Groove a better short game with Titleist's new Vokey wedges
by Carly Frost
January 30, 2014

Bob Vokey is a name synonymous with master wedge craftsmanship so it will come as no surprise to you that his latest design, the new Vokey Spin Milled 5 wedge, has gone down a storm with golfers out on Tour.

These wedges have been designed with new deeper TX3 grooves to give more spin, helping you hit a wider variety of shots and allowing you to hit it close and shoot lower scores. The TX3 has a seven percent larger groove volume to help deliver maximum spin by channeling away grass and sand for improved contact between the ball and the groove edge.

Spin Milled technology also provides trajectory and distance control through precisely milled grooves and machined face texture. Every SM5 wedge is milled to the tightest tolerance in the industry, with each groove individually cut to the maximum dimensions allowed by the Rules of Golf and 100-percent inspected. A localised, high frequency heat treatment to the face provides increased groove durability for longer spin retention over the life of the wedge.

Vokey SM5 wedges are available in 21 different loft/bounce/grind combinations and six tour-inspired sole grinds, appropriately slotted into low, mid and high bounce categories to fit all swing types, shot-making styles and short game conditions. They come in a choice of three new finishes - Tour Chrome, Gold Nickel and Raw Black and are priced at £103.
