Down and Through Range Ball Stripe

For many years I have taught students how to take divots by taking a Driving Range ball and putting the stripe down at what would be 6 o’clock on a clock and having the golfer hit down and through the stripe. The stripe needs to be flush with the ground and barely in sight from the set up position. It seems simple but it really works for the golfer of all abilities. This starts the divot decent in the proper position to create better spin for the correct ball flight as well.
