Groove Conformance

Ryan W

I have a Vokey Design, Spin Milled (SM4 with white SM logo), 54-11 wedge (with BV logo). I have no idea how old it is or if it conforms to the USGA groove rules. I checked on the USGA conformance website but could not locate the wedge out of the 600+ Titleist wedges that are there. I also tried looking up the serial number (3700642) online with no luck. Any guidance here would be appreciated.

    SM4 is within the rules. I think they were released in 2011 or 2012. 2009 Spin Milled were the last wedges Vokey made that will be no longer be conforming for amateurs in 2020 (I think). In the meantime, the 2009 are conforming for most amateur events and posted rounds. However, they have not been conforming for pros since 2010.

    Titleist archives for SM4 shows conforming.

    Unless your playing a PGA/Web.com event they don't enforce that rule. One popular commercial mini tour wasn't using grove rules until 2018 I believe.

    Why do these responses never show up when I'm reading these threads? Doug E's post shows a response yesterday. As of 7:36am EST there wasn't one. Not the first time either.

    Hi JCaldwell,

    Good question! The timestamps on the posts show when a user submits a comment, and then it goes into our moderation queue. Depending on the time of day when a reply or thread is submitted, some are approved and posted sooner than others.

    We try to post everything as soon as possible, but sometimes it may take a few hours for us to clear the moderation queue.

    Hope this helps shed some light!

    Thanks,
    Mike
