What better way to start Open Championship week than by celebrating another great event – the birthday of Master Craftsman Bob Vokey.
Ask anyone who has met "The Voke" and they will tell you he is one of the best guys out there. Quick with a story or sage advice, The Voke is always in pursuit of perfecting his craft and dedicated to the players who trust his wedges.
Bob's success has been fueled by a tireless commitment to working closely with his R&D team and tour professionals to better understand exactly what they need in terms of design and, most important, feel. As a result, Vokey Design wedges have been the favorite among PGA TOUR players since 2004, with close to 40 percent of all sand, lob and approach wedges in play each week.
Team Titleist put together a special birthday video for Bob with the help of some of our Titleist Brand Ambassadors, which you can check out in the above video.
And to continue the celebration, we're excited to bring you another exclusive sweepstakes.
This is your chance to win a Bob Vokey autographed Titleist Vokey Design Wedges staff bag that until recently made its home on the Titleist Tour Support Van – the same van that traverses the U.S. going from one PGA Tour stop to another.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: To enter the contest, log in to your Team Titleist account and then send The Voke a birthday greeting (i.e. Happy Birthday!) by adding a comment (see below) to this blog post by Sunday, July 22, at 11:59 p.m. EDT.*
Note: You must be a Team Titleist member to enter. Only one entry per person. We will randomly draw the winner from all approved entries.
(Sorry U.S. only. Here's some more info: Why are Titleist sweepstakes U.S. only?)
Happy Birthday Voke!
