Irishman cards ace after ball fitting

2014 02 David Donnelly Hole In One

Going for a gear fitting normally gives you a boost in confidence as you leave knowing you’re using the right clubs, for Irish golfer David Donnelly, a recent golf ball fitting proved even more successful.


Just one hour after being fitted for the new Bridgestone Golf B330-S ball at Ashbourne Golf Club in County Meath, the six-handicapper carded an ace on his way to his competition winning net score of six-under-par.

A crisp strike with his five-iron at the 162-yard fifth hole was all it took for his new B330-S to fly towards the flag and into the hole.

“I’m delighted with the hole-in-one and extremely glad I made the ball change prior to the competition,” said the 44-year-old. “This is the first time I’ve been measured for a golf ball that suits my game and it’s safe to say the new one made a big difference on the day!”

Bridgestone Golf - No.1 ball fitting company


Bridgestone Golf measured a total of 16 players for a new ball that day at Ashbourne, and the brand is recognised as the world’s No.1 ball fitting company with more than 250,000 fittings having already taken place around the globe.

‘Word spread like wildfire around the golf course and back to the clubhouse on David’s ace, so I guess you could say he was pleased,” said John Dwyer, Ashbourne’s PGA Professional.

“The Bridgestone Golf Ball Fitting Challenge really impressed me and our members, who could see the difference in performance between their regular ball and their prescribed ball. We’ll certainly be aiming to stage another ball fitting day in the future.”
