Bridgestone Golf, innovator and manufacturer of premium golf balls, clubs and accessories, unveiled the next generation of its popular JGR club lines, which is available now at select retailers, club fitters and online. The USA Headquarters is based in Covington, Georgia.
Designed to provide maximum performance for a variety of golfers, the TOUR B JGR collection consists of new models in the driver, fairway wood, hybrid and iron categories. The lines are already garnering attention from PGA TOUR superstars, as Bridgestone Golf staff players Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker replaced their former drivers with the TOUR B JGR model earlier this summer.
“After my switch to the new TOUR B JGR, I’ve seen an increase in distance and a more consistent ball flight,” says Matt. “The change was a no brainer.”
“I didn’t expect to make the switch so easity but when I compared the data on trackman, I was seeing three mph more ball speed and an extra six yards,” says Brandt, who went wire to wire to win the Wyndham Championship for the second time.
Beyond ringing endorsements from TOUR players, the JGR lines are equally capable of helping mid-to-high handicappers find their edge thanks to a plethora of innovative features. The driver, fairway wood and hybrid models were engineered with Bridgestone’s Power Mill Face Design, producing low spin and stabilizing the ball at impact to increase quality compression time. Additionally, Boost Wave Crown technology creates internal and external channels that allow the crown to flex at impact for a higher initial launch and ball speed.
Two new JGR iron sets are also packed with innovation. The HF2 line is a forged, game improvement cavity back set designed for mid handicappers. Constructed with an ultrathin face that promotes exceptional distance, the heads include a rubber polymer insert to enhance feel, reduce vibration, and ensure crisp sound at impact. For higher handicap players, Bridgestone offers HF1 irons, featuring a thick, hollow cavity design that provides easy launching distance in an extremely low COG forged head. Variable face thickness provides responsive feedback on hits across the face.
“Our JGR lines have built up a loyal following since the original launch in 2015. The new TOUR B JGR builds on that success by providing golfers with the combination of style and forgiveness,” says Zach Kupperbusch, Golf Club Marketing. “While our brand is commonly associated with the best golf balls in the world, JGR is an excellent example of how we’re bringing innovation to all corners of the industry.”
