You now want to look at impact. Based on the ball flights, ask yourself where the clubface was pointing at impact. Is your divot fat or thin and what direction was it going? Is the divot toe deep or heel deep? Was the ball impact with the face more toward the toe or heel? Again, it is important to look at these elements because they will lead you to understand your golf swing and teach you how to fix it. Golf swings come in patterns. You want to learn your patterns and use it as information to find a better impact.
