The Vokey division of Titleist has expanded their wedge line, which is already the most played on the professional tours, with customizations now available in the new SM9 series starting with the finishes. There are three stock finishes, Jet Black, Tour Chrome and Brushed Steel with an optional Raw finish for an additional $46.

Grooves have undergone an upgrade as well with a new Spin Milling process that includes microgrooves designed to enhance distance and spin control. Customizations include toe engravings, character stamping and paint filling.

“It is important to fit your wedges to your swing type, style of play and course conditions,” said Chief Designer Bob Vokey.

“That selection process should begin by determining the proper grind for the shots you hit most. The correct grind provides the best turf interaction, contact and shot performance.”
