When & why: wedges
When do you pull out your high-lofted wedge? Why are you pulling it out? We’re diving deep into these questions, so read on to get the answers you need.
Things we were never taught in school include how tax works, how to get a mortgage and, of course, how bounce & grind work in your wedges. We’ve got our priorities straight and we’re here to help you with the most important of those…
Finding the right wedge grind for your game involves knowing your swing type. Do you sweep through the ball with barely any divot or are you taking half the turf with you? It’s also worth considering the course conditions, because this will change with the seasons and you need to be sure you still have all the shots you need in your locker come rain or shine.
A wedge with the right grind will work for you rather than against you, and the same goes for bounce. You’ve probably heard Tour players say ‘bounce is your friend’ but what does that even mean? The degree of bounce is all about lifting or lowering the leading edge to the ground to help you get smooth turf interaction and the cleanest possible contact on the ball. Bounce & grind come as a pair; working together to help you hit the ball cleanly from all lies in all conditions.
Titleist Vokey SM8 wedges are a perfect example of this. A whopping SIX different grinds – each designed for unique performance – means you’ll always have a club in your bag to execute the shot you’re picturing in your mind. Whether it’s the traditional F-Grind for full shots or the K-Grind for expert bunker play and short-game magic, you’ll have the tools for the job.
Every single wedge in the Vokey SM8 collection boasts Tour-proven performance, while we can tailor them to your game and give you the best possible results thanks to our expert fitting service. It’s a no-brainer.
