Vokey SM9 wedges begin tour seeding this week

Published

on

Update 7:00 p.m.: Max Homa and Garrick Higgo posted shots of SM9 wedges in their Instagram stories.


Titleist announced today the Vokey Design SM9 will begin tour seeding this week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Maui.

While the company hasn’t provided any tech details, a release indicated, “Master Craftsman Bob Vokey and Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill, working alongside Vokey’s team of engineers, have spent the last two years designing prototypes and testing them with the world’s best players, pushing forward in their relentless mission to craft better performing and better feeling wedges.”

We’ll be sure to get you a list of players who are putting the SM9 in Hawaii this week as well as any additional player feedback we can round up.

Titleist tweeted the following.

A blown-up version of the photo Vokey provided makes the shaping differences — softer, more rounded a bit more SM7-like — between the SM8 and SM9 clear, as well as adjustments to the graphics.

Most noticeably, gone is the recessed bar in the middle of the rear of the wedge. Whether it’s a thin slot in that position on the club or a stamped line paintfilled black remains to be seen.

For reference, Vokey’s SM8 wedges, below.

Most forgiving one-piece forged irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the most forgiving one piece forged irons on the market. WRXer ‘JStang’ lays out the criteria, saying: “I’m talking no slots, injected goo, tungsten plugs etc. Just a good old solid chunk of metal.”

And our members have been sharing their best picks in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Jmccas: “New Level 623CB is a single piece forging.”
  • brucedeuce: “Zx7. Not sure anything compares in a one-piece forging.”
  • drumdude96: “I play Adams A4 forged irons, and they are incredibly forgiving for a one-piece forging. They’re certainly not the latest and greatest, but I love them. And I get really good distance out of them too.”
  • CR1977: “Without tungsten? Wilson Staff Blades are pretty forgiving for a simple chunk of metal.”

Published

on

A thrilling finish, a popular winner, and an awesome pair of kicks with a very cool backstory — the FedEx St. Jude Championship certainly delivered.

Will Zalatoris (see his winning WITB here) bettered Sepp Straka in a playoff with FootJoy Premiere Series Tarlow with St. Jude MyJoys print on foot. Designed by St. Jude patients from around the world that features colorful, the shoes feature creative images of Earth and messages of hope.

You can get a better look at the pattern via FootJoy’s tweet below.

A bit more on the Tarlow’s features, courtesy of FootJoy.

PREMIUM CONSTRUCTION: Hand-selected, premium full grain leather from Pittards offers unparalleled beauty, fit, and resistance to stretching. Calfskin leather detailing delivers an iconic look for players with a discerning sense of style.

PERFORMANCE OUTSOLE: The VersaTrax+ outsole is engineered with traction elements to create an outsole that is perfect for on course performance. Translucent rubber traction elements offer a high end look and feel while maximizing traction with each step you take. The unique anti-channeling traction pattern is designed for grip from any lie or angle.

TOUR-PROVEN TRACTION: Premiere Series is equipped with low profile spikes that deliver stability and support from the moment you step foot onto the course. Pulsar cleats by Softspikes® are the #1 selling cleat in golf and the overwhelming choice of touring professionals worldwide.

LASER STREET FIT: Offers a full rounded toe character, standard fit across forefoot and instep, with a slightly narrow heel.

INSERT SYSTEM: The insert system refers to the type of receptacle found on the sole of your golf shoes. The insert system also determines the type of removable cleat that will fit your golf shoes. This model utilizes the Fast Twist 3.0 cleat system with Pulsar LP cleats. The Fast Twist system was the first ever 3-click insert system on the market. The locking post design secures each cleat with consistent torque for balanced performance.

FootJoy’s Premiere Series Tarlow golf shoes retail for $199.99 are available in sizes 7-15.
