I’ve written before about the desirable shape of a divot and how most golfers don’t really understand this aspect of ball striking, but an email from Pritchard D. made this topic make its way back to the top of my mind. Specifically he was asking about why he makes a divot with his irons, but not his wedges, which I’ll try to answer for him, but the subject of divots leads to much more examination. Let’s start with Pritchard’s question:
“Should I be trying to take a similar divot with my gap wedge as I do with my 6 iron? Or is there a better way to teach myself to control trajectory and shape with my 120 yds and in approaches?”Well, Pritchard, in the perfect world, all things being equal, your divots should be shallower as you go from the wedges to the longer clubs in the set, to where you are mostly sweeping the ball off the turf with your fairway woods. All golfers are different, however, and some take deeper divots than others. As to your “problem” of taking little to no divot with your wedges, I’d start by examining the length and lie angles of your wedges as opposed to your irons, and you may find them a little shorter, which could contribute to that problem. Other factors could be a differential in weight and shaft material/flex. I preach daily that it is very important to optimize your short game that your wedges be matched to each other, blended to your irons, and fitted to you. That is the way to optimize your scoring with these important clubs.
On the subject of divots in general, however, they can often be the “secret” to issues with your swing, set-up and alignment. Here are a few of the things that I look for in “divot autopsies” that can help you improve:
And Pritchard, you are the winner of a new EIDOLON wedge. Congratulations.
