Titleist Performance Institute co-founder and Golf Magazine Top 100 instructor Dave Phillips will be offering his expertise in a new series called "Up & Down with Dave Phillips." The series of short game tips is a collaboration between MyTPI.com and Vokey.com, and can be viewed from both sites. The first episode features Dave discussing bounce angle as it relates to wedge fitting and the new line of Vokey Design Spin Milled wedges. Be sure to click on the video player below to see Dave discuss this important aspect of wedge design.
To learn more about bounce, check out the bounce entry in the Vokey.com glossary.
Best of both worlds?
I'm not exactly sure why, but my new Vokey 58.12 with the special grind on the sole is my favorite wedge of all time. Lots of bounce for the sand, but the heel doesn't catch when I open it up for a flop from a tighter lie. I have never had so much confidence with a higher lofted wedge!
I am curious as to why this grind is only offered in the 58° version? Are you hearing a lot of positive comments about this grind from others?
