Here's a New Year's resolution you can count on from Master Craftsman Bob Vokey: In 2012, Vokey Design TVD SM4 Wedges, featuring Titleist's new SM4 groove technology, are coming to WedgeWorks.

The Vokey Team will begin taking orders on Vokey.com beginning Jan. 11, 2012 – to be exact.

Vokey SM4 grooves feature entirely re-engineered scorelines up to the limit of the new USGA groove rule. With 17 scorelines and tighter spacing, the new TVD SM4 wedges will produce a lower launch with more backspin. TVD SM4 wedges also feature a localized heat treatment in the impact area for longer lasting spin retention. And every groove is 100-percent inspected.

 Like all offerings through WedgeWorks, Vokey TVD SM4 wedges will be completely customizable to match your personality and game – from toe engraving, personalized stamping, paintfill, grips, shafts, ferrules and shaftbands. Strong or weak, upright or flat, short or long – the choice is yours.

The TVD SM4 wedges will be immediately available in five lofts (52•08º, 54•10º, 56•12, 58•08º and 60•08º) and two finishes (Bright Brushed Chrome and Black Oxide).

In Spring 2012, a 50•08º model will be added to mix. This versatile gap wedge features the crescent shaped TVD sole and can be used to hit a variety of full, pitch, and chip shots.

Additional custom options available in 2012 include the BV Clover Toe Engraving (pictured below) and several new grips in a variety of colors, including the Vokey VDR grip from Golf Pride.

Laser Etching and Weight Porting will also be available as options on all new WedgeWorks wedges, including the Vokey Design 200 Series wedges in C-C groove configuration.

Most dominant golfer of the year? No argument there: It's Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng.

Quite fittingly, Yani won 11 times around the world in 2011, including a pair of major wins at the Wegmans LPGA Championship and Ricoh Women's British Open, and an extra-special victory at the Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship in front of her family and home crowd.

 If there is a post-season award out there without the 22-year-old's name on it, we haven't seen it.

Her goal for 2012?

"Win 12 or 13  I guess," Yani said, smiling. "I just want to keep working hard and trying to get better."

Playing a Pro V1x golf ball, Yani led the LPGA this season in several statistical categories, including Scoring Average (69.66), Birdies (4.65/round) and Driving Distance (269.2 yards). She also finished second in Greens in Regulation at 74.3 percent.

Of her 77 rounds on the LPGA, 54 were under par and 41 of them were in the 60s.

"My ball and I… we are a team," Yani told Team Titleist. "I'm a very feel player so the ball is very important to me. I don't have to worry about (my Pro V1x golf ball). I just play my game, and the ball is always there with me."

Team Titleist recently caught up with Yani to talk about the importance of being able to trust her golf ball, which you can watch in the above video.

While one could argue that an offseason no longer exists in professional golf, most players do take at least a few weeks off around this time of year.

Some put their clubs away for weeks, others for days, many of them at one point or another sneaking in some quality practice to get ready for the new season.

We recently caught up with several of our Titleist Brand Ambassadors and golf ball loyalists to see what they'll be working on during those practice sessions, which you can watch in the above video.

Video: If You Could Add a 15th Club...

Please excuse us as we (hypothetically) change the Rules of Golf for a few seconds...

If you were allowed to carry 15 clubs in your bag, which club would you add to the mix: A wedge or a long iron/fairway metal?

We recently posed this question to several of our Titleist Brand Ambassadors, including Gary Woodland, Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson, Scott Stallings, Adam Scott, Kyle Stanley, Bo Van Pelt and Rickie Fowler.

Check out the video above to hear which clubs they chose.
