How to Practice With pix

Tony Starks April 15, 2020

There's no denying that pix is a golf ball with swagger, but it's alway a ball with purpose.

With ClearPath Alignment™, the TP5/TP5x pix doubles as a training aid. You get immediate feedback on every roll and instantly know when you’ve made a pure stroke.

How does it work? Twelve strategically placed multi-color graphics frame the single TaylorMade logo and TP5/TP5x stamp. On a well-struck putt where the ball is rolling end-over-end, you can see a clearing in the middle of ball which provides two key pieces of information:

  1. You’ve started the ball on your intended line;
  2. You’ve hit a quality putt.

This new tech was developed in collaboration with Rickie Fowler, who long been recognized as one of the best putters on the PGA Tour.

“The pix graphics give you a precise focal point to work with. When we started developing the new design, one of my first comments was if we didn’t have the full TaylorMade logo in two places, we would have space to create a path that works for alignment and feedback.”

Added bonus, pix can also be used to practice pitching and chipping because you can easily see the spin and rotation of the golf ball. Now that you know how it works, here's a collection of #practicewithpix tips and ideas that you can use to sharpen your short game.
