How do you improve on the number 1 wedge on the PGA Tour? Vokey's designs are built for, and in collaboration with, some of the best players in the world, including Adam Scott, Steve Stricker, Jordan Spieth and Jason Dufner. The Titleist SM5 wedges are desired, everyone will be able to get it.
Vokey says the new Titleist Vokey Wedges is more compact that before and offers more spin. He has always said I have the best R&D facility in the world – the PGA Tour. He worked closely with our team of craftsmen and engineers to apply everything I’ve learned from the best players in the world to Spin Milled 5.
Titleist say that players will experience up to 400 rpm more spin with the lower lofted wedges, and up to 500 more with the higher lofted models. Vokey spoke with Tour players to learn about what it is they like to see behind the ball around the greens. The new design incorporates a rounder toe profile, as well as a higher toe and heel height.
With wedges, it’s never one size fits all. Wedges are required to hit many different types of shots. And every player has a different technique, a different style. That’s why we have so many options. It’s important that players see an authorised Titleist fitter to get fit for their Titleist wedges, so they know they’re playing a setup that fits their game.
Each sole grind is only suited to certain lofts, thus the SM5 is available in 21 different loft, bounce and grind options. My favourite shots are those low spinners, those two hop-and-stop pitch shots from 30-40 yards – they’re awesome with the new SM5 wedges.
