This is an odd question. I have tmade p770 irons. I was wondering if it is possible that my p770 irons would work better with a taylormade ball? I want to know if companies make their clubs based on their own balls.

Not a chance.
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

The only difference would be in your mind, but if you convince yourself that playing the same ball and club brand makes a difference and the ball you use is a fit for your swing, it might make you more confident. But as for real, measurable performance differences, no way.

No. Neither the ball nor the club would know the difference.

The only time the would matter is the need to match left handed clubs with left handed balls.

No but in the late 90's Top Flite marketed golf balls called the Club System C and Club System T golf balls. Allegedly the System C balls were designed for use with the Great Big Bertha driver and the System T were to be used with the TM Ti Bubble 2 driver. They flopped miserably.

I could see a spinny ball being paired with lower spin drivers or irons that may give the player a high spinning wedge ball without paying a price on the drives, irons or windy conditions.

Another option could be firm balls that are great for distance with heavy clubs like shorter length drivers or forged heads with light shafts.

I am sure a player could find a good blend of features on his own but it may be effective to present a program to a player than wait for the player to figure it out.
