I recently posted a video on youtube discussing Moe’s address position and the importance of Shaft lean into impact. I mentioned the importance of taking a divot and one of the comments on the post mentioned the following:
“But MOE never took a divet, or very rarely did he. He even said it himself”.
I replied: “Moe took divots albeit shallow. As Moe said “Bacon strips, not pork chops”.
Let’s set the record straight.
Moe’s divots were shallow and yes, they “bacon strips”. Of course it depends on the lie of the golf ball but from most well manicured fairways, you must take a slight divot with an iron to strike the ball solidly.
