In 1996 Master Wedge Craftsman Bob Vokey joined Titleist.
After eight months at the work bench and on the grinding wheel, he brought his first prototype wedges to the PGA Tour.
And as Bob recounts in the video above, twenty years ago this week, the first Vokey Design wedge went into play at St. Jude Classic in Memphis, Tennessee.
To commemorate that special milestone, Bob has crafted a replica of his original 456.14 sand wedge as a limited release during this week's St. Jude Classic.
The 456.14 LTD features a classic design with increased offset and a rounded profile. The 14° bounce makes it a great option in soft conditions, bunkers and steep angles of attack while providing great versatility around the greens. The 456.14 achieves maximum spin through TX4 groove technology and is available in a unique Polished Chrome Finish.
As part of WedgeWorks, the Vokey Design 456.14 LTD wedge can be customized, including personalized stamping in up to eight characters and one of 12 paintfill colors. WedgeWorks also includes an industry-leading selection of shafts, grips, shaft bands and ferrules. Additional custom options including weight porting, shaft laser etching and custom ferrules are also available.
The Vokey Design 456.14 LTD is available in limited quantities beginning June 7, 2017. For more information, visit the 456.14 product page on Vokey Wedge Works.
