Yang Switches to TaylorMade's 5-Piece Penta Ball
JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- At the 2009 PGA Championship, Sergio Garcia and Retief Goosen tried out the yet-to-be-released, five-piece TaylorMade Penta golf ball. Last week at the Wyndham Championship in Charlotte, Matt Bettencourt, James Driscoll, Justin Rose, Jay Williamson and Casey Wittenberg also started using the ball.
Now, according to TaylorMade representatives, Y.E. Yang, the man who walked away with the Wanamaker Trophy at Hazeltine, has put the Penta into play at the Barclays Championship. Yang had previously been using the TaylorMade TP Red LDP.
As we reported in early August, the Penta has been designed to optimize its performance in five key areas: with the driver, long-irons, middle irons, short irons and partial wedge shots. The ball will be available to the public starting December 1.
