Many golfers know that a Titleist Vokey wedge is always going to be a top quality, extremely well made golf club.
And the 2009 Vokey Design Spin Milled Series of Wedges from Titleist is a lovely looking selection of clubs. Titleist intended these wedges to be the perfect combination of technology and craftsmanship.
Created by the much acclaimed wedge maker Bob Vokey, this wedge comes in a massive range of options. Offering all golfers the opportunity to choose a loft and bounce that will suit almost any shot type or course.
The full selection of lofts for this Titleist Vokey Wedge, range from 48 to 64 degrees, available with many bounce angle combinations as well.

We tested one of the 56 degree lofted models, combined with 8 degree of bounce. The shaft of the club was the standard True Temper Dynamic Gold steel shaft, wedge flex.
We found this wedge to be relatively light in weight compared to some others on the market. However it still gives you a good feel when you hold the club in your hands, and it also looks pretty nice at address to.
In terms of generating spin on the golf ball this Titleist Vokey wedge was very, very good, in our view it could just about be the best on the market. Though this is something that will always be debatable amongst many golfers.
But in our opinion the TaylorMade Z TP Smoke Wedge was perhaps the only golf club that performed just slightly better for spin. But we think that is probably the only wedge that beats this Titleist Vokey.
For chipping and pitching when around or near the green, this wedge really does have every quality that you'd want. There's such versatility and as Titleist intended with this club, it was effective from practically any lie.
Wet bunkers, heavy rough, bone dry tight lies, this wedge can do the business from any of them, and still give you a great amount of feel and control. Be it a high flop shot or a low pitch that is required.
If you're iron play isn't that accurate, and you regularly find yourself at the greenside, this is a club that you want in your golf bag.
With regards to the longer shots, say from 60 yards or more. We admittedly didn't quite find this Vokey wedge to be as effective as it was from around the green.
If you're a bit off centre with a swing, this Titleist Vokey Wedge isn't the most forgiving of golf clubs.
However as it's a wedge, and the fact that you'll never be too far from the green when playing it, a poor strike isn't as damaging as in the case of a bigger club.
But when you have to make a longer swing, if you don't hit the ball quite right, you do suffer more in terms of distance than accuracy.
More often than not a bad swing with this wedge from the further distances will leave you coming up quite a bit short of the pin, or even the green itself.
But aside from that there isn't really anything negative to say about this Titleist Vokey wedge, for what it's made for it does the job brilliantly. Which is what most golfers have come to expect in recent years from any wedge with the name Vokey.
A slight draw back, if you could call it that, is that the price of the Titleist Vokey Spin Milled Tour wedge is still very high for a golf club of this kind.
Just now in 2012, you can generally expect to pay around £85 or $138 for one of these wedges brand new. But you do have to remember that you are getting a quality wedge from one of the top wedge makers in the world for your money.
