The 2012 Bridgestone golf balls are off to an impressive start with Sneds picking up the win this week. While at the PGA Show, THP got a chance to speak with Corey from Bridgestone Golf about the new B330 line and what makes them stand out.

Great interview with Corey explaining not only the changes with the 330 series but also the characteristics of each ball in the line!

I am really excited to try the new 330-RX and see if I am able to pick up a little bit of driver distance with that reduced backspin while still maintaining the green side touch that I have come to appreciate with this ball.

Congrats again to Brandt - HUGE year ahead for Bridgestone Golf!

Great interview. I still love how Bridgestone continues to say "whether it's Bridgestone or another OEM, get fit for the right ball". I love that I've gone to Bridgestone balls and will continue to use them.

Fantastic interview! I love my B330-S, and if they managed to keep the greenside performance while adding more distance you can count me in! That seems like an amazing line of golf balls all the way through. Thanks for the coverage THP!

Great interview. I've been a fan of the Bridgestone since I took the ball fitting challenge two years ago at the PGA Show. Given that Sneds already has a win with the new ball, it gives their new line a nice little push. Can't wait to try these out when they hit the shelves.

It's been a few years since I did their ball test. It's probably time to redo it. Hope the RX fits me. It sounds inviting.

Can't wait to give these new balls a try. With a SS of 105 I am going to have to give the RX and the regualr B-330 to see which works for me.

The B330RX has been a great ball for me. I had no idea what I was leaving on the table distance wise when I was playing a Pro-V. I did the online fitting first and then went through a live fitting. The live fitting showed that I simply did not have the swing speed to fully compress the Pro-V and it was costing me some distance. I told the fitter my fear was not having enough spin around the green if I stopped using the Pro-V. He assured me that I would lose next to nothing there.

I played the B330RX all of last year, and I had to have gained around 15 yards on average, and even more at times off the tee with the ball over what I was using. Around the greens the B330RX spins just as much for me and proved to be a great ball there for me as well as off the tee. I'm really looking forward to the new version now.

Gosh Josh this ball is better than last years model! WOW that is hard to believe but yea, I figure Bridgestone is never satisfied and will always seek ways to produce world class equipment and golf balls. I can't wait to try these new puppies!

That was an amazing interview. He explained all the balls very well. Gotta go get fit again to see if I'm still playing the B330RX

I think Bridgestone staffers have a little advantage in the ball category at TMC 2.0

After watching that video I am now very interested in trying these out. I currently play the ProV1x and just went to the Bridgestone site and did the little online fitting and it said I would play the B330. Now I am intrigued...Just wish they had a live fitting coming this way. Would really be a cool thing to do. As I have never really been fitted for a ball before.
