What Is The Purpose Of Grind?

As golf continues to evolve, so to does the equipment. With each brand bringing out new models yearly, it begs the question, how much do the clubs change? Well, each year we see upgrades in materials, styles, COG adjustments and so much more. 

One area that continues to develop is wedge grinds. An important factor that many amateur golfers overlook when choosing a new wedge, and it could be costing you shots.


“Wedge grind is the manipulation or removal of material from the sole of the club, helping to improve contact with the turf. Grinds allow for more creativity and consistency around the green, letting you play with ball spin, flight, power, and other factors.” ~ Titleist

The blue shaded area in the adjacent image indicates the grind. It’s important to use the right wedge grinds for your swing type and course conditions, so you can be prepared to hit every kind of wedge shot.

As no single club suits every golfer it’s important that manufacturers are offering grinds and bounce options to suit every style. 

The way we interact with the turf varies and with the right club in our hands we can all play a shot to suit our game and skill set. 

This is why Vokey offer 6 grind options to support golfers in their quest to finding the right wedge. 

Finding the right wedge will depend on you as a golfer, factors include: 

  • Turf interaction (divot patterns)
  • Bunker confidence
  • Swing length preference
  • Skill set with opening the face and so on…

Below is Titleist’s spec sheet to indicate the criteria for each of their grinds.
