Taking a Divot in Front of the Ball

This is a PREVIEW of a PREMIUM video. To watch the entire video, click here.

Description

Taking a proper divot is something that is critical to crisp and consistent iron play, but if you don't know what a proper divot is, it's tough to know when things go wrong. In this video, I give you a drill to teach you how to get your divots in front of the golf ball at impact.


Video Practice Points
  • The left hand and left-side musculature control most of the conditions at impact - club face, swing plane, shaft lean, etc.
  • Learn proper form by training the left arm independently
  • Once the divot is consistently in front of the ball, practice hitting chip shots with the left arm
  • Review the Impact Alignment and Lag lessons for proper form
