This is a press release

For the first time ever in the 57-year history of the PGA Merchandise Show, consumers will be able to experience what’s going on live in an exhibitor’s booth. Bridgestone Golf, the #1 ball-fitter in golf, will stream live video from its booth so consumer golf fans worldwide can participate directly in the excitement of the golf industry’s biggest tradeshow. The annual gathering of golf’s greatest product development and business minds in Orlando, FL, has served as the launching pad for some of the most famous product introductions in the history of the game, but until now consumers have only been able to enjoy the show through media coverage or information passed on to them from their PGA professionals who attended.

Beginning Thursday, January 27th at 8:30 a..m. and through the end of the show on Saturday, January 29th, Bridgestone Golf will provide an up-close look inside its booth at live ball-fittings, live Q&A sessions with professional golf stars Matt Kuchar and Paula Creamer and a live skype-poweredQ&A with recently named 2012 U.SRyder Cup Captain and the newest member of the Bridgestone Golf Tour Team – Davis Love III. Bridgestone Golf will also offer a complementing live social media feed on the live stream page. Golf fans can join the conversation by directing comments to #1BallFitter using their Twitter or Facebook accounts.

“The PGA Show is always one of golf’s biggest events every year, and until now the general public hasn’t had an opportunity to experience an unedited no-holds barred look at what goes on,” said Dan Murphy. “We hope that by providing this window into what’s happening all week at the Bridgestone booth, golf fans will experience something new and exciting that whets their appetites for the upcoming playing season.”

To access Bridgestone’s live stream beginning Thursday, January 27th at 8:30 a.m. and to see a schedule of celebrity appearances and other special events at the Bridgestone booth go to:

This is so cool, add another positive for B-stone. I love how they are so engaging in everything they do. And I guess I just get lost her eyes casue I never knew Ms. Creamer was a Bridgestone Staffer.

This is awesome and I will definitely be checking in on this one. What alot of people don't realize, is that Precept is a part of the Bridgestone family. I hope to one day take a tour of their Covington,Ga. plant :golf2:

But Precept is connected with Bridgestone. So if Bridgestone/Precept has an event she could be there. She was there last year at the show.
GolferGal, as usual, is right. Paula has been a guest at the Bridgestone booth each of the last 3 years. However, one point of clarification is that she is actually playing the B330-RX and won the 2010 U.S. Women's Open with that ball, so she's been a Bridgestone ball staffer for some time now. We still utilize Paula on Precept product packaging and so forth, but don't be surprised to see her in some Bridgestone ads this year too as we'll be more overt about her playing the TOUR B330-RX.

This is why I endorse the Precept balls in my signature. Great winter ball with soft feel and really good distance and the best part, it's in the Bridgestone family :thumb:
