Golf Tip – Ball in a Divot

October 16, 2015 Posted by Matt

DivotYou hit a great drive and you get to your ball and find it smack dab in the middle of a divot.  What rotten luck.  Now what?  When your nice drive ends up in a divot in the middle of the fairway, do not fret.  You can get a solid strike on the ball with the right technique.  The shot requires a steep, descending strike that catches the ball first and then explodes through the divot hole.  To learn this swing, place your ball in a divot hole on the range.  Roll up a towel and place it about eighteen inches behind  your ball.  Swing back then down and through to strike the ball while missing the towel.  This will force your club to make an upright back and down sing that will blast the ball out and up from this bad lie.
