Why You Don't Need Divots to Hit Great Shots


Have you seen the video going around with Tiger Woods and Scottie Scheffler discussing divots?

Scheffler notices Tiger hitting iron shot after iron shot without taking any divots. 

When Scheffler askes, 'What’s up with the no divots?"...

Tiger says, "when I’m flushing it, I don’t take divots."

Scheffler is visibly perplexed, and if you are, too, check out the above video from a recent golf lesson I gave.

In it, I'll explain "the flat spot," and why you don't necessarily need to take divots to hit great shots.

First, I'll show you what it looks like on a mat...

And then directly off the grass.
