What your divot says about your swing
Solid ball striking is by far one of the best feelings you can get when practising and when you're out on course. Finding that sweet spot on the club face will mean finding the right low point in your swing in relation to the ball.
One easy way to find your low point is to test your divots. To do this, draw a line and place the ball on the line. What you're looking for is a divot like the one on the left, one that occurs just in front of the ball. The middle divot is too far behind and the one on the right is too far forward. And of course, if you're not taking a divot with your irons at all, this is also not ideal.
What does it mean?
There are many reasons that your low point can occur too early or too late, and there is no "one size fits all" answer. The good news is if your divots occur before or after the ball placement, meaning you've lost control of where you're low point is, this can be fixed and you will find solid contact more often.
