Heck no. I'm nowhere near good enough to notice any real difference.

Square grooves were not outlawed. The majority of wedge grooves that are made today are "square."

The volume and spacing were modified, though. And corner roundness.

Oh ok thats what Ive noticed. I think it was 08 or 09 so if your clubs were manufactured before that it wouldnt be rellevant.

The other part about this is that, with consistent use at least, then you will likely end up getting more spin off of fresh conforming grooves rather than older non-conforming grooves. I know this is the case for me, as I had a Vokey wedge from a few years before the groove change and I can't get near the spin from that as I do my current wedges. That being said, it's likely time for me to get new wedges again in the next year or two since I am starting to see little nicks and indents in the face, as well as having tried some of the new wedges. I don't really need the spin itself, but my wedges are starting to give inconsistent spin (sometimes more, sometimes less) depending on how the ball will grab the small scrapes and cuts in the face that came from range balls and sand/dirt.

    • Video tape yourself making a slow backswing  to the length you want and hold the position. Make a mental note of what it feels like. Then try to make a swing and make a mental note of what the swing felt like, how much turn, how much did the arms move. Then check the video. See if you hit your the swing length you want. If not then do the slow swings again, hold the position you want. Then make another swing but this time try to shorten it up. If need to, swing like 50% backswing turn rates. Check the video, how closer were you? Keep doing it till you get the swing where you want it.  This is what I do to try to teach myself to swing shorter. It will take some time, but it gets easier over time. For me, my driver is a between A2-A3 swing length feel that gets me A4. 
    • I nit pick a lot.  I'm smarter than the average voter. I actually read the voter pamphlet. I study the issues in the campaign and research the candidates. There's a lot of propaganda out there. For Trump, where's the beef? Trump steaks? I don't see any beef. I just see a lot of hot air.  I'd still like to know how he's going to kick 11 million people out of the country without having a secret police force. It'll involve racial profiling and people will have to make sure they have their papers in order. They may even be citizens but still get caught up in the sweep because they don't have their papers in order. Does everyone have their papers in order? Plus who is going to pick next season's crops? I know that's stereotyping but still.  His statement on immigration... all countries have shown themselves to be vulnerable. So... no more immigration? We're a nation of immigrants. Tariffs worked really well for Herbert Hoover.  Hillary is no saint. That's a given. But damn.  
    • Steve Stricker is grouped with David Toms and Rich Beem. How many fans can correctly identify who isn't the past champion in that threesome?
    • Since it's law in Virginia that a Governor can only serve on term in office at a time it makes it difficult to gauge their time there. During his time as Governor the state of Virginia was one of three states to earn the highest grade in terms of management in a report by the non-partisan Pew Center on the States. Also, Virginia took first place each year from 2006 to 2009 in the "Best States For Business" rankings published by Forbes magazine. I think he's a good pick as VP. Virginia has gone Democrat the last two elections.  For his term in the Senate he's got a very good relationship in working with both Democrats and Republicans.   
    • Don't you think deporting 11 million (or whatever the figure is) undocumented/illegal immigrants will take a pretty big government? How about building a giant border wall? Or the 35% tariff he would impose? Oh, and don't forget he promised not to touch entitlements.
