Happy Fourth of July!
One of the favorite things to do at the club it to practice golf. When practicing, we would encourage the proper technique on the range.
In the photos below, the proper position of the ball on the divot, is on the back side. Not only does this save on turf, it encourages proper ball striking. The photo also demonstrates the lines of divots with turf between. This is important as it creates a micro environment that promotes seed germination. These lines also make a narrower area for the grass to fill in from the sides. Imagine filling in from the sides the different areas shown in the photos.
The second photo is shown with the target to the right.
Have a safe and enjoyable Fourth!
