TaylorMade Golf introduces its 2024 lineup of golf balls, featuring the highly anticipated TP5 and TP5x models.

Already renowned as the 'Most Complete Tour Ball', the latest evolution of the TP5 and TP5x family takes a giant leap forward in golf ball innovation. The line-up features an all-new Speed Wrapped Core that impacts sound, feel and overall performance, creating TaylorMade’s fastest (TP5x) and softest feeling (TP5) tour balls to date. 

Available in white and yellow from 15 February 2024.

RRP: £44.99 per dozen 

Evolution of the TP5 and TP5x golf balls

Since debuting in 2017, the TP5/TP5x franchise has consistently delivered premium results at every level of the game. The proprietary 5-layer construction has continually evolved to enhance tee-to-green performance with breakthrough technologies that boost distance, wind stability and greenside control. 

In 2019, TaylorMade introduced the Speed-Layer System, incorporating High-Flex Material (HFM) into the TP5/TP5x construction, unlocking new levels of speed for all golfers.

In 2021, the brand built upon this legacy by introducing the Tour Flight Dimple Pattern, a design innovation that aimed to maximise aerodynamics, reduce wind resistance and add carry distance. 

2024: Game-changing innovation

Continuing a trend of innovation and engineering, the 2024 TP5/TP5x relies on a combination of new technologies to provide the biggest jumps in performance to date. The most impactful change is the first-of-its-kind Speed Wrapped Core, which produces a softer sound and better feel while paving the way for a faster overall construction. In the 2024 TP5/TP5x, the use of core materials as the central element of decoupling feel and distance represents a game-changing innovation in golf ball design. 

This year marks a critical evolution of the patented Speed Gradient construction that defines the TP5/TP5x franchise. In the 2024 TP5/TP5x, TaylorMade incorporated a new progressive 5-layer design fueled by the Speed Wrapped Core, which optimises variable stiffness between the core and mantle layers. This results in reduced spin on drivers and long irons while enhancing spin control for wedges. It is this variability in driver and wedge spin that maximises the capabilities of five-layer technology and allows the new TP5/TP5x to maintain its leadership position as the most complete tour ball. 

What's the difference between TP5 and TP5x golf balls?

TP5 and TP5x represent two distinct choices that cater to different player preferences.

The TP5, TaylorMade's softest 5-layer Tour ball, offers a notably softer feel with enhanced spin around the green. This ball fits golfers who prioritise touch and feel in their short game, providing responsive and precise control. The new TP5 provides lower driver spin than the prior generation but maintains its best-in-class greenside performance. 

TP5x is TaylorMade's fastest 5-layer Tour ball. This design prioritises ball speed, making it the ideal choice for golfers seeking increased velocity off the clubface. The new TP5x also sees a reduction in driver and long iron spin, with a focus on distance while maintaining greenside control. It delivers unmatched performance for players seeking lower driver spin while also delivering faster ball speeds than the prior-gen product. 

All-new TP5/TP5x pix™ with ClearPath Alignment™ 

The 2024 TP5/TP5x pix™ golf balls build on the groundbreaking visual technology of ClearPath Alignment™, which is the most played all-over print visual technology on Tour. Compared to previous generations, the new model features a longer centreline and additional colour contrast, offering golfers easier alignment and more precise feedback on the green.
