Vokey Introduces New Limited Edition 60A Lob Wedge

Born from the Popular L Grind and Inspired by Major Champion Geoff Ogilvy

CARLSBAD, Calif. – 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.

“I spoke with Geoff (Ogilvy), and we got on the topic of Australian golf courses and how they compared to courses in America and around the world,” said Dill.  “I asked him some specific questions which resulted in an idea to design a lob wedge that complemented the firm links-style conditions that players face – not just in Australia and Europe – but globally. Geoff has always been a low bounce player in his 60 degree, so I took the original chassis that he had in his L wedge and removed the ribbon taking the bounce down.”

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.

PRICING AND AVAILABILITY: Vokey WedgeWorks 60A Grind Limited Edition is now available for $250, only through WedgeWorks on Vokey.com while supplies last.
