Question

Are you supposed to take a divot with a Fairway Wood?

Bobby’s Answer

This is an excellent question and one that doesn’t have a definitive answer. There are several factors that determine if a divot is “appropriate”.

Can you guess what they might be?

Let’s discuss it in today’s video.

  1. I just watched the3 wood video on which you said, the3 wood is the hardest club to hit in the bag. I wonder why it’s the only club I my bag that I hit constantly well? More so than even my wedges…why do you think?

  2. Succinct explanation is refreshing. Too often instructors think they must be verbose for a student to understand their concepts. Less is more so thank you Bobby…well done!

  3. One of the best explanations yet. To show the actual club face and where it is to meet the ball now shows me the actual hit. Well done

  4. I am 80 years still hit a drive 250 or more , but my angle of attack is so steep that I never take a divot. I use all hybrids.
    How can I flatten it out to make a shallower swing to hit the driver on the upswing?
    Thanks Ralph.

  5. Please tell me how I can correct my divots. Mine are lone and skinny made from the toe of the club. Do I need a flatter lie or more of an upright one??? Thanks.

Bobby,

Thanks for all the great tips! I really enjoy them, but I need your help. I’m an 8 handicap player and score okay, however, I know I save the shot with my hands and want the feeling of being able to let it go through impact. Any tips or drills to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bobby,

I strike the ball on the sweet spot, most when I keep my left arm straight on the back swing. This shows me my true flexibility- or should I say lack of! And I can only turn about to the 9 o’clock, or parallel to the ground position. I’m 66 and play four or five times a week. Where does the straight-left arm fit in your impact teaching, or does it?

My best swing produces a high draw, but every round I have swings where my driver hits the ground first, causing the club to snap shut and I hit a DISASTROUS low duck-hook! What causes this drop-kick and how do I correct it?
