Review: Titleist Vokey SM9 Wedge

The most-anticipated wedge has already hit the market by storm.

Titleist, whose SM series is immensely popular among players, released new wedges early this year that drew people's attention and earned a spot in almost everyone's bags.

Titleist has acquired this reputation throughout the years, especially when it comes to the wedge industry.

Titleist Vokey Design SM9

As said, Titleist never let you down when it comes to wedges, and the new SM9 wedges are no different. It offers to maximise spin, control and consistency for more confidence on every shot.

I am a 13 Handicapper, and the SM9 helped me lower my score by 2 Strokes in just a single round. But even if you are a beginner, this club makes/produces shots around the green very easy.

The Vokey SM9 features a progressive center of gravity (CG) throughout the lofts, which optimises ball flight, accuracy and forgiveness. Using tapered top lines and varied hosel lengths, the Vokey R&D team has raised the height of the CG in the higher lofts, which promotes a lower, more controlled flight. The CG is also forward of the face, resulting in increased MOI, exceptional feel and a clubface that simply wants to square up at impact.

These wedges are easy to use and are suitable for nearly all golfers. It produces low running shots that golfers like me need to hit on the course.
