Wow. For so many years I’ve equated Titleist and Davis Love III. But the news today is that DLIII has moved to Bridgestone. That switch will take some getting used to.
“Freddie (Fred Couples) and I go way back, we’ve played a lot of golf together and I consider him one of my best friends on TOUR. He’s been telling me for years about how great Bridgestone is, so I finally decided to look into them for myself and I liked what I found. I learned that they have industry-leading products and really creative marketing, two things that really peaked my interest. With the B330-S, I’m getting more distance out of my driver and long irons and I feel very ready to compete in 2011.”
So Davis and Freddy have talked about it. But I’m betting that Davis has been reading my reviews of the B330-RX series golf balls and that influenced him the most…
This week DLIII makes his 2011 debut at the Sony Open. He’ll be putting the B330-S in play for the first time. He’ll also be using a new Bridgestone tour bag, hat, glove as well as some Bridgestone prototype irons (3-PW). The release doesn’t mention driver, woods/hybrids, putter or wedges other than PW. I imagine those will switch over eventually when DLIII has had time to fine tune them.
