On episode 352 of the Worldwide Golf Shops Insider Podcast, we sit down with Master Wedge Craftsman, Bob Vokey and the Marketing Director for Vokey Wedges, Corey Gerrard to chat about the all-new Titleist Vokey SM9 Wedges.
Bob discusses what the players brought to the table in helping them design the Titleist Vokey SM9 Wedges, coining the Tour Pros as “the best R&D team in the game.” Corey goes through all of the grind options available in the Titleist Vokey SM9 Wedge and how important it is to find the right grind for your game. They also discussed how grooves also got re-worked a bit to help each player and the importance of custom fitting.
SM9 wedges offer several loft, grind and bounce combinations
Titleist’s Vokey SM9 wedges help golfers improve in the three areas that Master Craftsman Bob Vokey says are key to great wedge play. Those include shot versatility, distance and trajectory control, and maximum spin. To get the job done, the SM9 offers the ultimate in optionality with Titleist’s most complete lineup of loft, grind and bounce combinations.
Versatile, accurate, and forgiving, the SM9 is available in six grind options and 23 different models ranging in lofts from 46-62 degrees for precision fitting. “It sounds simple, but having the correct wedge and knowing when to use it has a direct impact on scoring,” said Vokey. “
The most important thing for golfers at every level is to know when and where to use the variety of wedges in their bag. That can be achieved by being properly fit based on swing and style of play, and understanding the roles for each.” The SM9 also features sharper grooves in the club face for maximum spin, along with finish options such as Tour Chrome, Brushed Steel, and Jet Black.
