Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled 6 wedges

Already the most played wedge model on the US PGA Tour, Vokey SM6 wedges provide precise distance control, enhanced shot versatility, maximum spin and superior feel through a range of technologies.

Firstly, a groundbreaking new Progressive Centre of Gravity (CG) design aligns the CG with the impact position of each loft to produce precise distance and trajectory control with exceptional feel. Engineered using cutting-edge CAD technology, the Progressive CG is visible technology on the back of the wedge.

Low Loft (46º-52º) SM6 models feature a low CG that increases ball speed on average by 12.4km/h (3-5 metres). This low CG position provides a precisely aligned progression from a typical iron set. It is visible technology, highlighted by a thinner topline and raised lower section.

Mid lofts (54º & 56º) feature a mid CG position, precisely aligned between the low lofts and high lofts, that provides precise distance gapping and exceptional feel.

High lofts (58º-62º) feature a high CG position that produces tighter distance dispersion, improved trajectory control and better feel. The high CG position is precisely aligned with the impact position of high lofted wedges, higher on the face. It is visible technology, highlighted by a raised upper section.

Master Craftsman Bob Vokey’s five tour-validated SM6 sole grinds have been finetuned through Vokey’s work with the world’s best shot makers, providing golfers of all skill levels with improved shot versatility for their swing type, shot making style and course conditions. All five SM6 grinds (L, M, S, F, K) are currently in play across the worldwide professional tours. Each grind is a direct result of Vokey’s experience fitting tour players, PGA professionals and amateurs of all skill levels for more than 20 years. “These are the best wedges we’ve ever made,” says Vokey. “Our engineers have taken everything I’ve learned working with tour players, PGA pros and amateurs over the last 20-plus years, everything (Vokey Tour Rep) Aaron Dill has learned from being on tour week in and week out, and brought it to life with technology that will help golfers at every level of the game. SM6 really is the total package.”

Adam Scott is one of Vokey’s biggest fans and loves the new feel of SM6. “Feel is such a huge factor in wedge play,” says Scott. “It’s one of the big reasons why Vokey wedges are so popular. With the new SM6, and the way they have moved the CG around so that you get more feel off the wedge face itself, it’s just another bonus for me.”

SM6 wedges can be custom ordered with a wide range of specifications and personalisation, including an industry-leading selection of shafts, grips, shaft bands, ferrules, stamping and paint fill.

Vokey Design SM6 wedges are now available in Australia with a suggested retail price (SRP) at $229 (Steel) & $269 (Graphite). For more information, go to titleist.com.au.

Callaway Superhot 55 Ball

Designed to deliver distance from tee to green and reduce hooks and slices, Callaway’s new Superhot 55 golf ball has a low 55 compression that makes it feel incredibly soft. The ball’s aerodynamics promote low drag and optimal lift to keep it in the air longer with a strong flight, so you get distance off the driver and all the way through your short irons. The Superhot 55’s soft mantle and cover system work together to create low spin, which reduces hooks and slices for a more controlled, straighter ball flight, while soft-feeling 55 compression allows you to compress the ball at impact.

Callaway’s Superhot 55 is available now for a recommended retail price of $49.99 (per dozen).

Cobra KING Utility Iron

Cobra Golf has introduced the KING Utility Iron, the brand’s first adjustable hollow body utility iron that offers multiple loft settings in a single club. The KING Utility is available in a 3-iron, featuring a large sole with a hollow head, and is packed with Cobra Golf’s game-changing metalwood technologies including MyFly8 that allows golfers to seamlessly adjust the loft to best fit their games.

The KING Utility Iron provides the feel and performance of an iron, combined with the forgiveness and slightly higher flight of a hybrid. The club’s 17-4 hollow body design and a new 455ss L-Cup Face, combined with its 67-gram tungsten weight strategically positioned low and back in the head, deliver optimal Centre of Gravity (CG) and high MOI. The new L-Cup face design produces increased speed and higher launch, the key performance benefits golfers look for in a utility iron. The true game-changer in the KING Utility 3-iron is the use of MyFly8 Technology in an iron. A first for Cobra and a first for golf, this proprietary technology affords golfers an ability to fine-tune their designed launch conditions from a 3-iron at 21 degrees down to a 2-iron at 18 degrees.

“This club is perfect for the golfer whose last iron stops at 4 and needs a 3, or the golfer whose longest iron stops at 3 and needs 2-iron distance somewhere throughout the round,” said Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D, Cobra Golf. “We designed this utility iron with Rickie Fowler in mind – he currently uses this iron at courses he deems a match for this style of play.”

The KING Utility iron (RRP: $289 steel; $319 graphite) is available in RH only and is available now.

Adidas Tour360 Boost Shoe

At first glance, you might think you’ve seen these shoes before. The familiar racing stripes are an Adidas trademark. What makes these different? The company is marking the 10-year anniversary of its golf-specific Tour360 line with the latest offering – the Tour360 Boost shoes. Adidas designers focused on making the shoe lighter, more stable and comfortable. In speaking to Jason Day last month at our cover photoshoot, he told us how much he liked the Boa lacing system. He detailed how often times with a laced shoe, players will worry about the shoe becoming unlaced during the latter parts of the round. That’s not an issue with Adidas’ Boa system, he explained – and one less thing for you to worry about during your round. The company’s Boost foam material was added to the forefoot and heel for improved cushioning, while premium leather upper with ClimaProof technology provides a rich look, soft comfortable feel and long lasting protection and durability.

What's Hot in May

Advanced dual-density, 10-cleat puremotion TPU outsole with strategically-placed CenTraXion and thintech cleats provide improved stability and grip where it’s needed most. A new Torsion Tunnel provides independent flexibility and control between the heel and forefoot while providing enhanced arch support and improves green friendliness. The adidas TOUR360 Boost shoes are available now and come with a two-year waterproof warranty and recommended retail price of $289.
