Choosing the right golf ball for your game can make a dramatic
difference in your performance on the golf course. Cleveland
Metroparks invites golfers to take their game to the next level by
taking the Bridgestone Golf Ball Fitting Challenge.
The Bridgestone Golf Ball Fitting Challenge takes place
Thursday, May 10 from 2 to 7 p.m. at Washington Golf Course in
Newburgh Hts. The event features the Bridgestone Ball Fitting van
staffed with Bridgestone-trained technicians using state-of-the-art
launch monitor/simulator technology. The service is free, but
appointments are recommended. Walk-ups will be taken around
previously scheduled appointments.
As with club fitting, ball fitting can guide golfers to a golf
ball that maximizes their performance from tee to green through
optimizing ball speed, launch angle and spin rates. Using the
Science Eye, a sophisticated computer system, allows the technician
to enhance performance in a complimentary session. Switching to a
Bridgestone ball may increase distance and performance.
How does it actually work and what is required of the
For the golfer, it's easy! With a driver, the golfer hits a
series of shots with the current golf ball of choice. Then, the
high-speed cameras in the Science Eye Launch Monitor system will
capture multiple measurements and use that data to calculate
specific launch characteristics. Based on the ball flight
characteristics, the technician will either confirm that the golfer
is currently playing the best ball or recommend a
Bridgestone/Precept ball that better suits their game.
After hitting a series of shots with the recommended ball, the
golfer is given a side-by-side comparison of all data, which
includes launch angle, spin rates, and distance with each ball. By
comparing the side-by-side results, the golfer is able to determine
which ball can best maximize performance.
Washington Golf Course is located at 3841 Washington Park Blvd.
in Washington Reservation in Newburgh Hts. - off the I-77/Fleet
Ave. or I-77/Harvard Ave. exits.
