(COVINGTON, GA) – Bridgestone Golf Tour star Bryson DeChambeau continued his and the brand’s winning ways with a convincing 7-shot victory at the PGA European Tour’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic this weekend. The win is DeChambeau’s first ever title abroad and the 7th professional victory of his career. DeChambeau’s victory in Dubai complements a run of 7 wins on the PGA TOUR and 1 on the LPGA Tour over the last 5 months for Bridgestone.
Using Bridgestone Golf’s TOUR B X balls, ‘the golf scientist’ blew away the field in Dubai with prodigious driving and pinpoint approach shots throughout the week, on his way to finishing a record 24-under par for the tournament. Starting the final round with a 1-shot lead, DeChambeau once again proved he’s one of the best closers in the game – firing an 8-under par 64 that included 7 birdies and an eagle to finish with the largest margin of victory in the event’s history.
“We are excited for Bryson to get his first-ever professional international win this weekend and his 4th worldwide victory in the last 7 months,” said Dan Murphy, President & CEO of Bridgestone Golf. “What the Bridgestone brand is experiencing at the Tour level right now is almost surreal. When you add this Tour success to the incredible reception our brand received this past week at the PGA Merchandise Show, 2019 is shaping up to be a special year for Bridgestone Golf.”
DeChambeau switched to the TOUR B X in late 2017 after extensive experimentation revealed a significant impact on his driving, iron play, short game and putting. He also wears Bridgestone’s new TOUR B FIT Glove featuring high-end Cabretta leather with FIT technology to ensure a soft feel, consistent grip and excellent durability.
The TOUR B golf ball series is a result of Bridgestone’s continued commitment to providing premium tee-to-green performance to players of varying swing types. Bridgestone owns over 800 golf ball patents and fully leverages the company’s heritage of excellence in polymer science worldwide to design the industry’s most cutting-edge golf balls.
