While the financial terms of the deal will remain undisclosed, the company is pleased to report the contract is for three-years.
"Over the years I have become familiar with Bridgestone Golf and their history of innovation in golf equipment through Nick Price, whose opinion I really value," said Howell III. "Nick has told me time and again about Bridgestone's unparalleled technological expertise and how they go to great lengths to make sure their TOUR players are in the equipment that best maximizes their ability. Nick thinks the world of them; after all, he won 2 majors with Bridgestone at his side. The fact that they are a Georgia-based company makes it all the more rewarding for me."
