Snedeker, Kuchar test Bridgestone ball prototypes

Tuesday, October 8, 2013

Bridgestone staff players Brandt Snedeker and Matt Kuchar used prototype golf balls at the Presidents Cup.

The balls were not named, but sources at Bridgestone didn’t try to hide their identity. Snedeker played what will be introduced in 2014 as the new B330, and Kuchar played the new B330S.

Both are four-piece, urethane-covered golf balls.

What’s the difference between the two? The B330S has a slightly softer feel, while the B330 is somewhat firmer and marginally longer off the tee.
