…and golf balls.
Don’t get me wrong, if you make a natural swing and the ball turns over…awesome. Enjoy it and be the envy of all your friends.
Right now I am inundated with online and real life students who got obsessed with the draw and I am having to assist them with unmanageable swing paths and major swing faults that were the result of forcing the club inside out.
A well hit fade DOES NOT go shorter than a well hit draw.
The fact that a hook goes farther than a slice has no relevance.
I’ll let you in on a little secret. When I competed in long drive, I most often hit a fade. My winning drive was a fade.
I will leave you with two rhetorical questions. Which swing pattern will allow you to continue to speed up your acceleration? Which one is easier to execute for golfers who don’t have 20 hours a week to practice?
1. A club path where you are slightly out to in and you will be able to rotate harder to keep the club from rotating too much so it will remain slightly open and hit a fade.
2. A club that is underneath the plane (too far from the inside) and your body needs to stall and flip the hands in order to keep it from going way right and will more often turn into a hook than a perfectly timed draw?
