if your ball finds a divot to rest in
he hit a wedge shot and carved a hefty divot out of the fairway
Jack Nicklaus, one of the game's best long-iron players, never seemed to take a divot .
Instead of looking at the downside of things, when you walk into the fairway and find your drive in a divot , look on the positive side.
Hit with a descending blow, and even take a small divot .
After every shot from the fairway, I always take a quick look at the divot I just made.
Then came the click as his iron met the ball and the immediate shower of turf that followed as his club gouged a divot .
Then pick out something close - a discoloration in the grass, a bush, an old divot - that's on the line of the shaft.
The one rule that I think is absolutely absurd is when they fill divots with sand and you're not allowed to lift your ball out of it.
Excluding the cost of fairway seeding, a typical program with bentgrass for greens, and divots on tees and fairways is about $2,500.
