Lexi And Bridgestone Are Big Winners in Atlantic City!

Lexi Thompson Wins 2019 ShopRite LPGA Classic in Dramatic Fashion with Bridgestone TOUR B X Ball

(COVINGTON, GA) – Bridgestone Golf Tour team member Lexi Thompson continued one of the best Tour seasons in Bridgestone Golf’s history, with a dramatic come-from-behind victory at the 2019 ShopRite LPGA Classic. Thompson finished with a clutch eagle on the 18th hole to garner her 11th career LPGA victory and the 6th win for Bridgestone this season, including 5 with the TOUR B X golf ball. Thompson’s victory vaults her to #1 on the U.S. Solheim Cup points list.

The TOUR B Series golf balls represent Bridgestone’s most technologically-advanced models to date. During development, company engineers used data from nearly 350,000 in-person ball fittings, combined with insights from leading third-party industry sources, to identify needs of specific player types. They then drew on more than 800 golf ball patents to determine which proprietary technologies would most benefit each type of swing characteristics identified.

Returning to the scene of her professional debut just 9 years ago, Lexi carded a 12-under total of 201 to win the 54-hole event by two shots. In testing the TOUR B X ball with the Bridgestone R&D team this past fall, Thompson optimized her fit and acquired an additional 5 yards off the tee with improved accuracy. In addition, Thompson’s approach shots benefitted from her adoption of the TOUR B X as well, seeing a more preferred penetrating ball flight, perfect for cutting through the strong breezes of the Bay Course at Seaview all week.

Angel Yin Launches Yin Golf Academy to Help Leave Her Mark on Women's Golf

After Angel Yin finished practicing in the sunny Southern California sunshine, some days she would go to her club guy’s small studio that had radars for extra work at night. She wished she had more of an indoor space to work with.

The time in his studio gave birth to her goal of opening a golf academy. While she was on the shores of Hawaii in April, an opportunity hulaed to Yin to own her own academy.

“I want to open up a place so people that are very busy and work all day, to have time and an opportunity to hit and hang out,” Yin told LPGA.com.

The 20-year-old was contacted by her business partner that her former coach, Lucy Davies, was looking to sell her academy in Westlake Village. Yin jumped at the chance.

“An opportunity where everything is setup, location right off the freeway, it’s not something you get every day.”

Yin and her team launched an initial opening of Yin Golf Academy in early May, with a hard launch on June 15th.

In the opening round of the 2019 RBC Canadian Open, Keegan Bradley leads by one shot after carding a 7-under 63 on Thursday.

Most Majors Won: Wins in Men's Professional Golf Events

Jack Nicklaus, considered by many to be past his prime in 1986, came from behind to win that year's Masters with a stirring back-nine charge. That was the Golden Bear's final major victory and the 18th of his remarkable career.

Tiger Woods has won the second most majors in men's professional golf history with 15. He snapped an 11-year drought to win the 2019 Masters Tournament — his fifth green jacket — to pull closer to the all-time majors record. 

The most recent new additions to the list of major champions are 2018 Masters champion Patrick Reed and 2018 Open Championship winner Francesco Molinari.

Here is the complete list of every professional golfer who has won a men's major.

Check out the top-10 all-time shots at the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide featuring Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickleson.


 

Best 2019 Father's Day Golf Gift Ideas

Father's Day will be here before you know it and what better gift to give dad than the gift of golf.

Of course, you can always go with the gift certificates for a few rounds to his favorite course or some practice time at the driving range. But if you're looking to make sure he's the cool dad on the course with all the latest golf gear and gadgets, we have some ideas that are sure to make you his favorite child.

SelfieGolf

For any of us that have tried to take some slow-mo video of ourselves at the driving range or on the course to try and figure out where we’re going wrong in our swing, you know it can be quite the hassle. It either involves getting a terrible angle of the swing or having to figure out a way to position your bag just right to get the shot you want. The folks at SelfieGolf have the perfect solution so you can easily record your swing from all angles and become a better golfer. Simply clip your phone in and attach it to an iron or alignment stick that you lean against your bag, range stand or anything that is nearby. We love this product and we know you will as well. 

Nike Men's Air Jordan ADG Golf Shoes

Air Jordan's were always just for the basketball court. But not in today's world of golf. Bring all of the style and swagger of His Airness to the course with these new spikeless Air Jordan's that are inspired by the famous Air Jordan 3's iconic pattern. They come in both black and white base colors so you can pair them with just about any golf pants both on and off the course. 

Wilson’s D7 irons

Looking for some irons that provide more distance, and maximum feel and precision (without breaking the bank)? Wilson has just the set for you. Their new D7 irons bring an incredibly clean look and the ball leaps off the clubface, especially in the longer irons where getting a little more distance is key. They truly do bring the look of a player’s iron with all the benefits of a game improvement club at a reasonable price. Especially in the longer irons, I was getting easily an extra 5-7 yards on my shots while trying these out compared to my current game-improvement set.
