Q & A
TaylorMade has enjoyed its share of success in the golf ball market for the last several years, but it believes that the new TP5 and TP5x golf balls will catapult the company to new heights within that space. Highlighting the performance of both new balls is a 5-layer construction that will give players maximum spin and control around the greens but reduced spin off the tee and on full iron shots for more distance. When it comes specifically to the TP5, players can also expect a much softer overall feel. It’s an 83-compression golf ball, and the soft feel is made possible by an extremely soft 16-compression core and a slightly thicker cover. The Tri-Fast Core, however, while soft, still delivers low spin rates and maximum energy transfer on full shots for explosive distance. The TP5 will also produce a slightly flatter trajectory than the TP5x.
