Choke not a good golf word. Grip Down is better. Sometimes when I do I get the same distance anyway so I can't count on a tweener shot just by gripping down.
I spent 1 hour. First I hit a gap wedge 80 yards or less off of tight fairway lies, practising a shorter backswing and accelerating follow thru for these 3/4 shots working on controlling trajectory. Second using same club 10 to 30 yard chip shots.
Being a high ball hitter I've seen new sharp groove clubs stop the ball from rising and change distances a few yards.
I play with a 62 yr old single digit handicapper who uses his driver on every hole regardless of length and narrowness. His gentle 230 yard fade is a consistent thing of beauty. I've often wondered why he doesn't back off as he's a very conservative player, who will always play away from water to the opposite side in the rough.

Errant shots and looking for your ball to identify it hold up play. Take the stress out of it, drop one and play on, the average Joe just wants...
