PGA TOUR | PGA Championship 


The 2024 PGA Champion gamed a pair of Vokey Design wedges in earning his first major title, including the WedgeWorks 60-degree Low Bounce K lob wedge he used for the tournament-clinching up and down on the 72nd hole.  

The champion, who also carries a NEW Vokey SM10 56.10S sand wedge, was a perfect five-for-five in Sand Saves (100%/T1) and 10-for-12 in Scrambling (83%/3rd).  

This week in Valhalla, half (223) of the gap, sand and lob wedges in play were Vokey Design, compared to 67 for the nearest competitor. 

Vokey wedge players have now won four consecutive men’s major championships. 

The 2024 Masters champion brought three Vokey wedges to the winner’s circle (SM8 50.12F gap wedge, 56.14F sand wedge and SM9 WedgeWorks 60T lob wedge). Reigning Open Champion Brian Harman also played three Vokeys (SM9 50.08F, 54.08M, 60.04L), while Wyndham Clark carried a set of four (SM9 46.10F, 52.12F, 56.10S, WedgeWorks 60A) in winning last year’s U.S. Open.

Korn Ferry Tour | AdventHealth Championship 

Playing a Pro V1 golf ball, the winner of the AdventHealth Championship holed out for eagle on the 72nd hole and made birdie on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to take the title. The champion, who switched to a Pro V1 at the start of the 2024 Korn Ferry Tour season having played a competitive brand for years, jarred his 83-yard approach on the par-5 18th hole to set the clubhouse lead at 19 under. His hole-out put the finishing touches on a 65-66 weekend, which was tied for the low total over the final two rounds. When Tanner Gore (Pro V1) matched his 72-hole total, the two went back to the 18th tee. A birdie-4 officially crowned the champion. 

The champion led the field in Driving Accuracy (70%) and Scrambling (86%) this week in Kansas City. He also finished eighth in Greens in Regulation (81%).
