    Paul, should we be taking divots with a 4 or 5 iron as well? I can see taking divots with a 7or 6 iron, but not so much with the longer irons or even fairway woods….Is that correct thinking or not? Thx, Rand

      A very small divot, more of brushing the top of the grass with a 3-4 iron. 5iron would take a divot, the longer the club the more around your body you would swing vs a short iron which will swing more up and down.

  2. Great conceptual and practical video…. will look forward to response to RandMellor’s question. Thanks.

    Paul, where I practice they only have rather thin mats to his off of. Can you still practice a loose swing with full extension properly on grass mats?

      You can do, but this can sometimes cause harm to your arms from hitting into the mats. Hitting on mats in general is not great. Maybe find somewhere that has a better practice area, get a good mat and net for home or do lots of practice swings would be the other great options.
