This year they came out with the Penta TP5, and rumor has it next year they will have "Jaws TP" .  Is it typical for them to release a new TP ball every year?

There is a new Project 5 ball in the works. Justin Rose played it at the Ryder Cup.

Their flagship urethane ball has generally been on a 2 year cycle. Here are the releases since the first TP's in 2006:
2006 TP Red/Black
2008 TP Red/Black LDP
2010 Penta TP
2012 Penta TP3/TP5
2013 Project 5/JAWS/whatever they end up calling it

Played the Project5 Yesterday and it is by far the longest TM ball I have ever played.
Similar feel to the original penta
Spins like the TP Red Original
Dimple pattern kinda like the New Penta.

Overall it was a great ball and really great in the wind.

VERY LONG !!!
Something Rare
Something JDM
