for right handers...
pull your right feet slightly behind at address to promote an inside / flatter path when you take away your club - this will promote a draw in your downswing
pull your right feet slightly forward at address to promote an outside / steeper path when you take away your club, this will promote a fade shot in your downswing
make sense?

Surprisingly, by adjusting my right hand grip (yes, only right hand and others remain the same), i can shoot draw (strong grip) and fade (weak grip). I wonder why????

change of grip, change of swing path?

but i guess you got to be a real adaptable golfer or have a consistent 10/10 swings to be able to pull this off.


gripping is very personal. same with tennis. one forehand stroke, you get a thousand kinds of grips from the millions of players world-wide.

For a draw, I subscribe to the right foot shifting back a bit.
As for fade, I am naturally playing with slight fades now. According to my coach, it's becoz my upper body is coming up and straightening earlier than my downswing contact with ball.
So maybe can try my 'fault' to achieve a fade. Laughing

I'm your opposite... I fight a hook... so shorthitter sorted this out for me... hitting fades is doable these days for me Smile. can control a hook to a draw. What the heck, best to hit straight shots!!!
it is all down to the set up. I try not to change my grip.... keep it neutral. I dun want strong or weak grip... cos I may get very 'handsy' in my swing

i wish lah Bro SS... Maybe my YTS (youtube swing) can one day be as famous as the SS Swing

MC: i tried other ways like changing the alignment etc but this way still more consistent for me ... Weird huh ... I guess to be more consistent I need a mark on my grip, just like R9 driver adjustable hosel

I found a sure way to draw and fade your shots. Guaranteed! Or not your money back.

For a right hander, to draw...

Look for a right to left slope and putt with a smooth stroke.

to fade?

Look for a left to right slope and putt with a smooth stroke.


leftys... vice-versa...

Seems like according to ball flight laws, swing path decides if fade/draw...

Or in my case, how I execute my power slice/hook......

Sama sama leh.....

Correct me if wrong, but old flight laws says that swingpath will determine initial direction of ball, and clubface will determine if ball goes straight, left or right.

However, new flight laws is the direct opposite, stating that initial direction of ball is 85% determined by clubface alignment, and swingpath will determine if ball goes straight, left or right.
