Titleist Vokey SM9 Wedge
The Titleist Vokey SM9 range of wedges represents their most technologically advanced design to date, and they have been created to provide a lower flight with higher spin. The performance is further enhanced by the variety of grinds available to the consumer, with each one providing distinctive features and benefits to allow for fine tuning of your wedge game in a way previously only available to tour players.
The Spin Milled grooves that have been present on all Vokey designs in recent years have been significantly enhanced on the Titleist Vokey SM9 range of wedges. A new cutting process has been developed which has allowed Titleist to tighten their tolerances and produce consistently sharper grooves on every single wedge. Micro gooves situated in between each main groove have been added to the face, improving the level of spin and control on partial shots.
The durability of grooves on a wedge is of crucial importance as it allows the wedge to continue performing as should for a more extended period of time. Titleist have ensured that this is the case with the SM9’s by applying a proprietary heat treatment to the impact area which doubles the durability of the grooves without detracting from the famous Vokey feel. The grooves are also designed to offer optimal performance on individual lofts and finishes. The 46° to 54° wedges feature narrower and deeper grooves whilst the 56° to 62° options have wider and shallower grooves.
The Titleist Vokey SM8 was the first wedge to feature the ground-breaking Progressive Centre of Gravity design that placed the CG in a position that hovered in front of the wedge face. The SM9 design has been produced with further innovations in this area and sees the CG raised vertically by adding weight to the topline design. A tapered pad at the back of the toe is used to align the CG correctly but crucially, this technology is not visible at address. Progressive hosel lengths have also been employed to raise the CG in the higher lofted wedges. Golfers can expect to find hugely improved distance and trajectory control married to enhanced stability leading to shots that consistently finish closer to the flag.
Aesthetically the Titleist Vokey SM9 wedges deliver a wonderfully traditional shape that isn’t too much of a departure from the SM8. The clean, crisp lines that greet the golfer’s eyes at address are sure to appeal to both elite players and the average weekend golfer. Vokey wedges have always had a tremendous amount of bag appeal and the SM9 is no different. Regardless of which finish you plump for, a golf bag that holds a selection of SM9 wedges will be a thing of immense beauty.
The SM9 range has an enormous variety of different lofts and grinds that allows you to select the perfect wedge for your ability, play style and the course conditions that are most prevalent in your area. Bob Vokey takes a huge amount of pride in providing the consumer with a host of different options, with each one designed for a specific purpose. The craftmanship and attention to detail that Bob Vokey and Titleist use when creating new ranges in precisely the reason that they continue to be the #1 wedge in golf.

TaylorMade Milled Grind Hi-Toe 3 Golf Wedge
Both the original TaylorMade Hi-Toe and its successor, the Hi-Toe Raw, were incredibly popular as more and more golfers tuned in to the benefits of full face grooves. The taller toe end of the clubhead also helped to increase confidence on those trickier shots around the greens that golfers are faced with on a daily basis. TaylorMade have now release the latest version of this stellar wedge and it would appear that they have, once again, hit a home run.
The TaylorMade Milled Grind Hi-Toe 3 Golf Wedges have been constructed from a soft 8620 carbon steel, which ensures a level of precision is achieved where it is needed most. TaylorMade’s milling process serves to maximise consistency, with each sole crafted for predictable and repeatable turf interaction. As with previous models, the Toe section of these wedges is taller than on a standard wedge and allows for improved launch results and higher spin levels. Full length scoring lines can be found on the 56°, 58° & 60° wedges further enhancing spin and allowing for greater control and versatility when the clubface is rotated open on finesse shots.
The Centre of Gravity has been moved closer to the face through the use of weight pad, strategically placed in the toe area which also helps produce the premium feel that Hi-Toe wedges have become renowned for. Extra texture has been added to the clubface through the use of milled ribs positioned between the full grooves which serves to increase spin and overall performance on the shorter, more delicate shots around the green. ZTP RAW grooves ensure than control is maintained on shots when the lie is less than perfect, allowing you to remain aggressive when playing from the rough. Multiple sole options are available to allow golfers to choose the most suitable for the turf conditions they normally play, and for the style of swing they employ.
If you are looking for new wedges to take your scoring game to the next level, then we can highly recommend investing in the new Hi-Toe 3 wedges from TaylorMade. They are everything a premium wedge should be, great looking, high spinning and with an ultra premium feel. Superb!
