Titleist Introduces New Vokey Design SM6 Wedges
New SM6 Models Provide Precise Distance Control, Enhanced Shot Versatility,
Maximum Spin and Superior Feel; Available in Golf Shops March 11
FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Jan. 26, 2016) – New Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled 6
wedges – the next step in wedge innovation from the clear leader in the
category – 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 Center 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 topline 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
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
• 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.
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
• New 100% inspected proprietary Spin Milled TX4 grooves and face texture
deliver more spin (up to 200rpm more spin on average) with more consistent spin
New TX4 grooves are engineered with a machine milled, parallel face texture
that creates a sharper, more consistent groove edge.
TX4 grooves feature two groove geometries: a narrower, deeper groove for the
46º-54º lofts; and a wider, shallower groove in the 56º-62º lofts.
The parallel face texture and progressive groove geometries optimize
ball-to-groove edge contact, producing more spin and control around the greens.
Available in golf shops beginning March 11, Vokey SM6 wedges are
available in 46º to 62º lofts and three finishes: Tour Chrome, Steel Gray and
Jet Black (raw).
“These are the best wedges we’ve ever made,” Bob Vokey said. “Our engineers have
taken everything I’ve learned working with tour players, PGA pros and amateurs
over the last 20-plus years, everything (Vokey Tour Rep) Aaron Dill has learned
from being on tour week in and week out, and brought it to life with technology
that will help golfers at every level of the game. SM6 really is the total
“The detail and precision that’s gone into SM6 is off the charts,” Aaron Dill
said. “We’ve taken everything into consideration while really focusing in on the
CG. This is technology that you can actually see on the wedge – technology that
tour players are raving about because it is helping them control their
trajectory, hit their number more consistently and ultimately score better.”
INSTANT TOUR ADOPTION: Vokey SM6 became the most played wedge model on
the PGA Tour the first week it was available to players at the Shriners Hospital
for Children Open in October, with a total of 74 new SM6 models immediately put
into play. SM6 has remained the #1 model in play each successive week, with the
total of SM6 models at the
Sony Open in Hawaii reaching 110.
Jordan Spieth started 2016 with four SM6 wedges 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 Jimmy Walker, Jason Dufner, Robert Streb, Adam Scott,
Bill Haas and Webb Simpson.

industry-leading selection of shafts, grips, shaft bands, ferrules, stamping and
paint fill. For a complete list of personalization and custom options, visit

New Vokey Design SM6 Wedges:
Tour Player Reaction
JIMMY WALKER (SM6 48.08 F, 54.08 M, 60.04 L)
“With the new SM6 wedges I’m able to be more precise. I’ve got a lot better
distance control into the green. Being able to hit your number consistently and
having the reliability in your wedge is big. Distance control is everything the
closer you get.”
“I’m always excited to get anything new from Bob, because I enjoy the fact that
Bob gets out and talks to us on the golf course at tournaments. He comes out
quite frequently and really likes to hear the feedback. And with his right-hand
man, Aaron Dill, who’s out here every week, they both are really in there, hands
on, trying to put the best product in our hands that they can.”
JORDAN SPIETH (SM6 46.08 F, 52.08 F, 56.10 S, 60.04 L)
“With the higher CG on my 60 degree SM6, I can miss a shot out of the rough and
it’s still going to go around the same distance. That’s important, because with
certain lies it’s tough to know what the ball’s going to do. You’re just not
always going to hit it on the center of the face. To be able to have that
inconsistency on your first strike but still see the consistency in the ball
control, that’s something that’s going to be an advantage over anybody else
we’re playing against.”
ADAM SCOTT (SM6 48.08 F, 54.10 S, 60.06 K)
“Feel is such a huge factor in wedge play. It’s one of the big reasons why Vokey
wedges are so popular. With the new SM6, and the way they have moved the CG
around so that you get more feel off the wedge face itself, it’s just another
bonus for me.”
“It’s been really an honor to know a man like Bob Vokey. I knew of him long
before he knew of me, when it was just such a privilege to even see a Vokey
wedge in Australia as a kid. Then when I got to the tour I got to spend a lot of
time with Bob at events or going out to California. I’ve watched him be so
passionate about grinding a wedge. It’s like an artist doing their thing. I know
how much passion and commitment has gone into a Vokey wedge. It’s inspiring for
me to go out and play the way I feel passionate about golf. I feel like it’s a
BILL HAAS (SM6 54.10 S, 60.10 S)
“There’s nothing we love more than hitting a full lob wedge from 85 to 100
yards, flighting it low but taking one hop and spinning. With SM6 and the weight
configuration on the back of the club, it’s going to help flight the ball down
so you can control your trajectory and hit that shot more often.”
JASON DUFNER (SM6 52.12 F, 56.14 F, 60.12 K)
“The new SM6 wedges allow me to get more spin and control than ever before – and
spin is huge out here on the PGA Tour. We are getting firmer and faster
conditions especially in the bigger events. You need to have spin. Bob and his
team have done a great job to find a way to pick up the 200 or 300 RPMs, which
could be the difference in your ball being inside the 5 feet, or maybe catching
a ridge and rolling back 10 feet. That’s the type of dedication that we need out
here because all of those little things make a big difference.
