    Sometimes, maybe often, I don’t take a divot with my 7, 8, 9 iron, but I still hit good shots. Should I be doing something different? OR is this OK? Thanks.

      This is you using your arms to hit the ball. You need to lighten up even more.

      Why You Do Not Take Divots: http://ignitiongolf.com/not-take-divots/

      Pros take divots so you should be taking a divot. Now, if you are a 4 hdcp or better and you don’t take a divot then we may let you get away with it but anything higher than that and you are doing something wrong.

  2. Am I correct that your posture is such your head is basically the same height off the ground for an 8 iron or a 3 wood, but that the swing arc is different (wider for the 3 wood, steeper for the 8 iron) because of the shaft length?

    I hope I stated this correctly


    • Bob,

      You would be approximately the same height. People like to stand taller with longer clubs.

      The shaft length plays a huge role in taking or not taking a divot. Longer the club the flatter it swings, the less divot is taken.
