Titleist’s Vokey SM9 to make debut at Kapalua

Titleist took to their social media handles to reveal the big news that the latest editions of their Vokey wedges will be unveiled at Kapalua. They wrote, “Follow along as players get their first opportunity to game the new models in competition at Kapalua.”

Giving an insight, they wrote on their Instagram, “Master Craftsman Bob Vokey and @VokeyWedgeRep, working alongside Vokey’s team of engineers, have spent the last two years designing prototypes and testing them with the world’s best players, pushing forward in their relentless mission to craft better performing and better feeling wedges.”

According to Titleist, these have been the most used wedges on the PGA Tour since 2004. So, this certainly is big, as this could become the next big thing in the professional world. The new wedges do not stray far from the previous ones and fans even pointed out the lack of new design. However, most were excited at this announcement.
