New Prototype Bridgestone Balls – Just add…..water?

PGA show week so stay tuned for more sneak peaks 🙂


At last fall’s
Cup, Brandt
and Matt Kuchar each put a prototype
Bridgestone B330 ball in play. Details were
scarce at the time, but now we know what
the secret ingredient was: water. That’s
right, H²O. In each of the company’s four
new offerings (Tour B330, Tour B330S,
Tour B330RX and Tour B330RXS—all
$45 a dozen), water was added during
formulation to enhance the gradation of
the core. That is, it’s softer near the center
and as much as 30 percent firmer on the
outer regions to reduce spin off the driver.
The B330 and B330S are four-piece construction,
and the B330RX and B330BRXS
are three-piece. Each has a urethane cover
and what the company calls a “Hydro
Core.” —E. Michael Johnson

About Andrew Hodson

I am the youngest with in a golfing family which has spanned three generations. My grandfather started the tradition in England (Bert Hodson-1931 Ryder Cup Team) and has since passed on his knowledge and love of the game. Although I did not follow in the steps of my father and grandfather on a professional golfing level, my love of the game and commitment to accurately fit equipment has only grown. Even as a kid I enjoyed re-gripping clubs which eventually led to refinishing wood heads, re-shafting, and now has culminated in more detailed custom club fitting, building, and repair.
