Bridgestone Golf Tour Trio Top Money Lists

Bridgestone Golf has made it known that their Tour Team currently boasts three players ranked #1 on the Champions Tour, LPGA Tour and Nationwide Tour money lists, respectively.

Fred Couples has done so, relying on the Bridgestone Tour B330 golf ball which is optimized for  112+ MPH swing speeds, and J38 Dual Pocket Cavity Back irons.

In addition, Ai Miyazato, Bridgestone Golf worldwide tour team member, is the top money winner on the LPGA TOUR, having won 3 of the first 6 events of 2010. Miyazato trusts her game to a full bag of Bridgestone Tourstage equipment.

Rounding out Bridgestone’s “terrific trio” is Nationwide Tour rising star – Kevin Chappell. Through 9 events on the 2010 Nationwide Tour, Chappell has recorded 4 top 10’s including his first professional victory at the Fresh Express Classic.  Chappell’s equipment arsenal includes the Bridgestone Golf Tour B330-S golf ball, which is optimized for 103 – 115 MPH swing speeds, J38 driver, irons and wedges.

This is a nice little victory for Bridgestone Golf.  Titleist still rules the PGA Tour for the most part.  But 3 out of 4 isn’t bad!
