excellent workability. Additionally, the two have a forged mass strategically placed behind the impact zone for incredibly solid feel and response. The X-CB is engineered with a wider sole to prevent digging and encourage smooth turf interaction, while the X-Blade has a narrow sole, preferred by many Tour players, to help shape shots of all varieties.
Drivers will be priced at $699, while fairway woods and hybrids are listed at $399 and $249, respectively. Both the X-CB and X-Blade will be $1200 (4-PW).
Bridgestone’s professional staff features 14-time major championship winner Tiger Woods, FedExCup champion Brandt Snedeker, Olympics bronze medalist Matt Kuchar, Masters winner Fred Couples, three-time major champion Nick Price, Bryson DeChambeau, Hudson Swafford and LPGA Tour star Karrie Webb.
