Bob Vokey: Your Questions Answered (Part III)

Posted: November 16, 2010

We are now just hours away from Master Craftsman Bob Vokey's live webcast with our friends over at GolfWRX, today at 6 p.m. EST (3 p.m. PST).

So to get you ready for "The Voke" going live, here are a few more of Bob's answers to questions asked by members of Team Titleist and Vokey Nation last week, focusing on grooves, bounce and sole grinds. Some really great stuff from Bob, as usual.

(And if you missed the first two segments, you can check them out here and here.)

See you all soon!


Pete B. of St. Cloud, Minn. asks…

Mr. Vokey, regarding the groove rule changes, the general consensus is that the average golfer is not going to be able to produce as much spin as before. What type of innovations are you using to overcome this?

Don B. of Amarillo, Texas, asks…

I hear all the time that players do not have enough bounce on their wedges. I am a scratch player from Texas, play on mostly firm courses and have always preferred SW and LW's with low bounce. Am I missing scoring opportunities playing low bounce wedges?

Dan W. of North Grafton, Mass., asks...

Do different sole grinds really have an impact for amateur/weekend players, or do more traditional fitting options such as lie angle and shafts have a bigger impact on wedge play?

I'm attempting to resurrect a 60-04 found after they drained the local pond.  Some rust as a ;result of the mud but appears to be usable.  Any suggestions for rehab on what appears to be an excellent club?

Mr. Vokey, could you please explain me the reason why you choose to offer these 3 models of finish for your wedges( Tour Chrome, Black Nicklel and Oil Can)

bob vokey is a treasure to golf,  i really found his thoughts extremly informative, after all, a muni golfer like me does not get to talk to people like mr. vokey and be able to pick his brain.  I do use his wedges and would not play any other.
