Please use this thread for all discussions, impressions and reviews of the new version of the TP5 & TP5x golf balls from TaylorMade The new TP5 and TP5x golf balls will be available at retail on February 15th. NEW SPEED-LAYER SYSTEM The new Speed-Layer System is comprised of four increasingly stiff layers to produce more ball speed. The result is more carry distance off the tee, more control in the wind, and more spin around the greens. NEW HIGH-FLEX MATERIAL (HFM) The 2019 TP5/TP5x feature a new material called HFM—delivering for higher ball speed through a greater rebound effect. HFM acts like a tightly wound spring that builds energy and rebounds quickly, generating more ball speed.
POWERED BY M5 DRIVER & '19 TP5X GOLF BALL, DUSTIN JOHNSON CAPTURES WGC-MEXICO CHAMPIONSHIP Johnson's 21st career victory is the second global win for TaylorMade’s New M5 & M6 Drivers featuring the company’s ground-breaking Injected Twist Face technology; joins stablemate Tiger Woods as only players to win same WGC event three times. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: After gaming the M6 driver en route to victory at the Saudi International last month, Johnson made the switch into a 10.5° M5 driver after seeing more ball speed and less spin in recent testing sessions. Per usual, he has it equipped with his favorite Fujikura Speeder Evolution 661 X Tour Spec 2.0 shaft. In addition to the M5 driver, DJ also recently added a 15° M5 fairway to his bag, armed with Project X's HZRDUS Black X shaft; the same shaft he carried in his fairway(s) last season. Dustin’s second victory of the season is the third win for the new 2019 TP5/x golf ball (Johnson & Fowler); DJ’s preferred golf ball is the '19 TP5x, stamped #1. Like last season, DJ continues to play the P730 DJ Proto irons in 4-PW. As he has for most of his recent career, DJ has them equipped with True Temper's Dynamic Gold X100 shafts. A major proponent of the MG wedges, Dustin opted for 52° & 60° lofts this week in addition to a 64° Hi-Toe. As usual, he has them equipped with his trusted KBS Tour 120S shafts. Johnson has found remarkable success with the Spider Tour over the last few years, using it to escalate him to #1 in the World. With his win in Mexico, he is expected to elevate to #2 in the OWGR and has the potential to once again claim the #1 position the following week. With the victory, Johnson continues his remarkable streak of winning at least one PGA TOUR event to 12 consecutive seasons, the longest active streak on Tour.

Been gaming the Taylormade TP5X ball for about 2 months now and am really liking it a lot. Long off the tee with a good solid feel. Doesn't feel too hard and performs well. Had been playing the 2016 ProV1x prior. We all know they feel great and green side control is amazing. Better than the Tp5x. I wonder if the TP5 performs better on the greens. Here's a look at the cores and inner layers of the two side by side. Pretty interesting.
