Hitting a Fade
by Chuck Quinton

Once you've learned the basic technique of the golf swing, you can begin learning to work the ball left to right, or a fade. Hitting a fade is a very useful shot to have in your game for more reasons than just getting at tucked pins. It is also useful for even the beginning one planer to understand what causes a fade and how to control it because so many golfers struggle with hooking the ball in the one plane swing when they first start out. Learning how to hit a fade gives you something to fall back on when you are releasing the club too much with the arms and hands and can quickly give you the proper sensation you are looking for through impact. In fact, many golfers I teach who struggle with hooking the ball, when I ask them to hit a fade, they almost invariably end up hitting the ball dead straight. So even if you are just starting out, don't hesitate to watch this video to get an idea of how to fade the ball.



Observe the picture below. In the picture on the left I am hitting a 3 yard fade and the picture on the right I'm hitting a 3 yard draw. Note that my swing has remained exactly the same, nothing changed other than the angle of my clubface. I've clearly held on to the release in the picture on the left and this has not only imparted a cut spin on the ball but launched it on a higher trajectory as well when compared to the shot where I hit a draw.





As I come into the finish, you can clearly see the angle in the clubface is significantly different. The one on the left is much more open as I have worked to keep the clubface open through the shot and the one on the right is more square or slightly closed. You can also see again the difference in trajectory here, the ball on the right is still significantly lower than that the one on the right.
