HOW TO TAKE A DIVOT AFTER THE GOLF BALL

If you have watched any golf on TV you will almost certainly have noticed the huge divots that get taken with the irons from the fairway, however the majority of amateur golfers struggle to do this and often pick the ball off the top of the turf.

This usually results in weak shots, often poor contact and high ball flights.

This short videos covers the concept of taking divots and explains some of the key moves and concepts that are required to really strike the golf ball well and get more from your irons shots.

  1. Divots are difficult to take for players who suffer from a lack of lag or wrist hinge regardless of what else was said here. Keeping the butt end of the club pointing towards the ball for as long as possible on the downswing was the only thing which helped me.

  2. Chris, sounds reasonable, but when I watched this swing in slow motion it wasn’t obvious that your hands were actually moving up around impact, or at least not as far as I could tell. Is this move more of a “feel” rather than a description of what actually happens? Or maybe I’ve misunderstood what you are saying.

  3. I usually manage to brush the turf after strike but rarely take a divot. In order to lower the hands, I would have thought you either need to lean forward from the hips or lower the knees. Which is correct or is a combination of both?
