This training aid will help you carve perfect divots on every shot
You can get far in golf learning to do three things well: Hitting the ball before the ground, keeping your clubface relatively square and making sure your swing path (aka the direction you swing the club) is fairly neutral.
The problem is, it’s not always easy to know if you’re doing those things well. That’s where the Divot Board comes in handy. The yellow circle represents the golf ball and the train-track lines the swing path at impact. The goal is to make a swing, hit the yellow circle first and send the club through the two lines.

Divot Board – Low point and swing path trainer
If you don’t, you’ll be able to tell immediately based on where the divot is. If it starts behind the yellow dot or too far in front, that’s a sign of a chunked or thinned shot, respectively. If the divot points to your right, that means you’re swinging severely from in-to-out, or over-the-top if the divot goes left.
You’ll need a coach and launch monitor to get the most accurate feedback. But for beginner golfers and those looking to get in some swings at home, the Divot Board can improve your swing without having to think too much about it.
