    Bridgestone Fit Like a Pro Live Update Thread

    Earlier this year we held a contest where the winner received a trip to Covington, GA to visit Bridgestone HQ. During this trip they will learn about the products, go through a ball fitting and club fitting and then receive both the golf balls and clubs they are fit for.

    That takes place on Monday and this thread will serve as a live update or chronicle if you will, for the winner to bring all of the THP community along for the ride. You will be able to ask questions, get questions answered and anything you want to know about the company can be posted here for the lucky THPer to ask for you.



    As you can see by the video, there is a lot packed into the day and @Trmpt98 will be picked up in the morning at the airport. This should be a lot of fun, so if you have questions, ask away and this will be the thread used for all of the updates.

    During today's PGA coverage, the announcers mentioned Koepka uses one of the heaviest balls on the market (hope I heard that correctly). Anyway, is there a weight difference in the Bridgestone lineup? If yes, then how does this affect the fitting process? I assume heavier balls are for SS above 115 mph...or something like that.

    I would also enjoy learning more about the driver and iron products. Please share any factoid that come up during the day.

    Have fun and congrats again on your amazing day!

    1. I am not sure.
    2. Here is my current WITB
    Driver: BioCell 9.5* w/ Proforce V2 Tour 6F5
    Woods: ZF85 3W ​w/ATTAS 7s
    Irons: C200 (5-GW) w/ Tour 90 S
    Wedge: MD3 (52*/56*/60*)
    Putter: Sqaureback Select
    Ball: Z-Star / Tour B-RXS / TP5

    I am going into this fitting open minded and trusting the process of the fitter. I have looked all over their site the past months and if I was going to purchase a set from them I would probably go with the HF2 irons. I have had 2 "big box store" fittings in the past 11 years so I don't really know what to expect. As for fitting the ball the online fitting has me with the Tour B XS. I picked up a dozen Tour B RXS this Febraury before I got selected for this trip and have been playing those along with the Z Star that I've played the past 2 seasons. I have not played any Bridgestone Clubs previously.

    This is a big moment for Bridgestone, for me. I want to see them back with swagger and flat out bringing it.

    I think we will.

    Hits one of the heaviest balls, as in, he hits it solid as hell. I would think any sort of weight increase or decrease probably wouldn't be super legal per the USGA for wind and flight reasons.
