The Perfect Divot

Many higher-handicap golfers have an improper weight shift. This causes the student to slide with their hips and hit behind the golf ball. A simple, but effective drill can help most golfers to hit crisp iron shots. Take a short iron to start. Set up to the golf ball and take your stance. From here, simply take your trail foot and place it behind you. Make sure your trail foot is on your tippy toe. Feel your balance a bit off? I’ll bet you do! Now begin hitting half-shots (not full swings). Are you able to keep your balance? If so, you’ll be taking divots ahead of the golf ball, not behind it. Please visit for more tips!
