    Paul ,Taking a divot with one of the irons in the bag is obvious ,if you perform your way ,with a tilted spine at impact and loose arms.
    Now what to do with the fairway woods and the hybrids ?
    With these clubs you hit the ball with the club descending ,less though than with the irons .
    I myself “brush “the turf with the sole of these clubs.
    If you “brush “too much the grass ,the club slows down and the ball doesn’t take off .
    If you don’t brush the grass, you thin the ball.
    Could you please elaborate more extensively on the subject as a complement to this nice video lesson and show us how you do it an another video lesson

    Paul, it looks like in this tip you are swaying forward more than I thought your technique teaches. I,ve been trying to rotate without swaying forward. Are you suggesting we add a little hip push forward, toward the target, as we rotate?

      It is a turn and shift at the same time. I don’t promote shift because if you end up in my touch the legs position you would have had to have shifted. So I know you will shift. I don’t know you will turn. So incorporate only enough lateral to go between your legs. Wide stance = too much shift. Too narrow = not enough shift.

      I certainly wasn’t trying to shift. I was just doing my normal swing.
