I picked up a 3 piece set of Adams Tom Watson signature wedges on a whim. I am not sure when exactly these came out but there is a joint Yes! and Adams logo on the box. It seems like there are so many different sets of these Watson wedges so they are hard to date.Adams acquired Yes! in 2011, so I believe they would be conforming- can anyone confirm?

Also, I am not sure if these have Dynamic Gold shafts or something else. The shafts seem lightly roughter/grittier to the touch than the Dynamic Gold, but not entirely sure if this isn't mental, and I don't have a DG wedge shaft to compare to right now. These have a custom Tom Watson shaft sticker near the grip with 8 steps. Looking at the Golfworks site it seems like Adams has also used Apollo shafts in their value wedge sets.

Here is what these wedges look like:

Not sure what sort of tournaments you play in but, I know I don't have to worry about conforming grooves until 2024. And that includes the state tournaments I play in here in CT.

I found a couple DG wedge shafts S200 and S300 and the steps didn't look the same, along with the overall finish and glare looking a bit odd. Guessing they are some sort of Apollo shafts after all.
