If a really good player who can control the low point takes a divot 2-3 inches in front of the ball then in theory they could place a tee in the ground and put the ball in the same place every time. The second shot would have the club go into the previous divot and nothing would be taken from the ground.
If this is true, why does this not really happen? The professionals, who are like surgeons, seem to use up a 1 foot X 1 foot area of turf or more when they are warming up.
Is this because people need the divot feedback/feel?
Just wondering, I am not consistent enough to try it yet.
