Bring Tiger Woods Into Your Living Room With The New Bridgestone Golf Experience

Bridgestone Golf continues to innovate with new Augmented Reality web app

COVINGTON, Ga. – (August 2, 2022) – Bridgestone Golf, the #1 Ball-Fitter in Golf, announced today the introduction of the BRIDGESTONE GOLF EXPERIENCE, a way to bring Tiger Woods and other Bridgestone TOUR players directly into your living room, pro shop, or clubhouse. With the BRIDGESTONE GOLF EXPERIENCE, consumers can utilize an augmented reality web application on their smartphone to see and hear Bridgestone Tour Staff members talk about the TOUR B model they play and learn why it might be a good fit for them.

To launch the web app, players can visit bridgestonegolf.com or a retail location that carries Bridgestone products. Any Bridgestone TOUR B dozen box or sleeve can be used to initiate the BRIDGESTONE GOLF EXPERIENCE, and depending on which box or sleeve that is scanned, a different Bridgestone staff player will appear virtually and talk about the model they play on TOUR. The web app allows players to then scroll through all four TOUR B models and learn more about them. For the TOUR B X, you get Matt Kuchar, for the TOUR B XS, you get Tiger Woods, for the TOUR B RX, you get Lexi Thompson, and for the TOUR B RXS, you get Fred Couples. 

To get the full Bridgestone Golf Experience covering all four TOUR B golf balls takes about ten minutes and can be enjoyed on any smartphone. For more information or to download the web application please visit bridgestonegolf.com.
