(ball curves from left to right)
To fade the ball, align your body to the left of the target with your club face pointing at
the target. For your normal straight shots, your shoulders are parallel to the target line but for the fade they should be open (pointing to the left of target), to make sure when you
swing on your shoulder line, your ball will start to the left of the target.
After starting left, your ball curves back to the target line due to an open club face at
impact. This puts spin on your ball providing the curve on your ball flight. Remember that even though your club face is square to the target at the set-up position, it is open in
relation to your swing line. Your finish-position should show the effect of quit hands and good body rotation through impact.
Note: A fade is a controlled small curve from left to right and lands the ball at the target.
A slice is an uncontrolled big curve to the right and the ball lands far right of the target.
