New Tour Preferred golf balls from TaylorMade
by Carly Frost
February 07, 2014

TaylorMade has made big strides in the golf ball market over the last few years and with an ever-growing stable of Tour professionals to cater for it is no surprise that their latest golf ball release is tailored towards the better player.

The TaylorMade Tour Preferred and Tour Preferred X is the result of over a decade of Tour testing and conversations with the world's best 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 with every club in the bag and now TaylorMade's softest and most durable ever cover.

Key to the performance behind the Tour Preferred golf ball are the following technologies:

- 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. 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 that provides an even softer feel around the greens than previous TaylorMade 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 want more spin in the mid-to-long iron shots. The additional spin will also promote a higher trajectory on approach shots.

Tour Preferred X maintains the same spin and trajectory into the green as its predecessor Lethal. Unlike Lethal, Tour Preferred X promotes better green side control because of its new Soft Tech cover.

Emerging LPGA star Jessica Korda played the Tour Preferred X in her season-opening win at the Pure Silk Classic.

Both balls are priced at £44.99 a dozen. For more information, please visit .
