Vokey Wedgeworks Offers Limited Edition 60A Grind

CARLSBAD, CA Master Craftsman Bob Vokey and Vokey Tour Representative Aaron Dill are at it again, working with the world’s best players to create the new Vokey WedgeWorks 60A Limited Edition wedge.

 Inspired by conversations with players across the worldwide professional tours, including major champions Geoff Ogilvy and Adam Scott, as well as Ian Poulter and many others who have it in their bags, this unique wedge with 60* of loft and 4* of bounce, is ideal for the player looking to flight the ball higher, while playing from firm turf and bunkers.

Born out of the popular Vokey Design L Grind, the grind line on the sole is smoothed out resulting in a faster feel through the turf.

Like many low bounce wedges, this smooth, fast feeling wedge requires precise delivery at impact, especially in soft conditions.

SM8 TECHNOLOGY AND FINISH
Consistent with all SM8 wedges, the 60A features a progressive CG, pushed forward of the face for increased MOI, as well as Spin Milled grooves resulting in consistent ball flight control and maximum spin. The 60A is available in a Brushed Copper finish which will wear over time.
