SkyGolf partners with Bridgestone Golf for golf ball promotion

RIDGELAND, Miss. -- SkyGolf, maker of SkyCaddie the #1 rated and most trusted Rangefinder in Golf, announced it will give a dozen FREE golf balls to its SkyCaddie Members to experience the tour performance and distance of the new Bridgestone golf balls.

SkyGolf enjoys one of the largest and fastest growing online communities of golf enthusiasts and discerning consumers in the game. Premium brands such as Bridgestone see our membership as the trendsetters and influencers they seek to use their products. This joint promotion creates the perfect WIN-WIN-WIN for SkyCaddie, Bridgestone, and most importantly for our membership. We get to bring a great value to our members, Bridgestone gets key influencers using their brand, and our members get to try a great ball while offsetting most, if not all of the cost of membership that provides the most accurate and reliable course information in the game.

SkyCaddie Members with a qualifying membership are eligible to receive their choice of a free dozen Bridgestone e6 or TOUR B330-RX golf balls (a $30.00 - $45.00 value). The e6 is designed to reduce spin for straighter distance while the TOUR B330-RX is a premium golf ball specifically designed to deliver tour performance and maximum distance for the typical consumer golfer.

"The opportunity to partner with Sky Caddie is only fitting as we both deliver premium, high performance products for the end user. Even more important is that both Sky Caddie and Bridgestone take into account the needs of golfers when developing products. For Bridgestone Golf, it is about creating the best fit golf ball and for Sky Caddie, it is about providing the most accurate course information with no compromises or shortcuts when it comes to distance. At the end of the day, we both want golfers to play better today than they did yesterday," stated Corey Consuegra, Director of Marketing- Golf Balls. Bridgestone Golf, Inc.

The e6 is the softest multilayer golf ball on the market, designed to reduce spin for straighter distance. The new larger Dual Dimple provides reduced drag for higher speeds and increased lift, while the softer Surlyn cover and low compression core make for the softest e6 yet!

The new TOUR B330-RX features Hydro Core Technology, designed to reduce spin for longer distance. Combined with Bridgestone's patented 330 Dual Dimple Urethane cover, the B330-RX will provide tour level performance and distance for players who swing below 105 mph.

SkyGolf Memberships pay for themselves several times over both on and off the course. Members receive unlimited access to over 35,000 TrueGround Courses, mapped from the ground with professional, survey-grade equipment. While only SkyCaddie makes this extra effort at a cost of millions of dollars each year, it is considered absolutely necessary to eliminate known errors contained in other map libraries. Also, only SkyGolf Mappers return to thousands of golf courses every year to update course maps and check for changes. While this extra effort on the consumers' behalf is very costly, the cost is spread among the large membership so the confidence and trust of having accurate and reliable distance information is only about the cost of a dozen golf balls per year per member. And now, with the new partnership with Bridgestone, the small investment of a dozen golf balls per year to play with confidence is returned to our members.

SkyGolf Memberships also provide many other benefits like SkyGolf's online community (a $9.95/year value!). All scorecards, performance stats, favorite course maps and records of achievement are securely stored within a personal data locker accessible from any computer via the new FREE SkyGolf Mobile app. Members also save several times their investment through exclusive SkyGolf partner offers such as those offered by Bridgestone Golf and other premium golf brands.

Only SkyCaddie rangefinders powered by the most reliable maps in the game pay dividends both on and off the course. Visit to see how you can play better and with more confidence while saving money too!
