New Vokey Wedge for Daisuke Maruyama

Posted: May 8, 2007

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

I am just wondering if there is a way for Titleist consumers to get their wedges stamped with their initials much like the Scotty Cameron Custom Shop does for putters. I think it would be a really cool option and am curious to find out how it would be done.

Thanks!

When are the TVD wedges going to be in golf shops?

The TVD wedge looks great.  Will it be available to the public?

About stamping:

Check out a website like bombsquadgolf.com or something of the sort for more info.  Many people have figured out easy ways to stamp and paintfill.

Great looking wedge and thanks for sharing.  Can you explain the grind on this one and what it is intended to assist with as it relates to the course conditions?

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.

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!!!

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.

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