TaylorMade announce 2016 golf ball line-up

TaylorMade Golf Company, the second most played ball brand on the PGA TOUR with three Tour staff professionals currently in the top ten in the Official World Golf Ranking, has announced the release of its 2016 golf ball line-up.

The three models are: the new Tour Preferred X, Tour Preferred and Project (a). With these three models, TaylorMade’s new line-up provides exceptional feel, performance and spin around the greens. The line-up has had immediate success as the first staff professional to switch into new Tour Preferred X ball, Justin Rose, did so before his victory at the UBS Hong Kong Open.

“We developed forty three Tour Preferred X prototypes throughout our exhaustive pursuit to engineer a better golf ball and put them in the hands of our Tour players,” said Eric Loper, TaylorMade’s director of golf ball development. “They were unanimously drawn to the ball that produced more control around the greens, and that was the new Tour Preferred X. We’re excited by their initial reactions to its performance and look forward to their transition into the new models for the ’15-’16 PGA TOUR season.”

Both Tour Preferred and Tour Preferred X will be available at retail on 15 December 2015 at an RRP of £44.9  per dozen. For more information click here.
