What Does It Mean If My Divots Point to the Left? (Video)

The question is what does it s mean if my divots are actually pointing to the left hand side as a right-handed golfer. Well the most obvious factor is that the club head has actually travelled in a direction where it has come around your body, here is a direction that we wish to hit. So if I set myself up to the target with my feet parallel and we swing that club and the divot is coming to the left-hand side, it’s going to produce one or two shots. The first thing the ball is going to travel in the direction where these tee pegs are and go to the left hand side, and we call that a pull when it goes straight to the left. If the divot comes across we can also get what we call a pull slash for the ball starts left in its journey and then curls on to the right-hand side.

So if you find yourself – your divots coming to the left-hand side which is very common for right handed golfer then you know you are coming across the ball. In another words you are swinging what we call Out-to-In. So what is Out-to-In? If I set myself up and I swing the club out-to-in, the club will travel first of all initially away from my body and then come back into my body. That’s what an Out-to-In swing is and it causes what we just mentioned this divot coming across from the two shots that we have mentioned from it. So a simple exercise will be to set up a ball in the middle and then what I want you to do it is to position two balls just slightly outside of the ball and I want you put a couple of balls here on the inside. And the whole idea now is we’ve created gateway. So from here we need to bring that club on the inside if you went on the outside of course we would catch that ball going back, so from here I want you to come on the inside and then concentrate on hitting through the gate outside the line. Remember if you were to go out-to-in we will catch the balls going back and catch the balls coming in. So create the gateway that keeps things very simple in their mind golf is complicated enough as it is. Set ourselves up bring the club back from the outside gate that we had and then from here hit out and we call this an in-to-out swing. So now you know what happens when you come across what it calls has been more importantly as a simple drill that actually change the path from out-to-in to in-to-out.
