Leading ball-fitter Bridgestone Golf is launching a new extra-soft golf ball designed to appeal to the majority of golfers who possess a moderate swing speed compared with Tour players, yet seek more distance and better feel from a golf ball.
The Bridgestone Golf Extra Soft ball has a brand new 2-piece construction that combines an extra soft gradational core with an exceptionally soft ionomer cover to produce longer distance, superior feel and straighter flight on all shots.
The Extra Soft ball also provides golfers of varying skill levels with more consistent ball flight and accuracy from tee to green, thanks to the optimal aerodynamic performances of Bridgestone’s patented Seamless Cover Technology and Tour-proven 330 dimple design.
Steve Kettlewell, Managing Director of Bridgestone Golf UK, commented: “Bridgestone Golf continues to enhance the modern golf ball and the new Extra Soft ball gives more amateur golfers the opportunity to improve their game, simply by choosing a ball that is more of a match to their individual swing speed.”
Ball-fitting technician Joe Distefano added: “Many golfers don’t realise that the golf ball they’re using doesn’t match their swing speed and will inhibit the distance they can achieve. The new Extra Soft ball will help more of these golfers improve their distance on every shot, just like Matt Kuchar or Fred Couples can achieve with their respective Tour 330 ball versions.”The low compression provided by the new ball’s soft gradational core makes it easier for golfers with moderate swing speeds – at least 75% of those fitted by Bridgestone Golf average no more than 105 mph off the tee – to compress the ball fully and gain maximum distance; while the softness of the ionomer cover produces more spin and feel for outstanding greenside performance.
The new Extra Soft will be available at green grass outlets and other retailers from March at a RRP of £19.99 per dozen.
