    Hi Bill, Any wedge produced before the 2010 "groove" rule went into effect is illegal to play in an event governed by USGA rules. The "red" spin milled color was produced prior to 2010 so they are illegal for play.
    But, on the other hand, it might be time for new wedges as they are at least 7 years old :)

    Bill, have to agree with Cathi, after 7 years you probably don't have enough grooves left to spin the ball so why get caught illegal in competition when you can get a nice set of SM6's with brand new grooves that will give you stopping power? Tell Santa what you want. Merry Christmas!

    Guess you could try and go 54, 58, 62 or have the 62 bent to 64. Problem there is you will add 2 degrees of bounce. Maybe contact Vokey custom shop to make you a 64.

    2024 is the first possible date that amateur golfers will need to have the new grooves to post scores for handicap purposes, unless you are a competitive player planning to play in U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur qualifiers.
    for more detail check the PGA website link below

    Titleist pro's didn't have enough interest in a 64 wedge. You may want to contact the Vokey shop and weigh the merits of the Spin Mill 64 versus the SM6 or SM7 in a 62 degree. They can likely explain why it isn't offered anymore. Note the supplier of a 64 wedge for renown LH PGA pro doesn't offer more than a 60 for LH's. It may be time for a change with the enhancements they've make in the 5 releases since the Spin Mill.
