Af­ter the Masters, I looked at a lot of dif­fer­ent things with my equip­ment. I worked with the Tay­lorMade guys on the range and looked at the golf ball data on Track­man. When I re­viewed the num­bers, I thought to my­self, “Wow, this is what I need; this is ex­actly the thing that I’ve been strug­gling with.”

Over the course of the next few days, I tested dif­fer­ent com­bi­na­tions of clubs and balls and came to the con­clu­sion that switch­ing to the TP5x was the best way for­ward for me to im­prove, get back to World No.1 and win more tour­na­ments and ma­jors. The per­for­mance of the ball in the wind was the big thing. It was no­tice­able how sta­ble the TP5 ball was. My old Nike ball was re­ally sta­ble too, and that’s what I re­ally liked about it. With my pre­vi­ous ball, once the ve­loc­ity went out of the shot and it got hit with a side wind it would move, whereas you can hold the TP5 against the wind re­ally well. I tested quite a few balls and the TP5 is the best ball I’ve ever hit. I feel like it’s re­ally the best ball for me and my game go­ing for­wards.
