Every other year when the Ryder Cup arrives, 24 players have to leave aside their individual play and come together to represent their country. Not just players but fans join hands too, rooting for their teams together, to bring the cup home. This brings along tremendous support from everyone, including Vokey Design’s Aaron Dill, who customized special wedges for Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.

Who exactly is Aaron Dill?

Dill, as per Vokey’s site, is the man behind every Vokey wedge on the Tour. Though he studied for careers in golf, he ended up making his name in club building and fitting. Their brand helps a player focus on what one needs, explaining wedge grind options and how it can help lower one’s score.
