Tiger Woods won his fifth green jacket at Augusta National for his 15th major, 10 days back, not too long ago. Bridgestone, the manufacturer of the balls El Tigre! uses has announced special limited-edition box of a dozen Tour B XS balls featuring a commemorative cover photo of Tiger’s winning moment on the 18th green at Augusta National.
Just last week, Bridgestone Golf said that they were expecting to see their investment pay off in a big way in the coming weeks.
“We’re calculating the effect on sales and though it’s speculative at the moment I think a 30 percent increase in sales of the Tour B XS model he plays between now and Father’s Day is a reasonable estimate,” Bridgestone Golf president and CEO Dan Murphy s“There are a lot of people who will say, ‘I want to play Tiger’s ball.’”
Sports business reporter Darren Rovell tweeted on Monday that every single Bridgestone Tour B XS golf ball — the model Tiger plays — has been spoken for, and sold into stores.
The price? No different than the usual amount: $44.99, for the limited edition Bridgestone’s Tour B XS Golf Balls, commemorating the special moment of Tiger celebrating his win.
