How to practice
The photo shows the correct ball placement for practicing. By placing a ball on the back edge of the divot, we are impacting a minimal amount of turf. Once about a foot of turf is removed, the ball can be placed at the front of the divot and inside enough to leave a strip of turf between divot lines. The strip of turf allows a micro environment that is optimum for germination, an encourages lateral growth narrow enough to help the divot fill in quicker.
Please share this with anyone who enjoys to practice the game and likes to hit off of healthy turf.
I also have a video demonstrating the process on theworldofturf you Tube channel.
Tomorrow.....changing grass types on the range and why!
