Spring, TX—On Thursday, February 6, Southern Texas PGA Junior Golf announced its news that Bridgestone Golf is now the official sponsor of the STPGA’s Prestige Tour. The Bridgestone Golf Prestige Tour, as it is to be known, offers some of the best and most competitive junior golf in Southern Texas.

Jeffrey Wessel, Southeast Texas Regional Manager of Bridgestone Golf is looking forward to the enormous potential Bridgestone and the STPGA can achieve. "[We are] excited to partner with the Southern Texas PGA Section as the title sponsor of the Prestige Tour and supporting sponsor of the Pro-Junior. Growing the game is a core initiative for the industry as a whole and we are delighted to play a role in developing the next generation of players.”

Recognized for its highly regarded products, Bridgestone is a mainstay in the world of golf merchandise and equipment. Founded in 1931 and producing golf balls since 1935, "Bridgestone has always been guided by the philosophy of [their] founder to ‘Serve Society with Superior Quality.’”

With the new partnership come new benefits. Every participant at a Bridgestone Golf Prestige Tour event will receive a six-pack of Bridgestone’s top-of-the-line B330 or B330-S golf balls. In addition, to continue its reign as the "#1 Ball Fitter in Golf” Bridgestone will also be attending a number of Prestige Tour events to conduct ball fitting demonstrations for all junior golfers in attendance. Dates will be announced in the coming month.

Now in its third year of existence, the newly branded Bridgestone Golf Prestige Tour will continue to provide the highest level of junior golf at some of Southern Texas’ finest golf facilities.

Director of Junior Golf, Thomas Hutton sees nothing but great things coming from the new relationship. "The STPGA is extremely excited to commence this partnership with one of the best companies in golf. It will allow us to continue the growth of our Prestige Tour and give more kids the opportunity to play competitive tournaments.”
