DeChambeau Dominates in Dubai

Bridgestone Golf Tour star Bryson DeChambeau continued his and the brand’s winning ways with a convincing 7-shot victory at the PGA European Tour’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic this weekend. The win is DeChambeau’s first ever title abroad and the 7th professional victory of his career. DeChambeau’s victory in Dubai complements a run of 7 wins on the PGA TOUR and 1 on the LPGA Tour over the last 5 months for Bridgestone.

Using Bridgestone Golf’s TOUR B X balls, ‘the golf scientist’ blew away the field in Dubai with prodigious driving and pinpoint approach shots throughout the week, on his way to finishing a record 24-under par for the tournament.  Starting the final round with a 1-shot lead, DeChambeau once again proved he’s one of the best closers in the game – firing an 8-under par 64 that included 7 birdies and an eagle to finish with the largest margin of victory in the event’s history.

“We are excited for Bryson to get his first-ever professional international win this weekend and his 4thworldwide victory in the last 7 months,” said Dan Murphy, President & CEO of Bridgestone Golf. “What the Bridgestone brand is experiencing at the Tour level right now is almost surreal.  When you add this Tour success to the incredible reception our brand received this past week at the PGA Merchandise Show, 2019 is shaping up to be a special year for Bridgestone Golf.”

DeChambeau switched to the TOUR B X in late 2017 after extensive experimentation revealed a significant impact on his driving, iron play, short game and putting.  He also wears Bridgestone’s new TOUR B FIT Glove featuring high-end Cabretta leather with FIT technology to ensure a soft feel, consistent grip and excellent durability.

The TOUR B golf ball series is a result of Bridgestone’s continued commitment to providing premium tee-to-green performance to players of varying swing types. Bridgestone owns over 800 golf ball patents and fully leverages the company’s heritage of excellence in polymer science worldwide to design the industry’s most cutting-edge golf balls.

Abu Dhabi x World Ocean Summit 2019

Government of Abu Dhabi Announced as Host of World Ocean Summit 2019.

This year’s World Ocean Summit, held in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, has brought together over 500 leaders from the private sector, civil society and government to explore the development of a sustainable ocean economy through innovative financing and technologies as well as bold new efforts to implement the world’s sustainability commitments. It is the largest World Ocean Summit yet, and underscores The Economist Group’s doubling down on this topic, in no small part through announcing the launch of the World Ocean Initiative, an effort that will translate the momentum and focus of the World Ocean Summit into a year-round programme on the ocean that leverages the full capabilities of The Economist Group.

Carrying this momentum forward, The Economist Group is pleased to announce the Government of Abu Dhabi as the host of World Ocean Summit 2019. Abu Dhabi has a close relationship with the ocean, through its history as a centre for pearl diving, its resilient coral reefs and its mangroves sea grass meadows that provide valuable services in the face of climate change.

Bringing the World Ocean Summit to Abu Dhabi presents a unique opportunity to amplify the conversations on the sustainable development of the ocean in the Middle East and the wider region, and equally provides a platform for Abu Dhabi to share its innovative approaches to conservation, and developing a vibrant and sustainable ocean economy, with the rest of the world.

The challenges facing the ocean are global, and the World Ocean Summit 2019, which will be held March 5th-7th, will bring the bold discussions and diverse audiences that characterise the World Ocean Summit into a new part of the world, and host stimulating conversations on the topics of ocean financing, governance and innovation. A key priority for World Ocean Summit 2019 will be to foster greater cooperation and collaboration between different groups, and to serve as a bridge between the development of economic policies and protecting the marine environment. It intends to build a truly global community for the creation of a sustainable ocean economy. Through the World Ocean Initiative, The Economist Group will build a programme of work across these topics and themes throughout 2018 to ensure that we continue to play a role in fostering progress against the global community’s commitments on the ocean.
