I get asked a lot about taking a divot. When, how much, is it really necessary?
Take another quick look at this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPYtlZ78i8A (or become hypnotized like I do and watch 1 min and 45 seconds of it…. again. Bam, I’m a better golfer.)
Anymore questions about divots? Look in front of the ropes.
Divots are good. As long as the body is rotating around the forward pivotal axis, the hard metal club will cut through ground like a warm knife through butter.
