By: | Wed 22 Jan 2014 | Comments


Titleist have announced the launch of a new range of wedges, the Vokey Spin Milled 5 wedges deliver more spin and Titleist Vokey SM5more types of shots, providing golfers with more ways to hit it close and shoot lower scores. Vokey Spin Milled 5 (SM5) wedges are Titleist's best ever performing wedges, a result of Master Craftsman Bob Vokey’s decades of research and collaborations with the world’s best players, such as Adam Scott, Steve Stricker and Jason Dufner. 

The new wesges have been precisely designed and manufactured using proprietary Spin Milled technology, Vokey SM5 wedges aim to provide a distinct performance advantage through new, deeper TX3 grooves, tour-driven shapes and the a large range of groove and bounce configurations. 

New TX3 grooves, with seven percent larger groove volume and two performance configurations, 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. 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.

For years, Vokey and his team of craftsmen, including Vokey Tour representative Aaron Dill, have utilised tour player input and feedback to produce the largest and most effective range of bounce and sole grind options in the game. 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.
Vokey states, “I’ve always said I have the best R&D facility in the world – the PGA Tour. 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.”

SM5 wedges are available in three new finishes – Spin Milled 5 wedges are available in three new finish options: Tour Chrome, Gold Nickel and Raw Black. The new, brighter Tour Chrome has a dark blast face for better contrast and framing, a soft nickel layer base for feel and rust prevention, and a thin top chrome layer for durability. Gold Nickel utilises a double nickel layer process to help create better feel, rust prevention and durability. Raw Black, previously a tour-only finish, utilises a QPQ process to create a thin protection layer for feel and durability. Raw Black will rust during the course of play.

Vokey Spin Milled 5 wedges are available in golf shops beginning 14th March 2014 with an SRP of £103
