Taylormade TP5X Athlete Edition
“This makes my current ball feel outdated,” said Jason Day
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.
