My short game improved substantially after getting Dave Pelz' Short Game Bible and a set of GOOD wedges, including a 60°, which I use more than any club in my bag except my putter. I can play all sorts of trajectories from all sorts of lies with the 60 that I can't with even the 56. My 56 has 12° of bounce my 60 has half of that.

Check how sharp the grooves are. My first 60 was a cheaper version. I couldn't get good spin with it.

I love hitting my 60 degree. Its just so easy to stop. Its great for chipping and pitching. You take 50% to 75% swings and it goes like 30 to 40 yards. Everyone should get one. Ideally everyone should have a pitching wedge, a gap wedge, a sand wedge and a lob wedge.

The bounce is supposed to depend on the lies you usually play and your swing type. The more the bounce the steeper the swing type and the thicker the lie. As to types of wedges I always play Clevelands. They have the best feel for me. I would try to feel both a Vokey and a Cleveland CG. Ditch the Callaway. But thats me....

Why do you say ditch the Callaway? Roger Cleveland designs them....

I guess I feel that he would put more effort into the clubs that bear his name. And everyone that doesnt play Cleveland plays Vokeys....

Ive used vokey wedges since i was a 23 handicap and they were worth there dollar!
I bought a lob wedge aswell and that helps loads around the greens, its all about practicing with tht club though!

    • Going through the list, and happen to find Sand Valley (25th) and Lawsonia (23rd) 🙂 Best public golf courses 2021-22: GOLF's Top 100 Courses You Can Play For the first time our ranking of the best public-access courses ventured outside the United States into Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean. Enjoy!  
    • I know this is off topic but wanted folk to know that if they install the 14.5 update it's important that they now get the 14.5.1 update which fixes some security issues with the 14.5 update: Apple releases critical iOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1 security updates The iOS and iPadOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1, and watchOS 7.4.1 updates contain security patches along with an App Tracking Transparency fix. Thanks.  
    • I think you’re on the right track with this. You don’t want to lift the heel just for the sake of lifting it, but you also don’t want to forcibly keep it down, either. Some people can make a good turn without lifting the lead heel and some can’t. The heel itself is not the important part.
    • I find, as an old geezer just a bit away from the edge of the mortality table, that lifting the lead heel and letting my lead knee point towards or even slightly behind the ball, gives me a bit more rotation and the act of replanting it improves my pressure shift to the lead foot. My handicap is slowing creeping downwards so it seems to be working for me or, at least, it FEELS like it's working...  😈
    • Yeah, for sure! 🙂I work in Technical Support for a living and deal with end users all day long so I understand the importance of caring for the user and the importance of sharing information in forums like this. They've dropped the ball quite a bit on this one in my eyes, but hopefully they can rebuild that trust back for those of us who are willing to stick through it with them.  I ended up buying Pro with the discount they gave me. Figured why not try it. It's version 3.0. They have a 30 day return policy and if it just ends up being crappy for whatever reason(s), I'll just return it and hope the app gets updated and stick with Live. Plus, I got a buddy who had Classic and I could give him my Live version if all things align how we want them to.
