More about the difference between a Taylormade TP5 and TP5x golf ball

The TaylorMade TP5 and TP5x golf balls are both premium, tour-level golf balls designed for golfers seeking exceptional performance and control.

Golf Ball Construction:

TP5: The TP5 is a 5-layer golf ball. It features a Tri-Fast Core with dual-spin cover, which combines to provide good distance and control around the greens. This ball is known for its softer feel.

TP5x: The TP5x is also a 5-layer golf ball but is designed for higher swing speeds. It has a stiffer outer layer, which results in less spin off the driver but higher launch. It's designed for golfers who want a more penetrating ball flight.

Golf Ball Spin and Trajectory:

TP5: The TP5 typically generates more spin, particularly on approach shots and around the green. It's a good choice for golfers who prefer a softer feel and want more control on their short game.

TP5x: The TP5x produces lower spin, especially off the tee. It offers a penetrating ball flight and is generally preferred by golfers with faster swing speeds and those looking for more distance.

Golf Ball Feel:

TP5: Golfers often describe the TP5 as having a softer feel off the clubface. This is due to its construction and the materials used in its design.

TP5x: The TP5x, while still considered a premium ball, may feel slightly firmer off the clubface, which some golfers prefer.

Golf Ball Performance:

TP5: The TP5 is designed for a balance of distance, control, and spin. It's suitable for a wide range of golfers.

TP5x: The TP5x is geared more towards distance and a penetrating ball flight, making it an excellent choice for players with higher swing speeds.
