Golf balls TaylorMade for the Tour

TaylorMade has launched the Tour Preferred and Tour Preferred X tour-calibre golf balls. Following a decade of prototyping and testing with the world’s best players, the company believes the new Tour Preferred is the best performing ball the company has released to date.

What distinguishes Tour Preferred and the Tour Preferred X from each other is spin. The Tour Preferred is designed for players who desire more spin in the mid-to-long iron shots. Tour Preferred X maintains the same spin and trajectory into the green as its predecessor Lethal, but promotes better green side control because of its new Soft Tech cover.

Dean Snell, vice president of golf ball R&D for TaylorMade said, “Golf ball innovation doesn’t just happen overnight. Rather, it is a series of ongoing conversations with our Tour players. These conversations have led to the introduction of breakthrough technologies including low drag aerodynamics for ultimate wind resistance, a five-layer construction for superior control throughout the club set and now our softest and most durable cover.”

Tour Preferred and Tour Preferred X will be available from March at an RRP of £44.99 per dozen.
