Titleist ambassador Chez Reavie has generated a lot of attention by capturing his first PGA Tour victory at the RBC Canadian Open using a new Titleist 909 driver. Equally impressive, though, were the many delicate greenside shots he was able to perform throughout the week with his Vokey Design Spin Milled 60-M, which he has bent to 58°.
The 60-M is the wedge that started it all for Voke on Tour, and the M grind is the basis for many of the special grinds that have followed. The 60-M features a crescent shaped forward bounce surface with moderate width and very little camber for versatile performance from a variety of turf conditions and face angles. A limited number of Vokey Design 60-M wedges are currently available for customization and purchase through Wedge Works on Vokey.com.
