Q & A
Bounce and sole grinds allow golfers to be fit into the best performance for their swing type and course conditions. SM7 wedges have six options, including the new D Grind.
The F Grind is an all-purpose grind with a traditional full sole, designed to be used primarily on full swings and square face shots.
The S Grind is designed for stability on full shots, best used for square-faced shots with a touch more versatility, based on feedback from Tour pro Steve Stricker.
The M Grind, Bob Vokey's favorite, is made for players who like to rotate the face open and shut for serious versatility around the greens.
The D Grind is the "player's high bounce wedge". It features the same crescent shape of the M with a higher effective bounce for golfers with a steep angle of attack.
The K Grind is the highest bounce grind in the lineup, designed to be the most forgiving for play out of bunkers.
The L Grind has a narrow crescent shape for maximum versatility around the greens, but it's also the least forgiving.
This concept, pioneered by Titleist and Vokey, aligns the center of gravity with the impact position specific to each loft for precise distance and trajectory control. In SM7, these locations are even higher in the higher lofts and lower in the lower lofts for more consistent performance and noticeably better feel.
Every groove on every wedge is inspected at Titleist's facility. This guarantees each wedge is made to their strict tolerances. Grooves are cut even sharper providing SM7 with 100 more rpm. Each wedge is also specially heat treated to provide longer-lasting spin for the life of the club.
The Vokey SM7 offers golf's most complete selection of lofts, bounces, and sole grinds when it comes to wedges. A total of 23 different combinations ensures every golfer can find wedges fit for them.
