Are the current VR wedges conforming to the new groove rules?

I spoke to the Nike rep end of last year and was told that the wedges that have conforming grooves will be the Nike VR Cast V-Rev.

They were launched 1st June.

They will also have sole grinds similar to Vokeys or Callaways.

I took a few swings when I was also trying out the Method proto the last time. In an indoor simulator, it felt pretty normal but I can't see how much less spin it imparts.

If current VR wedges are not conforming, then Tiger Woods and Paul Casey using what wedges?

Trust me, you will want to hang on to your wedges with the deeper and bigger grooves.

I brought both my CC Vokeys and 2009 Vokeys out for a round y'day and seriously, for shorter shots like chips and short pitches <~20yds. You can really see that the CC ones will roll out more and will not react as much. This was tested on Bentgrass greens where spin is more prevalent and easier to impart.

TW and PC are staff players. They will have clubs manufactured specifically for them. Thats what we all here know as 'Tour Issue'.

They will not want to be caught in a situation like this gal:
