Bridgestone's Tour Team headwear line is expanding, after the company announced that the Matt Kuchar Collection, which debuted in January with six custom signature-colored versions of Bridgestone’s popular contrast-stitch cap that Kuchar currently wears, would be growing with the addition of six new colors — Mocha, Bahama, Orange, Surf, Rose and Sour Apple.
Along with the expansion of the Kuchar Collection, Bridgestone staffers Brandt Snedeker and Fred Couples will also be getting their own headwear lines.
The Snedeker Collection will feature the 6-time PGA TOUR winner's signature high-crown visor in six colors — Yellow, Blue, Green, Navy, White and Black.
The Couples Collection is constructed of unstructured-chino twill, and will be available in four colors — White, Black, Stone and Navy.
“Thanks to a lot of success on the golf course, our three big names on Tour—Kuch, Sneds and Freddy—have really created personas both on the course and with fans," Josh Kinchen, Bridgestone’s Golf Club and Accessories Marketing Manager. "Whether it is Kuchar’s bright colors, Snedeker’s visors or just Couples’ laid-back-look, we want to give our ‘brand loyalists’ the chance to emulate their favorite Bridgestone players, and the Tour Team line now affords that opportunity.”
All three signature hat lines will be available in October and will range in price from $20-24.
