Tour Approved Vokey T Grind Wedge is Now Available
The hugely popular Vokey T Grind, a favourite with tour players such as Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, is now available for golfers to purchase through WedgeWorks.
Inspired by Bob Vokey’s work with one of the game’s all-time best wedge players, the T Grind was designed for great hands and a vivid short-game imagination. Available in 58º and 60º lofts, it is ideal for a shallow angle of attack in firm conditions, with low bounce and a narrow crescent surface. Compared to Vokey’s L grind, it has a wider back flange which allows for lower measured bounce.
“Wedge play is an art, and the T Grind brings out the best in the artist,” Vokey said. “The leading edge stays low to the playing surface as the wedge is rotated which allows you to hit a variety of shots from tight lies. This is the wedge that really made Vokey Grinds an important part of our process - and still to this day is a great option.”
T GRIND ON TOUR
Along with Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, players such as Cam Smith, Will Zalatoris, Cameron Young and Webb Simpson have all recently trusted the T Grind in their lob wedge setups. According to Vokey Tour Representative Aaron Dill, consistency of contact was key to Cameron Young’s move to a T Grind.
“Cameron’s previous model caused the ball to come out inconsistently, meaning he’d have to compensate with technique,” said Dill. “As we moved into T Grind, it was immediately clear that the sole was reacting better on those open-faced greenside shots, with more speed as it went through the turf.”
The T Grind continues to grow in popularity on tour, especially in Europe where players are often faced with links-style conditions.
“I’ve had players say they feel like they can hit any shot with the T Grind wedge,” said Will Harvey, Vokey’s European Tour Rep. “The combination of the forward bounce for low pitch shots and the grind for the soft control shots is something needed with the vast amount of shots required on links or firmer course set ups.”
- Forward Centre of Gravity progression - The CG has been raised vertically by adding weight to the topline design, where a tapered pad at the back of the toe helps align the CG properly without being visible from the playing position.
- New patented spin milled process for maximum spin - A new spin milled cutting process in the SM9 models - which includes tightening our allowable tolerances - produces consistently sharper grooves wedge after wedge, resulting in higher, more consistent spin.
