Range Tee Divots (the right way)

The image above is horrific enough to give me sleepless nights.  Someone was hitting range balls in this area who clearly has had no instruction in the proper way to practice on the range tee.  Hitting on natural grass all year long is a luxury that our membership cherishes, but if everyone wasted grass like this person, they would loose that privilege.  You can see that this person took a full divot with each shot.  Also, this person spread out his or her shots over such a large area that there is no room for the next person to practice because now that person will have to stand in divots or move to a different hitting station. 
Now in this picture above, you can see this person really knows how to practice.  All of the divots are taken so that there is no wasted grass, and also now someone could easily walk up to this hitting station and find plenty of grass to use during their own practice session.

Personally, I think the best way to take divots is as shown above.  There is no wasted grass between divots, and the narrow strips of grass between the rows of divots helps the grass fill in so recovery is faster.  To learn how to do this, watch the video I made.  Please click on the shortcut below and pay attention.
