The Latest In Vokey Wedges

One of the long-time allures of the wedges produced for Titleist by Bob Vokey is the way they incorporate different looks and technologies of clubs developed for and used by Tour professionals. Like the new Vokey TVD-K wedges, released this spring and made available through his WedgeWorks Exclusives line on The TVD-Ks are a result of Vokey’s work with Tour players such as Adam Scott, Jason Dufner and Ben Crane to develop a sole that is highly playable in a variety of conditions and situations. They come in three loft/bounce combinations – 56.12 degrees, 58.10 degrees and 60.10 degrees – and two new finishes – California Chrome and Graphite Ion. All the wedges feature a wider, more cambered sole and are made to be most suitable for neutral-to-digger swing types. In addition, they boast the Vokey SM4 grooves, which company officials describe as “100-percent inspected, tight tolerance, aggressive groove edges at the limits allowed by the Rules of Golf.” “The TVD-K is the evolution of the TK grind that we have had on Tour,” Vokey says. “It has enough bounce to be very forgiving out of the bunkers but still allows shot-making around the greens.” Wedgeworks is Vokey’s custom shop, based in Carlsbad, Calif., and the new TVD-Ks (for Tour Van Design) are one of two so-called “Exclusives” lines (the other being the TVD-M, which was released in 2010). Vokey says Wedgeworks is a way for him to bring Tour level personalization and customization to his loyalists as well as high performance. To that point, the TVD-Ks are available with new KBS Tour shafts that feature a custom black matte finish. And players can decorate their club heads with white, snowflake-like dots. A wide variety of other custom options are available as well, on Vokey’s website.
