The Titleist Vokey SM5 wedges deliver more spin and more types of shots, providing golfers with more ways to hit it close and shoot lower scores. Vokey Spin Milled 5 wedges are the best performing wedges in the game, a result of Master Craftsman Bob Vokey’s decades of research and collaborations with the world’s best players, such as Adam Scott, Steve Stricker and Jason Dufner. Since 2004, Vokey Design wedges have been the #1 wedge on the PGA Tour and the most played wedge at every level of competitive golf.
For years, Vokey and his team of craftsmen, including Vokey Tour representative Aaron Dill, have utilised tour player input and feedback to produce the largest and most effective range of bounce and sole grind options in the game. Vokey SM5 wedges are available in 21 different loft/bounce/grind combinations and six tour-inspired sole grinds, appropriately slotted into low, mid and high bounce categories to fit all swing types, shot-making styles and short game conditions.
L Grind - Narrow crescent sole with small forward bounce surface and minimal camber. This low bounce grind is designed for the slider swing type and firm conditions.
T Grind - Dual bounce sole with wide trailing bounce surface. This low/mid bounce grind is designed for the slider/neutral swing type and firm/medium conditions.
S Grind - Full sole with straight trailing edge ribbon and moderate heel relief. This mid bounce grind is designed for the slider/neutral swing type and firm/medium/soft conditions.
M Grind - Crescent sole with narrow forward bounce surface and moderate camber. This mid bounce grind is designed for the slider/neutral swing type and firm/medium conditions.
F Grind - Full sole with moderate camber and small trailing edge ribbon. This mid/high grind is designed for the slider/neutral/digger swing type and firm/medium/soft conditions.
K Grind - Wide sole with increased bounce and enhanced camber. This high bounce grind is designed for the neutral/digger swing type and medium/soft conditions.

Based on tour player feedback, Spin Milled 5 wedges feature a more compact, balanced profile than their SM4 predecessors. SM5 wedges have a rounder toe profile than SM4, as well as a shorter blade length and taller toe and (par) heel heights.
100% Groove Inspection
Prior to the launch of the Vokey SM4 wedges, Titleist made a significant investment in technology that establishes 100-percent inspection of every groove on every Vokey wedge that is produced. This allows Titleist to manufacture wedges to tighter tolerances than the rest of the industry. Each new TX3 groove is evaluated using computer-guided plotting technology in which a digital stylus is piloted to trace the contours of each groove. Three-dimensional coordinates are recorded and plotted as the stylus moves, compiling data that can be translated into measurements of the groove’s total volume and edge radius. This enables the manufacturing team to machine the grooves right up against the edge of the maximum allowable 0.011-inch radius specification, providing players the highest possible spin and trajectory control without fear of non-compliance.
Vokey states, “I’ve always said I have the best R&D facility in the world – the PGA Tour. I worked closely with our team of craftsmen and engineers to apply everything I’ve learned from the best players in the world to Spin Milled 5. We’ve increased the spin. We’ve given players more control. And we’ve got a bounce and grind matrix that will provide the versatility and confidence to hit a variety of shots around the green and get up and down more.”
