Vokey Creates New Spin On Wedges

Clubmaker Bob Vokey continues to look for ways to improve the premium wedges he produces for Titleist, and his latest effort, known as Spin Milled 5 line or SM5, is designed to provide more spin on more types of shots. He says it also gives golfers the industry’s most extensive range of options, with 21 loft/bounce/grind combinations and six Tour-inspired grinds.
Made of 8620 carbon steel, the SM5 wedges feature TX3 grooves, which boast 7 percent more groove volume as well as two performance configurations that channel away sand and grass for improved contact between the ball and groove edge and better spin. The Spin Milled technology used for these also is made to provide precise trajectory and distance control as a result of the milled grooves and machined face texture.
According to Vokey, each groove is milled to the tightest possible tolerance and individually cut to the maximum dimensions allowed by the Rules of Golf, and then 100 percent inspected. In addition, a localized high-frequency face treatment provides increased groove durability for longer spin retention during the life of the wedge.
