There are currently seven different sole configurations and grinds available in the Titleist Vokey Design SM9 family, but evidently, that’s not enough.

Through the company’s custom department, known as WedgeWorks, Titleist made the limited-edition 64W wedge available on the eve of the Masters Tournament four weeks ago. That club was an ultra-high-lofted, low-bounce offering with significant heel and toe relief.

Now, just a few days before the start of the PGA Championship, Titleist is offering the limited edition V Grind wedge through the Wedge Works department.

When faced with a tricky situation around the green, many players like to open the face of their lob wedge and use finesse to get the ball out of trouble and onto the green. The V Grind, which is only being offered in 58 and 60-degree versions, is for players who prefer to keep the face of their wedge pointed at their target, in what is referred to as a square position, but they still want a club that can provide them with enough bounce.

There are 10 degrees of bounce in the V Grind, but the bounce has been positioned more forward in the sole, which should help golfers if they make a steep swing or when they play in softer conditions.

At the same time, Bob Vokey and his lead PGA Tour rep, Aaron Dill, have designed the V Grind with material removed in the heel and toe, so if a golfer chooses to open the face when faced with a tight lie or needs to get the ball up quickly, the option is available.

The V Grind wedge will be available starting May 16 and cost $225 with a True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 shaft and Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grip. It will be available at, with several custom stamping and paint fill options available.
