The new TaylorMade TP5 and TP5x balls continue the company’s technological heritage of using a five-layer construction to optimise launch, spin and speed specifically for the requirements of wood, iron and wedge in your bag. But the latest iteration’s upgrade focuses on the layer just below the cover.
The new TaylorMade M5 and M6 drivers, the flagship products of the company’s new lineup of metalwoods that also includes fairway woods and hybrids, are about many things, but mostly they’re about being so fast they’re just this side of illegal.
TaylorMade's M5 and M6 drivers, set to be officially unveiled to the world on Thursday (US time), already made their existence legal with the ruling bodies with their appearance this week on the USGA list of conforming clubheads.
Such a performance is not only testimony to Woods’ resolve in coming back from career-threatening injuries, but also how Woods re-worked almost his entire bag during the course of 2018, something the normally reticent-to-change Woods fully embraced.
