Hey Team Titleist,
The day has finally come - new SM7 Vokey Design Wedges are in golf shops, today! As we've learned, the fastest way to a better short game is through a wedge fitting. Developed through his collaboration with the world’s best shot makers, Bob Vokey's six tour-proven sole grinds – F, S, M, K, L and the new D grind – allows golfers of all skill levels to be precisely fit for their swing type, shot making style and course conditions.
If you can't head to a golf shop today, head to vokey.com and try their wedge selection tool, which goes through a variety of questions about your short game to help you find the best setup for your game.
In the meantime, let's get to know the six tour-proven sole grinds a little better and let us know which setup you end up with this season:
Voke’s favorite, the M Grind is designed for players that like to rotate the club face open and closed to manufacture shots around the green. Ideal for players with a shallower, more sweeping swing type who play shots from a variety of club face positions.
The K Grind is the highest bounce wedge in the lineup, and is the ultimate bunker club. The K Grind is a wide, full sole wedge with enhanced camber to make it forgiving from a variety of sand and turf conditions.
Simple mechanics are best with the S Grind for square faced shots with a touch more versatility than the F grind.
The L Grind features a narrow crescent shape allowing maximum green side versatility. Perfect for firm conditions and designed for skilled players who frequently open or close the club face to create shots around the green.
For players who prefer a traditional wedge sole, we present the F Grind, an all-purpose grind that is particularly suited for full shots and shots hit with a square face. The F Grind is the most played sand wedge on Tour.
Finally, the newest member of the grind family, the D Grind is the player’s high bounce wedge. High measured bounce with the crescent shape of the M grind is ideal players with a steeper angle of attack who play with a variety of club face positions.
