Rory McIlroy using peach-themed TaylorMade golf balls

We may not be seeing blooming dogwoods or azaleas during the 2020 Masters, but Rory McIlroy is maintaining a traditional theme on his TaylorMade TP5 golf balls.

The four-time major winner, who is currently ranked fifth on the Official World Golf Ranking, will be looking to win his first Masters and complete the career grand slam this week. Instead of using a ball with a 1, 2, 3 or 4 on it, McIlroy uses a TaylorMade TP5 ball with a 22 on it because it symbolizes power, focus and persistence. This week, he will also use a ball that has an image of a peach on it.

The TP5 is a five-piece urethane-covered ball designed to give players more distance off the tee with increased spin and control around the greens. While a new TP5 could be on the way in early 2021, the current model features an updated fourth layer, which encases the Tri-Fast Core and is directly under the cover.

Made from a high-flex resin material to resist deforming at impact, it increases speed on wood and long-iron shots. At the same time, the urethane cover is easily grabbed by the groves in wedges and short irons to boost spin.
