Best wedge of 2023: The top 5
1. Titleist Vokey SM9 (36.56%)
What Titleist says: “Every Vokey wedge is a demonstration of two distinct realities: the precision of engineering and the artistry of craft. The materials and structure of Vokey SM9 wedges represent our most technologically advanced design, tuned for lower flight and higher spin. But the grind applied to each releases a creative edge that only Bob Vokey can impart.”
2. Cleveland RTX 6 ZipCore (14.52%)
What Cleveland says: “You might think Wedge shots spin far less in rough or wet conditions. But with the all-new RTX 6 ZipCore, when it comes to spin, it’s all lies. By combining our new HydraZip face, UltiZip grooves, and upgraded ZipCore tech, these Wedges are designed to improve spin, conditions be darned.”
T3. TaylorMade MG3 (6.18%)
What TaylorMade says: “Wedge technology has evolved. The new Milled Grind 3 features RAW Face Micro-Ribs, engineered for added face texture to deliver spin around the greens and added precision on partial shots.”
T3. Ping Glide 4.0 (6.18%)
What Ping says: “A precision-machined face and grooves and new textured face blast increase spin and consistency, a larger activated elastomer insert helps soften the feel, and four distinct grind options maximize versatility on full and finesse shots. The compact, refined profile provides a confident and captured look at address.”
5. Cleveland CBX ZipCore (5.34%)
What Cleveland says: “CBX ZipCore delivers the perfect blend of performance and forgiveness for players that never apologize for stepping up their short game.”
