 Similarly, Can I understand when the OB line is on the right side, put the tee at the tee box on the right?

Yes, that's the whole idea. Smile

when i have this sort of problem (ball go straight right instead of fade right), it is usually caused by 2 area.

1. Standing too close to the ball
2. During downswing, my hip "sway" to the left, causing the club face to be opened instead of square.

Not sure if it works for you, but fixing these 2 problem usually resulted in my ball travelling straighter

for point 1, cautiously try to stand further away from the ball, hence creating more space for "clearing". Start with standing 1-2 inch away, and slowly adjust until you feel balance and able to clear your hand during downswing

for point 2, i have to keep telling myself not to move my hip during the downswing. sometimes i forgot and the same problem will happen again. instead of lateral movement, i am trying to achieve a hip-rotation

Hope it helps

Why don't u post a video of your swing here? Do remember to shoot DTL and FO view for ease of identifying the problems ... Am sure some Pros and low handicapper members could give u a tip or two after viewing your video ...  Smile

What if left side OB and right side water hazard with narrow fairway? E.g. Kranji first hole ...  Laughing
Which is the lesser evil? Obviously it's the water since you can drop the ball at point of entry. Very Happy 
I will either use a Hydrid 3 or FW #5 to tee off and address the ball at the centre of the tee box in this situation ...  cheers

Try to feel like you're hitting at the bottom right quadrant of the ball on impact (for right hander) ... You will see your ball flying neither right nor left. It'll go straight like an arrow ... This is to create an inside-out swing by feel ...

Maybe because it is a neoliberal capitalistic free market loving Republican? Try a Socialist ball. You don't want too left so centre-left might suit you.

where is the bottom right quadran of the ball? Is it the bottom of ball? Because right hand player cant play the ball from left bottom?

I play two round golf last weekend so didnt go to driving range, I follow you instruction stand farther to the ball. I found my ball now turn to left. Is that mean my swing plane is out inside?

Post your swing video to "me and mygolf"?

I got my swing mechanic by following their tips and drills from youtube. I still not able to swing nice and beautiful but i managed to launch all my long irons (3 hybrid, 3i, 4i, 5i) more consistent and straight (but still some fade some time). 
Able to smash my driver creating good impact sound, no distance though  Razz 
Striking clubs with hip rotation, lag and compression (not sure i did it right or not) but happy as long as the ball go straight.

And i can play low 100 now, hope breaking 100 soon.

Yes correct, especially with so many style of teaching out there.

I stick with modern golf, one ball position for all irons and same swing motion for all clubs.

Then start practicing me and mygolf drills... the perfect swing plane... club head alignment... hip rotation... add in lag slap... all together... couldnt even hit an iron 7 last month...  Crying or Very sad... after keep practicing the swing motion at home... managed to got it well 2 weeks ago... I hope i wont lost this swing mechanic... just keep practice the motion at home every night before going to sleep. 

Need to get myself swing consistent so i can go kill some buaya....  Twisted Evil

patience is really the key... no rush and just slowly practicing...

Anyway enjoying the game and companion is more important.
