There are many benefits for golfers that can hit a draw shot or a fade shot when needed. Being able to hit the proper shot will allow you to get closer to the green, get up and down easily, and with less risk of going too far around the corner or taking a big enough divot to end up in the rough.
There is no doubt that the draw is easier to hit. It is easier to get the ball to go straight, but harder to hit a fade. We all know what a straight shot looks like, but the problem is that we all want to hit it a little further. This is the reason why people do not always hit their draw shots correctly.
The draw is a good shot for beginners, unless you are really off center in your stance. This means your feet are far apart and are positioned so that your knees are closer together than when you are hitting a fade. There are certain rules that must be followed when hitting a draw, and they are as follows.
How to Hit a Draw
1. The ball must be played forward. It must be hit so that the center of the club face is on the back of the ball. If you hit the ball a little forward, it will go straight.
2. The club must be struck very hard. The ball must be struck to hard so that the ball will fly straight. You should not be able to feel the club digging into the ground.
3. The ball must be hit to roll. If you hit the ball to far back, it will turn towards the hole, and if you hit it to far forward, the ball will get hung up on the grass.
4. A great deal of power must be applied. You need to make sure that you hit the ball as hard as possible to ensure that it is hit straight. If you miss these four things, you will not hit a draw.
This is the reason why people do not always hit their fade shots correctly. This is the reason why beginners often fail to hit their fade shots accurately. It is important to learn how to hit the ball so that you will not hit your fade shots out of bounds. With that in mind, here are some simple tips that can help you to correct your mistakes.
How to Hit a Fade
1. Your stance should be very open. You need to place the ball in the middle of your stance, with your feet about a shoulder width apart. This is the best way to hit a fade. It is the stance that many professionals use, and it is also the best way to hit a draw.
2. The back swing should be a little faster than the down swing. For a draw, it is the reverse. The back swing should be slower than the down swing, and for a fade, it is the reverse.
3. Make sure that you are hitting the ball with a square club face. To make sure that you are hitting the ball correctly, you need to make sure that your hands are placed directly over the ball. If they are not, it will cancel out the difference in the width of your stance.
4. Your hands should be placed just before the ball when you are making your swing. Your hands should be ahead of the ball, as if you were swinging a golf club through the ball.
These four things are the most important ways to hit a fade, draw, and slice. If you are missing these four things, you are probably taking the club back to far to the inside. It is best to place the ball in the middle of your stance. Next, place your feet about a shoulder width apart. Make sure you are swinging the club with a smooth swing. Make sure you are hitting the ball with a square club face. Lastly, ensure that your hands are directly over the ball when you make your swing. Having your hands ahead of the ball will keep the club face square.
