    GREETINGS COACH I have been using the FAKE DRAW even before I joined IGNITION GOLF. There is a sharp dog leg ,par 5, on the course,i hood my 3 fairway metal,aim straight or a little right of straight and hit away and the ball hooks around the dog leg. Sometimes though the ball will go straight and will end up off the fairway,what happened,what did I do wrong?

    • John,

      If you are set up for this shot and it doesn’t draw you are locking your wrists through impact. This could be from hitting too hard but most likely it is you looking up early coming out of the shot to see if it is drawing. So stay focused and delay your reaction to see the result until you’ve hit it.

  2. So for a fade, the club head is still square, but you aim a bit left and swing along along your tow line. But for a draw, the club head is slightly closed and you aim right and swing along your toe line? Just want to confirm that the club head is square on a fade vs slightly closed on a draw

    • Randy,

      No. The face is where you want the ball to end up on both a fade and draw. You align your body right or left depending on the shot you want to hit. Once aligned swing down the line of your body.

  3. Hey Paul … cool tips

    1a- why is there no real fade with two flaws and a fake fade like the real draw with two flaws and a fake draw?

    1b – is it because of the body rotation is in the same direction..?

    2- so the set up for a right handed golfer to do the fake draw is the mirror opposite of the real fade as far as the club face closed (draw) or open(fade) to the obstacle (tree or dog leg) and the body alignment determines the club swing path around the obstruction wit the face creating the ball spin left or right… .?!

    I think I got it right… yes / no ?

    I tried the fade on the weekend around some tree branches from the right rough with a 5 iron ( had to keep the ball low – based on the fake draw tip I saw … I had not seen the fade tip so logic told me it was just the opposite of the fake draw tip and it worked… I was able to work the ball around the low tree branches without hitting it straight out onto the fairway… a little punch out about a 70 yard shot …

    first time i had done this so just committed to the shot which felt strange because hadn’t had a chance to practice it at the range which I plan to as draw and fade shots definitely will come in handy in certain situations …

    kind regards,

    Brian

    • Brian,

      1a – Because a real fade would be an over the top swing which would be a slice.

      1b – answered.

      2 – Yes, mirror opposite.

      Glad you tried it and it paid off. These shots are easy so there is no reason to get worried if you find yourself in these situations anymore. Do a little practice so you know for a fact that they ball will move the way I said it will based on these changes. Then you will be confident long into the future that you can do it.
