Titleist adds Vokey K Grind (54º and 56º) to WedgeWorks lineup

Published

on

Building on the popularity of the SM7 K grind, Bob Vokey has crafted a new WedgeWorks K grind in 54° and 56° lofts. The WedgeWorks K Grind features increased bounce and enhanced camber, making the new K Grind Vokey’s highest bounce wedge option at 16°.

According to the company, this wedge is ideal for the player that uses their 54° or 56° as their main go-to short game tool, as well as their primary bunker club. The K grind is well-suited for a player looking to hit both square and open-face shots.

BOB VOKEY: “The K Grind is one of my favorites, and it has been a great lob wedge. But now we’re seeing a trend on tour of players using more 54° and 56° wedges greenside, where versatility is key. Wedges at this loft have to work incredibly well for full swing shots, particularly controlling trajectory, and this is why the measured bounce is 16°.”

“But I’m particularly excited about the enhanced camber of this wedge. The camber allows the high measured bounce to be much more versatile from tight lies and greenside shots. We tightened the radius from the leading edge to the trailing edge, so what a golfer will see and feel is the club gliding through the turf and sand.”

AARON DILL (Vokey Wedge Tour Rep): “On Tour, we see more and more players discovering how well the sand wedge performs, leading to consistency of spin, trajectory, and better misses.”

The new Vokey WedgeWorks K Grind will be available on Wednesday, June 13 on Vokey.com starting at $195 – base price includes up to 10 character stamping (straight or freestyle), custom shaft band and BV Wing grip. They are available in either a Brushed Chrome or Oil Can finish.

Available Models: Right-handed: Brushed Chrome: 54°, 56°. Oil Can: 54°, 56°. Left-handed: Brushed Chrome: 54°, 56°.

Mizuno announces new JPX 919 Tour Forged irons are coming August 29 (via cryptic Twitter post)

Published

on

While cryptic, it does appear Mizuno is announcing via Twitter that its new JPX 919 Tour irons are coming on 8/29/18. One would have to assume that means they will be launched on 8/29, not actually hitting retail on 8/29, but that remains to be seen.

We recently spotted a number of new irons on the USGA conforming list, including the JPX919 Tour irons pictured above, JPX919 Forged and JPX919 Hot Metal irons from Mizuno. So it’s likely that the JPX 919 Tour Forged irons won’t be alone in the JPX 919 family when they hit retail.

The JPX 919 Tour iron specifically pictured in the Tweet above seems to be the replacement for Mizuno’s JPX 900 Tour irons that Brooks Koepka used to win this year’s U.S. Open and PGA Championship. Learn more about the original JPX 900 Tour design from Mizuno’s Chris Voshal on our Gear Dive podcast.

Diving a bit deeper into the picture from Mizuno’s Tweet, it appears the JPX919 Tour irons will utilize Mizuno’s familiar Grain Flow forging, and will be made from 1025E; that’s based on the hosel stamping that says “GF Forged HD 1025E.”

Stay tuned for more info from Mizuno.
