Tiger Woods used a new golf ball to win the 2007 Target World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club Sunday. For the first time in competition, the game's No. 1 player used the new Nike ONE Platinum.
According to Nike, the improved One Platinum and One Black--both of which will be available to the public on Feb. 1, 2008--offer an innovative power-transfer technology. Essentially, the balls have a thick polymer located inside the mantle layer, which increases ball speed for more power.
You won't find any information about either ball at nikegolf.com, but both the One Platinum and One Black will list for $56 per dozen.
More information about the new Nike balls will be coming soon, but you can learn more about Titleist's new NXT Extreme and NXT Tour and TaylorMade's new TP Red, TP Black, TP Burner and Burner golf balls in these articles from GOLF Magazine. -- David Dusek
