|Meaning||Chunk of grass and soil|
A divot is a golf term for a chunk of grass that is displaced. It is created when a swing of a club makes contact with the ball and the ground.
Divots are usually the result of a golf stroke with an iron or wedge because of the downward strike of the swing. Some divots are shallow while others are deep depending on the swing. It makes sense to think that it's a product of a poor swing but it's actually a common result from good swings depending on the club used.
"I think he left 5 divots all over the 4th hole."
