Nike to market real Tiger Woods ball

Sports giants Nike will make the golf ball exclusively used by Tiger Woods available to the public - six months after the threat of a lawsuit.

The American company admitted in August that the golf balls Woods plays are not the brand he endorses for the company.

The ball the world number one actually used had a slightly harder inner and outer core than the Tour Accuracy ball sold to the public.

Legal action was threatened when it was discovered that Tiger Woods wasn't using the ball he was promoting. Allsport.

But Nike is to introduce the Tour Accuracy TW, which will be available later this year.

And the company plans to let consumers decide which ball they prefer.

Nike will market a sleeve of balls with two each - the TW and the regular Tour Accuracy - and a dozen-ball set that has two sleeves of each ball.

No price has yet been released by Nike, though it is expected to be slightly higer than the regular Tour Accuracy ball.
