Bridgestone stages golf days

Bridgestone UK is staging a series of golf days at English courses this summer to give club members the chance to win Bridgestone Golf prizes and compete in a national tournament final later in the year. A total of six sponsored events are set to take place during May, June and July with around 1,200 players competing at selected golf clubs across the country. The events will offer golfers the chance to win Bridgestone products played by tour stars such as Matt Kuchar.

At each event, Bridgestone Golf will also offer 16 club members the chance to be fitted for the golf ball most suited to their game. The Bridgestone Ball Fitting Challenge, which last year fitted a record 3,600 golfers in the UK and Ireland, analyses swing speed, launch angle and spin rates to determine the ball that delivers the most distance and accuracy for each golfer.

The golf days and ball fittings will be staged at Walsall GC (17 May); Muswell Hill GC (23 May); Leighton Buzzard GC (15 June); Huntswood GC, Buckinghamshire (28 June); Ingon Manor CC, Stratford-upon-Avon (5 July); and Nott’s GC, Hollinwell (19 July).

Andy Dingley, Bridgestone’s north region communications manager commented, “These events are a great way to expand our involvement in golf beyond the annual Bridgestone Invitational in late July. The clubs we’ve chosen offer a great mix of parkland courses and we’re looking forward to seeing competitors at the national final later this year.”
