If you find yourself in the awkward situation where your golf ball is finished in the bottom of somebody else’s old divots, the divot that hasn’t been repaired or replaced now unless you are playing wind to rules you can’t drop that golf ball out to the divot, you have actually you just got to play it from where it lies. So playing it from where it lies is going to be a difficult shot and it’s a shot that would normally require a lot of loft to hit the ball out of the divot, almost dig the divot a bit deeper with your short iron and get the ball up in the air, but if you want to try and generate as much distance as possible so maybe applying a long Par 4 or your second shot an Par 5, your ball is finished in the divot but you still need to hit the ball as far as possible.

I think the solution for this might be a hybrid club, hybrid clubs generally are a combination between a wood and an iron, have plenty of loft, a big rounded sole that would stop the club digging into deep but the loft on the low center of gravity is going to be designed to help you get underneath the ball and promote a much higher ball flight. So next time you find yourself in a position where your golf ball is sitting down in a divot. Don’t get too upset and not angry and depressed about it, these things happen. Take it as a nice challenge an opportunity to show your skills of how you can get the ball out. If it’s a short shot from the bottom of the divot, take a very lofted club, but if you want to try and generate a long shot and get as much power as possible consider using a hybrid you would play the ball a little bit further back then a normal hybrid shot normally you would play the hybrid a little bit more ahead of center so it would hook to a 4 or 5 iron ball position. If you are hitting it down out of a divot play it more from the center of your stance a real good descending blow because you got to get the club down underneath the ball, you get the loft on the hybrids and pop the ball out. So next time you are in a divot, use the hybrid to challenge yourself to see if he can get the ball flying a long way from that lie.
