The question over what golf ball Tiger Woods uses is something many Golfers are interested in knowing. In this article we take a closer look at the partnership that has developed in order to create a ball exactly to Tiger’s specification – and even has his name stamped on it!
It’s well known that during Tiger’s days with Nike the ball itself was in fact made by Bridgestone, and simply branded with Nike’s iconic swoosh. However, since 2016 Tiger when his contract with Nike was up, he has exclusively used Bridgestone Golf balls and has worked closely with the team at Bridgestone to create the Tour B XS Tiger Woods Edition.
After coming back from injuries Tiger was adamant he wanted to work with a company that he knew and trusted, Bridgestone was it. Green side performance is vital for Tiger who has a preference to a very soft cover in order to hit the shots he wants. He particularly likes to hit the low spinner that stops rapidly. The Bridgestone Tour B XS delivers just that, without sacrificing distance and flight.

The Tour B XS Tiger Woods ball is unique in that is allows Golfers to play the exact ball that Tiger himself puts in play and that includes the ‘TIGER’ stamping on the ball and Tiger’s preference of always playing a number 1.
The ball itself is based on the Tour B XS and brings with it Bridgestone’s REACTIV cover technology. This cover caters towards more distance and increased levels of spin without sacrificing feel around the green. It’s suited towards Golfers with swing speeds of over 105mph which is no mean feat in itself.
