James Colligan, The Clubroom Director, recently embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime trip with Titleist to Carlsbad, USA, where they visited the renowned Titleist Performance Institute.
The highlight of the trip for James was the opportunity to spend time with the legendary wedge maker, Bob Vokey. James was thrilled to have the chance to learn from one of the best in the business. Vokey has been designing wedges for more than 20 years and is widely regarded as a master craftsman when it comes to creating clubs that perform at the highest level.
During their time together, Vokey shared his insights and knowledge with James, who was eager to soak up as much information as possible. James said that the experience was "out of this world" and that he came away from the trip with a new appreciation for the intricacies of wedge design and manufacturing.
As a Clubroom Director, James is responsible for helping golfers choose the right equipment to improve their game. The knowledge he gained from Bob Vokey will undoubtedly be invaluable.
In addition to spending time with Vokey, James and the Titleist team had the opportunity to explore the Titleist Performance Institute, where they learned about the latest technologies and techniques used to develop golf equipment. This was a truly unique experience for James, who relished the chance to see first-hand how some of the world's best golf clubs are made.
