Bridgestone Golf has become a major player in the premium golf ball market, led by the incredible e6 golf ball series. To coincide with Memorial Day and to celebrate Bridgestone golf balls now being made in the USA, the company has released a version of the ball with a patriotic spin. (Like that pun? See what I did there? That’s because I’m funny. You’re welcome.)
The company announced in a press release that all of its premium golf ball manufacturing has moved from Japan to its North American headquarters in Covington, Ga. To celebrate, the Bridgestone Limited Edition USA e6 golf ball features a red, white and blue American flag decal on its side.
“Bridgestone is excited that all of our premium balls are now manufactured right here in the United States, particularly at a time when many traditionally-American golf brands have chosen to move their operations off-shore,” said Dan Murphy, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Bridgestone Golf, Inc.
“Like so many golf consumers, we truly value U.S. manufacturing and domestic job creation, and each of these e6s that are put into play will have been proudly produced right here in America.”
The Bridgestone e6 golf ball retails for $26.99 per dozen and is built for superior control around the green and straighter shots overall. The limited edition balls are now available in golf stores and on www.bridgestonegolf.com.
