Bryson DeChambeau Signs With Bridgestone To Play New Tour B330-S Golf Ball

When "The Golf Scientist," Bryson DeChambeau makes his professional debut on the PGA Tour on Thursday at the RBC Heritage, he'll be using the new 2016 Tour B330-S golf ball and outfitted with gloves from Bridgestone Golf. 

DeChambeau earned the silver cup as the low amateur at the 2016 Masters, and spent a considerable amount of time deciding which ball would help him compete at the highest level on Tour. 


"I take every part of my game seriously, and it was clear after a thorough review that Bridgestone Golf's Tour B330-S was the best fit for me," DeChambeau said.  "I'm excited to be a part of Bridgestone's team and benefit from the precision they put in to each and every ball made."

DeChambeau, who finished his amateur career as the highest ranked amateur according to the Official World Golf Rankings, won last year's NCAA Championship and U.S. Amateur Championship, becoming the fifth golfer in history to win both events in the same year. 

Before officially turning pro, the 22 year-old all-world amateur made the cut in seven of his eight pro starts since leaving Southern Methodist University. 


"Bryson is a dynamic player with an amazing scientific approach to his game and all the elements that contribute to it," said Corey Consuegra, Sr. Director of Marketing at Bridgestone Golf.  "In a short time as an amateur he's challenged many of the conventional wisdoms of the game, including safe golf ball choices.  [And] Bryson's demand on precision, quality, and performance will have him using the B330-S well into the future.”

DeChambeau majored in physics at SMU and calls himself  "The Golf Scientist," and brings a unique scientific approach to his golf game.  He has developed an unconventional approach to the game, such as adjusting each of his irons to the same shaft length (37 1/2 inches), and each clubhead to the proper loft, and is known to test his golf balls by soaking them in Epsom salts to determine their center of gravity. 


DeChambeau joins a host of other high-profile players who are teeing up a Bridgestone ball this season, including 2012 FedEx Cup champion Brandt Snedeker, 2012 Players Championship winner Matt Kuchar, 1992 Masters Champion Fred Couples, three-time Major Champion Nick Price, and LPGA Tour stars Stacy Lewis, Karrie Webb, and Paula Creamer.
