Any ball that is on the ground must be compressed to get it airborne. With your irons and wedges you should definitely see some turf move when hitting a shot. That being said, does it need to be a chunk of turf or a brush of the turf? Either can work but I prefer to see my players use the sole of the club in a shot for proper contact. If you see dirt and grass 6 grooves up the face your angle of attack is too steep. Work more body rotation into your action to help this and try to end up in balance with proper weight shift. Love to see the club drop on the ball and compress the ball with the use of gravity, don’t force the divot.
Good luck and quit digging up my range!!
