  • Correct address position: should the toe be slightly elevated?

    I think the title says it all. Just clowning around with a sand wedge and when I addressed ball with toe up slightly the divot made was like a perfect dollar bill and not deep. Generally speaking should one address the ball with the toe up?

    Hi guys,

    I want to say that I address the ball with EVERY club in my bag with the toe (somewhat) UP?

    I've always attributed that to (what I believe to be) a consideration in shaft design that I refer to as "droop"?
    That is the downward pull of Gravity on the clubhead that flexes the shaft into a more "toe-DOWN" orientation
    when the club is put into motion
    ...

    Toe-up at address allows room for the "droop" to bring the sole of the club to "flat" at impact.

    I'm not a club-designer in anyone's opinion, but I've thought this way as a player for centuries...
