Titleist Vokey SM4 wedges

Friday, November 1, 2013

The Titleist Vokey SM4 wedges come in a choice of three finishes (Tour Chrome, Black Nickel, Oil Can).

With a rounded toe, the SM4 also offers a large selection of lofts ranging from 46 to 64 degree and bounces ranging from 4 to 14 degree. MSRP is $129; overall there are 21 wedge choices within the SM4 family.

Designer Bob Vokey works extensively with touring pros to formulate the sole grinds on his wedges while making the most popular wedges on the PGA Tour.

A word of advice to all amateurs: Pay attention to the sole when selecting a 64-degree wedge, evaluating not only the bounce but also the sole relief that allows the clubhead to be laid wide

open; always hit a few shots with the club before buying. The 64-degree SM4 comes with a standard bounce of 7 degree.
