Check your divot


Q: On short wedge shots from 75 yards in I am constantly pulling the ball left of target and short. Can you help me understand what I am doing wrong?

A: First things first, what is your divot doing? You'd be surprised at how much information your divot can give you. Odds are if you're pulling your shots than your divots should be pointing left of target, try this instead; put down two clubs about a foot apart and parallel to one another. Make sure that they are pointing towards your target and hit balls in between those clubs. The idea is to make your divots point more towards the target. You practice this enough and your friends will be calling you Jim "The Laser"!!!
