I saw this one coming for a while. I don’t normally write much about the “tour” anymore. There are so many millions of blogs and sites out there doing it. But I feel compelled to post about Tiger Woods switching to Bridgestone Golf balls. Obviously Tiger has read Hooked on Golf Blog and gathered how awesome the ball performs for my granny over the top dual chicken wing golf swing.
All due respect to Nike Golf, can you imagine how many more tournaments Tiger Woods would have won with the B330 or B330-S in the bag instead of the Nike ball? But now I wonder if it is too late. Time will tell.
It will be interesting to see where Rory McIlory and Tony Finau end up ball-wise too. A switch to the B330, or numerous other balls not the Nike ball could really help their consistency and performance.
The full Bridgestone Golf Press Release regarding Tiger Woods switching to their ball is here.
The real question is what clubs will he be swinging soon. NIke is basically out of the golf business except for apparel. So what will be in the bag?
He’s been seen swinging a TaylorMade driver, and there’s rumor that he’s trying to put together finances to buy TaylorMade.
Looks like Taylor Made is the choice for woods, Irons and wedges. I didn’t see what he is doing regarding his putter.
