Best balls for winter


Gary Forbes Head PGA Professional Murcar Links Golf Club

Is there a better feeling in golf than standing there with a wedge in hand and watching your ball stop dead next to the flag? It makes you feel like a Tour player, but there’s nothing in the rulebook to stop you hitting those shots consistently!

We’re not saying it’s easy, but this is the time of year when it’s easiest. Why? Well, as you can see in the slider images above, winter greens tend to be softer and that means your pitches will stop much quicker than in the summer months. Just look at how much closer to the hole they're landing the ball in winter compared with summer!

With all this said, you need to have control over your ball. The legendary TaylorMade TP5 & TP5x golf balls are designed with high wedge spin for exactly this purpose. Plus, the five increasingly stiff layers (from outer layer to core) means that you’ll get the same feeling as Tour players during the shot as well as when you’re watching it nestle in close to the hole. Then, once you’re on the green, you can also enjoy the ClearPath Alignment of Pix 2.0 patterns to help you hole more putts!
