Who’s It For?
Bob Vokey and his team at Titleist have been leaders in the wedge market for years thanks to a combination of tour-proven performance and excellent craftsmanship. New in 2020, Vokey has constructed the SM8 wedges, which introduce a reimagined progressive center of gravity to promote better trajectory and distance control, among other key improvements. Golfers should take note of the six different sole grinds that are offered with the Vokey wedges that will fit every golfer differently. The F grind is perhaps the most traditional and is best used for full swings and shots with a square face. The M grind is designed for versatility to allow golfers using a shallow angle of attack to open or close the clubface to create shots. The S grind includes a trailing edge grind for a faster feel while performing best in neutral or firm conditions. The D grind works best for golfers with a steeper angle of attack that like the added versatility of an open or closed clubface. The K grind offers the highest bounce of all the SM8 wedge grinds and is designed to perform best out of bunkers and soft conditions. Lastly, the L grind offers the lowest bounce in the series and is designed for maximum greenside versatility for players in firm conditions.
The Tech Story
The key ingredient to the SM8 recipe has to do with the center of gravity. Vokey introduced Progressive CG in the SM6 wedges and refined it for the SM7 wedges so that the center of gravity aligns with the impact position. Now with the SM8 wedges, the Progressive CG has been optimized even further. Specifically, the center of gravity has been pushed forward while maintaining the same vertical position so that the center of gravity actually hovers in front of the wedge face. To make this happen, Vokey and his team lengthened the hosels and counterbalanced that weight with high-density tungsten low in the toe. This new center of gravity position increases MOI up to 7 percent, resulting in a more solid feel, improved ball flight, and a more square clubface. In addition to six unique sole grind options that have been created to fit golfers of all skill levels and swing types, each SM8 wedge also features 100 percent inspected Spin Milled grooves. The patented Spin Milled grooves are meticulously engineered and cut to the edge to maximize spin and shot control, while micro-grooves are cut in between the larger grooves for added spin on partial shots. Titleist then uses a proprietary heat treatment on the impact area to double the durability without impacting the feel.

At 2nd Swing Golf, we work very hard to accurately rate our clubs according to our
condition guide. Our golf club condition guide is as follows:
The golf club is in brand new condition and has never been used on a golf course.
Shows virtually no traces of wear and has been hit 1-3 times total. It will be difficult
to determine if it has been used.
Golf club has been played less than 10 rounds and is in top of the line used condition.
This club has seen normal usage for an extended period of time, at least one season, has
been well cared for, and is still in good used condition.
This golf club has been well used, but not abused. Below average clubs offer a great value
for someone who isn't as interested in cosmetics but cares about performance.
This golf club shows considerable wear but is usable.
