Titleist Vokey Design SM8 S-Grind Lob Wedge
Introducing SM8. The Height of Innovation. Great wedge play comes from distance control, shot versatility and spin. Bob Vokey and team have designed the SM8 wedges to improve in all three areas.
Improved Distance & Trajectory Control
Introduced in SM6, refined in SM7, and reimagined in SM8. The center of gravity (CG) has been pushed forward, which produces higher MOI. For golfers, this means improved feel and a club face that simply wants to square at impact.
SM8 Grinds: The Heart and "Sole" of Versatility
Your swing is unique and requires a unique wedge. Master Craftsman Bob Vokey has spent years crafting, developing, and improving his Tour-proven sole grinds to fit players of all levels.
Maximum Spin - Ultimate Control
SM8 grooves are cut to the edge to maximize spin and shot control. Each groove on every head is 100% inspected for conformity, and a localized heat treatment is applied to the impact area to double the durability of the groove.

Vokey Design Lob Wedges
The lob wedge is the newest club in wedge design, creating more shot versatility for players at any level. Because the lob wedge loft is even greater than that of a sand wedge, lob wedges can achieve higher ball flight near the green.
Vokey lob wedges are crafted with a high center of gravity to optimize for the impact position on your swing, giving you more consistency and control in tricky situations.
And, with shallower, wider spin-milled grooves, the Vokey lob wedge is one of the best lob wedges for hitting it close to the pin.
Lob Wedge Loft
The lob wedge loft is the highest in the wedge category, allowing players to hit more accurate chips, flop shots, and bunker shots.
While lob wedges can create more loft height, the lob wedge distance is shorter, making this club ideal for getting over tall obstacles, hitting from a downhill lie, or playing onto a fast green: all to increase your likelihood of getting up and down and scoring better.
Vokey lob wedge degrees in loft fall between 58°-62°, giving players options fit to their preferences. By finding the right lob wedge loft for your game, you can better control your trajectory and produce the exact shot you're looking for.
Lob Wedge Bounce
There is a lot of variability when it comes to lob wedge bounce. A low bounce lob wedge paired with a narrower sole allows you to get the leading edge under the ball, making for cleaner contact and a smaller window for error. However, a high bounce lob wedge can be beneficial as well, especially for softer turf or for players with steeper attack angles.
There are five unique grinds offered through the Vokey lob wedge lineup (L,M,S,D,K). Each grind and bounce option offers every player the best lob wedge for their swingtype and course condition.
The best lob wedge bounce for you will depend on your swing style and course conditions. Vokey lob wedges come in different lofts and wedge grinds, giving you the flexibility to find the lob wedge that helps you reach maximum spin control and stopping power.
