TaylorMade TP5 golf balls are simply the most complete Tour balls ever created. With their 5-layer construction, the TP5 is engineered to perform with every club and has zero compromises due to their patented Tri-Fast Core and Dual-Spin Cover technology. Tri-Fast Core The Tri-Fast Core on TP5 golf balls features a unique 3-layer system along with progressive compression, which enables maximum energy transfer and allows you to generate massive speed on full shots with your woods and irons. Simply put, the Tri-Fast Core gives you awesome speed and distance. Dual-Spin Cover The Dual-Spin Cover on the TP5 features a contrasting ultra-soft cast urethane cover that works with a semi-rigid inner cover to create maximum interaction between the cover and your club's grooves. This results in exceptional spin performance on full wedge shots and precise control around the green. How does the TP5 compare to the TP5x? While the TaylorMade TP5 is extremely long, the TP5x is a bit longer in distance. The TP5 will result in a mid trajectory compared to the TP5x's high trajectory and it won't result in as much iron spin as the TP5x. Finally, the TP5 will feel softer than the TP5x at impact.
