Live Chat with Master Craftsman Bob Vokey! Your Questions Answered

Posted: November 5, 2010

Do you ever wonder what inspires Master Craftsman Bob Vokey while behind the wheel working on the perfect grind for his next wedge?

After sticking a shot close with your trusty Vokey wedge, do you ponder how all of the elements of club design worked in perfect harmony with your swing?

Do you want to know how “The Voke” comes up with his masterpieces?

Well, we’ve got some great news for you…

The one and only Bob Vokey will be answering questions during a live webcast on Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 6 p.m. EST (3 p.m. PST), with our friends over at GolfWRX. (Click here to go to GolfWRX for more details.)

And before “The Voke” goes live, we are giving members of Vokey Nation and Team Titleist the chance to have their questions answered first.  

Next week, we’ll be stopping by WedgeWorks, our high performance custom shop in Carlsbad, Calif., for a little fireside chat (minus the fire) with Bob, made up entirely of your questions and his answers.

He won’t be able to answer them all, so make sure your question is a good one – Bob is going to handpick the ones he answers.

And by the way, if your question is picked, you’ll also receive a special gift from Bob and the Vokey Wedges Team. (Hint: You can wear it on your head.)

Simply post your question in the comments section below we’ll take care of the rest.*

*Please note: The Voke has finished reading all of your questions and has chosen the ones he is going to answer. He thanks everyone for the overwhelming response and looks forward to answering more of your questions in the near future. Stay tuned for Bob's answers later this week right here on Team Titleist!

Thanks!

With as much technology as there is in wedges these days, much of which you have provided, is there still a good deal of room to improve and make wedges even better? If so, in what ways? Better grooves? Innovative head shape? Thank you!

Mr. Vokey

Have you considered providing a reconditioning services for us that refuse to give up our older Vokey Wedges?  I currently own a custom grind and (its the only club that has NOT needed a spanking), but it could use some cosmetic restoration.  Your thoughts.

Thank You

Mr Vokey,

Thank you for the great wedges you continue to produce year after year.  In your experience what is the most beneficial metal to use when crafting wedges and are you experimenting with any new metals for future designs?

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the opportunity.  My question is, could you pinpoint one particularly great lesson, about life or golf, that you have gained from working with the best players in the world?

Thanks again and Best Regards to you and yours,

PS - my new Vokey wedge was just delivered today - I am very excited to get out on the course and run it through its paces!  Thank you Bob - you and your team rock!

What do you recomend for shaft flex in wedges. For example if I have the 5.5 rifle in my irons would you suggest a 5.0 or to match the irons at 5.5.

First off i love your wedeges, they are all around supierior then any other company.  My question, would you make a full set of irons vokey style? Those would be quite an awesome set of clubs.

Hi Bob,

I know that each wedge design is based on your experience working with some of the best players in the world. Which golfer has had the most significant influence on your wedge designs?

Thanks

Is it better to use a plastic-bristled brush or a metal wire brush to clean the grooves of my vokey wedge or is plain ol' spit and a golf towel sufficient
