During a round whether your a tournament professional or a club golfer playing in a medal round you will come under pressure at some point in the round when compiling a good score, so its useful to have a stock shot that you can revert to. Its easier to fade the ball as opposed to trying to draw it, since there’s a tendency to “hold onto” the clubface longer whilst trying to execute a draw. (right to left ball flight)
Therefore to hit the fade:
- Picture in your mind a left to right ball flight
- Aim the club face at your intended target.
- Then aim your body alignment, shoulders, hips and feet slightly left of your intended target.
- Let the arms and club swing along the body alignment created at the address.
- As you swing the club head through impact keep the logo on the back of your glove hand pointing at the target a little longer than normal.
- This delays the release of your right hand long enough to ensure that the ball starts slightly left of your intended target.
Our Golf Tips evening on the range will start again on Monday November 2nd and 23rd. (6.00-7.00pm). Everyone is welcome to attend for more information on their golf swing.
