For more than twenty-five years now, Tiger Woods has been a dominant name in professional golf. His fans can be found far and wide, and his move to Bridgestone Golf ball products after the end of Nike Golf’s run in the segment has been significant for the Georgia-based brand.
For 2022, fans of the 15-time major champion will once again be able to purchase a variation of the TOUR B XS golf ball that he plays, with a special “TIGER” side stamp.
The golf balls will be sold in a dozen package that depicts that 15th major victory by Tiger, taking place at the 2019 Masters.
The ball itself is a reformulated version with a new cover variation to further the spin and feel characteristics of previous iterations.
“I have been with Bridgestone a long time,” said Tiger, “But these last few years I have had a more active role in R&D. With the Bridgestone team, we have been able to perfect the recipe for the cover, yielding REACTIV iQ, which is an amazing engineering feat. For my game, the new TOUR B is more consistently in my window off the tee while also giving me more feel around the green. I’m excited that Bridgestone is making a signature version with my personal side stamp available to the public.”
“Tiger has been a great asset for us on the R&D side for many years, especially in regard to the new 2022 TOUR B series. It’s fitting that we offered his version of the ball to consumers,” added Elliot Mellow, Golf Ball Marketing Manager for Bridgestone Golf. “The TOUR B XS Tiger Woods Edition has the exact same performance and design as the XS that we introduced last month. The difference with the Tiger edition is the balls are all play number 1 and have the same TIGER stamp that the man himself uses in competition.”
The Bridgestone TOUR B XS Tiger Woods Edition will be available at retail on February 25th.
