New for 2022, Titleist launches Vokey Design SM9 wedges

Published

on

Titleist has introduced its new Vokey Design SM9 wedges, which will hit retail on March 11.

The SM9 wedges include six grind options and a total of 23 different models ranging in lofts from 46 to 62 degrees for precision fitting.

“It sounds simple, but having the correct wedge and knowing when to use it has a direct impact on scoring performance. The most important thing for golfers at every level is to know when and where to use the variety of wedges in their bag. That can be achieved by being properly fit based on swing and style of play, and understanding the roles for each.” – Master craftsman Bob Vokey

A new Spin Milled cutting process in the SM9 models – which includes tightening the allowable tolerances – produces sharper grooves wedge after wedge in design to provide higher, more consistent spin. Each groove on every head is 100% inspected for conformity to the rules of golf.

Micro-grooves are individually cut in between grooves, which helps maximize spin on partial shots, while a proprietary heat treatment is applied to the impact area to help double the durability of the groove without impacting feel.

Each groove is individually cut based on loft and finish with the lower lofts (46-54 degrees) designed with narrower, deeper grooves and higher lofts (56-62 degrees) with wider, shallower grooves.

The new SM9 maintains the forward CG – a position that actually hovers in front of the wedge face – in design to produce a solid feeling wedge that squares up at impact for more consistent results.

The CG has been raised vertically by adding weight to the topline design, where a tapered pad at the back of the toe helps align the CG properly without being visible from the playing position.

In addition, progressive hosel lengths are also used to help raise the CG in the higher lofts, particularly 58-62-degrees in design to improve distance and trajectory control and increase stability for more consistency.
