One way that you can self-analyze your own performance is by checking your divot patterns. Now what we’re going to do in this series of videos is have a look at divots, have a look at toe divots to heel divots, heavy divots and lots of different divots in between, and how they can actually relate to you on the golf course. Specifically first of all, we're going to be looking at how you can take toe divots. So actually the club entering the ground with the toe causing either the club to twist on entry, and also talking about heel divots as the heel enters, and then the club could also twist over.

There are many different causes for this, and there are many different ways of analyzing this. One of the best ways first of all if you do have access is to actually first of all go in a smashma. Now smashma is something that club fitters use to analyze lie angle. What it can also do, it can also give you an indication of where on the [Indiscernible] you are actually striking the ground. Is it from the heel or is it from the toe? Generally speaking what you'll be seeing is if you're striking it too much from the toe, is the club will be entering onto an upright pattern here.

And if you're striking it from the heel it will be entering the ground on to shallower pattern here, too much of a flat position as far as the club is concerned. But what we're going to do in this series of videos is look at all the different reasons of why you would be hitting from the heel divots and from the toe divots and then move on from there.
