In spite of today’s rain dump, spring seems to finally be here, and I’m sure you golfers are sick of hitting off mats. As you return to the course, this spring- and real turf – it is my duty to remind you of the importance of getting down and dirty with it, and by doing that, you will find yourself hitting crisp golf shots much more often.
For some reason, many golfers are afraid to make divots when they hit a shot. Maybe they’re afraid to ruin the grass, but hear me now, IT WILL GROW BACK! Exposing a little dirt and killing a few chunks of fairway means you’re compressing the golf ball and striking it in the center of the club face. Do not be afraid to kill turf. Carl Spackler may not be too pleased, but I guarantee your ball striking will improve!
