Taylor Made new "lethal" ball?

21 posts in this topic

Anyone had a chance to demo this new ball?  I heard Justin Rose talk about putting it in play this year; the name sounds gay, and I hope it's not too much of a departure from what I love about the TP5.

I haven't played it yet, but agree hope they didn't stray away from the successful receipe of the TP5. I've gamed the Penta for years. If this ball sucks, I'm not sure what I'd use?

They do still list the TP5 on their website.

I don't really care for the name "Lethal".  I'm a fan of good marketing and believe TM has one of the best marketing organizations in golf but imo they are getting very close to the edge of losing credibility.  Titleist has lead the industry for years with a model named Pro V1, which proves if you have a good product you don't need to give it a ridiculous name to get market share.   I like of the Penta TP5 a lot and will continue to game them as long as I can find them, hopefully by then TM changes the name again.

If you don't mind me asking, what part of TaylorMade Lethal sounds "gay" to you? And what does a "gay" golf ball sound like?

I love the TP5 and I'm looking forward to the lethal. The name doesn't matter but how it preforms

I'm tired of the marketing. Give it a normal name, give me some facts, and yes I will play it, my coach made it our school ball. I will just use those when the probability of losing a ball is high, if not,pro v1 or nxt tour s for me

Why would you pick an NXT over a ball that is twice the ball the NXT is?

Because I dont want a seam on my ball, and I always keep a tour yellow ball or two in my bag in case of an overcast day.

    • Because everyone gets bored of blue skies now and again! Crazy winds and serious mood-lighting! First hole has the signature lighthouse behind the green and a great linksy fairway, second is a 114 yard par three that played about 140 yesterday.  
    • A good afternoon of birthday practice yesterday. Did a lot of short game work and went out to the course way after the last tee time to put them in practice in 'real' situations. Finally I did a nice putting drill to gauge areas to focus on - this will be a bit of a regular thing that I go back to now and again to judge progress. A few photos from on-course work: Downwind - 15mph and dispersion from shots at 125 yards, 115, 100 and 75. Nearly pulled the wedge from 75 into a bunker, which would have been horrendous, so that's a bit worse than it looks. Delighted with the rest and all on the middle tier of a three tier green. After about 10 minutes of practising, from 50 yards using a variety of clubs (furthest to nearest) - putter, wedge, hybrid chip. Had to come up a big tier, so pretty pleased with this. Hybrid chip was the right play in that it took the tier out of play, but my default would have always been wedge. Just nice to add another shot to my game - although it will need more practice. Putting: Just need to make more inside 10 feet. Great not to have any 3 putts though! Hole Ft Break Score 1 Score 2 Score 3 Score 4 Score 5 1.         3ft Straight 1         2.         6ft R/L uphill 1         3.         9ft L/R downhill 2         4.         12ft R/L downhill 2         5.         15ft L/R 2         6.         4ft slight break downhill 1         7.         8ft R/L 2         8.         12ft L/R 2         9.         16ft L/R downhill 2         10.     20ft L/R uphill 2         11.     5ft slight break 2         12.     10ft L/R 2         13.     15ft R/L 2         14.     20ft Straightish 1         15.     25ft Double Break 2         16.     6ft R/L downhill 2         17.     33ft Slight uphill 2         18.     45ft Slight downhill 2         Total 32         Strokes Gained -2.81        
    • 26/2/17 - more slow takeaway work. Heading to the range later and will spend time really working on transitioning this work to full swing. I think the feel needs to be that my left arm is glued to my stomach, but will check with video later.
    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination.
