Hi Team Titleist,
At the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide, Titleist is the #1 golf ball and #1 wedges being played at Muirfield Village GC. As I write this, Byeong Hun (Ben) An, is T12 and 4-under-par through the first two rounds. An plays a full setup of Titleist equipment, including the new SM7 Vokey Design Wedges.
We caught up with Vokey Tour Representative Aaron Dill to learn more about An's wedge lineup, which includes the F grind, S grind, K grind and a T grind (which is currently custom for Tour).
"Ben has been a great guy to work with, simple and appreciative, he makes my job easy," Dill said. "He has been very loyal to his specs, with very little changes have been made to his 48/52/56. The 60 models have slight changes, as he has added the new 60-06K for softer condition weeks to reduce drag and digging. Most of the reasons for the K sole is to combat softer bunkers he faces at certain venues."
"He has also recently switched all his leading edges to semi square. This is not common on tour especially in the higher lofts but Ben has told me on multiple occasions he has the ability to square up the head so much better now that the edges are square. Ben said that his 60 is his short game dominate club and he likes to have as much feel as possible."
Enjoy the photo gallery of Ben's wedges above and good luck to all of #TeamTitleist this weekend!
