I said yes even though after reading everyone else, 90 percent is a lot but I’m prob close with my 54*. I struggled having the same touch with my set wedges that I have with my vokey. Use it for basically everything inside 75 yds besides bunkers and short sided shots from rough (that’s the 60). If I’m on a real tight fairway lie close to the green I’ll putt with a hybrid but the 54 is used at least 80 percent. Now that 60ish yd range I’ve actually been experimenting with some pelz clock method swings with my set wedges because my full swing with the 54 is good and the half swing from 50 yds is money but I tend to skull the 3/4 swing from 60-65 yds. But anyway, inside 50 yards it’s 54 degree S grind all day. Versatile grind, am comfortable manipulating ball position/face enough thanks to practicing in my yard all during quarantine.

I also use my 54 S grind around the greens and find it perfectly capable of hitting any shot from 30 and in. I am coming off the M grind and its got a hair more bounce and a little friendlier on softer lies. I use the 58 out of the bunkers and from 50-90 out. Chipping is 54 but I will go 50 for uphill and 58 for quick up and downs.

I don't have a favorite club for short game, but I do prefer to chip and let the ball run as opposed to throwing the ball up in air (pitch) and trying to drop it softly.  So I am probably using and 7-9 irons more than the wedges for short game.  But I try to let the situation dictate what I do and what club i used to do it with.

This is pretty much my approach. I find I'll chip with anything from LW to 7 iron. I also like to get the ball rolling as much as possible instead of flying and trying to stop it.

    • I definitely hit a lot of fat shots.  I just have trouble hitting the ball first and I am bad about coming over the top. I am 74.  Been playing off and on for years.  My parents probably couldn't  have afforded lessons but I can see that would have been the thing to do.  I have been doing things wrong for years and it will be hard to change.  I got me a new net.  Just going to start fixing self and hit a lot of balls if I can.  I have a good idea of what I am doing wrong but I don't  know if I can change it. I was going to try and change to the single plane swing.  I had better luck with the driver than the irons. Thanks for the ideas.
    • I'm 63. I was using a 12 degree driver with a senior flex shaft. The ball ballooned to much and I had too much dispersion. I have changed the shaft to a slightly heavier shaft in stiff flex and gotten much better results.
    • I agree that a lot of pros and really good players end up at a similar angle at impact as they started.  In this example, would it make mike more consistent/better if he started with his hands higher but got to the same impact angle that he currently does?  Maybe, I’m not an instructor.  Just seems like an easy thing to point out that might not be the most important thing to change, at least not directly.  
    • I usually don't mind, but every once in a while....... My son, his buddy and I frequently play on weekdays. We play "ready golf". If you are ready, hit it. We can easily do 18 holes in under 3 hours with no obstructing traffic.  Last time my son and I got paired up it was at the turn,  with a couple guys who wanted to make sure the guy who hit was away, double check honors on the tee, etc etc.  And, quite frankly, these guys were just not very good. We had done the front in 1:15. Back side took 2:30. With no one ahead of us. I was so ticked off after the 11th hole my game went to Hades, but I was still better than these clowns, by at least 2 strokes a hole.
    • Seems to be true if you look at Moe Norman's swing. His angle at impact is the same as at address.
