bad divots?

Dewsweeper writes in that they are having trouble with divots that are thin and toe in at the end of the divot. The result of this is that they are not hitting it solid. They would like to know what does this mean whats the fix?
This means the club is being pushed through or maneuvered with your hands.

This requires you to rely on timing to hit the ball solid and costs you distance as well as accuracy.
Here is a thought I use frequently when helping my students play better.

Hit little shots and think of dragging the face through the turf with your body
Practice hitting small shots trying to make the divot stay as wide as the face of the club for the entire divot. In order for the divot to remain wide you will have less hands.
