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

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.

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.”
