Open Championship week is always one of our favorites here at Team Titleist. It marks the season’s third major, features a rota of historical courses overseas and the winner takes home one of the most iconic trophies in sports – the Claret Jug.
It is also the time of year we get to celebrate the birthday of Master Craftsman Bob Vokey.
And to help celebrate, “The Voke” has a special gift for two lucky Team Titleist members… He is going to get behind the grinding wheel to create two custom Vokey WedgeWorks Hand Ground wedges – one for each lucky winner.
But before Bob starts work on these custom masterpieces, each winner will be contacted by the WedgeWorks team to get his or her complete specifications dialed-in. This includes reviewing all available grinds and custom tweaks available through WedgeWorks (get more info on Vokey WedgeWorks Hand Ground Wedges here...).
Bob will then hand grind the one of a kind wedge, the same as he does for top touring pros around the world. To top it off, each winner will receive a Hand Ground specifications certificate, signed by Bob, as proof of authenticity. The retail value of each wedge is $350.
So how do you enter the sweeps? Just send “The Voke” a happy birthday message by adding a comment to this post and we’ll randomly select two winners from all of the comments.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: To enter the contest, log in to your Team Titleist account and then send your birthday wishes to Bob by adding a comment (see below) to this blog post by Sunday, July 21, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.*
Example Comment: Happy Birthday, Voke!

The Voke with Tour Rep Aaron Dill take a closer look as they work on another hand ground creation.
A lot goes into a finished product, so let's take a look at this special process.
Master Craftsman Bob Vokey welcomes you into the Vokey Hand Ground program.
...hand grinding another custom wedge.
WedgeWorks Hand Ground offers four different character stamping styles -- straight, freestyle, snow, and the new staircase option -- in up to eight letters and/or numbers.
The Tour-level treatment carries over to personalization, with a number of exclusive stamping, engraving and paintfill options.
"Hand Ground" is engraved on each hosel to designate the special nature of the wedge.
There are four toe stamp options... Prototype 2013, Hand Ground, Special Grind and Spin Milled.
Golfers also have the choice to get the club's loft (i.e. 58) stamped on the toe.
All character and toe stamping options are available in one of 12 different paintfill colors.
Another Vokey Hand Ground wedge is ready to ship!
Vokey 59 T grind with weight porting to lower the SW to D3. BVHG toe stamping with snow dots and Titleist in Freestyle.
Vokey 58V Prototype at 58.5* with square toe, pre-worn leading edge and staircase stamping.
Vokey 58M with beveled topline, extra heel relief and PD snow stamping.
Vokey 58E with extra heel relief and BV Hand Ground toe stamping.
