What we say...
The Titleist Vokey SM8 wedges almost missed out on our Top Gear test as they weren’t unveiled until the PGA Show in January, so test samples were hard to come by. But we’re glad we waited until our very last test day to get hold of them.
As you’d expect from Titleist Vokey, the SM8s are a cracking tour-level wedge, and for the first time they’re talking about improved forgiveness thanks to tungsten toe weights which increase MOI forgiveness by up to 7%. According to Titleist, that forgiveness improves shot to shot consistency for accuracy-focused golfers.

If you insist tour-level wedges are the best option for your game in 2020, then the SM8s should be pinging your radar – as should a proper Titleist wedge fitting.
