I voted 3-5 iron. My driver and 3 wood misses aren't as bad that I can't find the ball off the tee. For the 3-5 iron I always tend to miss hit whether it's fat, thin, or hard pushes to push slices off the tee, in the fairway, or any other kind of lie.

Definitely 3 Iron. I resolve to someday have confidence in hitting this club.

Putter. When it's hot, I shoot in the mid 70's; when it's not, I shoot in the mid 80's. The reason why there's such a gap is because whenever I 3-putt a hole or miss a short putt, I hit a bad tee shot on the next hole. All mental.

Errant drive, thin approach, chunked wedge etc. Rare to hit two in a row. That's the frustration of it. At the end of each round I can look back at the card and pinpoint exactly where the lost shots were. It's always just 3-5 shots a side that are just toally blown. Once in a while a missed kick in bites me so even the putter figures into it.
I feel you brother... At least when I was an 18+ I expected some bad shots. This 10-13 range is driving me nuts. 90% of my shots are great, low single digit caliber. I'm taking divots, compressing the ball, can work it left and right, my short game is solid if not good, and my putting has its ups and downs but very limited 3 putts if any in a round. It's that 10%. That draw I over cook and leave myself with no shot. It's the drive that I don't get through and block one out OB and the 2 or 3 other shots per round that compound into a blowup on 1 or 2 holes combined with a spattering of bogeys.

I'm definitely going driver here. It's not that I miss hit it necessarily more often than the occasional iron, wedge or putt, but when I miss it, I really miss it. The ball's either OB or way out of scoring position. At least when I miss hit another club, I'm almost always in a position where getting up and down is at least possible.

I've tried TaylorMade, Ping, Titleist, Mizuno, Wilson, Ben Hogan, Callaway, and I'm sure a few other brand of drivers, so I don't think that buying a new driver is the solution. To be truthful, the driver is not my most inconsistent club, (all clubs are relatively similar in consistency), but the act of driving the ball has the largest margin of error for me in comparison to my swings for fairway woods, irons, wedges, and putts. :)

From 60-70 yards in to the green, I am just as liable to hit one straight right as I am at the green...

 

I cannot control anything in my short game...

 

On another note, any suggestions as to why everything I hit with a wedge is heading straight right??? I know the easy fix is head down, but I feel like I'm doing that!!!

That sounds like you are hitting it with the shank.
