TAYLORMADE | TP5 & TP5x BALLS

TaylorMade have introduced two new models of golf ball specifically designed to improve driver/iron distance, control and spin without sacrificing any industry-leading greenside performance.

The TaylorMade TP5 and TP5x models have an immediate advantage in the shape of five-layer ball construction (shown below).

Traditional golf balls have three or four layers and, as a result, are forced to settle for high wedge performance at the expense of distance or vice versa. TP5 and TP5x balls deliver both.

This is achieved by a unique progressive construction manipulating the size, compression and materials of each layer, allowing the separation of driver and iron speed from iron and wedge spin.

Other key features of the balls include a Tri-Fast Core, which consists of a very low compression inner core (TP5x = 25, TP5 = 16) and a progressively stiffer outer core and mantle.

The combination of these three layers work in conjunction to create lower spin and increased speed.

A Dual-Spin cover comprises an ultra-soft Cast Urethane cover coupled with a rigid TP inner cover. This system creates a condition ideal for greenside control.

Some of the best Tour players in the world helped in the creation of TP5 and TP5x, with world No.1 Jason Day giving a glowing endorsement of the ball by saying: “This makes my current ball feel outdated.”

How to choose between TP5 & TP5x

TP5 and TP5x offer complete tee-to-green performance thanks to TaylorMade’s patented five-layer construction. However, the TP5x is slightly firmer and launches higher, while the TP5 features a softer feel with mid-launch.
