New Vokey wedges from Titleist

Titleist has introduced new Vokey Spin Milled 5 Wedges which the company says deliver maximum spin with trajectory and distance control. Precisely designed and manufactured using proprietary spin milled technology, Vokey SM5 wedges provide a distinct performance advantage through new, deeper TX3 grooves, tour-driven shapes and an extensive range of bounce and grind options.

The new TX3 grooves have seven percent larger groove volume and two performance configurations to deliver maximum spin by channelling away grass and sand for improved contact between the ball and groove edge. Spin milled technology also provides trajectory and distance control through precisely milled grooves and machined face texture. Titleist says every SM5 wedge is milled to the tightest tolerance in the industry, with each groove individually cut to the maximum dimensions allowed by the Rules of Golf and 100 percent inspected. A localised, high frequency heat treatment to the face provides increased groove durability for longer spin retention over the life of the wedge.

Vokey SM5 wedges are available in 21 different loft/bounce/grind combinations and six tour-inspired sole grinds, appropriately slotted into low, mid and high bounce categories to fit all swing types, shot-making styles and short game conditions.

Bob Vokey stated, “ I 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. We’ve increased the spin. We’ve given players more control. And we’ve got a bounce and grind matrix that will provide the versatility and confidence to hit a variety of shots around the green and get up and down more.”

Vokey Spin Milled 5 wedges are available in three new finishes (Tour Chrome, Gold Nickel and Raw Black) from 14 March with an SRP of £103.
