Typ­i­cally, chang­ing golf balls is a long process for PGA TOUR pros, but the TP5X has proven to be the ex­cep­tion with many play­ers quickly adding the ball to their ar­se­nals. Tay­lor­made's VP of Tour Op­er­a­tions, Keith Sbar­baro, spoke about the rapid adop­tion of the TP5X on tour, “The dis­per­sion is just so tight and con­trolled. Al­most ev­ery player who has tested the ball is hit­ting it higher, spin­ning it less, and land­ing it softer. This ball is the real deal, new guys are switch­ing ev­ery week be­cause it's that good.”

The unique ad­van­tage starts with a 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. With a 5-layer con­struc­tion, the TP5X max­i­mizes driver and iron dis­tance while also de­liv­er­ing best in class 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. Leav­ing the golfer with a golf ball that has been op­ti­mized for any and ev­ery shot they may face, a golf ball that has been metic­u­lously en­gi­neered to per­form with ev­ery club in their bag, for true tee-to-green per­for­mance.
