Rickie Fowler Captures WMPO; first PGA TOUR win with new TaylorMade TP5x Golf Ball
"A lot of the best players in the world are playing pretty damned well with them. It's no joke.” -Rickie Fowler, on his choice to switch to the TP5x
After making this statement before putting the ball into play for the first time at the Farmers Insurance Open last week, Rickie can now include himself as one of the best players in the world playing - and playing well - with TaylorMade's TP5/x golf balls.
"I think the golf ball is the biggest switch you can make in the bag...if it didn’t work for me, I wasn’t going to settle for anything else." -Fowler, on the importance of the golf ball and his switch to TaylorMade Tp5x
Rickie staved off three of the highest ranked players in the field to win at TPC Scottsdale, notching his 5th PGA TOUR victory.
TaylorMade introduced the 2019 TP5 and TP5x golf balls earlier this month, following the resounding global success of their predecessors on worldwide tours. With Fowler, 6 of the top 12 players in the Official World Golf Rankings have now put either the ‘19 TP5 or TP5x in play, further validating its world class performance. The 2019 models feature a new Speed Layer System with High-Flex Material (HFM), the fastest material the company has ever used in a golf ball.
The all new TP5 and TP5x golf balls will hit retail shelves around the world on February 15.
