SM5 M Grind vs S Grind

Thanks for the information. As a SM4 player it's good to see what other players are experiencing with the newer titleist wedges.

I was lucky to see the peeps from Vokey at The Patriot Cup this past weekend.

From what I got was S is for Square (Also based on work with  Stricker)

M is for More Versatile for the golfer who plays different shots like a Flop Shop.

Im playing M Grinds and b4 I found out the meanings I just said M is for MONEY Shot  ;-)  


I just bought the SM5 - M grind 54 and 58 degree wedges and before I use them, i am having second thoughts because I am a 15 handicap who plays in all kinds of weather conditions being from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I did some research but never hit the SM5 and I learned that the M grind is the most versatile wedge, which is why I chose them. 

I would say I am more of a digger but I only take large divots when I slow down the swing when I am not confident about the shot. The bottom line is that I want the most versatile but also the most FORGIVING wedge between the M grind and the S grind. I checked out the vokey site and I still couldn't get the answer I am looking for. 

What I mean by versatile is that I want to use the wedge comfortably out of bunkers and I want to use the 54 degree on full shots from 80 to 100 yards out and the 58 degree from 50 - 75 yards on full shots and then I want to pitch and chip with the 58. 

What is the most forgiving club in the sand and on full shots the M grind or the S grind and why? 

I appreciate any insight that anyone can provide.


you will need to check on line before going to your local Dicks. Only a select few Dicks actually carry the Vokey wedges in the store and they are not available for order online last time i checked. For what it is worth, these are amazing wedges. Go to the fitting site to pick out the right ones for you. The process to select the correct grind is excellent.

Good luck.
