Tiger Woods will debut a new golf ball in competition when he tees up alongside his 12-year-old son Charlie Woods at this weekend's PNC Championship at Ritz-Carlton Golf Club.
Woods, who posted the news on his Instagram page today, will be using a new Bridgestone Tour B XS prototype golf ball when he tees up for the first time since his horror car crash back in late February.
This Saturday's first round of the 2021 PNC Championship will mark Woods' first competitve round of golf since he finished seventh alongside Charlie on debut in this father-son event 12 months ago.
"Looking forward to putting the new Bridgestone Golf prototype ball in play at the PNC Championship #comingsoon #newTOURB #TOURBProto," Woods captioned his post of the new ball.
Woods had previously been using the 2020 version of the Bridgestone TOUR B XS golf ball.
Tour B XS is a ball best suited for better players that seek improved feel along with added distance. The ball's softer urethane cover has a mid compression rating (75), providing a soft feel.
The 15-time major champion is expected to be using the same equipment that we last saw him use on Tour, but who knows, there may be a few changes so let's keep an eye on his bag.
Should he stick with what he had in the bag at the end of 2020, then he will be using the old TaylorMade SIM driver and fairway wood, a TaylorMade P790 UDI, TaylorMade P7TW irons, TaylorMade MG2 wedges and his famous Scotty Cameron Newport GSS putter.
