Rickie Fowler wins Waste Management Phoenix Open
First PGA TOUR win with new TaylorMade TP5x Golf Ball
In just his second week playing the TP5x competitively after more than a decade playing his previous model, TaylorMade's newest staffer has captured the 2nd victory for the new '19 TP5/x line in the same day following stablemate Dustin Johnson's victory at the Saudi International.
"A lot of the best players in the world are playing pretty damned well with them. It's no joke" said 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.
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 & TP5x golf balls will hit retail shelves around the world on February 15.
