Bob Vokey’s Master Craftsmanship On Display With The SM6 Line of Wedges
Bob Vokey opened up shop as a clubmaker in 1976 just north of San Diego. After a period with TaylorMade, Bob joined Titleist to work on the 975D titanium driver. Recognizing his talent, Titleist asked him to lead the development of the world-class wedges which bear his name today. With the Pro Tours as his R&D facility, Vokey design wedges have grown into one of the most popular wedges on Tour. Since 2004, nearly 40% of all lob, sand and approach wedges in play each week are Vokey Design. “The thing that really motivates me is talking and working with tour players and amateurs and listening to them tell me how our wedges have helped improve their scores.” states Bob.
With the new SM6 series, Vokey design introduces a progressive center of gravity (CG). Gap distances between clubs are more important especially closer to the green with wedge play. For higher lofts a higher CG and for lower lofts a lower CG. The net result is precise distance and trajectory control through the wedge set. Tour players agree including Jordan Speith who says, “I didn't know how Voke could improve on what he did with the SM5s but somehow he's done it again, he and his team. These are amazing.”
Finding exactly the right wedge set is possible with the myriad of combinations available. Choose either the Tour Chrome, Steel Gray or Jet Black finish, find lofts from 46 to 62 degrees and select from 5 grinds to match your game. Titleist offers custom wedge fitting from any of their certified fitters. And since wedges can get personal, customization is possible with the WedgeWorks program. Vary the shafts, grips, shaft bands, ferrules, stampings or even the paintfill of the wedge to get a one of a kind scoring wand.
