TaylorMade staff players Retief Goosen and Darren Clarke will both be using the TaylorMade TP golf balls in 2007. World number eight Goosen (pictured) will be using both the TP Red and TP Black while victorious Ryder Cup player Darren Clarke will be using the TP Red.

Commenting on the switch, Clarke said: ?To change golf balls having used one particular kind for my entire career was a significant decision for me but one I wouldn?t have done unless I was confident that it could help me improve my game and become a better player.?

Goosen said: ?Both the TaylorMade TP Red and TP Black golf balls are products that perform at the highest level. With each reacting differently and having contrasting launch characteristics it enables me to switch ball depending on the conditions of the course.?

Both the TaylorMade TP Red and TP Black are three-piece balls constructed of the same components and materials: NdV4 core, multi-blend ionomer mantle and ultra-thin thermoset urethane cover. Additionally, the TP Red and TP Black employ a new PDP (pentangular di-pyramid) dimple design.
