Each of Titleist’s Vokey Design Spin Milled 5 wedges are now available in “Raw,’’ a popular finish among PGA Tour players.
Previously available only through the Titleist Tour Van or Vokey Tour Department, Vokey Design SM5 Raw wedges can be ordered and customized through WedgeWorks on Vokey.com.
“Raw means there is no additional finish applied to the wedge, which is made of 8620 carbon steel,” said Master Craftsman Bob Vokey. “It has what I like to call a ‘satin’ appearance that will start to rust after some use.
“On tour, the Raw heads give us the flexibility to grind wedges based on a player’s needs. But guys just love the look of that raw steel – some players like it even more as it rusts, kind of like a trusty hammer or another tool. These are their scoring tools.”
Jordan Spieth, the reigning Masters and U.S. Open champion, has used Vokey Design wedges since his junior golf days. Spieth now carries four Vokey SM5 Raw models (46º F, 52º F, 56º S and 60º L).
Vokey Design SM5 Raw wedges are offered in four lofts from 54º to 60º and three of Vokey’s most popular sole grinds – S, M and K. In total, there are 10 loft/bounce/grind combinations. Among the models is the 56•10º S grind, played by Spieth and many tour players around the world.
As part of WedgeWorks, every SM5 Raw wedge (suggested retail price $180 plus customization) can be customized, including personalized stamping in up to six characters and one of 12 paintfill colors. Golfers can also choose from a selection of shafts, grips, shaft bands and ferrules.
Personalized hand-stamping is available in up to six letters and/or numbers and one of 12 paintfill colors. Characters are stamped in one of three styles – Straight, Freestyle or Snow (two-character limit).
Golfers can also choose from seven different custom shaftbands and three ferrule options.
BV custom grips, available in a variety of textures and colors to match a player’s look and feel preferences, are exclusive to WedgeWorks.
A high-performance shaft matrix includes wedge-specific shafts such as the Dynamic Gold Spinner and KBS Hi-Rev. The full complement of the Titleist custom shaft matrix is also available, including graphite and lightweight shafts. WedgeWorks wedges can be laser etched on the shaft with up to 20 characters or numbers, offering an easy way to highlight a birthday, event or a player’s full name.
All Vokey Design wedges can be adjusted for length, loft and lie angle. Weight porting on the back of the wedge to dial in a specific swingweight is also available.
