TaylorMade Golf announces milestone performance improvements in new TP5 and TP5x Yellow Golf Balls

TaylorMade Golf  

TaylorMade Golf Company announced the release of its enhanced TP5 and TP5x yellow golf ball models. Highlighted by its new High-Flex Material (HFM) TaylorMade has taken the 2019 TP5 & TP5x to a new level of performance. 

The key to achieving enhanced speed without impacting other areas of performance comes down to the ability to weave the new High-Flex Materiall (HFM) within TaylorMade's propriety 5-layer ball construction. In traditional golf balls with 3-4 layers, manufacturers are unable to utilise a soft core AND maintain high ball velocities.

With the 2019 TP5 and TP5x, speed and spin are effectively decoupled—which enables an incredibly soft core to be “wrapped” by increasingly stiff materials, creating a Speed-Layer System with each outer layer getting progressively faster.


 Based on initial player testing with the 2019 TP5 and TP5x, the top athletes in the world are experiencing speeds they’ve never seen before. During a recent testing session, Jon Rahm (who averages 177-179 MPH ball speed with driver) was seeing numbers upward of 186 MPH with an average of around 182.5 MPH. Additional TaylorMade staff professionals also experienced noticeable gains in ballspeed at a recent testing session across high, mid and lower swing speeds.

With the improved cover durability, new HFM material, and TaylorMade’s proprietary 5-layer design, TP5 and TP5x are able to produce optimal flight, velocity, and control regardless of which model golfers prefer to play.

The TP5 and TP5x offer complete tee-to-green performance thanks to TaylorMade’s patented 5-layer construction. While both deliver significant distance off the tee, the TP5 has a softer feel (85 compression), launches lower on iron shots and has more spin around the greens (+300 compared to TP5x at 100 yards & +200 at 30 yards) while the TP5x has a firmer feel (97 compression) and will generate higher launching iron shots.


The TP5 and TP5x yellow golf balls are available at retail at an RRP of £49.99 / €58 per dozen.
