Travelers Championship

TPC River Highlands


TaylorMade Tour Response

When it comes to finding speed, the core gets all the headlines, but lower-compression cores designed for normal golfers don’t always exude speed. That’s why this ball finds extra zip in a usually overlooked element—the highly resilient mantle that was taken from the company’s tour-proven TP5 balls. Distance also comes from the same aerodynamic dimple shape found in the tour balls. The flatterbottom dimple creates more lift to extend carry at the apex, when the average Joe’s ball moves as slowly as Joe Pro’s. Also, the aim-enhancing “Stripe” version clearly changes how you see things.
