ORLANDO, Florida – Bridgestone Golf, the #1 Ball-Fitter in Golf today, has announced the new e6 ball will be the official ball of PopStroke. A partnership between TGR, Tiger Woods Ventures and PopStroke Entertainment Group, PopStroke is a family-oriented, hi-tech putting entertainment business.
Currently, there are two open locations: Port St. Lucie and Fort Myers in Florida, with two more locations, in Orlando and Palm Beach, planned for 2021 openings. PopStroke provides a combination of golf, technology and casual dining. Each new PopStroke location will feature putting courses designed by Tiger Woods’ TGR Design.
As the #1 Ball-Fitter, Bridgestone takes pride in matching golfers to the right ball. Accordingly, all PopStroke customers will play and then take home the new e6 ball, which features a lower compression core and exceptionally soft feel. Tiger himself fits into Bridgestone’s TOUR B XS model, which will be available for purchase at all PopStroke locations, including the new Florida locations and Scottsdale, Arizona.
“I’ve trusted Bridgestone to manufacture my golf ball for the better part of 20 years,” said Tiger. “I place an extremely high value on quality and consistency in my equipment so the new e6 is a natural choice for this venture.”

In regards to PopStroke’s potential to welcome new players into the game, Tiger adds, “Some of my happiest memories are spending time with my pops on the golf course having putting contests, and now I do the same with my kids. I look forward to others enjoying time with their families at PopStroke. This is a new way for individuals to experience the game of golf. It’s about bringing people together.”
