Fairhaven, MA (September 1, 2011) –  In response to the overwhelming success of WedgeWorks Exclusives and WedgeWorks Limited wedges, Titleist announces the launch of WedgeWorks Services.  Beginning September 1, 2011, Master Wedge Craftsman Bob Vokey is opening his custom shop, making services available to the public that had previously been reserved for Tour players only.  Now Vokey wedge enthusiasts can take advantage of a variety of wedge care, customization and personalization services to transform their favorite Vokey scoring clubs into unique, one-of-a-kind creations that reflect the performance preferences, style and personality of the individual golfer.

The launch of WedgeWorks Services reflects the demand from Vokey loyalists for Tour-like treatment, personalization and care.  As Bob Vokey explains,  “Wedges are personal.  Our Vokey Nation, as I like to call it, sees what’s being done on Tour for Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott, and our other staffers.  Now we can provide that same type of service.  It’s Tour treatment, without the Tour Card.”   

The personalization and customization options available through WedgeWorks Services are virtually endless, ranging from regripping, reshafting, cleaning and buffing, restoring paintfill, custom stamping, loft/lie adjustment, custom ferrule installation, laser etching on the shaft and weight porting on the back of the wedge to dial in a specific swingweight.  Customers can choose between a la carte services and full packages that combine various services. 

“We know there are a lot of Vokey wedges out there that need a little TLC,” commented Steve Pelisek, General Manager of Titleist Golf Clubs, “now you can send them back for a mini ‘spa treatment’ at WedgeWorks.  We’ll clean them up, buff them up, and personalize them to your specs.”
