These 2012 Vokey Ryder Cup wedges were given to Vokey loyalists who qualified for the Ryder Cup at this week’s Tour Championship presented by Coca-Cola at East Lake Golf Club.

They are Vokey TVD 54-degree wedges with Black Oxide finishes. The U.S. wedges have Limited Edition U.S. Ryder Cup Dynamic Gold  shafts and Golf Pride Patriot Grips. The European Wedges have Limited Edition European Ryder Cup Dynamic Gold Shafts and blue and gold Golf Pride Vokey VDR grips.

“We wanted to do something special for both sides, U.S. and Europe,” said David Neville, marketing manager at Vokey. “But they’re not playing with these. They are commemorative.”

Ryder Cup team members not playing this week at the Tour Championship will receive their commemorative Vokey wedges next week at Medinah.
