Wedge stamping has come a long way since the days when initials were hammered into the back of the head to give the scoring clubs come semblance of a personality. Then along came Rickie Fowler and singer Carly Rae Jepsen to shake things up in 2012.
At that time, Fowler was already disrupting the industry with bright colors and flat bill hats. Hoping to add some flair to his wedges, Fowler and Titleist Vokey Tour rep Aaron Dill started kicking around some stamp ideas before hitting on a few that stuck — namely a catchy chart-topper by Jepsen titled, “Call Me Maybe.” (Warning: Do not listen to the song unless you’re OK with it being stuck in your head for the rest of the day.)
Dill proceeded to stamp “Call Me Maybe” on the back of Fowler’s 60-degree Titleist Vokey Design SM4 lob wedge and watched as his creation went viral on social media.
