There’s a lot of discussion about whether you still want to hit down with your mid irons, long irons, even hybrids. If the ball is on the ground, you don’t want to hit up on it. If you give the grass a haircut before you make contact with the ball, you lubricate the face and change the spin profile of the golf ball. Inconsistent spin creates inconsistent ball flight making it tricky to judge your distances.
At the same time, if your attack angle is too extreme, it will be really hard to make consistent contact.
It can be hard to judge and manage the bottom of your swing. With the Divot Board, it’s perfect. It couldn’t be any easier. You can see exactly where your club touches the ground each time.
As you practice with your mid-iron and Divot Board, you want your club path to have a mild inside out path. That means your swing had a nice radius and the divot moved fractionally to the left. Remember, you aren’t trying to thump the divot board and make it jump around. You want to take thin bacon strip divots.
