Titleist Introduces new Vokey SM9 wedges

Titleist Vokey SM9 wedges
RRP: £169

Titleist has unveiled its latest Vokey wedge, the SM9, described by master craftsman Bob Vokey as the “ultimate in optionality”.

According to Bob, the three keys to great wedge play are shot versatility, distance and trajectory control, and maximum spin – a set of characteristics used as the basis for designing the latest version of the PGA Tour’s most popular wedge since 2004. 

“It sounds simple but having the correct wedge and knowing when to use it has a direct impact on scoring performance,” says Bob. “The most important thing for golfers at every level is to know when and where to use the variety of wedges in their bag. That can be achieved by being properly fit based on swing and style of play, and understanding the roles for each wedge.”

The SM9 wedges are available in six grind options and a total of 23 different models ranging in lofts from 46° to 62°. The wedges are available in three finishes – Tour Chrome, Brushed Steel and Jet Black – with a Raw finish available as a custom option. The wedges also feature improvements on the groundbreaking Progressive Centre of Gravity design introduced with the Vokey SM8 as well as progressive hosel lengths to help raise the centre of gravity in the higher lofts. A range of customisation options are also available through WedgeWorks.
