by Maura Hutchinson

In this Q&A - Tony Mclean asks, "Hi Mark, I hit the ball fairly straight but my divot faces left, is this something I need to try and fix? I don't think it is hindering my game in anyway I currently play off a 6 handicap. Would a straighter divot lower my handicap?”

Mark describes the relationship between the club, path and turf interaction. You might be surprised at what Mark has to say, let us know what you think and what your divots are like in relation to your shots.
