It’s been a couple of years since an A-Grind last landed in Vokey WedgeWorks and it’s probably not a stretch to assume the Vokey Design WedgeWorks 60A will be the last of the SM9 era.

Still, I expect there will be plenty of interest in Vokey’s latest low-bounce wedge offering.

Grinds can be complicated so perhaps it’s helpful to understand that, for all the variety offered within the Vokey lineup, there are only a handful of what you might call “core grinds.” By and large, they’re the familiar ones (F, M, S, L, etc.) that show up on retail shelves year after year.

A good bit of what hits WedgeWorks aren’t so much unique grinds as they are variations of a core grind.

For example, the most recent WedgeWorks release, the V-Grind, is basically a higher-bounce take on the extremely versatile T-Grind.

About the WedgeWorks A-Grind

In the case of the Vokey WedgeWorks A-Grind, the starting point is the L Grind – one of two four-degree bounce options in the retail lineup.

Originally created for Geoff Ogilvy, the A-Grind can be thought of as an L-Grind with the ribbon removed.

What’s the ribbon? (You might ask.)

Simply, the ribbon is an area of relief in the transition between the meaty part of the sole and the trailing edge. It’s the bit highlighted in the middle of the L-Grind below.

The result of smoothing things out is that the A-Grind sits closer to the ground in the square position and moves through the turf with less resistance.

The A-Grind has become a popular option for players looking for a low-bounce wedge that produces a higher trajectory.

Wyndham Clark had an A-Grind wedge in the bag when he won the U.S. Open. Tom Kim won three times this year with an A-Grind in the bag and Max Homa swapped his L for an A for the firmer conditions at the Open Championship.

WedgeWorks 60A – Another Low-Bounce Option

Like the L and T (another Vokey wedge with ribbon), the Vokey WedgeWorks A-Grind offers just four degrees of bounce, making it suitable for firm turf, firm bunkers and shallow swings.

The advantage of low bounce is that it allows you to play shots from the tightest lies. The disadvantage is that it requires plenty of precision as the relative lack of bounce is prone to digging.

The A is the only low-bounce Vokey wedge I haven’t tried but with respect to L and, I suppose, T, it reads a bit like trading some versatility for playability in the square position.

Vokey’s last WedgeWorks offering (the V-Grind) proved extremely popular. It sold out almost immediately so if you’re interested in the A-Grind, I’d suggest acting quickly.

      It seems like this only has disadvantages from the standard L grind. Less versatility with the same full shot functionality. Is it just a mental thing with players or am I just too dense to get it?
