Why We Love It

Bridgestone Tour B JGR driver

No golfer wants to see the ball go skidding helplessly off the face. Thankfully, Bridgestone figured out a way to add a power-milled texture to the surface in an effort to reduce slippage and sidespin. Throw in a boost wave crown that amplifies face flex and it’s easy to see why this is Kuch’s driver of choice.

Bridgestone Tour B JGR fairway wood

Having an accurate fairway wood is nice, but what if you could have one that combined control and distance? With a thinner rear portion in the crown, this club is a souped-up trampoline that can rocket the ball down range without sacrificing accuracy.

Bridgestone Tour B JGR hybrid

Hybrids like the Tour B JGR are supposed to make the game more fun for golfers who struggle with traditional long irons.A thin slit in the crown activates the entire face for more distance, while a variable thickness in the face ensures you don’t get severely penalized for mishits that catch the heel.

Why I Play It

“I’ll always take more distance, but I don’t want to sacrifice other things that are important to me, like the right launch window, spin rate and sound. This driver has it all. I’m seeing more distance and can work it on command, which is really nice. I’ve been really happy with the performance, especially when paired with Bridgestone’s Tour B X ball.” — PGA Tour pro Matt Kuchar
