Re: How do you hit a power fade?

2: The power fade is a poor name I'd say. It is really just a fade with an in-to-out swing path. I would say this is a shot for those who hit the inside of the ball and usually hit a shot moving right to left. For someone with a stock shot moving left to right, they already got the fade. You can argue what is "natural". In my opinion, there is no natural swing path. It is a result of how you have changed your swing. Most start out with out-to-in. Some stay there, but perhaps less and with more control. Many get lessons and change the path to in-to-out. The final product is in most cases nothing "natural".
If you swing out-to-in, you don't need this shot, since your swing already produce it. The opposite for a fader would be a "power" draw, where you hit a draw with an out-to-in swing path.
For someone with an in-to-out swing path, the only think you tweak is the club face angle.
