Where should the ball be in your stance to hit a draw?
To draw the ball (a right-to-left curve for right-handed golfers), play the ball a little farther back than normal, about the center of your stance with an iron and just forward of that for a wood.
Why am I hitting a draw?
If it’s a pull, there are two likely reasons why the ball is starting left: 1) your body and clubface are aimed left of the target at address, which promotes an out-to-in path; or 2) you’re aiming properly but the clubface is closed too much at the point of contact.
Is it better to hit a draw or fade?
“Provided the ball speed, launch angle and spin rate are the same, a draw and fade will carry and roll the same distance. However, from a practical perspective, most club golfers will hit a draw further than a fade, because when they hit a draw they reduce the loft, leading to lower spin rates.
Why can’t I hit a draw?
The last and perhaps most common reason you can’t hit a draw is that you have an over-the-top swing path. If you’re swinging over-the-top (on an out-to-in path), it’s impossible to hit a draw. This is because an over-the-top swing will result in a shot that starts to the left of your target line.
Why do pros hit fades?
Spin loft is exemplified as golfers find themselves much more accurate with their wedges than their driver. More spin equals more stability, and this leads us to why professional players opt for their fade.
