TaylorMade Golf has announced the release of their new Tour Preferred and Tour Preferred X - two Tour-calibre golf balls that provide complete tee-to-green performance. Available in shops March.

After a decade of prototyping and testing with the world’s best players, Taylormade believes their new Tour Preferred is the best performing ball the company has released to date.

Key to the performance of the Tour Preferred and Tour Preferred X golf ball line is TaylorMade’s patented and proven technologies, including:

• REACT Core for greater ball speed on all shots for increased distance.
• Spin Mantle designed to deliver precise and consistent spin rates on given shots throughout the bag.
• Low-Drag Performance Aerodynamics (LDP) A 322-dimple pattern designed to minimise distance loss on low spin shots and also maintain a penetrating ball flight into the wind.

A new technology featured in the golf balls is Soft Tech, TaylorMade’s softest and most durable cover to date. Made of a cast urethane, the new cover provides an even softer feel around the greens than previous offerings. The Soft Tech cover will also provide higher resistance to shearing and will last longer.

What separates 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. The additional spin will also promote a higher trajectory on approach shots.

Since their introduction on Tour earlier this year, Tour players have quickly made the switch to both models including Sergio Garcia who has already won twice with the Tour Preferred X (Thailand Golf Championship in December and Qatar Masters in January). Emerging LPGA star Jessica Korda also played the Tour Preferred X in her season-opening win at the Pure Silk Classic.

RRP: £44.99 per dozen
