Team Titleist would like to wish a big Happy Birthday to master craftsman Bob Vokey, whose Vokey Design wedges are the overwhelming favorite each week among PGA Tour players.

Vokey joined Titleist in 1996, where his first project was assisting with the final specifications of the popular Titleist Titanium 975D driver. He now relies on both old-fashioned hand skills and high-tech R&D to design and develop the game's finest wedges.

Vokey's wedges have been used in 18 major championship victories since 1997.

As much as I wanted to play the game, I realized my strength was in learning about golf clubs, re-shafting them, designing them and making them. - Bob Vokey
