I have just picked up these unbranded wedges from the Tom Morris Golf Shop , St Andrews.
I know this shop commission some items from fairly upmarket manufacturers, looking at the finish and shape of these I wonder if they could be Yururi or maybe Vega or at least from their source?
Any thoughts ?

Thank you , yes I agree having looked at Vega fonts etc. Very pleased at £50 each , and I prefer the St Andrews crest to the vega graphics which don’t suit my eye for some reason.

Thanks , they are nice wedges . I rarely hit these with a full swing , more for “around the green” so the shafts are  probably wasted on me . They feel great for short game shots so far , so good .

Have since seen the same heads with “Sunningdale” and “Close House” logos , same Shimada shafts too . So obviously Vega offer some sort of high end custom service to golf clubs  .  It’s tasteful too!
