Talk To Me Divot

Your divot can tell you a lot about what is going on with your swing.  If your divot is not pointing at your target, here are a few check points:

-Alignment: are you lining up properly to your target?

-Swing Path: If you are aligned properly, but your divot is left or right of your target, this indicates your swing path is off.  This will lead to directional issues with ball flight as well as possible injury.

-Angle: If the toe or heal area of the divot is deeper than the rest of the divot, you may need to adjust the lie angel of your clubs to fit your swing.
