taylormade tp5 and tp5x golf balls five layers of innovation p layers looking for superior performance with all the clubs in their bag may want to consider the newest five-layer ball from TaylorMade. Because if they're good enough for world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, these golf balls are bound to help your game. Hitting driver and long iron shots, golfers will notice a higher tra- jectory and less spin, resulting in improved distance and straighter ball flight. Because the five-layer composition essen- tially creates two balls in one, the tp5 and tp5x also perform extremely well inside 100 yards – the soft outer cover is paired with a rigid inner cover to help generate spin and increase control around the greens. The TP5 has a slightly softer feel, with a compression rate of 83 compared to the TP5x's 90. "There has been a lot of hype about these new golf balls," said Steve Ax, a club salesman and custom clubfitter at Van's Golf Shop in Scottsdale, Arizona. "Golfers are seeing a little more distance out of it, and everyone likes that." shop here. ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 WHAT'S NEW taylormade p750 & p770 and m1 & m2 irons improved skill sets s ome of the best players in the world have put these irons in their bags this season, and better players will appre- ciate the effort that went into designing the high-performance p750 and p770 irons. With a classic and clean look, these forged irons feature a compact club head for precise shotmaking and immedi- ate feedback through impact. Five grams of tungsten weight- ing in the 3-7 irons gives both the P750 and P770 a perfectly positioned center of gravity. The P750 set retails at a slightly higher price point than the P770s – they offer a narrower sole, thinner topline and less offset, a combination that al- lows for maximum workability. "They did a great job with these irons – the best they've done in a long time," said Chris Nugent, the assistant manager at Uinta Golf of Sandy, Utah. "They look like a piece of jewelry, and they're unbelievably good golf clubs. With that combina- tion, they command a premium price." shop here. sCroll through the slideshow to view the m1 & m2 irons t t Â
