Check your stance. Pull your right leg back on address to force the Start of the ball flight to the right. Address the ball more to middle and consciously turn over the right hand to the right of intended path. You should the start to see a push flight to the right for a start then practice turning over the hand till it starts to draw back left. Hope it works for you. Very Happy

my guess is my swing and not the equipment.

i have tested no less than 10 drivers.

all same.

Only when i use a heavier shaft, i don't fade more

Is it a Fade or a slice? These days, FADE is being loosely used among the social golfers. BTW, strong Fade can be a good thing ... Mnay tour pros prefer fade to draw (unless they really need to execute a draw shot) ...

Not slice, fade

Sometimes baby fade. sometimes adult fade haha

If one can carry 160-180m, sure can cross water.
Fade on hole 8 is safer than hooking it.
Hole 8 is dangerous if hookers are around.
The red / white tee boxes on hole 6 are sure targets even if it is OB.

Also, you can borrow Hole 7 fairway by slicing and then attack from there

Flash

If u add in a 2 club head wind. Will be tough. Only once I cross water going left to right

And I balance of 130m-140m. 

I'm not a long hitter. So that hole I need to hit draw or straight

does a draw shot really carry much further? Read an article that the difference is not really that much

One tip that works for me in days when the ball is leaking right, is when addressing the ball for a teed up ball, don't place the face of driver directly behind the ball
If you do (for right hander), your right hand will be more forward, causing your right shoulder to be 'opened' relative to target line 

Instead try this, place the face of your driver 4-6 inches to the right of your teed up ball.
Your right shoulder will be more square to target line at address or even slightly closed

This will give you more time at downswing to square or even close your club face at impact
Thereby promoting a draw or straighter shot

Strong head wind lah... should you be keeping i low then trying to bomb it high.. if strong headwind.. and driver goes high.. fade draw.. whatever also no use. I remember i have to up 3 clubs there to try to get from the bunker left to green when the wind is sebei strong.

True that
Army hole #8 now is playing into a stiff headwind now

But Andrew is asking how to go from left to right 
To become right to left mah... 

Hit high or hit low I dunno how leh scratch
