Other Causes Of Deep Golf Divots (Video)

If you’ve improved your technique following on from the previous video, you now think you are in a better position with your body yet you are still struggling to strike the ball correctly even though you think you’ve improved your technique. What we can now look at is all the areas that might cause the issue with the taking of a deep divot particularly if the golf swing is taking too deeper divot and you feel like you are losing power.

One of the key areas to look at would be the ball position, if I have the ball position too far back in my stance, so my body weight here, the ball should be really here for the seven iron that I’ve got, but I’ve got the ball back in my stance, base club as it strikes down into the ball, is simply just going to crash down into the floor again. Consider the idea before landing the plane gently or crashing the plane into the ground. If the plane comes down before the runway, it’s generally going to come down too steep crashing to the ground that’s going to cause me quite big problems with too deeper divot. Other considerations might be the ill-fitting equipment that you might have. If you got a set of golf clubs that aren’t suitable to you, they might be too long, they might be too heavy, they particularly might be too upright. So tool right there is a golf club that sits a little bit like this, if you were to hold it flat to the floor and more importantly you are probably holding it like this and the toe end is leaning up into the air so the heel of the club is on the ground. If that club was to hit into the floor, the heel is going to hit into the ground too much, turn the club face over and you are going to get some pretty awkward pull shots mainly because the clubs aren’t suitable to you. One of the area of concern might just be swinging the golf club too hard towards the ball, so you are setting up in a good position, everything is looking good. I think you really go for it and you try and hit the ball as hard as you can, if you get too aggressive and too steep in your down swing, you jam the club into the ground and you are just swinging with really poor balance. So we’ve got the factor in all those little areas into your swing to make sure that your technique is right but also those other issues with ball position, the equipment and swinging too hard are right to give you the best chance of striking the ball without taking too deep a divot.
