Having a solid wedge game is critical for any golfer. This is especially true out on the PGA Tour and amplified at all of the major championships.

So we went straight to the source and caught up with Vokey Wedge Tour Rep Aaron Dill (Master Craftsman Bob Vokey’s right-hand man) for an exclusive interview to learn more about the importance of the proper wedge setup, bounce and grind configurations and other short game adjustments that will help pave the way to success for Vokey loyalists at Hoylake.

The week of the Open Championship is always an exciting one for us at Team Titleist. We get to enjoy some great golf and we also get to celebrate the birthday of Master Craftsman Bob Vokey.

Bob has spent the vast majority of his distinguished career working closely with many of the best players in the world, listening to their feedback, taking copious notes and transforming his concepts into some of the most trusted and highest performing wedges on tour.

As “The Voke” likes to say…

"I have always said since the day I arrived at Titleist, that I have the best R&D facility in the world - the PGA TOUR."

So to help us send a very special birthday wish, we caught up with some of the players who trust his creations week in and week out under the most challenging course conditions.

Watch the video above and join us in wishing “The Voke” a very Happy Birthday!
