Tiger's Equipment 3: the other ONE

I suppose there's no better time to write about Tiger's Equipment then after a British Open win several weeks back. But this week, he started the Buick Open 05 with a -1 and with the projected cut at -2, he was looking to make a move. on Friday, his second round began with a crawl in the first two holes but the pace picked up and he sprinted to a -11 finish, which put him in 2nd place, 1 stroke off leader Vijay. With back to back eagles... it's just not human. well, perhaps it's his balls. golf balls, that is... he uses Nike's Platinum ONE. they were specially designed for him and his playing style. It's a 3 cover, 4 layer ball. Supposedly allows a more variable and aggressive play, depending on the club used. the inner layer reduces driver spin, the middle increases mid iron spin control, and the outer layer increases feel and gives a higher trajectory. This is what Tiger uses, his balls have TIGER written on them and 1's only. then again, i'm sure he can use any old ball and still whoop.. but it's a good looking ball and at 54USD, they better be.

Other choices are the ONE black and ONE gold. The black is designed with a 2 cover, 3 layer system with a larger core. This design basically translates your driver power to the core and gives you more distance in the drives. it also has a high trajectory like Platinum (they have the same dimple pattern) and tigher in windier conditions. Meanwhile, the Gold is pretty much the same as the Platinum in the 3 cover, 4 layer design. the layers serve similar functions and also a good ball for all round play. The difference lies in the outer dimples, and the compressions. The Gold does not have the Progressive Density Core, like Black and Platinum, so it spins more on drives. The Platinum benefits from drivers with the larger heads and Gold is a more standard all round ball.

in the end, i think any ball will do, i just got to keep it on the fairway.
