5-Layer ball construction with zero compromises

As well as the new M family TaylorMade have announced the release of its 2017 golf ball line highlighted by the two new Tour models: TP5 and TP5x. Both golf balls incorporate 5-layer construction to actively improve or increase driver/iron distance, control and spin without sacrificing any greenside performance.

TaylorMade’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. The 5-layer construction leaves the golfer with a golf ball that has been optimised for any and every shot they may face.
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 superb wedge performance and greenside spin. This is achieved by a unique progressive construction manipulating the size, compression, and materials of each layer, which allows the decoupling of driver and iron speed from iron and wedge spin – a formula that can be directly attributed and only obtained through a 5-layer construction.

Choosing Between TP5 & TP5x
Both models feature the Tri-Fast core and a Dual-Spin cover give golfers more performance where it matters most – distance and wedge spin. Other characteristics can be more subjective, so they have given golfers two options to choose from. TP5x is slightly firmer and launches higher, and TP5 features a softer feel with mid launch.


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.

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.

TP5 and TP5x will be available at retail on March 1st at an RRP of €58 per dozen
