I have a question; would it be much more difficult to try hit the ball in the same arc position and draw or fade it, only with how much open or close someone has the clubface in the moment of impact?
howdy from texas shawn. as a 5 handicap, i took a couple lessons cause i felt it's what i needed to get down to scratch. my balls are now flying more erratic than ever. i've got a nasty push slice going on, my shots are so unpredictable i'm embarrassed to take it out on the course. any advice would be fantastic. thanks!
@senorchipotle I know how you feel; you got a lesson from someone who advocates you going to different positions to "hit the ball better" right? Please see my "golf pro lesson the insanity of golf" and then to "golf pro lesson ridiculously easy" to get the right mind set; then GET MY DVD SERIES and get yourself the right base to move forward from; you can rest assured that I have, AND CONTINUE, to do my homework. Thanks for posting! Shawn
@houhou75 You will see through time and experience that you will come to realize the importance of the ball position for each shot;
Thanks for the post! Shawn
@devosooner I have posted the answer for Jordan on the "golf pro lesson work the ball part 2" video; and this was definitely not a dumb question! 🙂 I will be doing a video on this soon; Stay tuned!
looks like somebody read the stack and tilt book….
how do u remember what a fade is and what a draw is(direction wise) ?
Re: Trackman never showing a straight shot. The Pro Tracer device they use is never set up directly behind the ball on the target line, it's set up outside the target line, so you'll never see a "straight" looking shot.
@manvesh97 The same way you remember which is your left hand and which is your right hand
@senorchipotle You are basically hitting a slice from an inside to out path right? Your path is pretty good I assume but your clubface is open at impact which enables the ball to start to the right I think you spin out your hips you hips are very active in the downswing and because of that your arms can't collaborate with your hips and your arms are come waybehind you. Try to feel in your swing that you are just swinging with your arms ofcorse this does not happen feel ai'nt real. Hope it helps.
@craigt611 Better to adjust the grip-club relationship first so that all you need to do is LET THE SWING RELEASE TO THE DIRECTION YOU WANT TO START IT without needing to make any compensations throughout; we have many threads on this subject in my forum; have a look! Shawn
@oldTOtaper I would also look at how centered you are staying in the swing; if the swing's center is not stable enough, then the spray angle and curvature will increase; my draw is just a half ball to a ball back of centre and fade a half ball or a ball forward; see part 3 of this one and then see "Awareness to low point in the swing; shawn clement" as wel as "Make a circle; shawn clement" Shawn
Your the best thank you so much for directing me here, I went out and worked on this and can now shape the ball. Can you please tell me why to do with the driver and fairway woods off the deck etc . Do the same principles apply ? Do you play the ball back a bit further ? Because I know you need to be able to sweep the ball. Please help I really appreciate it , cheers.
Do the same rules apply for the driver and fairway woods? Play them a ball back for a draw? It hanks
Great Question! This is for the irons; to see the ball position for woods, please check out "Rip The Driver; Shawn Clement" Shawn
this is the best golf instruction clip available. After watchin this, i can draw any club in the bag.
Shawn…. your instruction is just fabulous!!! I have hit a draw for many years now and at times struggle to hit the correc shot I should when it is called for. After watching all three of the videos on draw/face, I decided to go out on the course Sunday afternoon and concentrate on hitting just a fade with my irons. Played two rounds shooting a 78 on the first and a 74 on the second. Love the fade now and it is so much more manageable. Straight shots are now a thing of the past!!! Tnx!!
I love you. No homo, not that there's anything wrong with that. lol
But seriously… i love you. Thank you!!!!!!!
Great explanation! One of the best I have seen.
I am confused by the position of the club in each condition (fade / draw). The handle of the club is to the right for a draw and to the left for a fade. Is that intentional? Are we supposed to keep the handle to the right or left? In a draw, if I turn the club head closed and keep the handle in the middle, will it be more closed?
As always great explanation, shot shaping is such a vital skill to learn and master to reduce your scores. You have also explained where in the stance I need to have the ball to fade or draw.
Shawn:- would i change my body position when hitting the draw and fade? Or i just place or move the ball either front or back of my stance.
I like to try and draw every shot(less complicated and more consistent) your going to think I'm nuts but if I try and fade I hit a draw . I use the left hand dominant technique you promote which has changed my game amazingly Happy new year 2016 from Australia!
God, 2 minutes and a half of bla, bla, bla before you start demonstrating the technical mechanics. Painful.
