How do pro golfers hit a draw?
To hit a draw you must have a closed club face at impact to turn the ball right to left. It’s impossible with an open club face as the ball will fade left to right. Most of this golf swing starts with the setup and is the exact opposite of a fade setup.
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 am I hitting a draw with my irons?
The upper body obstructs or interferes with the club’s path to the ball. The most common reason players get stuck is, they don’t keep the arms and club in front of the chest as they turn back and through. When the club trails the upper body on the way down, the hands have to flip the clubhead over to recover.
Is a hook better than a slice?
