Vokey releases Links K on WedgeWorks

Published

on

Vokey’s new Links K wedges (available in 58 and 60 degree) are inspired by the conditions common in links golf, and crafted with the expertise of the company’s master craftsman Bob Vokey and Aaron Dill. They are the result of the pair’s combined decades of experience building wedges for many of the best golfers in the world.

The Links K is a low-bounce version of the company’s K Grind wedge, and has a wide sole and low effective bounce (4 degrees) to help golfers play shots from the firm, tight fairways and deep bunkers that are typical in The Open Championship and in links-style golf.

The wedges use Vokey’s Spin Milled TX3 grooves, and have a raw finish that will rust over time. They can be customized for $275 each (RH only) and are available only through WedgeWorks.

    Want pro equipment without a pro card? You’re going to pay. Want a deal? Try Walmart or Sports Authority.

    Does seem a bit steep, $275 plus if you upgrade the shaft etc etc probably over $300 a club. If you have money and want to spend it who cares about price. Those who care don’t have enough money lol

    I liked the idea up until the whole $275 came around.

    Any chance of releasing a wedge for Saturdays and one for Sundays?

    It’s never ending, surely the money would be better spent on a golf lesson or two…

      Was thinking the same thing, funny how driving irons haven’t had a mention this time around. Wonder if what it will be next year.

      Ever looked at Tourspecgolf.com? $275 is nothing.

        Not exactly. The typical JDM wedge goes for around 150-160 USD. Very few are over 200.

Inside Collin Morikawa’s recent golf ball, driver, 3-wood, and “Proto” iron changes

Published

on

As you probably know by now, Collin Morikawa switched putters after the first round of The Masters, and he ultimately went on to finish T3.

The putter was far from the only change he made last week, however, and his bag is continuing to change this week at the 2024 RBC Heritage.

On the range of The Masters, Morikawa worked closely with Adrian Reitveld, TaylorMade’s Senior Manager of Tour at TaylorMade, to find the perfect driver and 3-wood setups.

Morikawa started off 2024 by switching into TaylorMade’s Qi10 Max driver, but since went back to his faithful TaylorMade SIM – yes, the original SIM from 2020. Somehow, some way, it seems Morikawa always ends up back in that driver, which he used to win the 2020 PGA Championship, and the 2021 Open Championship.

At The Masters, however, Rietveld said the duo found the driver head that allowed “zero compromise” on Morikawa’s preferred fade flight and spin. To match his preferences, they landed on a TaylorMade Qi10 LS 9-degree head, and the lie angle is a touch flatter than his former SIM.

“It’s faster than his gamer, and I think what we found is it fits his desired shot shape, with zero compromise” Rietveld told GolfWRX.com on Wednesday at the RBC Heritage.

Then, to replace his former SIM rocket 3-wood, Morikawa decided to switch into the TaylorMade Qi10 core model 13.5-degree rocket head, with an adjustable hosel.

“He likes the spin characteristics of that head,” Rietveld said. “Now he’s interesting because with Collin, you can turn up at a tournament, and you look at his 3-wood, and he’s changed the setting. One day there’s more loft on it, one day there’s less loft on it. He’s that type of guy. He’s not scared to use the adjustability of the club.

“And I think he felt our titanium head didn’t spin as low as his original SIM. So we did some work with the other head, just because he liked the feel of it. It was a little high launching, so we fit him into something with less loft. It’s a naughty little piece of equipment.” 

In addition to the driver and fairway wood changes, Morikawa also debuted his new “MySymbol” jersey No. 5 TP5x golf ball at The Masters. Morikawa’s choice of symbols is likely tied to his love of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team.

Not enough changes for you? There’s one more.

On Wednesday at the 2024 RBC Heritage, Morikawa was spotted with a new TaylorMade “Proto” 4-iron in the bag. If you recall, it’s the same model that Rory McIlroy debuted at the 2024 Valero Texas Open.

According to Morikawa, the new Proto 4-iron will replace his old P-770 hollow-bodied 4-iron.

“I used to hit my P-770 on a string, but sometimes the distance would be a little unpredictable,” Morikawa told GolfWRX.com. “This one launches a touch higher, and I feel I can predict the distance better. I know Rory replaced his P-760 with it. I’m liking it so far.”
