VOKEY WEDGEWORKS LAUNCHED: Titleist introduce 2022 T Grind
Master Craftsman Bob Vokey’s long-trusted T Grind – an original Vokey tour grind and a favourite among tour players including Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas – is now available through WedgeWorks.
Inspired by Vokey’s work with one of the game’s all-time best wedge players, the T Grind was designed for great hands and a vivid short-game imagination. Available in 58º and 60º lofts, it is ideal for a shallow angle of attack in firm conditions, with low bounce and a narrow crescent surface. Compared to Vokey’s L grind, it has a wider back flange which allows for lower measured bounce.
Vokey said: “Wedge play is an art, and the T Grind brings out the best in the artist. The leading edge stays low to the playing surface as the wedge is rotated which allows you to hit a variety of shots from tight lies. This is the wedge that really made Vokey Grinds an important part of our process – and still to this day is a great option.”
T Grind on Tour
Along with Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, players such as Cam Smith, Will Zalatoris, Cameron Young and Webb Simpson have all recently trusted the T Grind in their lob wedge setups.
The T Grind continues to grow in popularity on tour, especially in Europe where players are more often faced with links-style conditions.
Vokey’s European Tour Rep WIll Harvey said: “I’ve had players say they feel like they can hit any shot with the T. The combination of the forward bounce for low pitch shots and the grind for the soft control shots is something needed with the vast amount of shots required on links or firmer course set ups.”
Who is it for?
The T Grind is perfect for players playing in firm soil conditions, bunkers with less sand, or players with accurate deliveries that are typically shallow in approach.
What is the difference between the WW T Grind and the WW Low Bounce K Grind?
Both grinds are considered low bounce wedges but achieve low bounce with unique sole designs. The T Grind features an aggressive heel, toe, and trailing edge grind with the bounce focused towards the leading edge, whereas the WW Low Bounce K Grind features a very wide, highly cambered (rounded) sole similar to the SM9 K Grind with the bounce spread across the entire sole.
What is the difference between the WW T Grind and the SM9 L Grind?
Both grinds are considered low bounce wedges and require precise delivery, but the T Grind features a narrower forward sole (towards the leading edge) and more aggressive heel, toe, and trailing edge grind compared to the L Grind which allows the leading edge sits closer to the ground, especially on open-faced shots. The WW T Grind has a wider back flange (trailing edge) compared to the SM9 L Grind’s narrow back flange (trailing edge).
How long will WW T Grind be available?
The WW T Grind is considered a long run WedgeWorks exclusive product. This product is designed to live for the majority of the SM9 product life cycle.
