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°.

Forum Thread of the Day: Cobra’s new King F9 “Speedback” driver?

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day revolves around information on Cobra’s latest releases. News of Cobra’s King CB/MB irons, which were created in tandem with Rickie Fowler, were released a couple of days ago, and in the thread titled “Cobra ’19 News?”, GolfWRX members got a peak at what else Cobra has lined up for its followers.

GolfWRX member cbuescher has revealed some fascinating information on possible future Cobra products, dishing out details on what are apparently Cobra’s new F9 drivers.

“F9 drivers look great.  No more F8+…..just one head with three different loft options.  Found out that the old F7/F8 adapters will fit new heads, but new adapters are labeled differently.  They now say STD, +1, -1, +1.5, etc.  The three different loft options will have the standard lofts as 9.0, 10.5, or 12. Drivers and fairways have a similar look as before but they’ve added two “turbulators” on the back of the crown. The driver will have 2 color options.”

GolfWRX forum members were also privy to information gleaned from cbuescher on Cobra’s new fairway wood and hybrid line:

“Fairway woods look almost identical to F8 with the milled face added this year.  Hybrids are a black matte finish and look much better IMO than last year.  Several of you asked about the KING Forged iron.  Unfortunately this club has gone away…they felt like Forged Tech was a better fit for that gap and the King Forged was not needed anymore.”
