Bob Vokey hand-picked Aaron Dill, better known on Twitter as @Vokeywedgerep, to be his main man on tour, representing his wedge-making shop with many of the world's best players. Over that decade they've worked together, Dill has learned the craft of wedge-making, and now he's getting a crack at putting forward for public consumption a wedge he designed -- a wedge inspired by the likes of 2006 U.S. Open winner Geoff Ogilvy.
The limited-edition Vokey Design AD-siXty wedge is a low-bounce (4 degrees), 60-degree wedge fashioned after the type Ogilvy would play based on his experience growing up on firmer surfaces in Australia. It's designed to flight the ball higher in firm conditions on turf and in sand, making it great for dry days from turf and in all kinds of bunker conditions. The lower bounce angle in front makes it sit closer to the ground, helpful for getting out of tight spots. As conditions soften, the wedge becomes more demanding to strike properly, despite the wedge's versatile grind.
The progressive center of gravity design found in modern Vokey wedges and the TX4 groove spec are in this special wedge, which has a brushed nickel look.
The Vokey Design AD-siXty wedges can be customized through WedgeWorks, including personalized stamping in up to eight characters and one of 12 paintfill colors. Customers can also customize shafts, grips, shaft bands and ferrules. The Vokey Design AD-siXty is available Sept. 20 through WedgeWorks on Vokey.com for $250 each.
