Live Chat with Master Craftsman Bob Vokey! Your Questions Answered

Do you ever wonder what inspires Master Craftsman Bob Vokey while behind the wheel working on the perfect grind for his next wedge?

After sticking a shot close with your trusty Vokey wedge, do you ponder how all of the elements of club design worked in perfect harmony with your swing?

Do you want to know how “The Voke” comes up with his masterpieces?

Well, we’ve got some great news for you…

The one and only Bob Vokey will be answering questions during a live webcast on Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 6 p.m. EST (3 p.m. PST), with our friends over at GolfWRX. (Click here to go to GolfWRX for more details.)

And before “The Voke” goes live, we are giving members of Vokey Nation and Team Titleist the chance to have their questions answered first.  

Next week, we’ll be stopping by WedgeWorks, our high performance custom shop in Carlsbad, Calif., for a little fireside chat (minus the fire) with Bob, made up entirely of your questions and his answers.

He won’t be able to answer them all, so make sure your question is a good one – Bob is going to handpick the ones he answers.

And by the way, if your question is picked, you’ll also receive a special gift from Bob and the Vokey Wedges Team. (Hint: You can wear it on your head.)

Simply post your question in the comments section below we’ll take care of the rest.*

*Please note: The Voke has finished reading all of your questions and has chosen the ones he is going to answer. He thanks everyone for the overwhelming response and looks forward to answering more of your questions in the near future. Stay tuned for Bob's answers later this week right here on Team Titleist!

    Mr. Vokey, my name is landon and I am 13 years old and as a young golfer I am curious about how you do your work and designs on your vokey wedges.

    Dear Sir. I play two main courses. One the soil is wet or like it's name Pudding Ridge (pudding). The other is totally different and is as hard as asphalt. In playing the 58 degree Vokey at the same distance on each course, what adjustments in placing the wedge in the stance should do. I hope I am clear. thank you.

    Dear Mr. Vokey,

    Just a short note to say Thank you your time during the Straight Down Fall Classic this month in Central California. It is always a pleasure to speak with you about your wedges. Blake Nicolai who was my playing partner had a great time visiting with you and is one of your biggest fans. Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving! Alex

    Mr. Vokey,

    Do you find that the tour players do not use higher lofted wedges (58, 59 60+) from fairway type lies. I heard one Titleist Player indicate this and related it to the way these clubs contact the turf vs. their primary use from sand.

    I am not a "technical" person when it comes to chosing a wedge.  I go by feel.  Granted a Vokey wedge "feels" better than most, but after reading various articles, I guess I should be considering bounce.  What is bounce and should bounce be a concern throughout my wedges.  I currently use 3 wedges a pw, 52, and 56.

    Hey Bob,

    I met you today at TPI and i have one question that i didnt get a chance to ask you.  I totally with what you had to say about bounce, bounce and more bounce.  So my question is, if i want to put a 56 back into my bag that i can also open up to act like a lob wedge without compromising too much bounce and that i wont blade when doing it on a tight lie, what would you recommend?  Any info would be greatly appreciated.  By the way, thank you again for coming out today and honoring us with your presence.

    As a high handicapper looking to improve my game, I am familiar with bounce and degrees in my wedges.  But if I am interested in a good wedge what attribute or spec should I consider that most of us "future most improved" (or even expert) golfers overlook or don't consider with as much weight as we should?   What is the biggest mistake we make when picking a wedge?

  9. Robert Sellman

    Hey I know you play golf so what are your wedge specifications?

  10. Robert Sellman

    Hi Mr. Vokey,

    Here's my question.  

    Can the degree of bounce on a wedge reduce or increase the overall distance that a player can hit a wedge?? If yes, how does this work??

    I look forward to hearing from you!
