Titleist Vokey SM8 T Grind

10 Sep 2020

Master Craftsman Bob Vokey’s long-trusted T Grind, an original Vokey grind still in the bags of many 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 58 degree and 60 degree 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.

“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.”

– Bob Vokey, Master Craftsman

Both Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas have recently added Vokey T Grind lob wedges to their setups. Spieth, who first used the T Grind during college, asked for a custom-built 60-degree T Grind last season during the Player’s Championship. Leading up to the 2019 Presidents Cup, Justin Thomas ultimately decided on the T Grind to best fit the conditions and his game at Royal Melbourne. He now keeps a 60T in his travel bag and selects either the T Grind or a low-bounce K Grind based on the week, course and conditions. Ben An also regularly carries a 60T.

 

In Europe where players are more often faced with links-style conditions, the T Grind continues to grow in popularity on tour. Said Vokey’s European Tour Rep: “I’ve had players say they feel like they can hit any shot with the T Grind. 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 setups.”

WedgeWorks T Grind wedges are designed with the same advanced technologies that have made Vokey Design SM8 wedges the #1 wedge on tour. And consistent with the SM8 series, the T Grind features a modern, clean look, providing a big canvas for customisation.
