    Companies like this who do much better in other market segments have the luxury of throwing money at it or shutting it down. I hope they get re-focused. The landscape for good brands is lean to what it once was.

    I would like to see them get back into golf ball fitting in a big way again. They are known as "the #1 golf ball fitter", so it was disappointing to see them eliminate virtually their entire ball fitting program. Yes, they still have the app and the online fitting tool, but to me that can't take the place of the 26 teams that were on the road doing face-to-face fittings or the B-Fit online chat service where you could get specific information from an expert. I can understand that it had been close to 10 years since they started the Bridgestone Challenge, and maybe some of the novelty had worn off, but it can be re-vamped to include iron or wedge testing as well.
    In my bag:

    Bridgestone j40 445 w/ Graphite Design AD DJ-7
    Callaway Steelhead + 3 wood w/ RCH Pro Series 3.2
    Adams Idea Pro Tour Proto Hybrids 20* & 23* w/ Aldila VS Proto
    Bridgestone j33 CB Irons 5-PW w/ Original Rifle 5.5
    Bridgestone West Coast 52* w/ Rifle 5.5
    Bridgestone j40 56* & 60* w/ DG S-300
    Odyssey White Hot #9
    Bridgestone B330-RX

    We will be up there in a couple of weeks (August 20th) and have some fun stuff planned including a segment coming with Dan where we can ask anything we want. I think THPers will enjoy what comes of it or at least finds it interesting from a future stand point.

    It's going to be great to hear what comes from this. It's going to be really interesting seeing how they try to regain their footing after these last few years.
