The unique advantage for both TP5 and TP5x starts with proprietary 5-layer ball construction. In traditional golf balls with 3 or 4 layers, golfers are forced to settle for high wedge performance at the expense of distance, or more driver/iron distance at the expense of losing control and feel around the greens. TP5 and TP5x feature varying 5-layer constructions, whereby each ball maximises driver and iron distance while also delivering best in class wedge performance and greenside spin. Features TRI-FAST CORE The Tri-Fast Core 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 velocity. This gradient is what makes the Tri-Fast Core so unique, as it builds up speed in transferring energy from the club face to the ball and delivers incredible distance on full shots. DUAL-SPIN COVER The Dual-Spin cover boasts an ultra-soft Cast Urethane cover and a rigid TP inner cover. This system creates a condition that is ideal for greenside control as the rigid inner cover forces the soft urethane cover into wedge grooves for maximum spin generation. The result is a multi-layer cover that is designed for extreme distance without sacrificing feel or control around the green. TEE-TO-GREEN PERFORMANCE TaylorMade engineers have found that the golf ball category, in its current state, is largely built on compromises. The team’s goal from the outset with TP5 and TP5x was to create a product that was longer, straighter, better into the wind, and responsive around the green. 5-layer construction allows us to unlock these characteristics, leaving the golfer with a golf ball that has been optimised for any and every shot they may face—a ball that has been meticulously engineered to perform with every club in their bag.

CHOOSING BETWEEN TP5 & TP5X TP5 and TP5x offer complete tee-to-green performance thanks to TaylorMade’s patented 5-layer construction. The Tri-Fast core and Dual- Spin cover give golfers more performance where it matters most—distance and wedge spin. Other characteristics can be more subjective, so we have given golfers two options to choose from. TP5x is slightly firmer and launches higher, and TP5 features a softer feel with mid launch.
