CARLSBAD, Calif. - In a world of personalization, TaylorMade Golf now gives golfers the opportunity to customize their own TaylorMade TP Red and TP Black golf balls by emblazoning a two-digit number of their choosing, anything from 00 to 99. Called "My TP Ball," the program allows golfers to design their own golf balls in a new and individualized way.
Justin's TP Ball"Everyone has a favorite number and usually there's a personal story behind it," said Mike Ferris, vice president of TaylorMade's golf ball division. "My TP Ball allows golfers to connect with their number and make their golf ball an extension of themselves. For example, Justin Rose plays 99 because his wife's lucky number is 9 and he's hoping for twice the luck. We're inviting golfers to put their number on their ball and to share their story with us starting this fall on myTPball.com."
Golfers can create and view their own TaylorMade TP Red or TP Black balls by visiting myTPball.com. After selecting a ball and one of 110 possible two-digit number combinations, the golfer will preview what his or her ball will look like. Any number from 00 to 99 is possible. Single digits from 0 to 9 are OK, too.
When you decide on a number, fill out the online order form, print it and bring it to a participating retailer, who will place your order with TaylorMade. Manning TP Ball & BagYour balls will be shipped to you within seven days of TaylorMade's receipt of the order form. The minimum order of TaylorMade TP balls with personalized number is three dozen, and My TP balls can also be logoed at additional cost. VisitmyTPball.com for complete details.

Six TaylorMade Tour Staff professionals and six TaylorMade Club professionals competing will play TaylorMade TP balls with their favorite number, and will have their number embroidered prominently on the front of their staff bag.
