Following the announcement of the new TaylorMade Golf RocketBallz, TaylorMade Golf have also announced improvements on its flagship PENTA golf ball range with new improved PENTA TP3 and PENTA TP5 golf balls.


TaylorMade PENTA TP3The new PENTA TP3 three piece golf balls offers tour performance at affordable price with a tour caliber golf ball designed to increase spin without sacrificing distance.

Similar to the PENTA TP5, the TP3 model has the same tour-proven cast urethane cover material which results in an incredibly soft golf ball that that will perform beautifully from tee to green. It was engineered for the golfer who could benefit from a ball that spins more – specifically on their long and mid-irons.

“Golfers are all different and require variations in their equipment to best suit their games,” said John Kawaja, TaylorMade executive vice president. “The added spin from the TP3 will offer more control for a wider range of golfers while maintaining distance off the tee. Engineering a product with Tour-level performance at a lower price point is a huge plus for the consumer.”

The PENTA TPs proprietary REACT core technology allows for lower driver spin with added speed to create longer ball flights with the driver. It also increases driver ball speed and lowers driver spin, but on mid and short irons works together with the durable, thin cast urethane cover to create increased spin without sacrificing distance off the tee.

The new PENTA TP3 will be available from March 2012 for more information visit www.taylormadegolf.com


TaylorMade Golf PENTA TP5TaylorMade introduced the first 5 layer golf ball 2 years ago with the introduction of the PENTA TP. With the launch of the new and improved PENTA TP5 they are looking to raise the bar in ball innovation with advancements on distance and feel that will appeal to all golfers.

“The PENTA TP5 was created for our tour pros, yet it's a great ball for every level of player,” said John Kawaja, TaylorMade executive vice president. “You don't need to have a fast swing speed to achieve excellent distance with the PENTA TP5. Golfers will also benefit from the same high greenside spin they have become accustomed to with the original PENTA TP.”

Key to the increased performance of the PENTA TP5 is a 28% lower core compression, combined with the company’s unique Progressive Velocity Design. The result is lower driver spin for more distance and improved softer feel. The PENTA TP 5’s faster outer mantle and thin tour-proven cast urethane cover delivers the amount of spin in the scoring zone that a distance ball can't compete with. This gives players with slower swing speeds the added control to get up-and-down more often without sacrificing distance performance.

5 Layer Construction

The performance of the PENTA TP5 is rooted in its five-layer construction — cover, outer mantle, middle mantle, inner mantle and core – which is engineered to optimize performance in five key shot categories that skilled players need – driver, long-irons, middle-irons, short-irons and partial wedges.

The soft, fast Inner Mantle, which surrounds the core, promotes soft feel, high launch and low spin off the long-irons for exceptional distance and high, soft-landing flight that helps the ball sit quickly on the green.

The semi-firm and fast Middle Mantle, which surrounds the Inner Mantle promotes mid-launch and mid-spin off the middle irons. Mid-launch promotes control; mid-spin keeps the ball from up-shooting, ballooning and falling short of the target.  Positioned just beneath the cover, the outer mantle is the fastest mantle in the ball and is easily compressed by slower swing speeds (ball speeds 120 mph and below), helping those players to generate higher ball speed for increased distance.

Tour players including Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer, Darren Clarke, Justin Rose will make the switin to the PENTA TP5 ball.

The new PENTA TP5 will be available from Feb 2012 for more information visit www.taylormadegolf.com
