Vokey Spin Milled 5 (SM5) wedges are the best performing wedges in the game, a result of Master Craftsman Bob Vokey’s decades of research and collaborating with the world’s best players, such as Adam Scott, Steve Stricker and Jason Dufner. Since 2004, Vokey Design wedges have been the #1 wedge on the PGA Tour and the most played wedge at every level of competitive golf.
“I’ve always said I have the best R&D facility in the world – the PGA Tour,” Vokey said. “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 shots around the green and get up and down more.”
Titleist and their new Vokey SM5 wedges are giving golfers more tour-preferred grind and bounce options than ever before, as in 21 different loft/bounce/grind combinations and six tour-inspired sole grinds, as well as more spin from their larger third-generation Spin Milled grooves. Two different performance configurations of the new Spin Milled TX3 grooves feature 17 precise, individually cut and 100-percent inspected grooves that continue to push the conforming limits of effective edge radius for increased backspin. With more bounce and sole grind options, as part of an industry-leading model matrix, the new Vokey SM5 wedges provide the versatility for improved shotmaking, giving players the confidence to execute more shots around the green.
The Vokey SM5 Gold Nickel utilizes a double nickel layer process to help create better feel, rust prevention and durability.
