Brooke Henderson is making a switch.

The Canadian golfer will be joining TaylorMade in a multi-year deal that will see her playing the TP5x ball and wearing a Tour Preferred glove. Henderson tested the TaylorMade ball in the off-season and liked the way it performed.

“Right away, the TP5x performed at a high level,” Henderson said in a press release. “I gained yardage off the tee, which is huge for me, while I was still able to have the right amount of spin and great feel around the greens. I also notice that my iron shots were piercing through the windy conditions and holding the line very well. It was really eye-opening, and I am beyond excited to put the TP5x in play this season.”

With sister Brittany on the bag for a seventh year, Brooke has decided to play No. 7 on her TP5x.

In addition to the golf ball, Henderson will also wear TaylorMade’s premium glove offering, the Tour Preferred Glove constructed from premium materials for optimal comfort, fit and feel.

“We are extremely excited to welcome Brooke to the TaylorMade family,” said David Abeles, TaylorMade’s CEO.

“Brooke is undoubtedly an incredible representative of the game of golf, already with several historical accomplishments at her young age that have inspired fans of golf across the world. Her decision to come to TaylorMade and play our TP5x golf ball reinforces our commitment to putting the highest performing golf ball in the hands of the best players across men’s women’s tours.”

The rest of Henderson’s gear remains the same. She wears Skechers shoes and plays PING clubs.

She starts her season this week at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions in Orlando, Fla.
