The next generation of Vokey Design wedges will make their first public appearance this week, when Titleist begins seeding the new SM8 wedges with its staff players for the first time at the PGA Tour’s RSM Classic.

Wedge designer Bob Vokey, Vokey Tour Representative Aaron Dill and Director of Wedge R&D Kevin Tassistro will be on site at Sea Island Golf Club, working alongside Titleist’s Tour Reps, introducing players to the SM8s and fitting them into the best bounce and grind setups for their game.

The tour debut of SM8 follows months of iteration and testing, including the trial of early unmarked prototypes during practice rounds on the PGA Tour. Those prototypes were well received, with players commenting on improved flight and feel, and better overall results.
