“The collaboration with LinksDAO is the perfect first step for Bridgestone Golf to support the leading Web3 platform in golf and its passionate members,” said Dan Murphy, President and CEO, Bridgestone Golf. “As the #1 ball-fitter in golf, it only makes sense that we bring our innovation in the sport to the #1 golf community in Web3.”
The integrated partnership will include custom ball-fitting content for members, including Discord discussions with Bridgestone pro staffers such as Matt Kuchar, golf ball discounts and giveaways, and Bridgestone Golf x LinksDAO branded golf balls available for purchase by NFT membership holders.
The partnership kicked off at LinksDAO’s NFT NYC event, where OTTO, Bridgestone Golf’s Proprietary Autonomous Ball Fitting Cart, was on-site for members to find the right ball for their game.
“We are thrilled to be working with Dan Murphy and his team across Bridgestone Golf’s line of world-class golf balls and bringing unique rewards and benefits to our LinksDAO members,” said LinksDAO’s CEO Jim Daily.
