Without a doubt, the highlight of the week has to be PGA Professional Rob Labritz canning a 95-yard wedge shot in sudden death at the PGA Professional National Championship to earn a spot in the PGA Championship. Heck, it was even No. 1 on ESPN's top plays.

As happy as Labritz was with his fantastic feat, someone else pretty satisfied, too – Bob Vokey, the namesake of Titleist's Vokey Wedges and the man who designed the wedge that Labritz used to hit what he called ''the shot of my life.''

On Friday, the Vokey Wedges Twitter account tweeted out a photo from April, showing Vokey and Labritz working on the bounce of Labritz's wedges. ''How'd those wedges work out Rob?,'' Vokey asked in the tweet, and I think we all know the answer.
