Details on the new 2024 TaylorMade TP5, TP5x golf balls (plus new Pix)

Feb, 2024

TaylorMade has enhanced and updated its tour golf balls for 2024, launching the first TP5 and TP5x balls since 2021. The Carlsbad-based company is also releasing a new generation of its TP5/X Pix line of balls.

The centerpiece technology of the new TP5 and TP5 is TaylorMade’s Speed Wrapped Core. According to the company, this innovation allowed engineers to create, with TP5x, the fastest ball and, with TP5, the softest ball in company history.

2024 TaylorMade TP5, TP5x golf balls

At the center of TaylorMade’s five-layer construction, the Speed Wrapped Core “optimizes variable stiffness between the core and mantle layers,” according to the company, contributing to reduced spin on longer clubs and more spin control on wedge shots. TaylorMade notes a softer sound and better feel in this iteration of its cast urethane golf balls.

“Our learnings from countless player and Tour tests show that golfers, unsurprisingly, favor a softer more muted sound with added distance,” said Michael Fox, TaylorMade’s Senior Director of Product Creation, Golf Balls. “Historically, the challenge has been the inability to improve one without negatively impacting the other. With this understanding, we’ve evolved our golf ball design process by uniquely decoupling feel and speed through material advancement, a complete departure from the conventional. The material-level advancement positions our TP5/TP5x family as having the best feel in the industry with faster constructions.”

2024 TP5/TP5x Pix

Pix’s ClearPath Alignment gets an upgrade for 2024. The balls feature a longer centerline and more color contrast for greater ease of alignment and more visual feedback.

In addition, based on tour and consumer feedback, the shape of the Pix graphic was changed from a triangle to a diamond shape. A tweak to the color palette moves the black portions of the designs further from the centerline for better visibility and ease of alignment.

The company is expanding its lineup of both stock and limited-edition offerings for 2024. Stay tuned on both fronts, including “MySymbol” wherein TaylorMade athletes craft unique Pix designs.
