New Vokey Wedge for Daisuke Maruyama

Here's a shot of the Spin Milled TVD 60° I made up for Daisuke Maruyama this week. He was playing a standard Vokey Design 260.08 pretty much all season, but saw another player's TVD model and asked if he could try one last week at the Wachovia Championship. Unfortunately, I only had a few 60° heads on hand and had already used them to build wedges for Brad Faxon, Zach Johnson and another player. Instead, I made him up a 58° TVD and bent it to 59°. I made him his 60° and left it in his locker as soon as I got the new heads in on Monday. I just saw him on the range and he said he loves it. There's not a lot of switching of wedges this week and I think a lot of it has to do with the course conditions being very similar to what the players saw at Quail Hollow last week. -- Bob Vokey

    Your best bet is to visit <a href="http://www.vokey.com" rel="nofollow">Vokey.com</a> and sign up for Wedge Works updates.  Not all wedges are currently readily available, but those on the update e-mail list are alerted when new wedges become available.

    How do I go about getting something like that in a 55 degree and personalized?

    There's really no such thing as a Tour-preferred bounce -- players have very individual preferences with regard to their wedges.  If you'd like to learn more about Titleist's methodology for fitting players into wedges, <a href="www.fittingworks.com/.../WedgeFitting.aspx" rel="nofollow">click here</a>.

    What is the preferred bounce of the Titleist equipment professionals for their 54° and 60° Spin Milled wedges? And, why are they selecting those bounce choices?

    Voke works with each of the players that use <a href="www.titleist.com/.../" rel="nofollow">Vokey Design wedges</a> on Tour to determine the proper setup for their wedges.  As such, there are numerous grinds and variations on those grinds on Tour.  And although custom grinding of wedges is not a consumer option for <a href="www.titleist.com/.../" rel="nofollow">Vokey Design wedges</a>, we recommend consulting with an <a href="www.fittingworks.com/FindaFitter.aspx" rel="nofollow">Authorized Titleist FittingWorks Partner</a> to determine the proper setup for your wedges.

    What are some of the other popular grinds that the Tour guys use?  Do the TVD wedges come in other grinds or just the M grind?  How would a person determine which grind would be best for them?  Last but not least, PLEASE bring these to golf shops.

    A very good looking wedge. The TVD has a very good shape.

    Daisuke's Spin Milled TVD features the M grind, which is Voke's "Most Favorite" grind due to its complexity and versatility. If you look at the image above, you'll notice that this grind features heel, toe, and trailing edge relief. This allows the player to hit shots using a variety of face angles and from a variety of turf conditions.

    Those TVD Wedges look great!  There has been a lot of speculation on various golf forums as to whether these wedges will ever make it into golf shops. Can you confirm or deny?

    Great idea to do the blog by the way!  I'm a faithful reader!!!

    As we commented <a href="/2007/03/21/back-ups-for-ben-curtis/#comments" rel="nofollow">here</a>, many of the prototype wedges and wedge grinds developed for performance-validation testing on Tour never reach the golf shops.  The ideas behind these products do, however, help shape our in-line offerings. The <a href="www.titleist.com/.../vokey200series.asp" rel="nofollow">Vokey Design 200 Series</a> and <a href="www.titleist.com/.../vokeyspinmilled.asp" rel="nofollow">Vokey Design Spin Milled</a> are both fantastic wedges.
