How to hit or draw a fade by changing your setup

Hitting draws and fades in command is not as difficult as it seems.


The biggest difference between a good and great player is the ability to work the ball left or right in command.

Fortunately for us entertaining humans, this is not as hard as it sounds!

Here’s an easy blueprint for hitting fades (left to right shots) and draws (right to left shots) courtesy of LPGA Rachel Drummond and GOLFTEC instructor Nick Clearwater.

How to beat the fade

1. Move the ball in your stance, and allow your stance to be slightly open.

2. Focus on maintaining lag on your slope.

3. Keep your body and clubface inactive by influence.

Clearwater suggests that the clubface be more open when you swing to your finish position.

“Because I changed my setup and moved the ball forward, the face naturally opened up a little more on the way,” Drummond confirmed.

How to strike a draw

1. Move the ball back slightly in your stance.

2. The clubface is naturally more closed by impact, promoting the right-to-left path.

Keep in mind that moving forward and backward in your posture is not intense – ball-width is enough to make a difference.

The best part about these keys is that you don’t need any changes to your swing – small adjustments to your setup can make a big difference.
