Titleist introduces new Vokey Design SM6 Wedges
The new Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled 6 wedges establish a new performance standard by improving in the three key areas of wedge play: distance gapping, shot versatility and spin control.
Already the most played wedge model on the PGA Tour, Vokey SM6 wedges provide precise distance control, enhanced shot versatility, maximum spin and superior feel through the following key technologies.
A groundbreaking new Progressive Centre of Gravity (CG) design aligns the CG with the impact position of each loft to produce precise distance and trajectory control with exceptional feel. Engineered using cutting-edge CAD technology, the Progressive CG is visible technology on the back of the wedge.
Low Loft (46º-52º) SM6 models feature a low CG that increases ball speed on average by 1.5mph (3-5 yards). This low CG position provides a precisely aligned progression from a typical iron set. It is visible technology, highlighted by a thinner toppling and raised lower section.
Mid lofts (54º & 56º) feature a mid CG position, precisely aligned between the low lofts and high lofts, that provides precise distance gapping and exceptional feel.
High lofts (58º-62º) feature a high CG position that produces tighter distance dispersion, improved trajectory control and better feel. The high CG position is precisely aligned with the impact position of high lofted wedges, higher on the face. It is visible technology, highlighted by a raised upper section.
Master Craftsman Bob Vokey’s five tour-validated SM6 sole grinds have been fine tuned through Bob’s work with the world’s best shot makers, providing golfers of all skill levels with improved shot versatility for their swing type, shot making style and course conditions.Titleist Vokey Design SM6 Wedges
Tour Player Feedback
All five SM6 grinds (L, M, S, F, K) are currently in play across the worldwide professional tours. Each grind is a direct result of Bob’s experience fitting tour players, PGA professionals and amateurs of all skill levels for more than 20 years.
Jordan Spieth started 2016 with four SM6 wedges (SM6 46.08 F, 52.08 F, 56.10 S, 60.04 L) in his bag, winning the Hyundai Tournament of Champions by eight shots with a 30-under total. Spieth first put the SM6’s in play in November at the WGC-HSBC Champions event.
In addition to Spieth, SM6 models are in the bags of more than 45 players on the PGA Tour, including Adam Scott (SM6 48.08 F, 54.10 S, 60.06 K), Jimmy Walker, Jason Dufner, Robert Streb, Bill Haas and Webb Simpson.
