Unofficial Review Thread: The Divot Board

Recommended Posts

First update: I placed my order on Monday; I received my shipping notification the same day.

USPS. Nuts.

But a round of applause for the Postal Service on this one: they've actually beaten their scheduled delivery day. The Divot Board started its journey in California, with a scheduled delivery of Saturday. When I checked this morning, it was on the truck for delivery today, a day early. I should be able to grab it at lunch and give it its first test swings this afternoon.

I was literally trying to find places that make custom pattern sequin fabric to build my own but gave up 🙂

Saw this talked about on another golf forum. Interesting idea, but also not so interested at that price.

But...

As I'm reading MPR's posts, a thought (possibly brilliant, but more possibly not) popped into my head -- would spraying a stripe with Dr. Scholl's foot spray (or, say, spreading a little chalk or flour) onto your hitting mat effectively serve the same function??

You could do those but you would have to redraw the lines every shot. The aid just requires you to sweep the mat in the opposite direction; just seconds with you clubhead.

I have one as well... Initial impressions:

- the rubber base is thick and sturdy, almost 1" all in unless used on a surface where the rubber spikes can dig in. Given how much Adam Young talks about arc depth (I've bought all 3 three of his subscriptions) I feel you need a stance mat to go along with the Divot Board. 

- I've began using it for a "9 Box" drill mentioned by Lou Stagner on a podcast: hitting inside/outside edge and center of board in front of, behind, and in line with the ball mark to add some differential practice on ground contact.

- getting ground impact location and path direction feedback without a ball is valuable 

- compact and portable, I throw it on my living room floor and take full swings barefoot in the house. The thick rubber base eliminates any worry of damage to my hardwood floors or hard feedback on the joints. 

Mine has about 100 swings on it, I was initially concerned as there is visible wear and tear after the first few solid strikes. But after some minor damage it hasn't changed much over the last few sessions. I can see it being useful for thousands of hits even if a few sequins fall off. They all appear to be individually stitched to the board.

Would the rukket stance mat suffice or are there better cheaper opinions out there? In theory, wouldn’t it also change being shoes vs barefoot?

Except for the tee box, there is not a flat stance at my course... or at least I never hit the ball there if there is one.

So if you think about the price, that’s about ten large buckets of range balls for the ability to practice at home with no net. I may just pull the trigger

I would use a yoga mat or area rug or something else cheap. Doesn’t need to be turf just to stand on. Barefoot doesn’t help either, but if it’s already 1” too high another 1/4-1/2” isn’t going to matter. Not trying to ingrain the height either way.

I just don’t know if I could even hit the board properly with it elevated. I have a hitting mat that is two-to-three times that wide and it gives me the heebie-jeebies!!!
