Tour Treatment: Did you know you can order a custom Vokey?

Published

GolfWRX Staff 7/2012

First off… for those that didn’t know- YOU CAN CUSTOM ORDER A VOKEY WEDGE!!! Here is a link to the Vokey Wedgeworks micro site where you can customize you own. Now this isn’t an advertisement. However this is an article to make golfers aware that we can get the same treatment that only tour pros could historically receive.

In the summer of 2010, Vokey.com launched WedgeWorks, which allowed the masses to purchase Vokey Tour Van Design (TVD) wedges directly from the source in Mr. Vokey’s facility in Carlsbad, Ca. Special grinds, exclusive finishes, limited releases Tour-issue heads and unique engraving became available to all golfers. WedgeWorks is unlike the Scotty Cameron custom shop, in that it is not just a place to send a club for reconditioning or customization, although those services are available too. Through WedgeWorks, Vokey.com is able to release many prototype and special edition wedges to the public, as well as exclusive models that cannot be purchased at most stores.

Now here is the wedge I just received. This wedge is sick. TVD52 w/ Black Oxide, easyyy (my GolfWRX screen name) stamping, snow no fill. Also Vokey did a special touch for me and added “GolfWRX” on the shaft.

Better than that the finish started to wear like I wanted it to on the face and looks better used. I will add some pics next week. We did an article about the Vokey Wedgeworks were you can get this done for yourself. Click here to see the article. But we don’t hear that much about it on WRX.

I am surprised how many of my friends that are gear heads don’t know that Wedgeworks is available for them. I am thinking of getting a 56* now.

I wish we could all design our favorite wedge and post pics here in this thread but it is to hard to do for many. I think you have to do a green dump to show the final pic of your design. Then attach the screen dump here.

Anyway I think Vokey did it right. Awesome service and this is not some info commercial. This is me being a equipment ho as I know how to do.

    Hi all,
    I am pretty new to GolfWRX but I am loving what I am seeing. I am after a little advice, I was looking to purchase new wedges but I am undecided between sm4 and TVD. As I live in the UK I am unable to try the TVD wedges before I order them from BV USA. Any advice would be much appreciated. Which wedges spin the most? And does anybody know if you can order a different bounce than stated on the form? Many thanks Lewis

    Marty-Current Vokey Design wedges do not fetuare grooves that will conform with the new regulation, however, we will offer new wedges that do. Keep in mind, also, that unless you plan to qualify and/or compete in elite-level professional events (i.e., PGA Tour, U.S. Open) in 2010, your current wedges will be legal for play until 2014, and possibly until 2024 depending on the types of tournaments in which you compete.

    I’ve been using the TVD’s all summer and I love them they are every thing I could want in a wedge.

2021 GolfWRX Holiday Gift Guide: Golf gifts for the Purist

Published

on

It’s that time of year again, GolfWRX members, the moment we start filling our wish lists with the golf gear we want this holiday season.

The GolfWRX Holiday Gift Guide was created to ensure that our readers give (and hopefully receive) the very best golf gifts on the planet. These gift ideas will suit any budget, and each item was hand-picked by our staff.

In an effort to provide more value and tailored recommendations, we’re targeting “the purist,” “the gearhead,” “the value seeker,” “the golfer looking to get better,” “the clothes horse,” and “the big spender.”

You know the purist by his/her love forged irons, natural fibers, and Golden Age golf courses.

Here are our best recommendations for “the purist” in your life.

The Making of Pacific Dunes by Tom Doak – $50

In The Making of Pacific Dunes, Doak shares his experience in building the second course at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. Doak recounts his journey from the first day, explaining how he found each hole and put the routing together, and what his crew did and didn’t do to build this “distractingly beautiful and unfailingly challenging golf course.”

Buy here.

Artisan Wedges – $300 each

As seen in the bag of the likes of Abraham Ancer on tour, Artisan wedges are handcrafted to fit the profile of each individual and are a must-have for all golf purists.

Wedges start at $300 each for a Satin raw finish, standard Dynamic Gold shaft and standard Tour Velvet grip, with a trip to Texas required for the fitting process which includes a morning or afternoon hitting balls with the Artisan team so that they can understand your short game in order to truly customize each wedge to your game.

Book here.

Titleist Pro V1, Pro V1x: $49.95

The No. 1 ball in golf, yes. Most widely played on the PGA Tour by a wide margin, yes — no doubt the performance of the Titleist Pro V1 is best-in-class. But for the purist, there’s nothing in the golf ball space quite so iconic as the “Titleist” script stamped on the Pro V1. 

Buy here.

Fore Ewe Headcover – $55

Purists will love For Ewe’s headcovers, which are all made from start to finish in Portland, Oregon using 100 percent wool yarn. All of the yarn is spun and double waxed to ensure that it knits smoothly and lasts, while each cone is skein dyed to make sure the colors are rich and consistent.

This holiday-themed set features a charcoal, dark red, and white color scheme with the covers starting from $55.

Buy here.

8″ Leather Mac Mackenzie Bag – $1,055

No purists collection is complete without a Mackenzie bag. The 8″ Leather Mac is made from navy leather, trimmed in red and white leather. The bag features a white & red split bottom and has an 8” opening with just the solo pocket.

Buy here.

The Golfer’s Journal: $75/year

Do you subscribe to The Golfer’s Journal? If you consider yourself a purist, it’s surprising if you don’t. And if you’re buying a gift for the purist in your life, TGJ is the perfect pick for superb reading material, best-in-the-golf-media photography, and of course, as a coffee table adornment that signals your aesthetic sensibilities are as high as your appreciation for our maddening game.

Buy here.

National Custom Works custom forged irons – Varies

Hand-ground from Japanese forgings by the legendary Don White, NCW’s entirely made-to-order blades have quickly become the purist’s gold — or steel — standard. And they’re not just for show; these things perform, as evidenced by Jason Dufner putting a set in play in 2018.
