The shape and formation of your divot will tell you a lot about your swing.

Divots tell a big story and won’t lie.  If your swing is too steep, the divot will be too deep.  If your swing is too shallow, your divot will be too minimal or even non-existent.  If you’re slicing or hooking the ball, the divot hole can point at the evidence.

I ran across a great video that surmises everything you need to understand about how divots affect your game, your swing, and ultimately your scoring, all using a 1 dollar bill!
