Bridgestone it is...
After putting the Bridgestone into play at the Hero, Tiger and his people decided there would be no more free advertising, signing a multi-year deal with the brand. With the addition of Tiger, Bridgestone’s PGA Tour roster picked up 14 major championship wins and some much needed marketing pop to take on ball giant Titleist. Don’t forget, you can win a dozen Bridgestone’s by sharing the newsletter.

Life as an amateur just got a little better
The USGA made a big announcement about the Walker Cup, the biennial amateur event that pits the best Americans against the best of Great Britain & Ireland at a couple of primo sites. 2021’s matches will be hosted in Juno Beach, FL at the exclusive Donald Ross masterpiece Seminole, while the 2025 clash will be held at arguably the world’s greatest golf course, Alister Mackenzie’s Cypress Point Club. These sites are quite the haul and will make the world’s best amateurs think twice before turning professional.
